Verse 35:1

اَ لۡحَمۡدُ لِلّٰهِ فَاطِرِ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضِ جَاعِلِ الۡمَلٰٓٮِٕكَةِ رُسُلًا اُولِىۡۤ اَجۡنِحَةٍ مَّثۡنٰى وَثُلٰثَ وَرُبٰعَ ؕ يَزِيۡدُ فِى الۡخَـلۡقِ مَا يَشَآءُ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ قَدِيۡرٌ‏

All praise is due to God, the Originator of all Highs and Lows. He appoints His universal forces, having multiple functions e.g. message-bearers. He increases in creation as He wills. Certainly, God has appointed due measure for all things and events. [Faatir = Originator = Cleaver of new creation = Initiator = Creator from nothing (without matter). Malaaekah = Angels = "Mudabbirati- Amra" = The forces that implement Divine laws in the universe (79:5). Ajniha = Powers = Functions = Wings = Abilities = Strengths]

Verse 35:2

مَا يَفۡتَحِ اللّٰهُ لِلنَّاسِ مِنۡ رَّحۡمَةٍ فَلَا مُمۡسِكَ لَهَا ۚ وَمَا يُمۡسِكۡ ۙ فَلَا مُرۡسِلَ لَهٗ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِه ؕ وَهُوَ الۡعَزِيۡزُ الۡحَكِيۡمُ‏ 

Whatever grace God opens for mankind, none can withhold it. And whatever He withholds, none can release it, for He is the Almighty, the Wise. [He uses His Migh?t with grace and wisdom]

Verse 35:3

يٰۤاَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اذۡكُرُوۡا نِعۡمَتَ اللّٰهِ عَلَيۡكُمۡؕ هَلۡ مِنۡ خَالِـقٍ غَيۡرُ اللّٰهِ يَرۡزُقُكُمۡ مِّنَ السَّمَآءِ وَالۡاَرۡضِؕ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَۖ فَاَنّٰى تُؤۡفَكُوۡنَ‏

O Mankind! Think of the blessings of God upon you. Is there any creator other than God Who provides for you from the heaven and earth? There is no god but He. How could you be wandering?

Verse 35:4

وَاِنۡ يُّكَذِّبُوۡكَ فَقَدۡ كُذِّبَتۡ رُسُلٌ مِّنۡ قَبۡلِكَؕ وَاِلَى اللّٰهِ تُرۡجَعُ الۡاُمُوۡرُ‏

(O Messenger) if they deny you, Messengers before you were also denied. But all affairs ultimately end up in His Court

Verse 35:5

يٰۤـاَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اِنَّ وَعۡدَ اللّٰهِ حَقٌّ فَلَا تَغُرَّنَّكُمُ الۡحَيٰوةُ الدُّنۡيَاوَلَا يَغُرَّنَّكُمۡ بِاللّٰهِ الۡغَرُوۡرُ‏

O Mankind! God"s promise is true. So let not the present life deceive you, nor let the Deceiver deceive you about God. [Al-Gharoor = Deceiver = Satan = Selfish desires = Devil = Satanic people = Those who mislead]

Verse 35:6

اِنَّ الشَّيۡطٰنَ لَـكُمۡ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوۡهُ عَدُوًّا ؕ اِنَّمَا يَدۡعُوۡا حِزۡبَهٗ لِيَكُوۡنُوۡا مِنۡ اَصۡحٰبِ السَّعِيۡرِؕ‏

Satan is a foe to you, so treat him as a foe. He only calls his party to become companions of the Blazing fire.

Verse 35:7

اَ لَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ شَدِيۡدٌ ؕ وَّالَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوۡا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لَهُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَةٌ وَّاَجۡرٌ كَبِيۡرٌ‏

For those who are bent on rejecting the truth, is a severe retribution. And for those who accept the truth and work for the welfare of others, is the protection of forgiveness and a great reward.

Verse 35:8

اَفَمَنۡ زُيِّنَ لَهٗ سُوۡٓءُ عَمَلِهٖ فَرَاٰهُ حَسَنًا ؕ فَاِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُضِلُّ مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ وَيَهۡدِىۡ مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ ​ۖ  فَلَا تَذۡهَبۡ نَـفۡسُكَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ حَسَرٰتٍ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ عَلِيۡمٌۢ بِمَا يَصۡنَـعُوۡنَ‏

Can you think of him whose persistence in evil (blunts his sensitivity) so that he looks upon it as good? Surely, God lets go astray only him who wills to go astray, just as He guides him who wills to be guided. Therefore, do not waste yourself in sorrowing over them. Surely, God is Aware of all they contrive. [Laws of guidance, 4:88]

Verse 35:9

وَاللّٰهُ الَّذِىۡۤ اَرۡسَلَ الرِّيٰحَ فَتُثِيۡرُ سَحَابًا فَسُقۡنٰهُ اِلٰى بَلَدٍ مَّيِّتٍ فَاَحۡيَيۡنَا بِهِ الۡاَرۡضَ بَعۡدَ مَوۡتِهَا ؕ كَذٰلِكَ النُّشُوۡرُ‏ 

And God is the One Who sends the winds and they raise a cloud; then We lead it to a dead land and revive the earth after it had been lifeless. Thus is the Resurrection (and revival of individuals and communities with Divine Guidance is an appropriate similitude).

Verse 35:10

مَنۡ كَانَ يُرِيۡدُ الۡعِزَّةَ فَلِلّٰهِ الۡعِزَّةُ جَمِيۡعًا ؕ اِلَيۡهِ يَصۡعَدُ الۡـكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ وَالۡعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ يَرۡفَعُهٗ ؕ وَ الَّذِيۡنَ يَمۡكُرُوۡنَ السَّيِّاٰتِ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ شَدِيۡدٌ  ؕ وَمَكۡرُ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُوَ يَبُوۡرُ‏

Whoever desires dignity should know that to God belongs all Dignity and He is the Source of all dignity. Unto Him attain loftiness all noble words and ideas, and He exalts every act of beneficence. (That is how individuals and communities can rise in honor.) But those who plot to disrupt others" lives, for them is dire retribution, and their plotting is bound to come to naught. [14:24 Kalimatan Tayyebah = Goodly Word = Noble Ideology]
