In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
The sending down of the Book is from God
the All-mighty, the All-wise.
We have sent down to thee the Book with the truth;
so worship God, making thy religion
Belongs not sincere religion to God?
And those who take protectors, apart from Him --
'We only serve them that they may bring
us nigh in nearness to God' -- surely God
shall judge between them touching that whereon
they are at variance.
|Surely God guides not him who is a liar,||5|
Had God desired to take to Him a son,
He would have chosen whatever He willed of that
He has created. Glory be to Him! He is God,
the One, the Omnipotent.
He created the heavens and the earth in truth,
wrapping night about the day, and
wrapping the day about the night;
and He has subjected the sun and the moon, each of them
to a stated term. [running
Is not. He the All-mighty, the All-forgiving?
He created you of a single soul, then
from it He appointed its mate;
and He sent down to you of the cattle eight couples.
He creates you in your mothers' wombs
creation after creation
in threefold shadows.
That then is God, your Lord;
