6.1 . Praise be to Allah , Who hath created the heavens and the earth , and hath appointed darkness and light . Yet those who disbelieve ascribe rivals unto their Lord .
6.2 . He it is Who hath created you from clay , and hath decreed a term for you . A term is fixed with Him . Yet still ye doubt!
6.3 . He is Allah in the heavens and in the earth . He knoweth both your secret and your utterance , and He knoweth what ye earn .
6.4 . Never came there unto them a revelation of the revelations of Allah but they did turn away from it .
6.5 . And they denied the truth when it came unto them . But there will come unto them the tidings of that which they used to deride .
6.6 . See they not how many a generation We destroyed before them , whom We had established in the earth more firmly than We have established you , and We shed on them abundant showers from the sky , and made the rivers flow beneath them . Yet We destroyed them for their sins , and created after them another generation
6.7 . Had we sent down unto thee ( Muhammad ) ( actual ) writing upon parchment , so that they could feel it with their hands , those who disbelieve would have said : This is naught else than mere magic .
6.8 . They say : Why hath not an angel been sent down unto him? If We sent down an angel , then the matter would be judged ; no further time would be allowed them ( for reflection ) .
6.9 . Had We appointed an angel ( Our messenger ) , We assuredly had made him ( as ) a man ( that he might speak to men ) ; and ( thus ) obscured for them ( the truth ) they ( now ) obscure .
6.10 . Messengers ( of Allah ) have been derided before thee , but that whereat they scoffed surrounded such of them as did deride .
6.11 . Say ( unto the disbelievers ) : Travel in the land , and see the nature of the consequence for the rejecters!
6.12 . Say : Unto whom belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth? Say : Unto Allah . He hath prescribed for Himself mercy , that He may bring you all together to a Day whereof there is no doubt . Those who ruin their own souls will not believe .
6.13 . Unto Him belongeth whatsoever resteth in the night and the day . He is the Hearer , the Knower .
6.14 . Say : Shall I choose for a protecting friend other than Allah , the Originator of the heavens and the earth , who feedeth and is never fed? Say : I am ordered to be the first to surrender ( unto Him ) . And be not thou ( O Muhammad ) of the idolaters
6.15 . Say : I fear , if I rebel against my Lord , the retribution of an Awful Day .
6.16 . He from whom ( such retribution ) is averted on that day ( Allah ) hath in truth had mercy on him . That will be the signal triumph .
6.17 . If Allah touch thee with affliction , there is none that can relieve therefrom save Him , and if He touch thee with good fortune ( there is none that can impair it ) ; for He is Able to do all things .
6.18 . He is the Omnipotent over His slaves , and He is the Wise , the Knower .
6.19 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : What thing is of most weight in testimony? Say : Allah is witness between you and me . And this Qur ' an hath been inspired in me , that I may warn therewith you and whomsoever it may reach . Do ye in truth bear witness that there are gods beside Allah? Say : I bear no such witness . Say : He is only One God . Lo! I am innocent of that which ye associate ( with Him ) .
6.20 . Those unto whom We gave the Scripture recognize ( this Revelation ) as they recognize their sons . Those who ruin their own souls will not believe .
