40. The Forgiver (61 – 81)

61It is God who has given you the night in which to rest and the day in which to see. God is truly bountiful to people, but most people do not give thanks. 62Such is God your Lord, the Creator of all things: there is no god but Him. How can you be so deluded? 63This is how deluded those who deny God's messages are. 64It is God who has given you the earth for a dwelling place and the heavens for a canopy. He shaped you, formed you well, and provided you with good things. Such is God your Lord, so glory be to Him, the Lord of the Worlds. 65He is the Living One and there is no god but Him, so call on Him, and dedicate your religion entirely to Him. Praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds.

66Say [Prophet], ‘Since clear evidence has come to me from my Lord I am forbidden to serve those you call upon besides God: I am commanded to submit to the Lord of the Worlds.’ 67It is He who created you from dust, then from a drop of fluid, then from a tiny, clinging form, then He brought you forth as infants, then He allowed you to reach maturity, then He let you grow old—though some of you die sooner—and reach your appointed term so that you may reflect. 68It is He who gives life and death, and when He ordains a thing, He says only ‘Be’ and it is.

69[Prophet], do you see how deluded those who dispute God's messages are—70those who reject the Scripture and the messages We have sent through Our messengers? They will find out71when, with iron collars and chains around their necks, they are dragged 72into scalding water, and then burned in the Fire, 73and asked, ‘Where now are those you called upon 74besides God?’ They will say, ‘They have abandoned us: those we called upon before were really nothing at all.’ ‘This is how God lets disbelievers go astray, 75all because on earth you revelled in untruth and ran wild.76Enter the gates of Hell, there to remain—an evil home for the arrogant.’

77So be patient [Prophet], for God's promise is sure: whether We show you part of what We have promised thema The disbelievers. in this life or whether We take your soul back to Us first, it is to Us that they will be returned.78We have sent other messengers before you—some We have mentioned to you and some We have not—and no messenger could bring about a sign except with God's permission. When [the Day] God ordained comes, just judgement will be passed between them: there and then, those who followed falsehood will be lost.

79It is God who provides livestock for you, some for riding and some for your food; 80you have other benefits in them too. You can reach any destination you wish on them: they carry you, as ships carry you [on the sea]. 81He shows you His signs: which of God's signs do you still ignore?

Notes:
