The Originator Sura FaterQuran, 35:1-45
In the name of God,The most Merciful, the most Compassionate
Praise be to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, who made the angels messengers having wings, two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Allah is Competent over all things.
Whatever God grants of mercy to people none can withhold it; and whatever He withholds, none can release it thereafter. He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
Remember the favor of Allah upon you. Is there any creator other than Allah who provides for you from the Heaven and the Earth?
There is no deity except Him, so how are they turned away?
If they deny you, [O Muhammad] so were Messengers denied before you. To God all affairs are returned [for decision].
God's promise is true, so do not let the worldly life turn you away and do not let the devil [Satan] deceive you.
Indeed, satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blaze.
Those who disbelieve will have a severe punishment, and those who believe and do righteous deeds will have forgiveness and great reward.
Is the one whose evil deed is made attractive to him like the one rightly guided?
Verily, God leaves to stray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. So do not let yourself [O Muhammad] perish over them in regret. God is Knowing of what they do.
It is God Who sends forth the winds which stir up clouds that We drive to a lifeless land. Thereby, We give life to the earth after its death. And as such [will be] the Resurrection!
Whoever desires honor [should know that] to Allah belongs all honor. To Him ascends good speech, and He [accepts] and raises righteous work.
But they who plot evil deeds will have a severe punishment, and their plotting will perish.
God created you from dust, then from a spermdrop; then He made you pairs [male and female]. No female conceives nor does she give birth except with His knowledge.
And no aged person is granted [additional] life nor is his lifespan lessened but is in a Decree [ordained]. Indeed, that is easy for God.
Not alike are two bodies of water. One is fresh and sweet, palatable for drinking, and one is saline and acrid. And from each you eat tender meat and extract ornaments which you wear.
You see the ships plowing through them that you might seek of God's bounty; and may become grateful to Him. He causes the night to enter the day, and He causes the daylight to enter the night.
He subjected the sun and the moon each running [its course] for a specified term. That is Allah, your Lord; sovereignty belongs to Him.
And those whom you call other than Him do not possess [as much as] the membrane of a date seed. If you call up to them, they do not listen to your call; and if they listened to you, they would not respond to you. On the Day of Resurrection they will deny your association. None can inform you [the truth about them] like the One Who is Acquainted [with all matters].
It is you who are poor, in need of God, but God is the Self-Sufficient [Free of need], the Praiseworthy. If He wills, He can replace you and bring forth a new creation. That is not difficult for God.
No bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. If a heavily laden person calls another to carry some of his sins, nothing can be carried, even if he should be a close relative. You can only warn those who fear their Lord unseen and have established prayer to Him.
Whoever purifies himself does so for his own benefit. To God is the final destination.
Not alike are the blind and the seeing. Nor are the darkness and the light. Nor are the shade and the heat. Nor are the living and the dead alike.
Surely God makes whom He Wills hear [the truth], but those who are in graves you cannot make them hear [you].
You, [O Muhammad], are not but a warner. We have sent you with the truth as a bearer of good tidings and a warner. There was no nation but a warner had passed within it.
If they reject you, then other nations who lived before them had also rejected [their Messengers]. Our Messengers had brought them miracles, scriptures, and the enlightening Book. Then I seized the ones who disbelieved, and how [terrible] was My reproach.[revenge].
Do you not see that God sends down rain from the sky? Then We produce by it fruits of varying colors?
And in the mountains are streaks, white and red, of various hues and [others] are intensely black. Similarly people, animals and grazing livestock are of various colors. Only, of His servants, those who have knowledge do fear God [and appreciate His creation].
Surely God is All Mighty, All Forgiving.
Those who recite the Book of God, establish the prayer to Him, and spend in charity secretly and openly out of what We have provided for them, they have hope in a trade gain [with their Lord] that will never perish. God will give them their rewards in full and increase them of His grace. God is All-Forgiving and All-Appreciating.
[O Muhammad!] What We have revealed to you of the Book, is the Truth, confirming what is before it. God is Acquainted and Seeing of [all] His servants.
Then We gave the Book as an inheritance to our chosen servants. Some of them are unjust against themselves. Some of them are moderately devoted and some of them are forerunners in good deeds by permission of God. That is the great bounty [of God].
They will enter Gardens of Eternity. They will be adorned in them with bracelets of gold and pearls; their garments there will be of silk. They will say: Praise be to God, who has taken away all grief from us. Our Lord is All-forgiving, All-thankful. Out of His Bounty, He has settled us in a lasting Home that neither tiredness nor fatigue shall touch us in it.
But those who disbelieved, for them is the Fire of Hell. No term shall be determined for them, so they should die, nor will its punishment be lightened for them. Thus we recompense every persistent disbeliever. They will cry out in the: “Our Lord, remove us [from Hell]. We will do righteousness other than what we were doing."
[God will say]: Did not We grant you a lifelong enough for whoever would remember in it to remember? Did not the Warner come to you? So taste [the punishment you denied].
There is not any helper for the wrongdoers. Verily, God is the Knower of the unseen of the Heavens and the Earth.
He is Knowing of what is within the hearts. It is He who made you successors in the Earth.
Whoever disbelieves [the consequence of] his disbelief will be upon him. The disbelief of the disbelievers does not increase them in the sight of their Lord except in hatred; and the disbelief of the disbelievers does not increase them except in loss. Say: “Have you considered your ‘partners' whom you invoke besides God? Show me what they have created from the Earth! Or do they have partnership [with God] in the Heavens?
Or did We give them a book so they act on clear evidence from it? [No], rather, the wrongdoers do not promise each other except deception.
Allah holds the Heavens and the Earth from falling apart. If they do fall apart, no one could hold them [in place] after Him.He is Ever Most Forbearing, Oft-Forgiving.
They swore by God their strongest oaths that if a warner came to them, they would be more guided than [any] one of the [previous] nations. But when a warner came to them, it did not increase them but aversion [from the truth].
[They showed] arrogance in the land and plotting of evil; but the evil plot does not surround except its own people.
Then do they await God's decree of punishment that befell on the previous generations? You will never find any change in God's system or method, and you will never find in the manner of God any alteration.
Have they not traveled through the land and observed how the end of those before them was? They were greater than them in power.
But nothing is hard or difficult for God to do in Heavens or on the Earth. He is Ever Knowing and Competent.
If God were to impose blame on the people for what they have earned, He would not leave a living creature on the surface of the Earth [He will end life on our plant];
But He put them off for a specified term. When their time comes, then verily [they will know that] God is All-Seeing of the deeds of His servants.
And if whatever trees upon the earth were pens and the sea [was ink], replenished thereafter by seven [more] seas, the words of Allah would not be exhausted. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.
O you assembly of jinn and mankind! Didn’t there come to you messengers from among you, reciting to you My verses and warning you of the meeting of this day?
