[035:012] And the two seas (kinds of water) are not alike, this is palatable, sweet and pleasant to drink, and that is salt and bitter. And from them both you eat fresh tender meat (fish), and derive the ornaments that you wear. And you see the ships cleaving (the sea water as they sail through it), that you may seek of His bounty, and that you may give thanks.


[035:013] He merges the night into the day (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the night is added to the hours of the day), and He merges the day into the night (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the day is added to the hours of the night). And He has subjected the sun and the moon, each runs its course for a term appointed. Such is All‚h, your Lord; His is the kingdom. And those, whom you invoke or call upon instead of Him, own not even a QitmÓr (the thin membrane over the date stone).


[035:014] If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call; and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) like Him Who is Well-Aquainted (with everything).


[035:015] O mankind! it is you who stand in need of All‚h. But All‚h is the Rich (Free of all needs), the Worthy of all praise.


[035:016] If He willed, He could destroy you and bring about a new creation.


[035:017] And that is not hard for All‚h.


[035:018] And no bearer of burdens shall bear another's burden; and if one heavily laden calls another to (bear) his load, nothing of it will be lifted even though he be near of kin. You (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) can warn only those who fear their Lord unseen and perform As-Sal‚t (the prayers). And he who purifies himself (from all kinds of sins), then he purifies only for the benefit of his own self. And to All‚h is the (final) Return (of all).
