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

[Sajdah 32:1] Alif-Lam-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language – Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)

[Sajdah 32:2] The revelation of the Book is, without doubt, from the Lord Of The Creation.

[Sajdah 32:3] What! They dare say that, “He has fabricated it”? In fact it is the Truth from your Lord, in order that you warn a nation towards whom no Herald of Warning came before you, in the hope of their attaining guidance.

[Sajdah 32:4] It is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six days - then (befitting His Majesty) established Himself upon the Throne (of control); leaving Allah, there is neither a friend nor an intercessor for you; so do you not ponder?

[Sajdah 32:5] He plans the affair from the heaven to the earth - then it will return to Him on the Day which amounts to a thousand years in your count.

[Sajdah 32:6] This is the All Knowing - of all the hidden and the visible, the Most Honourable, the Most Merciful.

[Sajdah 32:7] The One Who created all things excellent, and Who initiated the creation of man from clay.

[Sajdah 32:8] Then kept his posterity with a part of an abject fluid.

[Sajdah 32:9] Then made him proper and blew into him a spirit from Him, and bestowed ears and eyes and hearts to you; very little thanks do you offer!

[Sajdah 32:10] And they said, “When we have mingled into the earth, will we be created again?”; in fact they disbelieve in the meeting with their Lord.

[Sajdah 32:11] Proclaim, “The angel of death, who is appointed over you, causes you to die and then towards your Lord you will return.”
