[2:1]Alif. Lām. Mīm .[2:2] This Book has no doubt in it - a guidance for theGod-fearing,[2:3]who believe in the Unseen, and are steadfast inSalāh (prayer), and spend out of what We haveprovided them;[2:4]and who believe in what has been revealed toyou and what has been revealed before you; andthey have faith in the Hereafter.[2:5]It is these who are guided by their Lord; and it is just these who are successful.[2:6]Surely for those who have disbelieved, it is allthe same whether you warn them or you warnthem not: they do not believe.[2:7]Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on theirhearing; and on their eyes there is a covering,and for them awaits a mighty punishment.[2:8]And among men there are some who say, “Webelieve in Allah and in the Last Day”, yet theyare not believers.[2:9] They try to deceive Allah and those who believe,while they are not deceiving anyone exceptthemselves, although they are unaware of it.[2:10]In their hearts there is a malady, so Allah hasmade them grow in their malady; and for themthere is a grievous punishment, because theyhave been lying.[2:11]When it is said to them, “Do not spread disorderon the earth”, they say, “We are but reformers.”[2:12]Beware, it is, in fact, they who spread disorder,but they do not appreciate.[2:13]And when it is said to them, “Believe as peoplehave believed,” they say, “Shall we believe asthe fools have believed?” Beware, it is, in fact,they who are the fools, but they do not know.[2:14]When they meet those who believe, they say,“We have entered Faith;” but when they arealone with their satans, they say, “Indeed, weare with you; we were only mocking.”[2:15]It is Allah who mocks at them, and lets them goon wandering blindly in their rebellion.[2:16] These are the people who have bought error atthe price of guidance; so their trade has broughtno gain, nor have they reached the right Path.[2:17] Their situation is like that of a man who kindles afire, and when it illuminates everything aroundhim, Allah takes away their lights and leavesthem in layers of darkness, so that they seenothing.[2:18]Deaf, dumb and blind, they shall not return.[2:19]Or (it is) like a rainstorm from the sky, bringingdarkness, thunder and lightning; they thrusttheir fingers in their ears against thethunderclaps for fear of death, -and Allahencompasses the disbelievers-[2:20]
