Surah (Chapter): Al-Ankabut Total Ayats (Verses): 69
29.1. Alif. LÄm. MÄ«m.
29.2. Do people reckon that they will be left (to themselves at ease) on their mere saying, "We believe," and will not be put to a test?
29.3. We certainly tested those who preceded them. (This is Our unchanging way) so that God will certainly mark out those who prove true (in their profession of faith), and He will certainly mark out those who prove false.
29.4. Or do those who do evil deeds (and persecute the believers) reckon that they can frustrate Us and escape Our punishment? How evil is the judgment they have reached!
29.5. Whoever looks forward to meeting with God, the term set by God (for His meeting) will certainly come. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.
29.6. And whoever strives hard (against his carnal, evil-commanding soul and Satan to be a good Muslim and to resist all persecutions in God's cause) strives for the good of his own soul only. Surely God is Self-Sufficient, in absolute independence of all the worlds.
29.7. Those who believe and (in striving hard to be good Muslims) do good, righteous deeds, We will most certainly blot out from them their evil deeds, and will most certainly reward them in accordance with the best of what they used to do.
29.8. (As the requirement for being good Muslims) We have enjoined on human to be kind and good to his parents; but if they endeavor to make you associate with Me anything as partner, about whose being so you impossibly have no knowledge, do not obey them. To Me is your return, so I will make you understand what you were doing (and call you to account for it).
29.9. Those who believe and do good, righteous deeds, We will most certainly include them among the righteous (who enter Paradise).
29.10. Among the people are such as say, "We believe in God," but when (such a person) is subjected to persecution (for his confession of faith) in God, he construes persecution at the hands of people as God's punishment (and rejects his faith); but if a victory comes from your Lord (to the believers), (such people) will most certainly say, "Surely we have always been with you. " Or (do they think that) God is not fully aware of what is in the bosoms of all creatures (that He created)?
