In the Name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


[003:001] Alif-Lm-Mm.


[These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'n, and none but Allh (Alone) knows their meanings.]


[003:002] Allh! L ilah illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), Al-Hayyuul-Qayyum (the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists).


[003:003] It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur'n) to you (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) with truth, confirming what came before it. And He sent down the Taurt (Torah) and the Injl (Gospel),


[003:004] Aforetime, as a guidance to mankind. And He sent down the Criterion [of judgement between right and wrong (this Qur'n)]. Truly, those who disbelieve in the Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allh, for them there is a severe torment; and Allh is All-Mighty, All-Able of Retribution.


[003:005] Truly, nothing is hidden from Allh, in the earth or in the heaven.


[003:006] He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He wills. L ilha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.


[003:007] It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) the Book (this Qur'n). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkm (commandments), Al-Fara'id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers)]; and others not entirely clear. So, as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings except Allh. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord." And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabar)


[003:008] (They say): "Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower."


[003:009] "Our Lord! Verily, it is You Who will gather mankind together on the Day about which there is no doubt. Verily, Allh never breaks His Promise."
