SURA I

KAF

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

PRAISE BE to God, Lord of the worlds

The Compassionate, the Merciful

King on the Day of Reckoning

Thee only do we worship, and to Thee do we cry for help.

Guide Thou us on the straight path,

The path of those to whom Thou has been gracious;--with whom Thou art not angry, and who go not astray.

SURA II

THE COW

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

ELIF. LAM. Mim. No doubt is there about this Book: It is a guidance to the God-fearing,

Who believe in the Unseen, who observe prayer, and out of what We have bestowed on them, expend for God;

And who believe in what hath been sent down to thee, and in what hath been sent down before thee, and full faith have they in the life to come:

These are guided by their Lord; and with these it shall be well.

As to the infidels, alike is it to them whether Thou warn them or warn them not--they will not believe:

Their hearts and their ears hath God sealed up; and over their eyes is a covering. For them, a severe chastisement

And some there are who say, "We believe in God, and in the latter day: " Yet are they not believers

Fain would they deceive God and those who have believed; but they deceive themselves only, and know it not.

Diseased are their hearts And that disease hath God increased to them. Theirs a sore chastisement, for that they treated their Prophet as a liar

10 And when it is said to them, "Cause not disorders in the earth: " they say, "Nay, rather do we set them right."

Is it not that they are themselves the authors of disorder? But they perceive it not

And when it is said to them, "Believe as other men have believed;" they say, "Shall we believe as the fools have believed?" Is it not that they are themselves the fools? But they know it not

And when they meet the faithful they say, "We believe;" but when they are apart with their Satans they say, "Verily we hold with you, and at them we only mock."

God shall mock at them, and keep them long in their rebellion, wandering in perplexity.

These are they who have purchased error at the price of guidance: but their traffic hath not been gainful, neither are they guided at all.

They are like one who kindleth a fire, and when it hath thrown its light on all around him. . . . God taketh away their light and leaveth them in darkness--they cannot see —

Deaf, dumb, blind: therefore they shall not retrace their steps from error

Or like those who, when there cometh a storm-cloud out of the heaven, big with darkness, thunder and lightning, thrust their fingers into their ears because of the thunder-clap, for fear of death God is round about the infidels.

The lightning almost snatcheth away their eyes So oft as it gleameth on them they walk on in it, but when darkness closeth upon them, they stop And if God pleased, of their ears and of their eyes would He surely deprive them: --verily God is almighty O men of Mecca adore your Lord, who hath created you and those who were before you: haply ye will fear Him

20 Who hath made the earth a bed for you, and the heav
