Verses

Bis-millahi ar-rahman, ar-raheem.
In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful.

quran-header-2015The Compassionate (Allah).[1] Who taught you the Qur’an,[2] created man[3] and taught him how to speak and convey his feelings and thoughts.[4] The sun and the moon move along their computed courses.[5] The shrubs and the trees prostrate in adoration.[6] He has raised the heaven on high and created the balance:[7] don’t ever tamper with this balance.[8] Therefore, you also establish weight with justice and do not give less measure.[9] He laid out the earth for His creatures,[10] with all its fruits and palms having sheathed clusters,[11] and grain with husk and scented herbs.[12] So, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[13] He created man from sounding clay similar to pottery,[14] and created jinns from smokeless fire.[15] So, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[16] 55:[1-16]

He is the Lord of the two easts and the Lord of the two wests.[17] So, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[18] He has made the two oceans apparently meeting together,[19] yet, between them is a barrier which they cannot cross.[20] So, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[21] He produces pearls and coral, from both of them.[22] So, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[23] His are the ships looming up like mountains on the sea.[24] So, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[25] 55:[17-25]

Ameen.
