With The Name of The One True *G-D, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
The ungodly say: “We shall neither believe in this scripture (the Qur’an) nor in (any) that (came) before it (the Torah and Gospel).”
Could you but see when the wrong-doers will be made to stand before their Lord-Creator (on Judgment Day), throwing back the word (of blame) on one another!
Those who had been weak minded will say to the arrogant ones: “Had it not been for you, we should certainly have been believers (in G-D’s Guidance)!”
The arrogant ones will say to those who had been weak (minded): “Was it we who kept you back from following the Right Path, after it had become obvious to you?”
“No, it was but you (yourselves) who were guilty (of rejecting The One True G-D’s Guidance) after it reached you. It was you who transgressed!”
But those who had been weak (minded) will say unto those who had gloried in their arrogance (and riches):
“No, (what kept us away was your) devising of false arguments, night and day, (against G-D’s messages) when you persuaded us to blaspheme against G-D and to claim that there are others that were equal to HIM (like the trinity)!”
And when they see the suffering (that awaits them), they will (all) be unable to express (the full depth of) their remorse: for **WE shall have put shackles around the necks of those who had been bent on denying the Truth: (and) will this be anything but a (just) requital for what they were doing?
For (thus it is:) whenever WE sent a Warner to any nation, those of its people who had lost themselves entirely in the pursuit of (immoral) pleasures would declare, “Behold, we deny that there is any truth in (what you claim to be) your Message!” –
And they would add, “We have more in riches and in children, and we are not going to be made to suffer.”
Say (to them): “Verily my Lord-Creator enlarges and restricts the Blessings (wealth, knowledge etc.) to whom HE pleases, but most men (and women) do not understand (G-D’s Way).”
It is not your riches nor your children, that will bring you nearer to **US in degree: but only those who believe and work righteousness – these are the ones for whom there is a multiplied Reward for their deeds, while secure they (reside) in the mansions (in Paradise)!
Those who strive against **OUR Messages by convincing others not to believe in them, will be given over into Punishment.
Say (to them): “Verily my Lord-Creator enlarges and restricts the Blessings (wealth, knowledge etc.) to such of HIS servants as HE pleases: and nothing do you spend in the least (to help in the cause of righteousness) but HE replaces it: for HE is the Best of those who grant Blessings (wealth, knowledge etc.).
One Day HE will gather them all together, and say to the Angels, “Was it You that these men (and women) used to worship?”
They will reply, “Glory to YOU! Our (allegiance) is with YOU (Alone)- as Master-Creator – not with them.”
No, but they worshipped and imitated the Jinns (childish, silly minded, foolish personalities): most of them believed in them.
So on that Day no power shall they have over each other, for profit or harm: and WE shall say to those who gave in to doing evil deeds,
“Taste you the Penalty of the (Hell) Fire,- that which you wanted to deny!”
When OUR Clear Messages are rehearsed to them, they say, “This is only a man who wishes to turn you away from the (religion) which your fathers practised.”
And they say, “This (Qur’an) is only a falsehood invented (by a man)!” And the Ungodly say of the Truth when it comes to them, “This is nothing but spellbinding fantasy!”
But WE had not given (your people) Revelations which they could study, nor sent Apostles to them before (WE sent) you as a Warner.
And their predecessors (Human ancestors) rejected (the Truth); these have not received a tenth of what WE had granted to those:
Yet when they rejected MY Apostles, how (terrible) was MY rejection (of them)!
(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.”
