Book 64


The Mutual Deceit

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[64.1]

Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth declares the glory of Allah;
to Him belongs the kingdom,
and to Him is due (all) praise,
and He has power over all things.

[64.2]

He it is Who created you,
but one of you is an unbeliever and another of you is a believer;
and Allah sees what you do.

[64.3]

He created the heavens and the earth with truth,
and He formed you,
then made goodly your forms,
and to Him is the ultimate resort.

[64.4]

He knows what is in the heavens and the earth,
and He knows what you hide and what you manifest;
and Allah is Cognizant of what is in the hearts.

[64.5]

Has there not come to you the story of those who disbelieved before,
then tasted the evil result of their conduct,
and they had a painful punishment?

[64.6]

That is because there came to them their apostles with clear arguments,
but they said:
Shall mortals guide us?
So they disbelieved and turned back,
and Allah does not stand in need (of anything),
and Allah is Self-sufficient,
Praised.

[64.7]

Those who disbelieve think that they shall never be raised.
Say:
Aye!
by my Lord!
you shall most certainly be raised,
then you shall most certainly be informed of what you did;
and that is easy to Allah.

[64.8]

Therefore believe in Allah and His Apostle and the Light which We have revealed;
and Allah is Aware of what you do.

[64.9]

On the day that He will gather you for the day of gathering,
that is the day of loss and gain;
and whoever believes in Allah and does good,
He will remove from him his evil and cause him to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow,
to abide therein forever;
that is the great achievement.

[64.10]

And (as for) those who disbelieve and reject Our communications,
they are the inmates of the fire,
to abide therein and evil is the resort.

[64.11]

No affliction comes about but by Allah's permission;
and whoever believes in Allah,
He guides aright his heart;
and Allah is Cognizant of all things.

[64.12]

And obey Allah and obey the Apostle,
but if you turn back,
then upon Our Apostle devolves only the clear delivery (of the message).

[64.13]

Allah,
there is no god but He;
and upon Allah,
then,
let the believers rely.

[64.14]

O you who believe!
surely from among your wives and your children there is an enemy to you;
therefore beware of them;
and if you pardon and forbear and forgive,
then surely Allah is Forgiving,
Merciful.

[64.15]

Your possessions and your children are only a trial,
and Allah it is with Whom is a great reward.

[64.16]

Therefore be careful of (your duty to) Allah as much as you can,
and hear and obey and spend,
it is better for your souls;
and whoever is saved from the greediness of his soul,
these it is that are the successful.

[64.17]

If you set apart for Allah a goodly portion,
He will double it for you and forgive you;
and Allah is the Multiplier (of rewards),
Forbearing,

[64.18]

The Knower of the unseen and the seen,
the Mighty,
the Wise.
