Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[A/I`mran 3:1] Alif-Laam-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)

[A/I`mran 3:2] Allah - none is worthy of worship, except Him, He is Alive (eternally, on His own) and the Upholder (keeps others established).

[A/I`mran 3:3] He has sent down to you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) this true Book (the Holy Qur’an), confirming the Books before it, and He sent down the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Bible). -

[A/I`mran 3:4] Before this, a guidance to mankind; and sent down the Judgement (Criterion to judge between right and wrong); indeed for those who disbelieved in the verses of Allah, is a severe punishment; and Allah is the Almighty, the Avenger (of the wrong).

[A/I`mran 3:5] Indeed nothing is hidden from Allah, neither in the earth nor in the heavens.

[A/I`mran 3:6] It is He Who fashions (moulds) you in your mothers’ wombs as He wills; none is worthy of worship except Him, the Almighty (the Most Honourable), the Wise.

[A/I`mran 3:7] It is He Who has sent down to you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) this Book (the Qur’an) containing the verses that have a clear meaning - they are the core of the Book - and other verses the meanings of which are indistinct; those in whose hearts is deviation pursue the verses having indistinct meanings, in order to cause turmoil and seeking its (wrongful) interpretation; and only Allah knows its proper interpretation; and those having sound knowledge say, “We believe in it, all of it is from our Lord”; and none accept guidance except the men of understanding.

[A/I`mran 3:8] “Our Lord! Do not deviate our hearts after You have guided us, and bestow mercy on us from Yourself; indeed You only are the Great Bestower.”

[A/I`mran 3:9] “Our Lord! Indeed You will gather all mankind for a Day about which there is no doubt"; indeed Allah’s promise does not change.
