Verse 13:1

الٓـمّٓرٰ تِلۡكَ اٰيٰتُ الۡكِتٰبِ​ؕ وَالَّذِىۡۤ اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ الۡحَـقُّ وَلٰـكِنَّ اَكۡثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ‏

A.L.M.R. Alif?Laam-Meem-Ra. (Allah, Lateef the Unfathomable, Majeed the Magnificent, Raaziq the Provider, states that), These are the verses of the Divine Writ, the scripture. What is revealed to you (O Prophet) from your Lord is the truth. Yet most people do not believe in it.

Verse 13:2

اَللّٰهُ الَّذِىۡ رَفَعَ السَّمٰوٰتِ بِغَيۡرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوۡنَهَا​ ثُمَّ اسۡتَوٰى عَلَى الۡعَرۡشِ​ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمۡسَ وَالۡقَمَرَ​ؕ كُلٌّ يَّجۡرِىۡ لِاَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى​ؕ يُدَبِّرُ الۡاَمۡرَ يُفَصِّلُ الۡاٰيٰتِ لَعَلَّكُمۡ بِلِقَآءِ رَبِّكُمۡ تُوۡقِنُوۡنَ‏ 

God is the One Who raised the skies without pillars visible to you. Then, upon the Throne of His Almightiness, He assumed Supreme Control of the entire Universe. He committed the sun and the moon to be of service, each running to an appointed term. He keeps Order in the Universe and He explains His messages in detail, so that you may be sure of meeting with your Lord. [Studying the Book of nature will bring mankind closer to their Lord. Until recently, the sun was thought to be stationary, but today we know that the sun, along with Solar System, is moving toward the 'Constellation of Hercules,' also known as the 'Solar Apex', at a speed of 12 miles per second, 43,200 miles per hour. 36:38]

Verse 13:3

وَهُوَ الَّذِىۡ مَدَّ الۡاَرۡضَ وَجَعَلَ فِيۡهَا رَوَاسِىَ وَاَنۡهٰرًا​ ؕ وَمِنۡ كُلِّ الثَّمَرٰتِ جَعَلَ فِيۡهَا زَوۡجَيۡنِ اثۡنَيۡنِ​ يُغۡشِى الَّيۡلَ النَّهَارَ​ ؕ اِنَّ فِىۡ ذٰ لِكَ لَاٰيٰتٍ لِّـقَوۡمٍ يَّتَفَكَّرُوۡنَ‏

He is the One Who has spread the earth wide and placed therein mountains firm like pegs, and flowing streams. And He created thereon couples of every kind of plants (and their fruit). He causes the night to cover the day. In all this, there are signs for people who think. [Plants have male and female flowers, and some trees like the date-palm are unisexual, male and female]

Verse 13:4

وَ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ قِطَعٌ مُّتَجٰوِرٰتٌ وَّجَنّٰتٌ مِّنۡ اَعۡنَابٍ وَّزَرۡعٌ وَّنَخِيۡلٌ صِنۡوَانٌ وَّغَيۡرُ صِنۡوَانٍ يُّسۡقٰى بِمَآءٍ وَّاحِدٍ وَنُفَضِّلُ بَعۡضَهَا عَلٰى بَعۡضٍ فِى الۡاُكُلِ​ؕ اِنَّ فِىۡ ذٰ لِكَ لَاٰيٰتٍ لِّـقَوۡمٍ يَّعۡقِلُوۡنَ‏ 

On earth there are many lots and tracts of land in proximity, yet widely differing from one another in composition and quality. On it, there are vineyards, and fields of grain, date and palm-trees, growing in clusters or standing alone. All of them receive the same water and yet, We have made some of them excel others in fruit. In all this, there are signs for people who use their intellect.

Verse 13:5

وَ اِنۡ تَعۡجَبۡ فَعَجَبٌ قَوۡلُهُمۡ ءَاِذَا كُنَّا تُرٰبًا ءَاِنَّا لَفِىۡ خَلۡقٍ جَدِيۡدٍ  ؕ اُولٰۤٮِٕكَ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا بِرَبِّهِمۡ​ۚ وَاُولٰۤٮِٕكَ الۡاَغۡلٰلُ فِىۡۤ اَعۡنَاقِهِمۡ​ۚ وَاُولٰۤٮِٕكَ اَصۡحٰبُ النَّارِ​ۚ هُمۡ فِيۡهَا خٰلِدُوۡنَ‏

If you wonder at this, then even more wondrous is their saying, 'What! After we have become dust, shall we be restored to life in a new act of creation?' They are the ones who deny their Lord. And they are the ones who will carry the shackles of their own making around their necks. They will be dwellers of the fire, to dwell therein.

Verse 13:6

وَيَسۡتَعۡجِلُوۡنَكَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ قَبۡلَ الۡحَسَنَةِ وَقَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِنۡ قَبۡلِهِمُ الۡمَثُلٰتُ​ؕ وَاِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُوۡ مَغۡفِرَةٍ لِّـلنَّاسِ عَلٰى ظُلۡمِهِمۡ​ۚ وَاِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَشَدِيۡدُ الۡعِقَابِ‏

(Instead of reflecting on the message), they challenge you (O Prophet) to hasten the disaster, rather than doing acts of benevolence. Sufficient examples have been set for them in the past. Your Lord is full of forgiveness for mankind despite their transgressions. But your Lord is also Strict in grasping. [He has designed the Law of Respite, the interim period when people can safely mend their ways]

Verse 13:7

وَيَقُوۡلُ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا لَوۡلَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ عَلَيۡهِ اٰيَةٌ مِّنۡ رَّبِّهٖؕ اِنَّمَاۤ اَنۡتَ مُنۡذِرٌ​ وَّ لِكُلِّ قَوۡمٍ هَادٍ‏

Those who deny the truth keep saying, 'Why has no miracle ever been bestowed upon him from his Lord?' But you (O Prophet) are only a warner and to every community is a guide. [The Perfect Divine Guidance through the Prophet shall be preserved in the form of the Qur'an for all times and all peoples 6:34, 6:91, 6:116, 10:64, 15:9 18:27, 41:53, 75:16-19. And his prime duty is to counsel mankind that false systems of life only end up in disaster]

Verse 13:8

اَللّٰهُ يَعۡلَمُ مَا تَحۡمِلُ كُلُّ اُنۡثٰى وَمَا تَغِيۡضُ الۡاَرۡحَامُ وَمَا تَزۡدَادُ ​ؕ وَكُلُّ شَىۡءٍ عِنۡدَهٗ بِمِقۡدَارٍ‏

God knows what every female bears, and what every womb releases or gains. Everything has a due measure with Him. [God's Guidance is a mercy to humanity. We may liken it to the nourishment of the embryo in the evolving environment of the womb. The embryo lodges in security and its needs are met in a timely fashion in perfect balance. Then the fetus comes to the world ready to thrive. This is how the Divine System, when established in a society, nourishes the individual]

Verse 13:9

عٰلِمُ الۡغَيۡبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ الۡكَبِيۡرُ الۡمُتَعَالِ‏

He has perfect knowledge of the visible and the invisible. He is the Great, Most High.

Verse 13:10

سَوَآءٌ مِّنۡكُمۡ مَّنۡ اَسَرَّ الۡقَوۡلَ وَ مَنۡ جَهَرَ بِهٖ وَمَنۡ هُوَ مُسۡتَخۡفٍۢ بِالَّيۡلِ وَسَارِبٌۢ بِالنَّهَارِ‏

It is all alike to Him whether any of you conceals his thoughts or declares them, and whether he seeks to hide under the cover of night or walks boldly in daylight.
