5By command from Our presence. For We ever send revelations.
6As a mercy from your Lord: for He hears and knows all things;
7The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if
you have an assured faith.
8There is no god but He: it is He who gives life and gives death,
the Lord to you and your earliest ancestors.

15We shall indeed remove the penalty for a while but truly you
will revert to your ways.
16One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught, We will
indeed exact retribution!
17We did before them try the people of Pharaoh: there came to
them an apostle most honorable.

38And We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them
merely in sport:

49“Taste this! Truly were you mighty full of honor!
50“Truly this is what you used to doubt!”
51As to the righteous they will be in a position of security
52Among gardens and springs;
