The Believers (Al-Mu' minoon)
118 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Prophets (Al-Anbyaa') before Prostration (Al-Sajdah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Successful indeed are the believers, (1) who are submissive to God in their prayers, (2) And who keep aloof from what is vain, (3) who observe Zakah; (4) Who abstain from sex, (5) except with their spouses and slave-girls. The practice of carnal relations is lawful with them. (6) But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors; (7) And those who of their trusts and covenant are keepers. (8) And who (strictly) guard their prayers;- (9) Such are the inheritors (10) Who will inherit Paradise, and live in it for ever. (11) Indeed We created man from a chosen soil. (12) then We placed him as a drop of fluid in a safe place, (13) The living germ, then, was turned into a shapeless lump of flesh from which bones were formed. The bones, then, were covered with flesh. At this stage, We caused it to become another creature. All blessings belong to God, the best Creator. (14) Thereafter you will certainly die (15) Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection ye are raised (again). (16) And indeed We have created seven paths above you; and We are not unmindful of the creation. (17) We have sent a measure of water from the sky to stay on earth and We have the power to take it away. (18) With it We grow for you gardens of date-palms and vines: in them have ye abundant fruits: and of them ye eat (and have enjoyment),- (19) The tree that grows on Mount Sinai yields oil and seasoning for those who eat. (20) And verily in the cattle for you is a lesson. We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies, and for you in them are advantages many, and of them ye eat. (21) And on them and on the ships you are borne. (22)
