Surah Al-Furqan: 25:61-77

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!”


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
