Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha'. Mim. (1) By the Book that makes things clear,- (2) behold, We have made it an Arabic Koran; haply you will understand; (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) But there would not come to them a prophet except that they used to ridicule him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them; (9) (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way); (10) That sends down (from time to time) rain from the sky in due measure;- and We raise to life therewith a land that is dead; even so will ye be raised (from the dead);- (11) And the One Who created all pairs, and made the ships and cattle as rides for you. (12) That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them); (13) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (14) And from* His bondmen, they appointed a portion for Him; man is indeed an open ingrate. (* Appointed some of His creation as His sons and daughters). (15)
