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?
