67

67:1 - Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things.

67:2 - Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving,

67:3 - Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Canst thou see any rifts?

67:4 - Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim.

67:5 - And verily We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the devils, and for them We have prepared the doom of flame.

67:6 - And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end!

67:7 - When they are flung therein they hear its roaring as it boileth up,

67:8 - As it would burst with rage. Whenever a (fresh) host is flung therein the wardens thereof ask them: Came there unto you no warner?

67:9 - They say: Yea, verily, a warner came unto us; but we denied and said: Allah hath naught revealed; ye are in naught but a great error.

67:10 - And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames.

67:11 - So they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames.

67:12 - Lo! those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward.

67:13 - And keep your opinion secret or proclaim it, lo! He is Knower of all that is in the breasts (of men).

67:14 - Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtile, the Aware.

67:15 - He it is Who hath made the earth subservient unto you, so Walk in the paths thereof and eat of His providence. And unto Him will be the resurrection (of the dead).

67:16 - Have ye taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not cause the earth to swallow you when lo! it is convulsed?

67:17 - Or have ye taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not let loose on you a hurricane? But ye shall know the manner of My warning.

67:18 - And verily those before them denied, then (see) the manner of My wrath (with them)!

67:19 - Have they not seen the birds above them spreading out their wings and closing them? Naught upholdeth them save the Beneficent. Lo! He is Seer of all things.

67:20 - Or who is he that will be an army unto you to help you instead of the Beneficent? The disbelievers are in naught but illusion.

67:21 - Or who is he that will provide for you if He should withhold His providence? Nay, but they are set in pride and frowardness.

67:22 - Is he who goeth groping on his face more rightly guided, or he who walketh upright on a straight road?

67:23 - Say (unto them, O Muhammad): He it is who gave you being, and hath assigned unto you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give ye!

67:24 - Say: He it is Who multiplieth you in the earth, and unto Whom ye will be gathered.

67:25 - And they say: When (will) this promise (be fulfilled), if ye are truthful?

67:26 - Say: The knowledge is with Allah only, and I am but a plain warner;

67:27 - But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve will be awry, and it will be said (unto them): This is that for which ye used to call.

67:28 - Say (O Muhammad): Have ye thought: Whether Allah causeth me (Muhammad) and those with me to perish or hath mercy on us, still, who will protect the disbelievers from a painful doom?

67:29 - Say: He is the Beneficent. In Him we believe and in Him we put our trust. And ye will soon know who it is that is in error manifest.

67:30 - Say: Have ye thought: If (all) your water were to disappear into the earth, who then could bring you gushing water?
