Section 3

[Luqman 31:20] Did you not see that Allah has made all whatever is in the heavens and all whatever is in the earth, subservient for you and bestowed His favours upon you in full, both visible and hidden? And some men argue regarding Allah, with neither knowledge, nor guidance, nor a clear Book!

[Luqman 31:21] And when it is said to them, “Follow what Allah has sent down”, they say, “On the contrary, we shall only follow that upon which we found our forefathers”; even if the devil was calling them to the punishment of hell?

[Luqman 31:22] Whoever submits his face to Allah and is righteous – so he has indeed grasped the firm knot; and towards Allah only is the culmination of all things.

[Luqman 31:23] And whoever disbelieves – then do not be aggrieved by his disbelief (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him); they have to return to Us, and We will inform them what they were doing; indeed Allah knows what lies within the hearts.

[Luqman 31:24] We shall give them some usage, then making them helpless take them towards a severe punishment.

[Luqman 31:25] And if you ask them, “Who created the heavens and the earth?” - they will surely answer, “Allah”; proclaim, “All Praise is to Allah”; in fact most of them do not know.

[Luqman 31:26] To Allah only belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and in the earth; indeed Allah only is the Absolute, the Most Praiseworthy.

[Luqman 31:27] And if all the trees in the earth were pens, and the seas were its ink, with seven more seas to back it up - the Words of Allah will not finish; indeed Allah is Almighty, Wise.

[Luqman 31:28] Creating you all and raising you from the dead are like that of one soul *; indeed Allah is All Hearing, All Knowing. (He can create you slowly or all at once).
