With the Name of The One True *G-D, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

Closer and closer to Mankind comes their (Day of) Reckoning (for their sins): yet they pay no attention and they turn away.

Never comes (anything) to them of a renewed Message from their Lord-Creator, but they listen to it as it was something to laugh at,- their hearts toying as with trifles.

The wrong-doers conceal their private conversations, (saying), “Is this (one) more than a man like yourselves? Will you go to witchcraft with your eyes open?”

Say (to them): “My Lord-Creator knows (every) word (spoken) in the Heavens and on Earth: HE is the ONE that hears and knows (everything).”

“No,” they say, “(these are) a jumble of dreams!” –

“No, He forged it (from earlier scriptures)!”

“No, He is (but) a poet! Let him then bring us a Message like the ones that were sent to the (Prophets) of old!”

(As to those) before them, not one of the populations which **WE destroyed believed: will these believe?

Before you, also, the Apostles WE sent were but men, to whom WE granted (Divine) Inspiration: If you realise this not, ask of those who possess the Message.

Nor did WE give them bodies that ate no food, nor were they exempt from death.

In the end WE fulfilled to them OUR Promise, and WE saved them and those whom WE pleased, but WE destroyed those who transgressed beyond bounds.

WE have revealed for you (O Mankind!) a Revelation in which is a Message for you: will you not then understand?

How many were the populations WE utterly destroyed because of their gross immoralities, setting up in their places other peoples?

Yet, when they felt OUR Destructive Punishment (coming), behold, they (tried to) run from it.

Don’t run, but return to the good things of this life which were given to you, and (return) to your homes, in order that you may be called to a painful account (for your sins).

They cried: “Ah! woe to us! We were indeed wrong-doers!”

And that cry of theirs did not stop, until WE made them as a field that is mowed down; as ashes silent and quenched.

Not for (idle) sport did WE create the Heavens and the Earth and all that is between!

If it had been OUR wish to take (just) a hobby, WE should surely have taken it from the things nearest to US, if WE would do (such a thing)!

No, WE hurl the Truth against falsehood, and it knocks out its brains, and behold, falsehood does perish!

Ah! woe be to you for the (false) things you ascribe (to G-D).

To HIM belong all (creatures) in the Heavens and on Earth: Even those who are in HIS (very) Presence are not too proud to serve HIM, nor are they (ever) weary (of serving HIM):

They celebrate HIS praises night and day, nor do they ever stop or intermit.

Or have they taken (for worship) gods from the Earth who can raise (the dead)?

If there were, in the Heavens and the Earth, other gods besides The One True G-D, there would have been confusion in both!

But glory to G-D, the Lord-Creator of the Throne: (High is HE) above what they attribute to HIM!

HE cannot be questioned for HIS Acts, but they will be questioned (for theirs).

Or have they taken for worship gods besides HIM?

Say, “Bring your convincing proof: this is the Message of those with me and the Message of those before me.”

But most of them know not the Truth, and so turn away.

Not an Apostle did WE send before you without this Inspiration sent by US to him: that there is no other gods but I; therefore worship and serve ME.

And they say: “(G-D) Most Gracious has begotten children.”

Glory to HIM! they are (but) servants raised to honour.

They speak not before HE speaks, and they act (in all things) by HIS Command.

HE knows what is before them, and what is behind them, and they offer no intercession except for those who are acceptable, and they stand in awe and reverence of HIS (Glory).

If any of them should say, “I am a god besides HIM”, such a one WE should reward with Hell: thus do WE reward those who do wrong.

(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.

*** The Qur’an was revealed to Muhammed Ibn (the son of) Abdullah in the 7th century.

He received this revelation over a 23 years time period from the Angel Gabriel.

Muhammed was just like the majority of Arabs at that time; he could neither read nor write.

The Revelation was given to him by the Angel Gabriel and implanted in his memory.

Muhammed, then recited it to his fellow Arabs.

The Prophet is referred to in many verses in the Qur’an as being unlettered.

An unlettered Prophet sent to an unlettered people.

The majority of his followers, who heard the recitation of the Qur’anic verses, from Muhammed; in turn memorised what they had heard.

After Muhammed’s death his son-in-law Uthman; who was the third leader of the growing Muslim community, after Muhammed’s death; had these memorised versed of the Qur’an compiled into a book form.

He gathered a majority of those who had heard the recitation from the Prophet Muhammed and had memorised it, to testify to the authenticity of what had been compiled into the book.

They all verified that it was exactly the same as they had heard the Prophet recite it.;
