25:61 Hallowed is He who has set up in the skies great constellations and has placed among them a [radiant] lamp and a light-giving moon.
25:62 And He it is who causes the night and the day to succeed one another, [revealing Himself in His works] unto him who has the will to take thought – that is, has the will to be grateful.
25:63) For, [true] servants of the Most Gracious are [only] they who walk gently on the earth, and who, whenever the foolish address them, reply with [words of] peace.
25:64 And who remember their Sustainer far into the night, prostrating themselves and standing.
25:65 And who pray “O our Sustainer, avert from us the suffering of hell – for, verily, the suffering caused by it is bound to be a torment dire.
25:66 Verily, how evil an abode and a station!”
25:67 And who, whenever they spend on others, are neither wasteful nor niggardly but [remember that] there is always a just mean between those [two extremes].
25:68 And who never invoke any [imaginary] deity side by side with God, and do not take any human being’s life – [the life] which God has willed to be sacred – otherwise than in [the pursuit of] justice, and do not commit adultery. And [know that] he who commits aught thereof shall [not only] meet with a full requital.
25:69 [But] shall have his suffering doubled on Resurrection Day: for on that [Day], he shall abide in ignominy.
25:70 Excepted, however, shall be they who repent and attain to faith and do righteous deeds, for it is they whose [erstwhile] bad deeds God will transform into good ones – seeing that God is indeed much-forgiving, a dispenser of grace.
25:71 And seeing that he who repents and [thenceforth] does what is right has truly turned unto God by [this very act of] repentance.
25:72 And [know that true servants of God are only] those who never bear witness to what is false, and [who], whenever they pass by [people engaged in] frivolity, pass on with dignity.
25:73 And who, whenever they are reminded of their Sustainer’s messages, do not throw themselves upon them [as if] deaf and blind.
25:74 And who pray: “O our Sustainer! Grant that our spouses and our offspring be a joy to our eyes, and cause us to be foremost among those who are conscious of Thee!”
25:75 [Such as] these will be rewarded for all their patient endurance [in life] with a high station [in paradise], and will be met therein with a greeting of welcome and peace.
25:76 Therein to abide, [and] how, goodly an abode and [how high] a station!
25:77 Say [unto those who believe] “No weight or value would my Sustainer attach to you were it not for your faith [in Him]!” [And say unto those who deny the truth:] “You have indeed given the lie [to God’s message], and in time this [sin] will cleave unto you!”
