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

[Hud 11:1] Alif-Lam-Ra*; "This is a Book, the verses of which are full of wisdom - then explained in detail - from the Wise, the Well Aware." (* Alphabets of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)

[Hud 11:2] "That do not worship anyone except Allah; indeed I am for you a Herald of Warning and Glad Tidings, from Him."

[Hud 11:3] "And ask forgiveness from your Lord and incline towards Him in repentance, He will provide you excellent sustenance until the appointed time and will bestow superiority to every one who excels; and if you turn away, I then fear the punishment of the Great Day upon you."

[Hud 11:4] "To Allah only you have to return, and He is Able to do all things."

[Hud 11:5] Pay heed! They fold up their breasts in order to conceal from Allah; pay heed! Even when they fully cover themselves up with their clothes, Allah knows all that what hide and all what they disclose; indeed He knows what is in the hearts.
