Section 3

18. Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo ittaqoo Allaha waltanthur nafsun ma qaddamat lighadin waittaqoo Allaha inna Allaha khabeerun bima taAAmaloona

18. O ye who believe!
Fear God,
And let every soul look
To what (provision) he has
Sent forth for the morrow.
Yea, fear God:
For God is well-acquainted
With (all) that ye do.

19. Wala takoonoo kaallatheena nasoo Allaha faansahum anfusahum ola-ika humu alfasiqoona

19. And be ye not like
Those who forgot God;
And He made them forget
Their own souls! Such
Are the rebellious transgressors!

20. La yastawee as-habu alnnari waas-habu aljannati as-habu aljannati humu alfa-izoona

20. Not equal are
The Companions of the Fire
And the Companions
Of the Garden:
It is the Companions
Of the Garden,
That will achieve Felicity.

21. Law anzalna hatha alqur-ana AAala jabalin laraaytahu khashiAAan mutasaddiAAan min khashyati Allahi watilka al-amthalu nadribuha lilnnasi laAAallahum yatafakkaroona

21. Had We sent down
This Qur-ān on a mountain,
Verily, thou wouldst have seen
It humble itself and cleave
Asunder for fear of God.
Such are the similitudes
Which We propound to men,
That they may reflect.

22. Huwa Allahu allathee la ilaha illa huwa AAalimu alghaybi waalshshahadati huwa alrrahmanu alrraheemu

22. God is He, than Whom
There is no other god;—
Who knows (all things)
Both secret and open;
He, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

23. Huwa Allahu allathee la ilaha illa huwa almaliku alquddoosu alssalamu almu/minu almuhayminu alAAazeezu aljabbaru almutakabbiru subhana Allahi AAamma yushrikoona

23. God is He, than Whom
There is no other god;—
The Sovereign, the Holy One,
The Source of Peace
(and Perfection),
The Guardian of Faith,
The Preserver of Safety,
The Exalted in Might,
The Irresistible, the Supreme:
Glory to God!
(High is He)
Above the partners
They attribute to Him.

24. Huwa Allahu alkhaliqu albari-o almusawwiru lahu al-asmao alhusna yusabbihu lahu ma fee alssamawati waal-ardi wahuwa alAAazeezu alhakeemu

24. He is God, the Creator,
The Evolver,
The Bestower of Forms
(Or Colours).
To Him belongs
The Most Beautiful Names:
Whatever is in
The heavens and on earth,
Doth declare
His Praises and Glory:
And He is the Exalted
In Might, the Wise.
