55 THE ALL-MERCIFUL (1 – 25)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

The All-merciful has taught the Koran. He created man and He has taught him the Explanation.

The sun and the moon to a reckoning, 5and the stars and the trees bow themselves; and heaven—He raised it up, and set the Balance. (Transgress not in the Balance, and weigh with justice, and skimp not in the Balance.) And earth—He set it down for all beings, 10therein fruits, and palm-trees with sheaths, and grain in the blade, and fragrant herbs. 15O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?

He created man of a clay like the potter's, and He created the jinn of a smokeless fire. O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?

Lord of the Two Easts, Lord of the Two Wests, O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?

He let forth the two seas that meet together, 20between them a barrier they do not overpass. O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny? From them come forth the pearl and the coral. O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny? His too are the ships that run, raised up in the sea like landmarks. 25O which of your Lord's bounties will you and you deny?
