1: 2. All praise is due to ALLAH alone, Lord of all the worlds.
1: 3. The Gracious, the Merciful.
1: 4. Master of the Day of Judgment.
1: 5. THEE alone do we worship and THEE alone do we implore for help.
1: 6. Guide us in the straight path,
1: 7. The path of those on whom THOU hast bestowed THY favours, those
who have not incurred THY displeasure and those who have not gone astray.
2: 1. In the name of ALLAH, the Gracious, the Merciful.
2: 2. Alif, Lam, Mim.
2: 3. This is a perfect Book; there is no doubt in it; it is a guidance
for the righteous,
2: 4. Who believe in the unseen and observe prayer and spend out of what
WE have provided for them.
2: 5. And who believe in that which has been revealed to thee and that
which was revealed before thee and they have firm faith in the hereafter.
2: 6. It is they who follow the guidance from their LORD and it is they
who shall prosper.
2: 7. Those who have disbelieved - it being alike to them whether thou
warn them or warn them not - they will not believe.
2: 8. ALLAH has set a seal on their hearts and their ears, and over their
eyes is a covering; and for them is a grievous chastisement.
2: 9. And of the people there are some who say, `We believe in ALLAH,
and the Last Day;' while they are not believers at all.
2: 10. They would deceive ALLAH and those who believe, but they deceive
none but themselves; only they perceive it not.
2: 11. In their hearts was a disease, so ALLAH has increased their disease,
and for them is a grievous punishment because they lied.
2: 12. And when it is said to them, `Create not disorder in the earth,'

2: 14. And when it is said to them, `Believe as other people have believed,'
they say, `Shall we believe as the fools have believed ?' Remember ! it

2: 15. And when they meet those who believe, they say, `We believe;' but
when they are alone with their ring-leaders they say, `We were only mocking.'
2: 16. ALLAH will punish their mockery and will let them continue in their
transgression, wandering blindly.
2: 17. These are they who have bartered away guidance for error, but their
traffic has brought them no gain, nor are they rightly guided.
2: 18. Their case is like the case of a person who kindled a fire, and
when it lighted up all around him, ALLAH took away their light and left
them in thick darkness, they see not.
2: 19. They are deaf, dumb and blind; so they will not return.
2: 20. Or, it is like a heavy rain from the clouds, wherein is thick darkness
and thunder and lightning; they put their fingers into their ears because
