. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings].
Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa
(none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists.
It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur'an) to you (Muhammad
) with truth, confirming what came before it. And he sent down the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).
Aforetime, as a guidance to mankind, And He sent down the criterion [of judgement between right and wrong (this Qur'an)]. Truly, those who disbelieve in the Ayat
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, for them there is a severe torment; and Allah is All-Mighty, All-Able of Retribution.
Truly, nothing is hidden from Allah, in the earth or in the heavens.
He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He pleases. La ilaha illa Huwa
(none has the right to be worshipped but He), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad
) the Book (this Qur'an). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkam
(commandments, etc.), Al-Fara'id
(obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud
(legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah
(polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord." And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabari
(They say): "Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower."
Our Lord! Verily, it is You Who will gather mankind together on the Day about which there is no doubt. Verily, Allah never breaks His Promise".
