        الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ فَاطِرِ السَّمَوَتِ وَالأرْضِ جَاعِلِ الْمَلائِكَةِ رُسُلا أُولِي أَجْنِحَةٍ مَثْنَى وَثُلاثَ وَرُبَاعَ يَزِيدُ فِي الْخَلْقِ مَا يَشَاءُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ  
  3659 1596 1223 749 1376(2060,2061) 35:1      Praise God initiator of the skies and the land, dispatcher of the angels as messengers, possessing two, three and four wings. He increases the creation as He wills.  Surely God is All Powerful over all things.   
        مَا يَفْتَحِ اللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ مِنْ رَحْمَةٍ فَلا مُمْسِكَ لَهَا وَمَا يُمْسِكْ فَلا مُرْسِلَ لَهُ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ  
  3660 1597 1224 750 1377(2062) 915 35:2      What God bestows upon the people from mercy, no one can stop it, and whatever He stops no one can grant it afterwards. And He is The Almighty, The All Wise   
        يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اذْكُرُوا نِعْمَةَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ هَلْ مِنْ خَالِقٍ غَيْرُ اللَّهِ يَرْزُقُكُمْ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالأرْضِ لا إِلَهَ إِلا هُوَ فَأَنَّى تُؤْفَكُونَ  
  3661 1598 1225 751 1378(2063,2064) 916 35:3      O you people; remember God's blessings upon you. Is there any other creator besides God who provides for you from the skies and the land? There is no god except He, therefore, how can you deviate?   
        وَإِنْ يُكَذِّبُوكَ فَقَدْ كُذِّبَتْ رُسُلٌ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ تُرْجَعُ الأمُورُ  
  3662 1599 1226 752 1379(2065) 35:4      And if they reject you, so were rejected messengers before you. And to God all matters will be referred.    
        يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ فَلا تَغُرَّنَّكُمُ الْحَيَوةُ الدُّنْيَا وَلا يَغُرَّنَّكُمْ بِاللَّهِ الْغَرُورُ  
  3663 1600 1227 753 1380(2066,2067) 917 35:5      O you people; God's promise is the truth; therefore, do not be deceived by this worldly life and do not be distracted from God by an illusion.   
        إِنَّ الشَّيْطَنَ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّا إِنَّمَا يَدْعُو حِزْبَهُ لِيَكُونُوا مِنْ أَصْحَبِ السَّعِيرِ  
  3664 1601 1228 754 35:6     Indeed Satan is your enemy; therefore, you shall treat him as an enemy. Surely, he invites his party to become dwellers of the blazing Hell.   
        الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّلِحَتِ لَهُمْ مَغْفِرَةٌ وَأَجْرٌ كَبِيرٌ   
  3665 1602 1229 755 918 35:7     As for the unfaithful, awaiting them is an ultimate suffering, and as for those who believed and led a righteous life, reserved for them are forgiveness and a great recompense.    
        أَفَمَنْ زُيِّنَ لَهُ سُوءُ عَمَلِهِ فَرَآهُ حَسَنًا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يُضِلُّ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَيَهْدِي مَنْ يَشَاءُ فَلا تَذْهَبْ نَفْسُكَ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسَرَاتٍ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ  
  3666 1603 1230 756 1381(2068,2069) 35:8     Have you noted the one whose evil deeds have been adorned for him to the extent that he sees them as good deeds? Surely, God misleads whomever He wills and guides whomever He wills, therefore, do not put yourself out worrying about them. Surely, God fully knows what they are concocting.   
        وَاللَّهُ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ الرِّيَاحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابًا فَسُقْنَاهُ إِلَى بَلَدٍ مَيِّتٍ فَأَحْيَيْنَا بِهِ الأرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا كَذَلِكَ النُّشُورُ  
  3667 1604 1231 757 1382(2070) 35:9     And God is the One who sends the wind to stir up the clouds; We then drive it towards the dead town whereby We revive the dead land. Such is resurrection.    
        مَنْ كَانَ يُرِيدُ الْعِزَّةَ فَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ جَمِيعًا إِلَيْهِ يَصْعَدُ الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ وَالْعَمَلُ الصَّلِحُ يَرْفَعُهُ وَالَّذِينَ يَمْكُرُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَكْرُ أُولَئِكَ هُوَ يَبُورُ   
  3668 1605 1232 758 1383(2071) 35:10     Whoever seeks dignity, shall realize that all dignity belongs to God. To Him ascends the pure utterance, and He exalts righteous deeds. As for those who scheme evil, reserved for them is an ultimate suffering; and their scheming will be null and void.   
        وَاللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلَكُمْ أَزْوَجًا وَمَا تَحْمِلُ مِنْ أُنْثَى وَلا تَضَعُ إِلا بِعِلْمِهِ وَمَا يُعَمَّرُ مِنْ مُعَمَّرٍ وَلا يُنْقَصُ مِنْ عُمُرِهِ إِلا فِي كِتَبٍ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ  
  3669 1606 1233 759 1384(2072,2073) 919 35:11     And God is the One who created you from clay then from semen, then, he created for you spouses. And no female gets pregnant nor does she give birth except by His knowledge.  And no one attains a long life and no one's lifespan is cut short, except according to a record. Surely this is easy for God.   
        وَمَا يَسْتَوِي الْبَحْرَانِ هَذَا عَذْبٌ فُرَاتٌ سَائِغٌ شَرَابُهُ وَهَذَا مِلْحٌ أُجَاجٌ وَمِنْ كُلٍّ تَأْكُلُونَ لَحْمًا طَرِيًّا وَتَسْتَخْرِجُونَ حِلْيَةً تَلْبَسُونَهَا وَتَرَى الْفُلْكَ فِيهِ مَوَاخِرَ لِتَبْتَغُوا مِنْ فَضْلِهِ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ  
  3670 1607 1234 760 35:12     And the two seas are not the same; this one is fresh water, delicious to drink, while that one is salty, completely salty. And from each one you eat fresh meat and extract jewelry to wear. And you see the ship sailing in its midst for you to seek His bounty so that you may be appreciative.     
        يُولِجُ اللَّيْلَ فِي النَّهَارِ وَيُولِجُ النَّهَارَ فِي اللَّيْلِ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ كُلٌّ يَجْرِي لأجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ذَلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبُّكُمْ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَالَّذِينَ تَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِهِ مَا يَمْلِكُونَ مِنْ قِطْمِيرٍ  
  3671 1608 1235 761 1385(2074) 920 35:13     He merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night and He subdued the sun and the moon each floating for a specific interim. Such is God, your Lord, to Him belongs the kingship. As for those who call upon ones besides Him, they do not even own the dry shell of a date palm.   
        إِنْ تَدْعُوهُمْ لا يَسْمَعُوا دُعَاءَكُمْ وَلَوْ سَمِعُوا مَا اسْتَجَابُوا لَكُمْ وَيَوْمَ الْقِيَمَةِ يَكْفُرُونَ بِشِرْكِكُمْ وَلا يُنَبِّئُكَ مِثْلُ خَبِيرٍ  
  3672 1609 1236 762 35:14     If you call them, they cannot hear your call and even if they hear, they cannot respond to you, and on the Day of Resurrection they disown your act of setting up partners for god. And no one informs you like the All Cognizant.   
        يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَنْتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ  
  3673 1610 1237 763 1386(2075,2076) 35:15     O you people, you are the needy in front of God, while God is Rich, Praiseworthy.   
        إِنْ يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ وَيَأْتِ بِخَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ  
  3674 1611 1238 764 35:16     If He wills, He can wipe you out and replace you with a new creation.   
        وَمَا ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ بِعَزِيزٍ  
  3675 1612 1239 765 1387(2077) 921 35:17     And this is not difficult for God.    
        وَلا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَى وَإِنْ تَدْعُ مُثْقَلَةٌ إِلَى حِمْلِهَا لا يُحْمَلْ مِنْهُ شَيْءٌ وَلَوْ كَانَ ذَا قُرْبَى إِنَّمَا تُنْذِرُ الَّذِينَ يَخْشَوْنَ رَبَّهُمْ بِالْغَيْبِ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلوةَ وَمَنْ تَزَكَّى فَإِنَّمَا يَتَزَكَّى لِنَفْسِهِ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ الْمَصِيرُ  
  3676 1613 1240 766 1388(2078) 35:18     And no one carries another one's sin. And if he calls for a load to be carried no one will carry it even if they are relatives. Surely, only those who fear their Lord in their privacy and observe the contact prayer will take heed. And whoever purifies himself, he only purifies his own soul. And to God is the ultimate return.   
        وَمَا يَسْتَوِي الأعْمَى وَالْبَصِيرُ  
  3677 1614 1241 767 922 35:19     And the blind and the seer are not equal -    
        وَلا الظُّلُمَتُ وَلا النُّورُ  
  3678 1615 1242 768 35:20     -and neither are the darkness and the light -   
        وَلا الظِّلُّ وَلا الْحَرُورُ  
  3679 1616 1243 769 35:21     -and neither are the shade and the blazing sun.   
        وَمَا يَسْتَوِي الأحْيَاءُ وَلا الأمْوَاتُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُسْمِعُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَمَا أَنْتَ بِمُسْمِعٍ مَنْ فِي الْقُبُورِ  
  3680 1617 1244 770 1389(2079) 35:22     And the living and the dead are not the same. Indeed God makes whomever He wills to hear and you cannot make hearers of those who are already in graves.   
        إِنْ أَنْتَ إِلا نَذِيرٌ  
  3681 1618 1245 771 923 35:23     You are no more than a warner.    
        إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَكَ بِالْحَقِّ بَشِيرًا وَنَذِيرًا وَإِنْ مِنْ أُمَّةٍ إِلا خَلا فِيهَا نَذِيرٌ  
  3682 1619 1246 772 35:24     We have surely sent you truthfully as a bearer of good news as well as a warner. And there is not a single people who does not have a warner in its midst.   
        وَإِنْ يُكَذِّبُوكَ فَقَدْ كَذَّبَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ جَاءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَتِ وَبِالزُّبُرِ وَبِالْكِتَبِ الْمُنِيرِ  
  3683 1620 1247 773 35:25     And if they reject you, so rejected those before them; as their messengers went to them with proofs, with Psalms and enlightening scripture.    
        ثُمَّ أَخَذْتُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَكَيْفَ كَانَ نَكِيرِ  
  3684 1621 1248 774 35:26     Thereafter, I punished those who disbelieved, and how terrible were the consequences for those who denied Me.    
        أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ ثَمَرَاتٍ مُخْتَلِفًا أَلْوَانُهَا وَمِنَ الْجِبَالِ جُدَدٌ بِيضٌ وَحُمْرٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهَا وَغَرَابِيبُ سُودٌ  
  3685 1622 1249 775 1390(2080) 35:27     Do you not see that God sends the water from the sky and grows with it all kinds of fruits with various colors? And also the mountains are markers with white and red colors as well as very dark ones.    
        وَمِنَ النَّاسِ وَالدَّوَابِّ وَالأنْعَامِ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ كَذَلِكَ إِنَّمَا يَخْشَى اللَّهَ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْعُلَمَاءُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ غَفُورٌ  
  3686 1623 1250 776 1391(2081,2082) 35:28     And the people and the animals and the livestock possess different colors as well. Only those who fear God from amongst His servants are the knowledgeable ones. Indeed God is Almighty, All Forgiver.     
        إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ كِتَبَ اللَّهِ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلوةَ وَأَنْفَقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَهُمْ سِرًّا وَعَلانِيَةً يَرْجُونَ تِجَارَةً لَنْ تَبُورَ  
  3687 1624 1251 777 1392(2083) 924 35:29     Surely those who recite God's book and observe the contact prayer and spend from what We provide for them, secretly and publicly, are seeking a trade that never fails.     
        لِيُوَفِّيَهُمْ أُجُورَهُمْ وَيَزِيدَهُمْ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ إِنَّهُ غَفُورٌ شَكُورٌ   
  3688 1625 1252 778 35:30     He will pay them their recompense and give them even more from His bounty. Indeed, He is All Forgiving, Appreciative.   
        وَالَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَبِ هُوَ الْحَقُّ مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِعِبَادِهِ لَخَبِيرٌ بَصِيرٌ  
  3689 1626 1253 779 1393(2084) 925 35:31     And what We inspire to you from the scripture is the truth, confirming what they already have. Indeed God is Cognizant, All Seer over His servants.   
        ثُمَّ أَوْرَثْنَا الْكِتَبَ الَّذِينَ اصْطَفَيْنَا مِنْ عِبَادِنَا فَمِنْهُمْ ظَلِمٌ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمِنْهُمْ مُقْتَصِدٌ وَمِنْهُمْ سَابِقٌ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْكَبِيرُ  
  3690 1627 1254 780 1394(2085) 35:32     Subsequently, We let Our chosen servants inherit the scripture, and amongst them were those who transgressed their own souls, and some were frugal, while some raced towards righteousness by God's leave. This is the greatest bounty.    
        جَنَّتُ عَدْنٍ يَدْخُلُونَهَا يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيهَا مِنْ أَسَاوِرَ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ وَلُؤْلُؤًا وَلِبَاسُهُمْ فِيهَا حَرِيرٌ  
  3691 1628 1255 781 35:33     They enter Gardens of Eden wherein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearl and their clothes therein will be made of silk.   
        وَقَالُوا الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَذْهَبَ عَنَّا الْحَزَنَ إِنَّ رَبَّنَا لَغَفُورٌ شَكُورٌ  
  3692 1629 1256 782 1395(2086) 35:34     And they say, praise God for removing all our worries. Indeed our Lord is All Forgiving, Appreciative.   
        الَّذِي أَحَلَّنَا دَارَ الْمُقَامَةِ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ لا يَمَسُّنَا فِيهَا نَصَبٌ وَلا يَمَسُّنَا فِيهَا لُغُوبٌ  
  3693 1630 1257 783 35:35     The One who provided for us the eternal abode wherein we never suffer any hardship nor do we suffer any fatigue.  
        وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَهُمْ نَارُ جَهَنَّمَ لا يُقْضَى عَلَيْهِمْ فَيَمُوتُوا وَلا يُخَفَّفُ عَنْهُمْ مِنْ عَذَابِهَا كَذَلِكَ نَجْزِي كُلَّ كَفُورٍ  
  3694 1631 1258 784 35:36     As for the unfaithful, the fire of Gehenna awaits them; as death is not decreed for them and the suffering never will be reduced for them. We thus requite all those who are unappreciative.  
        وَهُمْ يَصْطَرِخُونَ فِيهَا رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا نَعْمَلْ صَلِحًا غَيْرَ الَّذِي كُنَّا نَعْمَلُ أَوَلَمْ نُعَمِّرْكُمْ مَا يَتَذَكَّرُ فِيهِ مَنْ تَذَكَّرَ وَجَاءَكُمُ النَّذِيرُ فَذُوقُوا فَمَا لِلظَّلِمِينَ مِنْ نَصِيرٍ  
  3695 1632 1259 785 926 35:37     And they scream therein, our Lord, take us out, we will lead a righteous life, not what we used to do. Did We not give you a long life during which you received reminders for those who took heed and did you not receive warners? Therefore, taste it because the transgressors have no helpers.    
        إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِمُ غَيْبِ السَّمَوَتِ وَالأرْضِ إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِذَاتِ الصُّدُورِ  
  3696 1633 1260 786 1396(2087)  35:38     Surely, God is the knower of secrets in the skies and the land. Indeed He knows full well the innermost thoughts.   
        هُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَكُمْ خَلائِفَ فِي الأرْضِ فَمَنْ كَفَرَ فَعَلَيْهِ كُفْرُهُ وَلا يَزِيدُ الْكَفِرِينَ كُفْرُهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ إِلا مَقْتًا وَلا يَزِيدُ الْكَفِرِينَ كُفْرُهُمْ إِلا خَسَارًا  
  3697 1634 1261 787 35:39     He is the One who made you inheritors of the land. Therefore, whoever rejects faith does so to his detriment, and the lack of faith of the unfaithful will gain them nothing at their Lord except abhorrence, and the lack of faith of the unfaithful will gain them nothing but loss.   
        قُلْ أَرَأَيْتُمْ شُرَكَاءَكُمُ الَّذِينَ تَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ أَرُونِي مَاذَا خَلَقُوا مِنَ الأرْضِ أَمْ لَهُمْ شِرْكٌ فِي السَّمَوَتِ أَمْ آتَيْنَهُمْ كِتَبًا فَهُمْ عَلَى بَيِّنَةٍ مِنْهُ بَلْ إِنْ يَعِدُ الظَّلِمُونَ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضًا إِلا غُرُورًا   
  3698 1635 1262 788 1397(2088) 35:40     Say, do you see any of the partners you set up besides God creating anything on the land? Do they have any partnership in the skies? Have they received a book with a solid proof from Him? However, the transgressors promise each other only a mirage.     
        إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَوَتِ وَالأرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولا وَلَئِنْ زَالَتَا إِنْ أَمْسَكَهُمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا  
  3699 1636 1263 789 1398(2089) 927 35:41     Surely, God holds the skies and the land lest they would vanish. It would certainly vanish if anyone else besides Him held it. Indeed He is Clement, All Forgiver.     
        وَأَقْسَمُوا بِاللَّهِ جَهْدَ أَيْمَانِهِمْ لَئِنْ جَاءَهُمْ نَذِيرٌ لَيَكُونُنَّ أَهْدَى مِنْ إِحْدَى الأمَمِ فَلَمَّا جَاءَهُمْ نَذِيرٌ مَا زَادَهُمْ إِلا نُفُورًا  
  3700 1637 1264 790 1399(2090) 35:42     They swear by God, a solemn oath that had they received a warner, they would have most certainly been more guided than any other people. However, once they received a warner, it only increased their hatred.     
        اسْتِكْبَارًا فِي الأرْضِ وَمَكْرَ السَّيِّئِ وَلا يَحِيقُ الْمَكْرُ السَّيِّئُ إِلا بِأَهْلِهِ فَهَلْ يَنْظُرُونَ إِلا سُنَّةَ الأوَّلِينَ فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلا وَلَنْ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَحْوِيلا

Do they then expect anything but the tradition of the previous generations? You will never find any change in God's system; you will never find any mutation in God's system.   
        أَوَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الأرْضِ فَيَنْظُرُوا كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَكَانُوا أَشَدَّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيُعْجِزَهُ مِنْ شَيْءٍ فِي السَّمَوَتِ وَلا فِي الأرْضِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ عَلِيمًا قَدِيرًا
