1The All-merciful
2has taught the Koran.
3He created man
4and He has taught him the Explanation.
5The sun and the moon to a reckoning,
6and the stars and the trees bow themselves;
7and heaven -- He raised it up, and set the Balance.
8(Transgress not in the Balance,
9and weigh with justice, and skimp not in the Balance.)
10And earth -- He set it down for all beings,
11therein fruits, and palm-trees with sheaths,
12and grain in the blade, and fragrant herbs.
13O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
14He created man of a clay like the potter's,
15and He created the jinn of a smokeless fire.
16O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
17Lord of the Two Easts, Lord of the Two Wests,
18O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
19He let forth the two seas that meet together,
20between them a barrier they do not overpass.
21O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
22From them come forth the pearl and the coral.
23O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
24His too are the ships that run, raised up in the sea like land-marks.
25O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
26All that dwells upon the earth is perishing,
27yet still abides the Face of thy Lord, majestic, splendid.
28O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
29Whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth implore Him; every day He is upon some labour.
30O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
31We shall surely attend to you at leisure, you weight and you weight!
32O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
33O tribe of jinn and of men, if you are able to pass through the confines of heaven and earth, pass through them! You shall not pass through except with an authority.
34O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
35Against you shall be loosed a flame of fire, and molten brass; and you shall not be helped.
36O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
37And when heaven is split asunder, and turns crimson like red leather --
38O which of our Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
39on that day none shall be questioned about his sin, neither man nor jinn.
40O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
41The sinners shall be known by their mark, and they shall be seized by their forelocks and their feet.
42O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
43This is Gehenna, that sinners cried lies to;
44they shall go round between it and between hot, boiling water.
45O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
46But such as fears the Station of his Lord, for them shall be two gardens --
47O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
48abounding in branches --
49O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
50therein two fountains of running water --
51O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
52therein of every fruit two kinds --
53O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
54reclining upon couches lined with brocade, the fruits of the gardens nigh to gather --
55O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
56therein maidens restraining their glances, untouched before them by any man or jinn --
57O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
58lovely as rubies, beautiful as coral --
59O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
60Shall the recompense of goodness be other than goodness?
61O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
62And besides these shall be two gardens --
63O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
64green, green pastures --
65O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
66therein two fountains of gushing water --

75O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
76reclining upon green cushions and lovely druggets --
77O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
78Blessed be the Name of thy Lord, majestic, splendid.
