Hath made known the Qur´an.
He hath created man.
He hath taught him utterance.
The sun and the moon are made punctual.
The stars and the trees prostrate.
And the sky He hath uplifted; and He hath set the measure,
That ye exceed not the measure,
But observe the measure strictly, nor fall short thereof.
And the earth hath He appointed for (His) creatures,
Wherein are fruit and sheathed palm-trees,
Husked grain and scented herb.
Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny?
He created man of clay like the potter´s,
And the jinn did He create of smokeless fire.
Lord of the two Easts, and Lord of the two Wests!
He hath loosed the two seas. They meet.
There is a barrier between them. They encroach not (one upon the other).
