This is the good news that God gives to His creatures who believe and do good. Say: "I ask no recompense of you for it other than obligations of relationship." We shall give more excellence to him who acquires excellence. Surely God forgives and accepts (gratitude).
Do they say he has fabricated a lie about God? He could have sealed your hearts if He pleased; but God blots out the false and vindicates the truth by His dispensations, for He knows the secrets of the hearts.
It is He who accepts repentance from His creatures and forgives their trespasses, for He knows what you do.
He answers (the prayers) of those who believe and do good, and gives them more of His bounty. But for the unbelievers there is severe punishment.
If God were to give in abundance to His creatures they would fill the earth with oppression. So He gives according to measure as He will. He knows (what is good for) His creatures. He is all-aware and all-seeing.
It is He who sends down rain when they had despaired of it, and showers His benevolence. He is the protector worthy of praise.
The creation of the heavens and the earth and all the living things dispersed in them, are a sign of His. He has the power to gather them together when He will.
Whatever misfortune befalls you is a consequence of your deeds; yet He forgives much.
You cannot thwart Him on the earth, and have no friend or helper apart from Him.
