The Beneficent

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

[55.1] The Beneficent God, [55.2] Taught the Quran. [55.3] He created man, [55.4] Taught him the mode of expression. [55.5] The sun and the moon follow a reckoning. [55.6] And the herbs and the trees do adore (Him). [55.7] And the heaven, He raised it high, and He made the balance [55.8] That you may not be inordinate in respect of the measure. [55.9] And keep up the balance with equity and do not make the measure deficient. [55.10] And the earth, He has set it for living creatures; [55.11] Therein is fruit and palms having sheathed clusters, [55.12] And the grain with (its) husk and fragrance. [55.13] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.14] He created man from dry clay like earthen vessels, [55.15] And He created the jinn of a flame of fire. [55.16] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.17] Lord of the East and Lord of the West. [55.18] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.19] .He has made the two seas to flow freely (so that) they meet together: [55.20] Between them is a barrier which they cannot pass. [55.21] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.22] There come forth from them pearls, both large and small. [55.23] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.24] And His are the ships reared aloft in the sea like mountains. [55.25] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.26] Everyone on it must pass away. [55.27] And there will endure for ever the person of your Lord, the Lord of glory and honor. [55.28] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.29] All those who are in the heavens and the earth ask of Him; every moment He is in a state (of glory). [55.30] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.31] Soon will We apply Ourselves to you, O you two armies. [55.32] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.33] O assembly of the jinn and the men! If you are able to pass through the regions of the heavens and the earth, then pass through; you cannot pass through but with authority. [55.34] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.35] The flames of fire and smoke will be sent on you two, then you will not be able to defend yourselves. [55.36] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.37] And when the heaven is rent asunder, and then becomes red like red hide. [55.38] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.39] So on that day neither man nor jinni shall be asked about his sin. [55.40] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.41] The guilty shall be recognized by their marks, so they shall be seized by the forelocks and the feet. [55.42] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.43] This is the hell which the guilty called a lie. [55.44] Round about shall they go between it and hot, boiling water. [55.45] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.46] And for him who fears to stand before his Lord are two gardens. [55.47] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.48] Having in them various kinds. [55.49] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.50] In both of them are.two fountains flowing. [55.51] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.52] In both of them are two pairs of every fruit. [55.53] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.54] Reclining on beds, the inner coverings of which are of silk brocade; and the fruits of the two gardens shall be within reach. [55.55] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.56] In them shall be those who restrained their eyes; before them neither man nor jinni shall have touched them. [55.57] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.58] As though they were rubies and pearls. [55.59] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.60] Is the reward of goodness aught but goodness? [55.61] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.62] And besides these two are two (other) gardens: [55.63] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.64] Both inclining to blackness. [55.65] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.66] In both of them are two springs gushing forth.

[55.70] In them are goodly things, beautiful ones. [55.71] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.72] Pure ones confined to the pavilions. [55.73] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.74] Man has not touched them before them nor jinni. [55.75] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.76] Reclining on green cushions and beautiful carpets. [55.77] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [55.78] Blessed be the name of your Lord, the Lord of Glory and Honor!
