SURA LXXIV (74) - The Enwrapped (Mecca - 55) (II - 21)
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the MercifulO Thou, enwrapped in thy mantle!
And bestow not favours that thou mayest receive again with increase;And for thy Lord wait thou patiently.
Leave me alone to deal with him whom I have created,And on whom I have bestowed vast riches,
And for whom I have smoothed all things smoothly down; -Yet desireth he that I shall add more!
And said, "This is merely magic that will be wrought;It is merely the word of a mortal."
None but angels have we made guardians of the fire: nor have we made
this to be their number but to perplex the unbelievers, and that they who
possess the Scriptures may be certain of the truth of the Koran, and that theywho believe may increase their faith;
And that they to whom the Scriptures have been given, and thebelievers,may not doubt;
And that the infirm of heart and the unbelievers may say, What meanethGod by this parable?
Thus God misleadeth whom He will, and whom He will doth He guide aright:
and none knoweth the armies of thy Lord but Himself: and this is no other thana warning to mankind.
74:40 To him among you who desireth to press forward, or to remain behind.
For its own works lieth every soul in pledge. But they of God's righthand
And we plunged into vain disputes with vain disputers,And we rejected as a lie, the day of reckoning,
And intercession of the interceders shall not avail them.
74:50 Then what hath come to them that they turn aside from the WarningAs if they affrighted asses fleeing from a lion?
And every one of them would fain have open pages given to him out ofHeaven.
It shall not be. For this Koran is warning enough. And whoso will, itwarneth him.
But not unless God please, shall they be warned. Meet is He to befeared. Meet is forgiveness in Him.
