The Creation and the Purpose of Human Life

1 Alif L'am M'im Suad.
2 This Book is revealed to you; let there be no hesitation in your heart about it so that you may thereby warn the unbelievers and remind the believers.
3 Say: "O people, follow what has been brought down to you from your Rabb (Sustainer) and do not follow other patrons besides Him." Yet little do they take admonition.
4 How many towns have We destroyed for their sins? Our scourge took them all of a sudden at night or while they were taking their afternoon rest,
5 and when our scourge fell upon them, their only cry was: "We have indeed been wrongdoers."
6 On the Day of Judgement We shall question those to whom Rasools (Messengers) were sent and We shall also question the Rasools (Messengers) about Our message and its response.

7 Then We shall tell their whole story as an eye witness for We were never absent at any time or from any place. 8 On that Day, the scale of justice shall be established. Those whose scale of good deeds will be heavy, they are the ones who will attain felicity, 9 and those whose scale is light, they shall find themselves in loss for they had done injustice to Our revelations.

{Story of Adam and Iblees (Shaitan) and Shaitan vowed to mislead Adam and his descendants}

10 We are the One Who established you on earth, and provided you means of your sustenance therein: yet little it is that you pay thanks. 11 Indeed We created you, then We fashioned you, then We asked the angels: "Prostrate yourselves before Adam." They all prostrated accordingly except Iblees (Shaitan) who did not join those who prostrated.

12 Allah said: "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" He replied: "I am better than he; you created me from fire and him from clay." 13 Allah said: "Get down from here. You have no right to brag here of your superiority. Get out, henceforth you are of the petty ones."

14 Shaitan requested: "Give me respite till the Day of Resurrection." 15 Allah said: "The respite you requested is hereby granted."

16 Shaitan declared: "Since You let me deviate, now I will lie in ambush for mankind on Your Right
Way. 17 I Will come upon them from the front, from the rear, from the right, and from the left, and You will not find most of them to be grateful." 18 Allah said: "Get out from here, you despicable outcast; I will certainly fill hell with you and all of them who follow you."

{Shaitan cunningly seduced Adam and Eve to disobey Allah and Their repentance and Allah's conditional acceptance}
19 Allah said: "O Adam! Dwell with your wife in paradise and eat any fruit you please; but never approach this tree or you shall both become wrongdoers." 20 But Shaitan tempted them so that he might reveal to them the private parts of their bodies which they had never seen before. He told them: "Your Rabb has forbidden you to approach this tree only to prevent you from becoming angels or immortals."

21 And he swore to them both: "I am your sincere adviser." 22 Thus he cunningly seduced them, and when they ate from the tree, their shame became visible to them and they began to cover themselves with the leaves of the garden. Then their Rabb called out to them: "Did I not forbid you to approach that tree, and did not I warn you that Shaitan was your open enemy?" 23 They both replied: "Our Rabb! We have wronged our souls. If You do not forgive us and have mercy on us, we shall certainly be of the losers."

24 Allah said: "Go down, some of you are the enemy of others. The Earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood for a fixed term." 25 He further said: "Therein you shall live and therein you shall die, and therefrom you shall be raised to life."
{Children of Adam are warned not to fall into the trap of Shaitan like Adam and Allah never commands what is shameful}
26 O children of Adam! We have sent down to you clothing to cover your nakedness and as an adornment, however, the best clothing is the clothing of piety. This is one of Allah's revelations so that the people may learn a lesson. 27 O children of Adam! Let not Shaitan seduce you in the same manner as he seduced your parents out of paradise through stripping them of their clothing in order to expose their nakedness. He and his tribe watch you from where you cannot see them. We have permitted the shaitans to be the guardians over the unbelievers.



Surah Al-Araf  1-27 Al-Quran
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."
