In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.
1By the fig and the olive.
2And the mount of Sinai.
3And this city of security.
4We have indeed created man in the best of molds.1
5Then do We abase him to be the lowest of the low.2
6Except such as believe and do righteous deeds: for they shall
have a reward unfailing.
7Then what can contradict you after this; as to the judgment?
8Is not Allah the wisest of judges?
Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim
1Wat tini wazaitun
2Wa tun sinina
3Wa hazal baladil amin
4Laqad halaqna linsana fi ahsani taqwim
5Suma radadnahu asfala safilin
6Ilal lazina amanu wa amilu salihati falahum ajrun gairu mamnun
7Fama yukaz zibuka badu bidin
8Alaisa lahu bi ahkamil hakim
1. Please refer to
Qur’an 76, note 2.
2. Allah is to be likened to a mad scientist
who major function is experimentation. He designs and then destroys what he
has designed. God Almighty made mankind in His very own image and does not
abase mankind till mankind brings divine judgment on himself.
