Surah 25 - Al Furqan THE CRITERION 025.051-025.077
025.051 Had it been Our Will, We could have sent a warner to every centre of population.
025.052 Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur'an).
025.053 It is He Who has let free the two bodies of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, and the other salt and bitter; yet has He made a barrier between them, a partition that is forbidden to be passed.
025.054 It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord has power (over all things).
025.055 Yet do they worship, besides God, things that can neither profit them nor harm them: and the Misbeliever is a helper (of Evil), against his own Lord!
025.056 But thee We only sent to give glad tidings and admonition.
025.057 Say: "No reward do I ask of you for it but this: that each one who will may take a (straight) Path to his Lord."
025.058 And put thy trust in Him Who lives and dies not; and celebrate his praise; and enough is He to be acquainted with the faults of His servants;-
025.059 He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between, in six days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): God Most Gracious: ask thou, then, about Him of any acquainted (with such things).
025.060 When it is said to them, "Adore ye (God) Most Gracious!", they say, "And what is (God) Most Gracious? Shall we adore that which thou commandest us?" And it increases their flight (from the Truth).
025.061 Blessed is He Who made constellations in the skies, and placed therein a Lamp and a Moon giving light;
025.062 And it is He Who made the Night and the Day to follow each other: for such as have the will to celebrate His praises or to show their gratitude.
025.063 And the servants of (God) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace!";
025.064 Those who spend the night in adoration of their Lord prostrate and standing;
025.065 Those who say, "Our Lord! avert from us the Wrath of Hell, for its Wrath is indeed an affliction grievous,-
025.066 "Evil indeed is it as an abode, and as a place to rest in";
025.067 Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not niggardly, but hold a just (balance) between those (extremes);
025.068 Those who invoke not, with God, any other god, nor slay such life as God has made sacred except for just cause, nor commit fornication; - and any that does this (not only) meets punishment.
025.069 (But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy,-
025.070 Unless he repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for God will change the evil of such persons into good, and God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful,
025.071 And whoever repents and does good has truly turned to God with an (acceptable) conversion;-
025.072 Those who witness no falsehood, and, if they pass by futility, they pass by it with honourable (avoidance);
025.073 Those who, when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord, droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind;
025.074 And those who pray, "Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous."
025.075 Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven, because of their patient constancy: therein shall they be met with salutations and peace,
025.076 Dwelling therein;- how beautiful an abode and place of rest!
025.077 Say (to the Rejecters): "My Lord is not uneasy because of you if ye call not on Him: But ye have indeed rejected (Him), and soon will come the inevitable (punishment)!"
