Surah 64 - Al Taghabun THE MUTUAL LOSS AND GAIN
064.001 Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and
of God: to Him belongs dominion, and to Him belongs praise: and He has power over
064.002 It is He Who has created you; and of you are some that are Unbelievers, and
some that are Believers: and God sees well all that ye do.
064.003 He has created the heavens and the earth in just proportions, and has
you shape, and made your shapes beautiful: and to Him is the final Goal.
064.004 He knows what is in the heavens and on earth; and He knows what ye
conceal and what ye reveal: yea, God knows well the (secrets) of (all) hearts.
064.005 Has not the story reached you, of those who rejected Faith aforetime?
they tasted the evil result of their conduct; and they had a grievous Penalty.
064.006 That was because there came to them messengers with Clear Signs, but they
said: "Shall (mere) human beings direct us?" So they rejected (the Message) and
turned away. But God can do without (them): and God is free of all needs, worthy of
064.007 The Unbelievers think that they will not be raised up (for Judgment).
"Yea, By my Lord, Ye shall surely be raised up: then shall ye be told (the truth) of all
that ye did. And that is easy for God."
064.008 Believe, therefore, in God and His Messenger, and in the Light which we
sent down. And God is well acquainted with all that ye do.
064.009 The Day that He assembles you (all) for a Day of Assembly,- that will
Day of mutual loss and gain (among you), and those who believe in God and work
righteousness,- He will remove from them their ill, and He will admit them to
Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein for ever: that will be the
064.010 But those who reject Faith and treat Our Signs as falsehoods, they will be
Companions of the Fire, to dwell therein for aye: and evil is that Goal.
064.011 No kind of calamity can occur, except by the leave of God: and if any
believes in God, (God) guides his heart (aright): for God knows all things.
064.012 So obey God, and obey His Messenger: but if ye turn back, the duty of Our
Messenger is but to proclaim (the Message) clearly and openly.
064.013 God! There is no god but He: and on God, therefore, let the Believers
064.014 O ye who believe! Truly, among your wives and your children are (some
that are) enemies to yourselves: so beware of them! But if ye forgive and overlook,
and cover up (their faults), verily God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
064.015 Your riches and your children may be but a trial: but in the Presence
is the highest, Reward.
064.016 So fear God as much as ye can; listen and obey and spend in charity for the
benefit of your own souls and those saved from the covetousness of their own souls,-
they are the ones that achieve prosperity.
064.017 If ye loan to God, a beautiful loan, He will double it to your (credit), and He
will grant you Forgiveness: for God is most Ready to appreciate (service),
064.018 Knower of what is open, Exalted in Might, Full of Wisdom.
