Holy Qur'an

With the Name of The One True *G-D, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
Alif Laam Raa.

A Revelation which **WE have revealed unto you, in order that you might lead mankind out of the depths of darkness into light – by the permission of their Guardian-Lord – to the Way of (G-D) the Exalted in Power, worthy of all praise!-

Of The One True G-D, to Whom do belong all things in the Heavens and on Earth! But alas for the Ungodly for a terrible penalty (their Unbelief will bring them)!-

Those who love the life of this world more than the Hereafter, who hinder (mankind) from the Path of The One G-D and seek therein something crooked: they are astray by a long distance.

WE sent not an Apostle except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them.
Now G-D leaves straying those whom HE pleases and guides whom HE pleases: and HE is Exalted in Power, full of Wisdom.
WE sent Moses with **OUR Signs (and the command). “Bring out your people from the depths of darkness into light, and teach them to remember the Days of G-D.”

Verily in this there are Messages for such as are firmly patient and constant,- grateful and appreciative.

Remember! Moses said to his people: “Call to mind the favour of G-D to you when HE delivered you from the people of Pharaoh: they set you hard tasks and punishments, slaughtered your sons, and let your women-folk live: therein was a tremendous trial from your Lord-Creator.”

And remember! your Guardian-Lord caused to be declared (publicly): “If you are grateful, I will add more (blessings) unto you; But if you show ingratitude, truly MY punishment is terrible indeed.”

And Moses said: “If you show ingratitude, you and all on Earth together, yet is G-D free of all wants, worthy of all praise.

Has not the story reached you, (O people!), of those who (went) before you? – of the people of Noah, and ‘Ad, and Thamud? – And of those who (came) after them?
None knows them but The One G-D. To them came Apostles with Clear (Messages); but they put their hands up to their mouths, and shouted: “We do deny (the mission) on which you have been sent, and we are really in suspicious doubt as to that to which you invite us.”
Their Apostles said: “Is there a doubt about The One G-D, The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth?
It is HE WHO invites you, in order that HE may forgive you your sins and give you a postponement (from Hell) for a term appointed!
“They said: “Ah! you are no more than human, like ourselves!  You wish to turn us away from the (gods) our forefathers taught us to worship: then bring us some clear authority.”
Their Apostles said to them: “True, we are humans like yourselves, but The True G-D does grant HIS Grace to such of HIS servants as HE pleases.
It is not for us to bring you an authority except as G-D permits. And on The One G-D let all men (and women) of faith put their trust.
“No reason have we why we should not put our trust on G-D.

Indeed HE has guided us to the Ways we (follow). We shall certainly bear with patience all the hurt you may cause us. For those who put their trust should put their trust on G-D.”

And the Ungodly said to their Apostles: “Be sure we shall drive you out of our land, or you shall return to our religion.”

But their Guardian-Lord inspired (this Message) to them: “Verily WE shall cause the wrong-doers to perish!

“And verily WE shall cause you to abide in the land, and succeed them. This for such as fear the Time when they shall stand before MY tribunal,- such as fear the punishment denounced.”

But they sought victory and decision (there and then), and frustration was the lot of every powerful, obstinate, (arrogant) transgressor.

In front of such a one is Hell, and he is given, for drink, boiling fetid water.

In gulps will he sip it, but never will he be near swallowing it down his throat: death will come to him from every quarter, yet will he not die: and in front of him will be a chastisement unrelenting.

The Parable of those who reject their Lord-Creator is that their (life’s) works are as ashes, on which the wind blows furiously on a tempestuous day:

No power have they over anything that they have earned
(during their lifetime): that is the straying far, far (from the goal).
Haven’t you perceived that The One G-D created the Heavens and the Earth in Truth?
If HE so will, HE can remove (all) of mankind and put in (your place) a new creation?
Nor is that for G-D any great matter.
They will all be marshalled before The One G-D together: then will the weak say to those who were (powerful, rich and) arrogant, “For us, we but followed you; can you then help us against the wrath of G-D?”
They will reply, “If we had accepted the Guidance of G-D, we should have given it to you: to us it makes no difference (now) whether we rage, or bear (these punishments) with patience: for ourselves there is no way of escape.”
And Satan will say when the matter is decided: “It was The One G-D WHO gave you a promise of Truth: I too promised, but I failed in my promise to you.”
“I had no authority over you except to invite you (to evil and immoral things)  but you listened to me: then reproach not me, but reproach your own souls.”
“I cannot listen to your cries, nor can you listen to mine.  I reject your former act in associating me (and my lies) with G-D. For wrong-doers there must be a grievous penalty.”
But those who believe and work righteousness will be admitted to Gardens beneath which rivers flow,- to dwell therein for ever with the permission of their Guardian-Lord.
Their greeting therein will be: “Peace!”
(Verses from the Holy ***Qur’an)
*G-D instead of god which spelt backwards is dog. This is not a respectful spelling of a term to be used in reference to the Lord-Creator of the Heavens and Earth.
**WE, US, OUR are references in the Holy Qur’an to all of the forces of power (Angels) under the control of The Creator. They manage all creation. They are totally obedient to The All-Mighty G-D, and obeys HIS Commands without question.
*** In the 7th century the Prophet Muhammed of Arabia received the Revelation called the Holy Qur’an from the Angel Gabriel over a 23 years time period.

 He did not know how to read or write. He is referred to in the Qur’an as being “unlettered.”
