ALIF LAM MIM.
These are the verses of the sagacious Book,
And a guidance and grace for those who do good,
Who are constant in devotion, pay the zakat, and are certain of the Hereafter.
They are on guidance from their Lord, and will prosper.
But among men are also those who spread frivolous stories to mislead (others) from the way of God, without any knowledge, and take it lightly. For such as these the nemesis will be shameful.
When Our verses are recited before them they turn away haughtily as though they did not hear them, as if a deafness had come into their ears. So give them tidings of a shameful punishment.
Surely for those who believe and do the right are pleasure gardens.
They will abide in them for ever. The promise of God is true; and He is all-mighty and all-wise.
He created the skies without a support, as you can see, and placed stabilisers in the earth that you may dwell at ease as it revolves; and dispersed on it all varieties of creatures, and He sent down water from the skies and grew all kinds of splendid things upon it.
Such is God's creation. Show me now what those (they worship) beside Him have created. Surely the evil-doers are in clear error.
