Surah (Chapter): As-Sajdah Total Ayats (Verses): 30
32.1. Alif. LÄm. MÄ«m.
32.2. (This is) the Book which, it is beyond all doubt, is being sent down in parts from the Lord of the worlds.
32.3. Or do they say: he (Muhammad) has fabricated it? No, rather, it is the truth from your Lord, that you may warn a people to whom no warner has come before you (during a long interlude during which no Messengers appeared), so that they may be guided (to find and follow the Straight Path).
32.4. God is He Who has created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six days, then established Himself on the Supreme Throne. You have, apart from Him, no guardian (to whom you might refer the ultimate meaning and outcome of your affairs), nor any intermediary (who, without His leave, can cause anything of use to reach you). Will you not reflect and be mindful?
32.5. He directs the affair from heaven to the earth; then the affair ascends to Him in a dayâ€” the measure of which is a thousand years of what you reckon.
32.6. Such is He, the Knower of the Unseen (of all that lies beyond sense-perception) and the witnessed (the sensed realm), the All-Glorious with irresistible might, the All-Compassionate:
32.7. He Who makes excellent everything that He creates; and He originated the creation of humankind from clay;
32.8. Then He made his reproduction dependent upon an extraction of humble fluid;
32.9. Then He fashioned him in due proportions, and breathed into him out of His Spirit; and He appointed for you (the faculty of) hearing, and eyes, and hearts (for understanding, feeling and insight). Scarcely do you give thanks!
32.10. Yet they say: "What! When we have been (dead and) lost in the earth, will we then be created anew?" No, (they do not really regard being created anew as impossible; rather,) they are unbelievers in the meeting with their Lord.
