They worship besides Allah others who can neither harm nor benefit them, and say, “These are our intercessors with Allah.” Ask ˹them, O  Prophet˺, “Are you informing Allah of something He does not know in the heavens or the earth? Glorified and Exalted is He above what they associate ˹with Him˺!” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Humanity was once nothing but a single community ˹of believers˺, but then they differed.1 Had it not been for a prior decree from your Lord,2 their differences would have been settled ˹at once˺. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They ask, “Why has no ˹other˺ sign been sent down to him from his Lord?” Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “˹The knowledge of˺ the unseen is with Allah alone. So wait! I too am waiting with you.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
When We give people a taste of mercy after being afflicted with a hardship, they swiftly devise plots against Our revelations! Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Allah is swifter in devising ˹punishment˺. Surely Our messenger-angels record whatever you devise.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

He is the One Who enables you to travel through land and sea. And it so happens that you are on ships, sailing with a favourable wind, to the passengers’ delight. Suddenly, the ships are overcome by a gale wind and those on board are overwhelmed by waves from every side, and they assume they are doomed. They cry out to Allah ˹alone˺ in sincere devotion, “If You save us from this, we will certainly be grateful.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
But as soon as He rescues them, they transgress in the land unjustly. O  humanity! Your transgression is only against your own souls. ˹There is only˺ brief enjoyment in this worldly life, then to Us is your return, and then We will inform you of what you used to do. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

The life of this world is just like rain We send down from the sky, producing a mixture of plants which humans and animals consume. Then just as the earth looks its best, perfectly beautified, and its people think they have full control over it, there comes to it Our command by night or by day, so We mow it down as if it never flourished yesterday! This is how We make the signs clear for people who reflect. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And Allah invites ˹all˺ to the Home of Peace and guides whoever He wills to the Straight Path. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Those who do good will have the finest reward1 and ˹even˺ more.2 Neither gloom nor disgrace will cover their faces. It is they who will be the residents of Paradise. They will be there forever. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﭿ
As for those who commit evil, the reward of an evil deed is its equivalent. Humiliation will cover them—with no one to protect them from Allah—as if their faces were covered with patches of the night’s deep darkness. It is they who will be the residents of the Fire. They will be there forever. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
