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


[013:001] Alif-Lm-Mm-R.


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


These are the Verses of the Book (the Qur'n), and that which has been revealed to you (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) from your Lord is the truth, but most men believe not.


[013:002] Allh is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see. Then, He rose above (Istaw) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round), each running (its course) for a term appointed. He manages and regulates all affairs; He explains the Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that you may believe with certainty in the Meeting with your Lord.


[013:003] And it is He Who spread out the earth, and placed therein firm mountains and rivers and of every kind of fruit He made Zawjain Ithnan (two in pairs may mean two kinds or it may mean: of two varieties, e.g. black and white, sweet and sour, small and big). He brings the night as a cover over the day. Verily, in these things, there are Ayt (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, etc.) for a people who reflect.


[013:004] And in the earth are neighbouring tracts, and gardens of vines, and green crops (fields), and date palms, growing into two or three from a single stem root, or otherwise (one stem root for every palm), watered with the same water; yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat. Verily, in these things there are Ayt (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs) for the people who understand.


[013:005] And if you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) wonder (at these polytheists who deny your message of Islmic Monotheism and have taken besides Allh others for worship who can neither harm nor benefit), then wondrous is their saying: "When we are dust, shall we indeed then be (raised) in a new creation?" They are those who disbelieved in their Lord! They are those who will have iron chains tying their hands to their necks. They will be dwellers of the Fire to abide therein forever.
