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

[Mominun 23:01] Successful indeed are the believers.

[Mominun 23:02] Those who humbly cry in their prayers.

[Mominun 23:03] And who do not incline towards indecent matters.

[Mominun 23:04] And who pay the (obligatory) charity.

[Mominun 23:05] And who guard their private organs.

[Mominun 23:06] Except from their wives or the legal bondwomen that they possess, for then there is no blame upon them.

[Mominun 23:07] So whoever desires more than these two - they are crossing the limits.

[Mominun 23:08] And those who keep proper regard for their trusts and their pledges.

[Mominun 23:09] And who guard their prayers.

[Mominun 23:10] They are the inheritors.

[Mominun 23:11] Those who will get the inheritance of Paradise; they will abide in it forever.

[Mominun 23:12] Indeed We created man from a chosen soil.

[Mominun 23:13] Then made him a drop of fluid in a secure shelter.

[Mominun 23:14] We then turned the drop of fluid into a clot of blood, then the clot into a small lump of flesh, then the lump into bones, then covered the bones with flesh; then developed it in a different mould; therefore Most Auspicious is Allah, the Best Creator.

[Mominun 23:15] Then after that, certainly all of you are to die.

[Mominun 23:16] Then you will all be raised on the Day of Resurrection.

[Mominun 23:17] And indeed We have created seven paths above you; and We are not unmindful of the creation.
