YOUR INMOST THOUGHTS
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
This ‘is’ the word of a ‘gracious messenger’ — faithful to his trust, and We ‘have shown him’ the right Path, that you may not transgress it! Would that you understood this! Why do you deny the ‘greatness’ of Allah, when He has made you in ‘gradual stages?’ Think! Praise the name of your Lord, Who has created all things, and well-proportioned them. When He decrees a thing, He need only say: “Be!” ….. Worship Him, and ‘be loyal’ in His service!
Ever bursting with ‘new growth’ this is a ‘discerning utterance!’ Can you not understand, this is no ‘invented tale?’ It is set down on honored pages, purified and exalted — which We ‘kept in a safe receptacle’ for an appointed time. It is the indubitable Truth, and will you not take heed? He ‘makes plain’ His Revelations to men of understanding. Yet you ‘challenge’ its fulfillment!
We ‘are witnesses’ of all your thoughts, all your prayers, and of all your actions! Surely in this there are signs for prudent men! If you believe in Allah — dedicate yourself to the Faith in ‘all uprightness.’ Truly Allah is Witness of what We say. The ungrateful shall never prosper. Let no one turn you from Allah’s Revelations — running on and on. You ‘are’ being put to the proof!
Know that Allah’s Apostle’s duty is no more than to ‘make plain’ his message! Allah’s are the ‘treasures’ of the heavens and earth, and His are the ‘secrets’ of the heaven and earth. Mighty is Allah, Who has sent His Apostle with Guidance and the Faith of Truth. Have faith in Allah and His Apostle!
Allah is compassionate and merciful to you, so that men might conduct themselves in ‘fairness’ and He ‘will bestow on you’ a light to walk in never-ending! The ‘Hour of Doom’ is drawing near, will you not take warning? Its signs have already come. Is not this real? By the Lord, those who deride Our revelations when they have ‘scarcely heard them’ shall be put to shameful punishment!
Will you not take heed, and think? You have argued! Do you marvel at ‘the ways of Allah?’ We gave ‘the Scriptures’ to Moses, and his people disagreed about them. All things are subject to Allah’s will, let not Satan mislead you! Observe this Faith, and be ‘united’ in it. It is Allah Who has revealed the Book with Truth and Justice, and it is He Who in the beginning created you! Who can err more than the man who ‘openly defies Him?’
Surely Allah encompasses all things, and He lets His Spirit ‘descend’ at His behest on those of His Servants whom He chooses! Surely ‘he’ has brought you ‘the Truth!’ By the Lord, he knows all that is hidden leading to the Path of the Almighty. Follow what Allah has revealed — that would be best for you. Only ‘the unbelievers’ deny Our Revelations!
But for Allah’s ‘grace and mercy’ — this would not have been revealed to you! You carried with your tongues and uttered what your mouths did not know, thus Allah makes plain to you His Revelations in a ‘safe enclosure.’ Therefore ‘listen’ to what shall be revealed. Blessed is the end of ‘the devout!’
Your Lord knows best what is in your hearts — truly, Truth ‘has come’ and ‘falsehood’ has been overthrown! It was We who revealed the Qur’an, and We have ‘planted it’ with every ‘seasonable fruit’ and send it down in ‘appropriate measure.’ Those who take warning and mend their ways will have nothing to fear or regret, and truly, that would be best for you! We inscribed for ‘him’ on ‘the Tablets’ — all manner of ‘precepts and instructions’ concerning all things!
Observe these ‘steadfastly’ and believe in Our Signs! This Book is veritable proof from your Lord, and His secrets, He reveals to none ‘except’ to Apostles whom ‘He elects!’ Know that Allah’s Apostle is among you. Admit this! Truly none will take heed but men of understanding. Allah has ‘now revealed’ the Best of Scriptures, yet most men do not know it. You have been warned! Your unintentional mistakes shall be forgiven, and Allah knows what is in your hearts!
Do not ‘run away!’ Here are ‘the Scriptures of Today’ and those of long ago — each, moves ‘swiftly’ in an orbit of its own! All this We have done so that you may be rightly guided by Allah. Allah created you, and He admonishes you so that you may take heed. Allah will not guide those who disbelieve in His Revelations! Eat of the good things which Allah has bestowed on you, and give thanks for His favors so that you may triumph!
Allah is with those who are ‘steadfast’ and He is Mighty and Wise! It is He Who sent forth His Apostle with ‘Guidance and the True Faith’ to make it triumphant over all religions! Whenever a chapter is revealed, do as you are bidden, Allah is not unaware of what you do. Take heed, they ‘are alive!’ Believers know that Allah knows, therefore take heed and let the Trustee discharge his trust. Whether it be little or much — you won’t be wronged the husk of a date stone!
Allah keeps count of all things! We exhort you to fear Allah, and bear true witness before Allah, even though it be against yourselves! Do not be led by passion, lest you swerve from the Truth. Allah has now sent down a warning so that you may know — He knows your ‘inmost thoughts!’ The men who say with their tongues: “We believe!” ….. but have ‘no faith’ in their hearts; their works will come to nothing and they shall be ruined. He does not love the treacherous and the thankless!
Allah controls the destiny of all things, but only the wise take heed! Truly, the only guidance is Guidance of Allah. Allah designed this to be but good news for you. They are alive, fear them! Do not think that those who rejoice in their misdeeds, and wish to be praised for what they have not done, shall be forgiven their sins. Hell shall be their home, and evil the burdens they shall bear!
See how We make plain Our Revelations? Come this way. It is an admonition to all mankind, and it is surely Allah, Who has revealed them! He created all things, and has knowledge of all things. Eat of these fruits when they ripen, that you may grow in Wisdom. In the end, you shall all return to Allah, the Wise One, and the All-Knowing!
