And He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods-- and His dominion (extends) on the water-- that He might manifest to you, which of you is best in action, and if you say, surely you shall be raised up after death, those who disbelieve would certainly say This is nothing but clear magic.
Allah has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, to abide in them that is the great achievement. And the defaulters from among the dwellers of the desert came that permission may be given to them and they sat (at home) who lied to Allah and His Apostle a painful chastisement shall afflict those of them who disbelieved.
He it is Who sent down tranquillity into the hearts of the believers that they might have more of faith added to their faith-- and Allah's are the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Knowing, Wise-- That He may cause the believing men and the believing women to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide therein and remove from them their evil and that is a grand achievement with Allah And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them, and evil is the resort.
O you who believe shall I lead you to a merchandise which may deliver you from a painful chastisement You shall believe in Allah and H,is Apostle, and struggle hard in Allah's way with your property and your lives that is better for you, did you but know He will forgive you your faults and cause you to enter into gardens, beneath which rivers flow, and goodly dwellings in gardens of perpetuity that is the mighty achievement And yet another (blessing) that you love help from Allah and a victory near at hand and give good news to the believers.
O you who believe when you deal with each other in contracting a debt for a fixed time, then write it down and let a scribe write it down between you with fairness and the scribe should not refuse to write as Allah has taught him, so he should write and let him who owes the debt dictate, and he should be careful of (his duty to) Allah, his Lord, and not diminish anything from it but if he who owes the debt is unsound in understanding, or weak, or (if) he is not able to dictate himself, let his guardian dictate with fairness and call in to witness from among your men two witnesses but if there are not two men, then one man and two women from among those whom you choose to be witnesses, so that if one of the two errs, the second of the two may remind the other and the witnesses should not refuse when they are summoned and be not averse to writing it (whether it is) small or large, with the time of its falling due this is more equitable in the sight of Allah and assures greater accuracy in testimony, and the nearest (way) that you may not entertain doubts (afterwards), except when it is ready merchandise which you give and take among yourselves from hand to hand, then there is no blame on you in not writing it down and have witnesses when you barter with one another, and let no harm be done to the scribe or to the witness and if you do (it) then surely it will be a transgression in you, and be careful of (your duty) to Allah, Allah teaches you, and Allah knows all things.
And do not approach the property of the orphan except in the best manner until he attains his maturity, and give full measure and weight with justice-- We do not impose on any soul a duty except to the extent of its ability and when you speak, then be just though it be (against) a relative, and fulfill Allah's covenant this He has enjoined you with that you may be mindful And (know) that this is My path, the right one therefore follow it, and follow not (other) ways, for they will lead you away from His way this He has enjoined you with that you may guard (against evil).
