تِلۡكَ اٰيٰتُ الۡكِتٰبِ الۡحَكِيۡمِۙ‏

These are the verses of the Book, full of wisdom.

Verse 31:3

هُدًى وَّرَحۡمَةً لِّلۡمُحۡسِنِيۡنَۙ‏

Providing guidance and mercy to those who wish to live a balanced life and do good to humanity.

Verse 31:4

الَّذِيۡنَ يُقِيۡمُوۡنَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَيُؤۡتُوۡنَ الزَّكٰوةَ وَهُمۡ بِالۡاٰخِرَةِ هُمۡ يُوۡقِنُوۡنَؕ‏

Such people strive to establish the Divine System and set up the Economic Order of Zakaat. For, it is they who have conviction in the eternity of the human 'self' and therefore, in the life to come.

Verse 31:5

اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ عَلٰى هُدًى مِّنۡ رَّبِّهِمۡ​ وَاُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ الۡمُفۡلِحُوۡنَ‏ 

They are the ones who are on the guided path of their Lord and they are the ones who will be ultimately successful.

Verse 31:6

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنۡ يَّشۡتَرِىۡ لَهۡوَ الۡحَدِيۡثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَنۡ سَبِيۡلِ اللّٰهِ بِغَيۡرِ عِلۡمٍ​ۖ وَّيَتَّخِذَهَا هُزُوًا ​ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ مُّهِيۡنٌ‏

But among people, there are those who invest their time in Hadith which is unfounded, so as to lead those without knowledge away from the path of God, making mockery of it (the Qur'an). For such there is a humiliating punishment in store. [In order to defend the 'Imams' of Hadith, some commentators try to explain away Lahwal Hadith as music. This obviously makes no linguistic or contextual sense]

Verse 31:7

وَاِذَا تُتۡلٰى عَلَيۡهِ اٰيٰتُنَا وَلّٰى مُسۡتَكۡبِرًا كَاَنۡ لَّمۡ يَسۡمَعۡهَا كَاَنَّ فِىۡۤ اُذُنَيۡهِ وَقۡرًا​ۚ فَبَشِّرۡهُ بِعَذَابٍ اَلِيۡمٍ‏

Whenever Our verses are conveyed to such a purchaser of Hadith, he turns away in arrogance as if he never heard them - as if there were deafness in his ears. So give him the tidings of a painful doom.

Verse 31:8

اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوۡا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لَهُمۡ جَنّٰتُ النَّعِيۡمِۙ‏ 

Whereas those who believe in the Word of God and fulfill the needs of others, for them are the Gardens of delight.

Verse 31:9

خٰلِدِيۡنَ فِيۡهَا ؕ وَعۡدَ اللّٰهِ حَقًّا ​ؕ وَهُوَ الۡعَزِيۡزُ الۡحَكِيۡمُ‏ 

To abide therein according to God's true promise. For, He is the Mighty, the Wise.

Verse 31:10

خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ بِغَيۡرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوۡنَهَا​ وَاَ لۡقٰى فِى الۡاَرۡضِ رَوَاسِىَ اَنۡ تَمِيۡدَ بِكُمۡ وَبَثَّ فِيۡهَا مِنۡ كُلِّ دَآ بَّةٍ​ ؕ وَاَنۡزَلۡنَا مِنَ السَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَاَنۡۢبَتۡنَا فِيۡهَا مِنۡ كُلِّ زَوۡجٍ كَرِيۡمٍ‏

He has created the skies without any pillars and supports that you can see, and has placed firm mountains upon the earth, lest it sway with you, and He has dispersed therein all kinds of creatures. And We send down water from the sky, and thus We cause plants of every goodly kind to grow therein. [Mountains came into being millions of years ago as the earth was cooling off and the earth crust was shrinking 16:15, 78:7]
