[057:004] He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days and then rose over (Istaw‚) the Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). He knows what goes into the earth and what comes forth from it, and what descends from the heaven and what ascends thereto. And He is with you (by His Knowledge) wheresoever you may be. And All‚h is All-Seer of what you do.

 

[057:005] His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And to All‚h return all the matters (for decision).

 

[057:006] He merges night into day (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the night is added into the hours of the day), and merges day into night (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the day is added into the hours of the night), and He has full knowledge of whatsoever is in the breasts.

 

[057:007] Believe in All‚h and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and spend of that whereof He has made you trustees. And such of you as believe and spend (in All‚h's way), theirs will be a great reward.

 

[057:008] And what is the matter with you that you believe not in All‚h! While the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) invites you to believe in your Lord (All‚h); and He (All‚h) has indeed taken your covenant, if you are real believers.

 

[057:009] It is He Who sends down manifest Ay‚t (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) to His slave (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) that He may bring you out from darkness into light. And verily, All‚h is to you full of kindness, Most Merciful.

 

[057:010] And what is the matter with you that you spend not in the Cause of All‚h? And to All‚h belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. Not equal among you are those who spent and fought before the conquering (of Makkah, with those among you who did so later). Such are higher in degree than those who spent and fought afterwards. But to all All‚h has promised the best (reward). And All‚h is Well-Acquainted with what you do.

 

[057:011] Who is he that will lend All‚h a goodly loan, then (All‚h) will increase it manifold to his credit (in repaying), and he will have (besides) a good reward (i.e. Paradise)?
