Surah Al-An’am

  1. All Praise to Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth and brought into being the darkness and the light,yet the infidels ascribe equals to their Lord.
  2. It is He Who created you from clay, then He decreed a term, and there is a determined promise with Him,thereafter you doubt.
  3. And He is the very Allah of heavens and earth He knows all your secrets and what you reveal and knows yourdoings.
  4. And there comes to them no sign of the signs of their, Lord, but they turn away, their faces from it.
  5. Then undoubtedly, they belied the truth when it came to then. So now, they are to be informed of that theywere mocking at.
  6. Have they not observed how many a generation We have destroyed before them? We gave them suchestablishment in the earth, which We gave you not, and We sent them rain in torrents and caused rivers flowbeneath them, then We destroyed them on account of their sins, and after them raised up another generation.
  7. And if We had sent down on you something written on paper so that they would have touched it with theirhands, even then the infidels would have said, ‘this is nothing but manifest magic’.
  8. And they said, ‘Why not any angel has been sent on him? And if We would have sent an angel the affair wouldhave been finished, and they would not have been given time.
  9. And if We had made the prophet an angel, even then We would have made him a man, and they would havethe same doubt in him as they have now.
  10. And assuredly, O beloved prophet! Messengers before you were mocked at; then those who were mocking atthem their mockery surrounded them selves.
  11. Say you, Go about in the land, then see how has been the end of beliers’.
  12. Say you, ‘To whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth? Say you ‘To Allah, ‘He has written mercyupon His generosity. Undoubtedly, He will surely gather you on the Day of judgement There is no doubt in it.Those who have put their souls in loss would not believe.
  13. And to Him belongs whatever dwells in the night and day. And He is the Hearer the Knower.
  14. Say you, ‘Shall I take for protector any other than Allah Who has created heavens and earth, and He feeds andis not fed? Say you; I have been commanded to submit first and never to be of polytheists.
  15. Say you; ‘If I disobey my Lord then, I fear the torment of a Mighty Day’.
  16. On that day, from whomsoever the torment is averted Allah indeed has had mercy on him And this is themanifest triumph.
  17. And if Allah causes any evil to you, then there is none to remove it but He. And if He brings you good, then Hecan do everything.
  18. And He is all Dominant over His bondmen. And He is the very Wise, the Aware.
  19. Say you, ‘Whose evidence is the greatest’? Say you, ‘Allah is witness between you and me this Quran has beenrevealed to me so that with it may warn you and whomsoever it reaches.’ Then do you give this evidence thatbesides Allah there are other gods? Say you ‘I do not give this evidence. ‘Say you, ‘He is the only one to beworshiped and I am quit of all those, you associate with Him’.
  20. Those whom We gave the Book recognise this prophet as they recognise their sons. Those who have put theirsouls in loss would not believe.
  21. And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or belies His signs Undoubtedly, the unjust willnever get prosperity.
  22. And the day when, We shall raise them all together then will say to the polytheists, ‘where are those yourassociates whom you used to assert’.
  23. Then there remained not any fabrication for them but to say, ‘by Allah, Our Lord, We were not polytheists.
  24. See! How they lied against themselves and were lost from them the things, which they had been concocting.
  25. And among them are some who give ear (listen) to you and, We have put veils over their hearts so that theyunderstand it not and in their ears is heaviness. And if they may see all signs even then they will not believe inthem. In as much as when they come to you disputing, then infidels say, ‘this is not but the stories of theancients.’
  26. And they forbid from it and keep a far from it and they ruin not but their own souls and they perceive not.
  27. And if you could see when they will be made to stand before the fire then they will say, ‘would that We mightbe resumed and belie not, the sighs of their Lord and might become Muslims.
  28. But it has become manifest to them what they used to conceal before. And if they were sent back, they woulddo the same from which they were forbidden and undoubtedly, they are surely liars.
  29. And they say, This is the only our life of the world and we are not to be raised’.
  30. And if you could see when they shall be made to stand before their Lord. He will say, is not this truth? They willsay, ‘why not by our, Lord’ He will say, ‘then now taste the torment, the reward of your infidelity.’
  31. Undoubtedly, they remained losers who denied the meeting with their Lord, so much so, that when the Hourcame to them suddenly, they said, ‘Oh alas for us, that we committed mistake in accepting it and that we bearour burden on our backs O what an evil burden they are bearing?
  32. And worldly life is nothing but a play and amusement. And undoubtedly, the last abode is better for those whofear. Do you not then?
  33. We know that what they say, grieves you, they belie you not, but the evil doers deny the signs of Allah.
  34. And the Messengers were belied before you, but they endured patiently when they were belied and werepersecuted, until Our help came to them. And there is none to change the words of Allah; and the news of theMessengers has already come to you.
  35. And if their turning away of faces has grieved you, then if you can do, seek any tunnel in the ground or aladder unto heaven, and bring a sign for them. And if Allah has willed, then He would have gathered them onthe guidance, so O listener! Be never you an innocent.
  36. Those very accept who listen, and Allah will raise those of dead hearts, then towards Him they will be driven.
  37. And they say, ‘why has not a sign been sent down to them from their Lord? Say you, ‘Allah has power to senddown a sign, but most of them are fully ignorant.
  38. And there is no one crawling on earth nor any bird that flies on its wings but are the communities like you. Wehave left out nothing in the Book. Then to their Lord they shall be raised.
  39. And those who belied Our signs are deaf and dumb in utter darkness. Allah sends astray whom He will, andplaces on the straight path whom He will.
  40. Say you, ‘tell you then if the torment of Allah comes to you or the Hour is established, will you call upon anyother than Allah, if you are truthful?
  41. But you will call Him alone, so if He please He would remove that for which you call for Him, and you wouldforget the associates.
  42. And undoubtedly, We sent; Messengers towards communities before you then seized them with adversity anddistress so that they might beseech.
  43. Why did it not happen that when Our torment came upon them, they would have beseeched? But their heartswere hardened and the devil (Satan) made fair seeming to them their deeds in their eyes.
  44. Then when they forget that with which they were admonished We opened unto them the gates of all thingsuntil when they became delighted at what they were given, then We seized them suddenly, now they were leftin disappear.
  45. Then the unjust were uprooted completely; and a praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.
  46. Say you, ‘look you, if Allah should take away your ears and eyes and seal up your hearts, then who is the Godother than Allah Who could bring these things back to you? See how in different manners We explain the signsbut they turn away their faces.
  47. Say you, look you, if the torment of Allah comes upon you suddenly or openly then who will be destroyed savethe unjust people.
  48. We do not send the Messengers but to give glad tidings and to warn, then those who believed and amendedthemselves then to them there is neither fear nor any grief.
  49. And those who belied Our signs, torment shall reach to them because of their disobedience.
  50. Say you, ‘I do not say to you, I possess the treasures, of Allah, ‘and nor I Say,’ I know the unseen myself, andnor do I say to you, ‘I am an angel. I follow only that which is revealed to me.’ Say you, shall the blind and theseeing become equal? Do you then not ponder?
  51. And with this Quran warn those who fear that they shall be raised towards their Lord in a manner that thereshall be neither supporter nor any intercessor for them beside Allah, in the hope that they may be come God-fearing.
  52. And drive not away those who call upon their Lord morning and evening seeking His pleasure. Nothing on youfrom their account, and nothing on them from your account, then if you drive them away, this thing is far fromjustice.
  53. And thus We made one of them a trial for the other on that the wealthy infidel may say seeing the needyMuslims, ‘Are these people whom Allah has favoured among us? Does not Allah know well the grateful?
  54. And when those who believe in Our signs come to you then say to them, ‘Peace be upon you,’ your Lord hasprescribed mercy on Himself, that whoso of you does some evil ignorantly and repents thereafter and amends,then undoubtedly, Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
  55. And in this way We explain fully Our signs, and in order that the way of the guilty may become evident.
  56. Say you, ‘I have been for bidden to worship those whom you worship besides Allah. ‘Say you, ‘I follow not yourvain desires, if it be so then I would go astray and would not remain, on the path’.
  57. Say you, ‘I am on a shinning proof from my Lord and you belie it; I have not that with me for which you arehastening.’ There is no order but of Allah. He explains the truth and He is the Best of judges.
  58. Say you ‘If I had that thing for which you are hastening, then the affair would have been already endedbetween me and you. And Allah knows well the oppressors.
  59. And with Him is the key of unseen, He only knows them And He knows whatever is in the land and in the sea.And the leaf that falls He knows it. And there is not any grain in the darkness of the earth, and nor anythingwet and nor dry which is not written in a luminous Book.
  60. And He is the very Who takes hold of your souls by night and knows whatever you earn by day, then He raisesyou in the day so that the appointed term may be completed, then you have to return towards Him, then Hewill tell you what you used to do.
  61. And He is the Dominant over His bondmen and He,’ sends guardians over you, until when death comes to anyof you, Our angels take his soul and they do not fail.
  62. Then they are turned back towards their true Lord Allah. (Do you hear?) His is the order and He is the Quickestin taking account.
  63. Say you, ‘Who is that Who delivers you from the calamities of the forest and sea Whom you call upon inhumility and secretly that if He saves us from this, then we shall certainly be grateful.
  64. Say you, Allah delivers you from this and from every distress, yet you associate partners with Him.
  65. Say you, ‘He is powerful to send torment on you from above you or from beneath your feet or He may makeyou to encounter by making different groups and to make you, taste the severity of one another,’ see, How Weexplain the signs in various ways haply they may understand.
  66. And your people belied it, and it is the truth. Say you; ‘I am not an advocate over you’.
  67. For every thing, there is a time fixed and soon you will come to know.
  68. And O listener! When you see those who plunge in Our signs then turn away your face from them until theyplunge in some other discourse, and whatever they say the devil (Satan) may make you forget then sit not youafter recollection with the unjust people.
  69. And there is nothing on the righteous from their account yes, but to admonish them, haply they may abstain.
  70. And leave those alone who have made their religion a mockery and play thing and the worldly life has deceivedthem and admonishes them with Quran, so that a soul may not be caught on account of its doings. It shallhave neither helper nor intercessor beside Allah. And if it gives every compensation for itself, it shall not beaccepted from it. These are they who have been caught on their doings. For them is a drink of boiling waterand painful torment, the recompense of their infidelity.
  71. Say you, ‘shall we worship beside Allah that which neither does us any good nor does any harm, and shall webe turned back on our heels, after that Allah has shown us the way, like one whom the devil has made toforget his way in the earth, he is bewildered, (while) his companions are calling him towards the way that cometo us? Say you, ‘The guidance of Allah is the only guidance, and we are commanded to submit to Him only whois the Lord of all worlds.
  72. And this that establishes prayer and fears Him and it is He towards Whom you are to rise.
  73. And it is He who has made the heavens and earth rightly. And the Day when the destruction will occur, He willsay to everything, ‘be then it will become atonce. His word is the truth. And His is the kingdom on the daywhen the trumpet will be blown He is the Knower of every secret and open and He is the Wise, the Aware.
  74. And remember when Abraham said to his father, Azar, ‘Do you take the idols for gods’? Undoubtedly, I find youand your people in manifest error.
  75. And thus We show to Abraham all the Kingdoms of heavens and earth and in Order that he might become ofthe convinced at sight.
  76. When the darkness of night came on him, he saw a star, said he, ‘you take this as my Lord! Then when it set,said he, ‘I do not like the setting ones’.
  77. Then when he saw the moon shining, said he, ‘you tell this my Lord, then when it set, said he, ‘if my Lordwould not have guided me I would also have been of tee same who have gone astray.’
  78. Then when he saw the sun shining, said he, au say this my Lord! This is biggest of all then when it set, said he’O people, I am quit of all those things which you associate with God.
  79. I diverted my face towards Him who have made the heavens and earth, being of Him only and I am not of thepolytheists.
  80. And his people began to dispute with him, said he, ‘do you dispute with me in respect of Allah, then He hasalready told me the way, and I do not fear those that you tell as His associates, but yes if my Lord, wishesanything. My Lord comprehends every thing in His knowledge. Then, do you not accept the admonition?
  81. And how should I fear those you associate and while you do not fear that you associated with Allah that forwhich He has not sent down to you any certificate. Then which of the two groups is more entitled for security,if you know?
  82. Those who have believed and mixed not any injustice with their faith, these are the people for whom there issecurity and they are the very who are guided.
  83. And this is Our argument that We gave to Ibraham against his people; We raise in degrees Whom we please.Undoubtedly, your Lord is Wise, Knowing.
  84. And We gave him Ishaque and Yaqub We showed the path to all of them and showed the path to Nuh beforethem, and of his progeny, to Daud and Suleman and Ayub and Yusuf and Musa and Haroon, and thus Werecompense the righteous.
  85. And to Zakaria (Zacharia) and Yahya (John) and Isa (Jesus) and Ilyas (Elias). These are all entitled to be Ournear ones (righteous)
  86. And to Ismail and Yasa (Elisha) and Yunus (Jonah) and Lot, And to each one We preferred above all in histime.
  87. And also to some of their fathers and their progeny and some of their brothers, and We chose them andshowed them the straight path.
  88. This is the guidance of Allah. He gives whom He will of His bondmen, and if they would have committedpolytheism, then surely, all that they had already done would have been destroyed.
  89. Those are they to whom We gave the Book and order and prophet-hood, then if these people reject it. ThenWe have appointed for it such a people who are not the rejecters.
  90. These are they whom Allah has guided, then follow you their path. Say you; I ask you no wage for Quran thatis not but an admonition to the entire world.
  91. And the Jews did not know the estimation of Allah as was necessary for Him when they said, ‘Allah has notsent down anything on any man.’ Say you, ‘who has sent down that Book which was brought by Moses, a lightand a guidance for the people of which you have made separate papers to show and much of it you conceal;and you are taught that which you knew not neither you nor your fathers ‘Say, ‘Allah.” Then leave them playingin their absurdity.
  92. And this is a blessed Book ‘ that We have sent down confirming those Books which were before it and in orderthat you may warn the chief of all cities (Mekkah) and to all those around it in the entire world. And those whobelieve in the Hereafter believe in this Book and guard their prayer.
  93. And who is more unjust than one who fabricates a lie ‘ against Allah or Says, ‘I have received a revelation andnothing has been revealed to him and who says, ‘just now I send down the like of what Allah has sent down,and if you could see the unjust when they are in the agonies of death and the angels have stretched theirhands; (saying) ‘yield up your souls’, this day you will be awarded the punishment of disgrace for you used toforge lie against Allah and because you were big with pride against His signs.
  94. And undoubtedly, you have come to US alone as We created you for the first time, and you have left behindyour backs whatever wealth and had given you; and We see not with you your intercessors of whom youasserted as your partners in your affairs, undoubtedly, the ties between you are cut off and gone is that fromyou who used to assert.
  95. Undoubtedly! Allah is the Cleaver of seed-grain and date stone. He brings forth the living from the dead and isthe Bringer forth of the dead from the living. This is Allah! Where are you going back?
  96. He brings forth the dawn after cleaving the darkness and He has made the night for rest and the sun andmoon as reckoning. This is the measurement of the Mighty, the Knowing.
  97. And it is He who has made the stars for you that you may get the way in the darkness of the Land and the sea.We have explained the signs in detail for people who know.
  98. And it is He who has produced you from a single soul, then you have to stay some where and to remain asrepository at some other place. Undoubtedly! We have explained the signs in detail for a people ofunderstanding.
  99. And it is He who has sent down water from the heaven, then We brought forth every things of growth and outof it We brought forth the green (foliage) from which We bring forth-clustered grains and out of the sheaths ofpalms the bunches close to one another and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, similar in somerespect and dissimilar in some other respects. Look at its fruit when it bears fruit and its ripening. Undoubtedlythere are signs in it for the persons believing.
  100. And they have made jinns as associates of Allah whereas He created them and they devised for him sons andDaughters without any knowledge. Holy is He and exalted far above from their affairs.
  101. The Originator of the heavens and earth, from where He have a son whereas there is no woman for Him andhe has created everything and He knows all things.
  102. This is Allah, your Lord none is to be worshipped except He, the Maker of every thing, then worships Him, He isGuardian over everything.
  103. Eyes comprehend Him not and all eyes are under His comprehension and it is He Who is the Innermost, AllAware.
  104. There have come to you the eye Opener arguments from your Lord, then whosoever saw it, then it is for hisown good and whosoever became blind, then it is for his own bad and I am not a guardian over you.
  105. And thus We variously explain the signs and because the infidels may say, ‘you have studied’ and that We maymake it clear over the people who know.
  106. Follow you what has been revealed to you, none is to be worshipped except He and turn your face from thepolytheists.
  107. And had Allah willed they would not have committed polytheism and We made not you watcher over them, norare you an advocate over them.
  108. And abuse not those whom they worship beside Allah because they will commit rudeness in respect of Allahthrough their excessiveness and ignorance. Thus We have mace fair the deeds of every nation in their eyes,then they have to return back towards their Lord and He will tell them what they used to do.
  109. And they swear by Allah in their oath with utmost earnest that if there come to them any sign then they wouldsurely believe therein. Say you, ‘The signs are with Allah and what you know that when they would come thenthey will not believe therein.
  110. And We turn about their hearts and their eyes, as they believed not therein at the first time and We leave themto wander about in their contumacy.
  111. And if We had sent down angels towards them and the dead had spoken to them and We had broughttogether all things before them, even then they would not believe but if Allah would have willed, but most ofthem are totally ignorant.
  112. And in like manner We have made for every prophet an enemy, devils from among men and jinn, that in themone inspires the other secretly with fabricated discourse in order to deceive and had your Lord wished, theywould not have done so then leave them on their fabrications.
  113. And because that the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter may incline towards it, and that theymay like it, and may earn sin what they are to earn.
  114. Then, shall I seek the judgement of some one other than Allah, when it is He who has sent down towards youthis detailed Book? And those whom We have given the Book know that it is sent down by your Lord in truth;so O’ Listener’ be never then of the doubters.
  115. And Complete is the word of your Lord in veracity and justice. There is no one to change His words: and He isthe Hearer, the Knower.
  116. And O listener! There are majority of those on earth that if you follow their saying, then they would misleadyou from the way of Allah. They are only behind their imaginations and they are in mere conjecture.
  117. Your Lord knows well who has gone astray from His way, and He knows well the guided ones.
  118. Then eat of that on which the name of Allah has been pronounced, if you believe in His signs.
  119. And what happened to you that you should not eat out of that on which the name of Allah has beenpronounced. He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you, but when you be compelled to it? Andundoubtedly, many mislead by their own desires without knowing. Undoubtedly, your Lord knows well thetransgressors.
  120. And leave the apparent and secret sins. Those who earn sin, soon they will get punishment of their earning.
  121. And eat not that over which the name of Allah has not been pronounced for undoubtedly that is dis-obedienceAnd Surely the devils inspire their friends that they may quarrel with you, and if you obey them, then at thattime you are polytheist.
  122. And will he who was dead, then We gave him life, and made for him a light by which he walks among mankind,become like that who is in darkness from which he is not to come out? Thus, in the eyes of infidels their deedshave been made fair looking.
  123. And thus have We made in each town the leaders of the guilty, so that they may plot therein. And they plot notbut against their own souls, and they perceive not.
  124. And when any sign comes to them, then they say, ‘We shall never believe unless we receive the like of whathas been given to the Messengers of Allah. Allah knows well where to place His Messenger-ship. Soon theguilty ones will receive humiliation before Allah and severe torment for their plotting.
  125. And whomsoever Allah wishes to show the way, He opens his breast for Islam, and whomsoever wishes to losehis way, He makes his breast narrow, straitened well as if he is climbing up into the sky forced by some oneelse And thus Allah inflicts Punishment on those who believe not.
  126. And this is the straight path of your Lord. We have explained the signs in detail for the people acceptingadmonition.
  127. For them is the home of safety with their Lord, and He is their Protector, this is the fruit of their doings.
  128. And the day He will raise all of them and will say, ‘O company of Jinn! You have gathered many men,” andtheir allies among men will say. ‘O our Lord! We made use of one another and we have reached the term youhad determined for us.’ He will say, ‘Fire is your abode, abide therein for ever but as Allah will.’ O belovedprophet Undoubtedly your Lord is Wise, Knowing.
  129. And thus We set over one against the other among the unjust for what they have done.
  130. ‘O company of Jinn and men! Did not Messengers come to you from amongst yourselves reciting My signs toyou, and warning you of seeing this day of yours? They will say, We bear witness against our souls,’ and theworldly life deceived them and will themselves bear witness against their souls that they were infidels.
  131. This is so because your Lord destroys not the town unjustly while their people are unaware.
  132. And for every one there are degrees in accordance with their deeds. And your Lord is not unaware of theiractions.
  133. And O beloved prophet’ Your Lord is Self sufficient, Merciful O mankind! If He please, He may take you away,and bring some other whom He will in your place, just as He created you from the off springs of other people.
  134. Undoubtedly, what is promised to you is sure to come and you cannot get it tired.
  135. Say you. ‘O my people! Go on acting in your places do my work, ‘then now you wish to know for whomremains the ultimate Abode. Undoubtedly, the unjust get not the welfare.
  136. And whatever filth and cattle Allah has produced they made Him a sharer in them, then said, ‘this is for Allahaccording to their fancies and this is for our associates.’ Then that which is of their associates does not reachGod and that which is for God reaches their associates. What an evil judgement they assign?
  137. And thus their associates have made fair-seeming the killing of offsprings in the eyes of many polytheists, sothat they may ruin them and may confuse them in their religion. And had Allah willed, they would not havedone so, then you leave them, they are with their fabrications.
  138. And they say, ‘this cattle and tilth are taboo, only those can eat them whom We please with their false notions,and there are some cattle over which riding is forbidden, and some cattle over which they do not pronouncethe name of Allah at the time of slaughtering, this all is to assert lie against Allah. Soon He shall recompensethem for their fabrications.
  139. And they say, ‘what is: within the bellies of those cattle solely belong to our males and is forbidden to ourwomen, and if it be born dead, then they all are partners therein. Soon Allah will recompense them for theirsuch actions. Undoubtedly He is Wise, knowing.
  140. Undoubtedly, those who kill their offsprings by their foolish ignorance are ruined and make unlawful what Allahhas provided for them, forging a lie against Allah. Undoubtedly, they have strayed and have not got the way.
  141. And it is He who has produced gardens, trellised and untrellised, and date palms and filth in which are variouskinds of food and olives and pomegranates similar in some respects and dis-similar in some other respects. Eatof their fruits when bear fruits and pay due thereof on the day of harvesting, and spend not wastefully.Undoubtedly, He does not like those who spend wastefully
  142. And of the cattle some are for carrying burden and some lying on earth (too small) Eat of what Allah hasprovided for you and do not follow the footsteps of the devil (Satan). Undoubtedly, he is your open enemy.
  143. Eight males and females, one pair of sheep and one pair of goat; say you, ‘has He made both males unlawfulor both females or that which the wombs of two females contain? Inform by any knowledge, if you aretruthful.’
  144. And a pair of camel and a pair of cow; say you, ‘has He made both males unlawful or both females or thatwhich the wombs of both females contain?” Were you present when Allah gave you this order, then who ismore unjust than one who forges lie against Allah, that he may misguide the people with his ignorance.Undoubtedly, Allah does not show the path to unjust.
  145. Say you, ‘I find not in what has been revealed to me any meal forbidden to any eater, but that it be a deadbody, or flowing blood of veins or the flesh of a vile animal (swine) for that is foul or an animal of disobediencein slaughtering of which the name other than God has been pronounced, then whoso is driven by necessityneither willing himself nor exceeding beyond the necessity, then undoubtedly. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
  146. And to the Jews We forbade every animal having hoofs and the fat of cow and goat We forbade them but whattheir backs or intestines carry or what is attached to their bones. We recompensed them for their contumacy,and undoubtedly, We are surely the Truthful.
  147. Again if they belie you say you, ‘your Lord is of extensive mercy and His torment is not turned aside from theguilty people.’
  148. Now the polytheists say, ‘if Allah had willed, we would not have committed polytheism, neither our fore-fathers,nor had We forbidden anything.’ In the same manner belied those who were before them until they tasted Ourtorment. Say you, ‘Have you any knowledge that you bring it forth to us? You are only behind your conjectureand without nothing you estimate.
  149. Say you, ‘then the argument of Allah is conclusive; so if He had wished, then. He would have guided you all.’
  150. Say you, ‘Bring your those witnesses who testify that Allah has forbidden this, ‘then if they testify, then you Olistener! Bear not witness with them, and follow not the desires of those who belie Our signs, and who believenot in the Hereafter, and they ascribe equals to their Lord.
  151. Say you, ‘Come I will rehearse to you what your Lord has forbidden to you, ‘that you associate not anyone withHim, and that you do good to parents, and that you kill not your children because of poverty. We shall providefor you and for them, and that you approach not shameful deeds whichever them is open and whichever ishidden; and slay not unjustly the life which Allah has made sacred. This has He ordered you that you mayunderstand.
  152. And do not approach the property of the orphans but in the best way, until he reaches the maturity and fill upthe measure and weight with justice. We burden no soul but to its capacity, and when you speak, then sayjust, event though it be a matter of your relative, and fulfil the covenant of Allah. This He has en-joined youstrictly that haply you may accept admonition.
  153. And that, this is My’ straight path, then follow it and follow not other paths for they will deviate you from Hispath. This He has ordered you that haply you may be self-restrained.
  154. Again We gave the Book to Moses for doing full favour upon him who is righteous, and the details ofeverything, and a guidance and mercy that haply they may believe in the meeting of their Lord.
  155. And this blessed Book We have sent down, follow it then and be self-restrained, so that you may receivemercy.
