In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Ha-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (1) By this luminous Book. (2) Verily We! We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that haply ye may reflect. (3) And verily, it is in the Mother of the Book, in Our Presence, high (in dignity), full of wisdom. (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) How many a Prophet We sent among the ancients, (6) no Prophet came to them except that they mocked him, (7) So We destroyed (them)- stronger in power than these;- and (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old. (8) And if you ask them, “Who has created the heavens and the earth?”, they will surely say, “They are created by the Most Honourable, the All Knowing.” (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected. (11) And who created the species, all of them, and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount. (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return! (14) Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed! (15)
