Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
HA MIM. (1) By the Clear Book; (2) Indeed, We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you might understand. (3) And the Qur’an is undoubtedly, in the Original Book with Us, surely the exalted, full of wisdom. (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) And how many a Prophet have We sent amongst the men of old. (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) So We destroyed far more powerful (nations) than they. The example of earlier people is there. (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) [The one] who has made for you the earth a bed and made for you upon it roads that you might be guided (10) And Who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the dead), (11) it is He who created all living things in pairs and gave you ships to sail in and beasts to ride upon (12) That you may firmly sit on their backs, then remember the favor of your Lord when you are firmly seated thereon, and say: Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it (13) Surely we have to go back to our Lord." (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)
