[020:114] Then High above all be Allâh, the True King. And be not in haste (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) with the Qur'ân before its revelation is completed to you, and say: "My Lord! Increase me in knowledge."


[020:115] And indeed We made a covenant with Adam before, but he forgot, and We found on his part no firm willpower.


[020:116] And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves to Adam." They prostrated themselves (all) except Iblîs (Satan); he refused.


[020:117] Then We said: "O Adam! Verily, this is an enemy to you and to your wife. So, let him not get you both out of Paradise, so that you will be distressed.


[020:118] Verily, you have (a promise from Us) that you will never be hungry therein nor naked.


[020:119] And you (will) suffer not from thirst therein nor from the sun's heat.


[020:120] Then Shaitân (Satan) whispered to him, saying: "O Adam! Shall I lead you to the Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that will never waste away?"


[020:121] Then they both ate of the tree, and so their private parts became manifest to them, and they began to cover themselves with the leaves of Paradise for their covering. Thus did Adam disobey his Lord, so he went astray.


[020:122] Then his Lord chose him, and turned to him with forgiveness, and gave him guidance.


[020:123] He (Allâh) said:"Get you down (from Paradise to the earth), both of you together, some of you are an enemy to some others. Then if there comes to you guidance from Me, then whoever follows My Guidance he shall neither go astray nor shall be distressed.


[020:124] "But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'ân nor acts on its teachings), verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection."


[020:125] He will say:"O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)."
