          In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.001

PICKTHAL: The commandment of Allah will come to pass, so seek not ye to
hasten it. Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate (with
Him).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.002

PICKTHAL: He sendeth down the angels with the Spirit of His command unto
whom He will of His bondmen, (saying): Warn mankind that there is no Allah
save Me, so keep your duty unto Me.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.003

PICKTHAL: He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth. High be He
Exalted above all that they associate (with Him).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.004

PICKTHAL: He hath created man from a drop of fluid, yet behold! he is an
open opponent.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.005

PICKTHAL: And the cattle hath He created, whence ye have warm clothing and
uses, and whereof ye eat;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.006

PICKTHAL: And wherein is beauty for you, when ye bring them home, and when
ye take them out to pasture.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.007

PICKTHAL: And they bear your loads for you unto a land ye could not reach
save with great trouble to yourselves. Lo! your Lord is Full of Pity,
Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.008

PICKTHAL: And horses and mules and asses (hath He created) that ye may ride
them, and for ornament. And He createth that which ye know not.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.009

PICKTHAL: And Allah's is the direction of the way, and some (roads) go not
straight. And had He willed He would have led you all aright.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.010

PICKTHAL: He it is Who sendeth down water from the sky, whence ye have
drink, and whence are trees on which ye send your beasts to pasture.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.011

PICKTHAL: Therewith He causeth crops to grow for you, and the olive and the
date-palm and grapes and all kinds of fruit. Lo! herein is indeed a portent
for people who reflect.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.012

PICKTHAL: And He hath constrained the night and the day and the sun and the
moon to be of service unto you, and the stars are made subservient by His
command. Lo! herein indeed are portents for people who have sense.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.013

PICKTHAL: And whatsoever He hath created for you in the earth of divers
hues, lo! therein is indeed a portent for people who take heed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.014

PICKTHAL: And He it is Who hath constrained the sea to be of service that
ye eat fresh meat from thence, and bring forth from thence ornaments which
ye wear. And thou seest the ships ploughing it that ye (mankind) may seek
of His bounty and that haply ye may give thanks.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.015

PICKTHAL: And He hath cast into the earth firm hills that it quake not with
you, and streams and roads that ye may find a way.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.016

PICKTHAL: And landmarks (too), and by the star they find a way.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.017

PICKTHAL: Is He then Who createth as him who createth not? Will ye not then
remember?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.018

PICKTHAL: And if ye would count the favour of Allah ye cannot reckon it.
Lo! Allah is indeed Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.019

PICKTHAL: And Allah knoweth that which ye keep hidden and that which ye
proclaim.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.020

PICKTHAL: Those unto whom they cry beside Allah created naught, but are
themselves created.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.021

PICKTHAL: (They are) dead, not living. And they know not when they will be
raised.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.022

PICKTHAL: Your Allah is One Allah. But as for those who believe not in the
Hereafter their hearts refuse to know, for they are proud.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.023

PICKTHAL: Assuredly Allah knoweth that which they keep hidden and that
which they proclaim. Lo! He loveth not the proud.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.024

PICKTHAL: And when it is said unto them: What hath your Lord revealed? they
say: (Mere) fables of the men of old,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.025

PICKTHAL: That they may bear their burdens undiminished on the Day of
Resurrection, with somewhat of the burdens of those whom they mislead
without knowledge. Ah! evil is that which they bear!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.026

PICKTHAL: Those before them plotted, so Allah struck at the foundations of
their building, and then the roof fell down upon them from above them, and
the doom came on them whence they knew not;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.027

PICKTHAL: Then on the Day of Resurrection He will disgrace them and will
say: Where are My partners, for whose sake ye opposed (My guidance)? Those
who have been given knowledge will say: Disgrace this day and evil are upon
the disbelievers,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.028

PICKTHAL: Whom the angels cause to die while they are wronging themselves.
Then will they make full submission (saying): We used not to do any wrong.
Nay! Surely Allah is Knower of what ye used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.029

PICKTHAL: So enter the gates of hell, to dwell therein for ever. Woeful
indeed will be the lodging of the arrogant.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.030

PICKTHAL: And it is said unto those who ward off (evil): What hath your
Lord revealed? They say: Good. For those who do good in this world there is
a good (reward) and the home of the Hereafter will be better. Pleasant
indeed will be the home of those who ward off (evil) -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.031

PICKTHAL: Gardens of Eden which they enter, underneath which rivers flow,
wherein they have what they will. Thus Allah repayeth those who ward off
(evil),

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.032

PICKTHAL: Those whom the angels cause to die (when they are) good. They
say: Peace be unto you! Enter the Garden because of what ye used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.033

PICKTHAL: Await they aught say that the angels should come unto them or thy
Lord's command should come to pass? Even so did those before them. Allah
wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.034

PICKTHAL: So that the evils of what they did smote them, and that which
they used to mock surrounded them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.035

PICKTHAL: And the idolaters say: Had Allah willed, we had not worshipped
aught beside Him, we and our fathers, nor had we forbidden aught without
(command from) Him. Even so did those before them. Are the messengers
charged with aught save plain conveyance (of the message)?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.036

PICKTHAL: And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger,
(proclaiming): Serve Allah and shun false gods. Then some of them (there
were) whom Allah guided, and some of them (there were) upon whom error had
just hold. Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence
for the deniers!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.037

PICKTHAL: Even if thou (O Muhammad) desirest their right guidance, still
Allah assuredly will not guide him who misleadeth. Such have no helpers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.038

PICKTHAL: And they swear by Allah their most binding oaths (that) Allah
will not raise up him who dieth. Nay, but it is a promise (binding) upon
Him in truth, but most of mankind know not,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.039

PICKTHAL: That He may explain unto them that wherein they differ, and that
those who disbelieved may know that they were liars.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.040

PICKTHAL: And Our word unto a thing, when We intend it, is only that We say
unto it: Be! and it is.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.041

PICKTHAL: And those who became fugitives for the cause of Allah after they
had been oppressed, We verily shall give them goodly lodging in the world,
and surely the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if they but knew;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.042

PICKTHAL: Such as are steadfast and put their trust in Allah.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.043

PICKTHAL: And We sent not (as Our messengers) before thee other than men
whom We inspired - Ask the followers of the Remembrance if ye know not! -

revelation-- so ask the followers of the Reminder if you do not know--

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.044

PICKTHAL: With clear proofs and writings; and We have revealed unto thee
the Remembrance that thou mayst explain to mankind that which hath been
revealed for them, and that haply they may reflect.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.045

PICKTHAL: Are they who plan ill-deeds then secure that Allah will not cause
the earth to swallow them, or that the doom will not come on them whence
they know not?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.046

PICKTHAL: Or that He will not seize them in their going to and fro so that
there be no escape for them?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.047

PICKTHAL: Or that He will not seize them with a gradual wasting? Lo! thy
Lord is indeed Full of Pity, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.048

PICKTHAL: Have they not observed all things that Allah hath created, how
their shadows incline to the right and to the left, making prostration unto
Allah, and they are lowly?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.049

PICKTHAL: And unto Allah maketh prostration whatsoever is in the heavens
and whatsoever is in the earth of living creatures, and the angels (also)
and they are not proud.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.050

PICKTHAL: They fear their Lord above them, and do what they are bidden.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.051

PICKTHAL: Allah hath said: Choose not two gods. There is only One Allah. So
of Me, Me only, be in awe.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.052

PICKTHAL: Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth,
and religion is His for ever. Will ye then fear any other than Allah?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.053

PICKTHAL: And whatever of comfort ye enjoy, it is from Allah. Then, when
misfortune reacheth you, unto Him ye cry for help.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.054

PICKTHAL: And afterward, when He hath rid you of the misfortune, behold! a
set of you attribute partners to their Lord,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.055

PICKTHAL: So as to deny that which We have given them. Then enjoy life
(while ye may), for ye will come to know.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.056

PICKTHAL: And they assign a portion of that which We have given them unto
what they know not. By Allah! but ye will indeed be asked concerning (all)
that ye used to invent.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.057

PICKTHAL: And they assign unto Allah daughters - Be He Glorified! - and
unto themselves what they desire;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.058

PICKTHAL: When if one of them receiveth tidings of the birth of a female,
his face remaineth darkened, and he is wroth inwardly.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.059

PICKTHAL: He hideth himself from the folk because of the evil of that
whereof he hath had tidings, (asking himself): Shall he keep it in
contempt, or bury it beneath the dust. Verily evil is their judgment.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.060

PICKTHAL: For those who believe not in the Hereafter is an evil similitude,
and Allah's is the Sublime Similitude. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.061

PICKTHAL: If Allah were to take mankind to task for their wrong-doing, he
would not leave hereon a living creature, but He reprieveth them to an
appointed term, and when their term cometh they cannot put (it) off an hour
nor (yet) advance (it).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.062

PICKTHAL: And they assign unto Allah that which they (themselves) dislike,
and their tongues expound the lie that the better portion will be theirs.
Assuredly theirs will be the Fire, and they will be abandoned.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.063

PICKTHAL: By Allah, We verily sent messengers unto the nations before thee,
but the devil made their deeds fairseeming unto them. So he is their patron
this day, and theirs will be a painful doom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.064

PICKTHAL: And We have revealed the Scripture unto thee only that thou mayst
explain unto them that wherein they differ, and (as) a guidance and a mercy
for a people who believe.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.065

PICKTHAL: Allah sendeth down water from the sky and therewith reviveth the
earth after her death. Lo! herein is indeed a portent for a folk who hear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.066

PICKTHAL: And lo! in the cattle there is a lesson for you. We give you to
drink of that which is in their bellies, from betwixt the refuse and the
blood, pure milk palatable to the drinkers.

you to drink of what is in their bellies-- from betwixt the feces and the
blood-- pure milk, easy and agreeable to swallow for those who drink.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.067

PICKTHAL: And of the fruits of the date-palm, and grapes, whence ye derive
strong drink and (also) good nourishment. Lo! therein is indeed a portent
for people who have sense.

SHAKIR: And of the fruits of the palms and the grapes-- you obtain from
them intoxication and goodly provision; most surely there is a sign in this
for a people who ponder.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.068

PICKTHAL: And thy Lord inspired the bee, saying: Choose thou habitations in
the hills and in the trees and in that which they thatch;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.069

PICKTHAL: Then eat of all fruits, and follow the ways of thy Lord, made
smooth (for thee). There cometh forth from their bellies a drink divers of
hues, wherein is healing for mankind. Lo! herein is indeed a portent for
people who reflect.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.070

PICKTHAL: And Allah createth you, then causeth you to die, and among you is
he who is brought back to the most abject stage of life, so that he knoweth
nothing after (having had) knowledge. Lo! Allah is Knower, Powerful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.071

PICKTHAL: And Allah hath favoured some of you above others in provision.
Now those who are more favoured will by no means hand over their provision
to those (slaves) whom their right hands possess, so that they may be equal
with them in respect thereof. Is it then the grace of Allah that they deny?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.072

PICKTHAL: And Allah hath given you wives of your own kind, and hath given
you, from your wives, sons and grandsons, and hath made provision of good
things for you. Is it then in vanity that they believe and in the grace of
Allah that they disbelieve?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.073

PICKTHAL: And they worship beside Allah that which owneth no provision
whatsoever for them from the heavens or the earth, nor have they (whom they
worship) any power.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.074

PICKTHAL: So coin not similitudes for Allah. Lo! Allah knoweth; ye know
not.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.075

PICKTHAL: Allah coineth a similitude: (on the one hand) a (mere) chattel
slave, who hath control of nothing, and (on the other hand) one on whom we
have bestowed a fair provision from Us, and he spendeth thereof secretly
and openly. Are they equal? Praise be to Allah! But most of them know not.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.076

PICKTHAL: And Allah coineth a similitude: Two men, one of them dumb, having
control of nothing, and he is a burden on his owner; whithersoever he
directeth him to go, he bringeth no good. Is he equal with one who
enjoineth justice and followeth a straight path (of conduct)?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.077

PICKTHAL: And unto Allah belongeth the Unseen of the heavens and the earth,
and the matter of the Hour (of Doom) is but as a twinkling of the eye, or
it is nearer still. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.078

PICKTHAL: And Allah brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers
knowing nothing, and gave you hearing and sight and hearts that haply ye
might give thanks.

SHAKIR: And Allah has brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers--
you did not know anything-- and He gave you hearing and sight and hearts
that you may give thanks.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.079

PICKTHAL: Have they not seen the birds obedient in mid-air? None holdeth
them save Allah. Lo! herein, verily, are portents for a people who believe.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.080

PICKTHAL: And Allah hath given you in your houses an abode, and hath given
you (also), of the hides of cattle, houses which ye find light (to carry)
on the day of migration and on the day of pitching camp; and of their wool
and their fur and their hair, caparison and comfort for a while.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.081

PICKTHAL: And Allah hath given you, of that which He hath created, shelter
from the sun; and hath given you places of refuge in the mountains, and
hath given you coats to ward off the heat from you, and coats (of armour)
to save you from your own foolhardiness. Thus doth He perfect His favour
unto you, in order that ye may surrender (unto Him).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.082

PICKTHAL: Then, if they turn away, thy duty (O Muhammad) is but plain
conveyance (of the message).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.083

PICKTHAL: They know the favour of Allah and then deny it. Most of them are
ingrates.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.084

PICKTHAL: And (bethink you of) the day when we raise up of every nation a
witness, then there is no leave for disbelievers, nor are they allowed to
make amends.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.085

PICKTHAL: And when those who did wrong behold the doom, it will not be made
light for them, nor will they be reprieved.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.086

PICKTHAL: And when those who ascribed partners to Allah behold those
partners of theirs, they will say: Our Lord! these are our partners unto
whom we used to cry instead of Thee. But they will fling to them the
saying: Lo! ye verily are liars!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.087

PICKTHAL: And they proffer unto Allah submission on that day, and all that
they used to invent hath failed them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.088

PICKTHAL: For those who disbelieve and debar (men) from the way of Allah,
We add doom to doom because they wrought corruption,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.089

PICKTHAL: And (bethink you of) the day when We raise in every nation a
witness against them of their own folk, and We bring thee (Muhammad) as a
witness against these. And We reveal the Scripture unto thee as an
exposition of all things, and a guidance and a mercy and good tidings for
those who have surrendered (to Allah).

these-- and We have revealed the Book to you explaining clearly everything,
and a guidance and mercy and good news for those who submit.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.090

PICKTHAL: Lo! Allah enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk,
and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorteth you in
order that ye may take heed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.091

PICKTHAL: Fulfil the covenant of Allah when ye have covenanted, and break
not your oaths after the asseveration of them, and after ye have made Allah
surety over you. Lo! Allah knoweth what ye do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.092

PICKTHAL: And be not like unto her who unravelleth the thread, after she
hath made it strong, to thin filaments, making your oaths a deceit between
you because of a nation being more numerous than (another) nation. Allah
only trieth you thereby, and He verily will explain to you on the Day of
Resurrection that wherein ye differed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.093

PICKTHAL: Had Allah willed He could have made you (all) one nation, but He
sendeth whom He will astray and guideth whom He will, and ye will indeed be
asked of what ye used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.094

PICKTHAL: Make not your oaths a deceit between you, lest a foot should slip
after being firmly planted and ye should taste evil forasmuch as ye
debarred (men) from the way of Allah, and yours should be an awful doom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.095

PICKTHAL: And purchase not a small gain at the price of Allah's covenant.
Lo! that which Allah hath is better for you, if ye did but know.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.096

PICKTHAL: That which ye have wasteth away, and that which Allah hath
remaineth. And verily We shall pay those who are steadfast a recompense in
proportion to the best of what they used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.097

PICKTHAL: Whosoever doeth right, whether male or female, and is a believer,
him verily we shall quicken with good life, and We shall pay them a
recompense in proportion to the best of what they used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.098

PICKTHAL: And when thou recitest the Qur'an, seek refuge in Allah from
Satan the outcast.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.099

PICKTHAL: Lo! he hath no power over those who believe and put trust in
their Lord.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.100

PICKTHAL: His power is only over those who make a friend of him, and those
who ascribe partners unto Him (Allah).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.101

PICKTHAL: And when We put a revelation in place of (another) revelation, -
and Allah knoweth best what He revealeth - they say: Lo! thou art but
inventing. Most of them know not.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.102

PICKTHAL: Say: The holy Spirit hath delivered it from thy Lord with truth,
that it may confirm (the faith of) those who believe, and as guidance and
good tidings for those who have surrendered (to Allah).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.103

PICKTHAL: And We know well that they say: Only a man teacheth him. The
speech of him at whom they falsely hint is outlandish, and this is clear
Arabic speech.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.104

PICKTHAL: Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah, Allah guideth
them not and theirs will be a painful doom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.105

PICKTHAL: Only they invent falsehood who believe not Allah's revelations,
and (only) they are the liars.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.106

PICKTHAL: Whoso disbelieveth in Allah after his belief - save him who is
forced thereto and whose heart is still content with the Faith - but whoso
findeth ease in disbelief: On them is wrath from Allah. Theirs will be an
awful doom.

opens (his) breast to disbelief-- on these is the wrath of Allah, and they
shall have a grievous chastisement.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.107

PICKTHAL: That is because they have chosen the life of the world rather
than the Hereafter, and because Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.108

PICKTHAL: Such are they whose hearts and ears and eyes Allah hath sealed.
And such are the heedless.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.109

PICKTHAL: Assuredly in the Hereafter they are the losers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.110

PICKTHAL: Then lo! thy Lord - for those who became fugitives after they had
been persecuted, and then fought and were steadfast - lo! thy Lord
afterward is (for them) indeed Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.111

PICKTHAL: On the Day when every soul will come pleading for itself, and
every soul will be repaid what it did, and they will not be wronged.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.112

PICKTHAL: Allah coineth a similitude: a township that dwelt secure and well
content, its provision coming to it in abundance from every side, but it
disbelieved in Allah's favours, so Allah made it experience the garb of
dearth and fear because of what they used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.113

PICKTHAL: And verily there had come unto them a messenger from among them,
but they had denied him, and so the torment seized them while they were
wrong-doers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.114

PICKTHAL: So eat of the lawful and good food which Allah hath provided for
you, and thank the bounty of your Lord if it is Him ye serve.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.115

PICKTHAL: He hath forbidden for you only carrion and blood and swineflesh
and that which hath been immolated in the name of any other than Allah; but
he who is driven thereto, neither craving nor transgressing, lo! then Allah
is Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.116

PICKTHAL: And speak not, concerning that which your own tongues qualify (as
clean or unclean), the falsehood: "This is lawful, and this is forbidden,"
so that ye invent a lie against Allah. Lo! those who invent a lie against
Allah will not succeed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.117

PICKTHAL: A brief enjoyment (will be theirs); and theirs a painful doom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.118

PICKTHAL: And unto those who are Jews We have forbidden that which We have
already related unto thee. And We wronged them not, but they were wont to
wrong themselves.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.119

PICKTHAL: Then lo! thy Lord - for those who do evil in ignorance and
afterward repent and amend - lo! (for them) thy Lord is afterward indeed
Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.120

PICKTHAL: Lo! Abraham was a nation obedient to Allah, by nature upright,
and he was not of the idolaters;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.121

PICKTHAL: Thankful for His bounties; He chose him and He guided him unto a
straight path.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.122

PICKTHAL: And We gave him good in the world, and in the Hereafter he is
among the righteous.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.123

PICKTHAL: And afterward We inspired thee (Muhammad, saying): Follow the
religion of Abraham, as one by nature upright. He was not of the idolaters.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.124

PICKTHAL: The Sabbath was appointed only for those who differed concerning
it, and lo! thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection
concerning that wherein they used to differ.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.125

PICKTHAL: Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation,
and reason with them in the better way. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him
who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

016.126

PICKTHAL: If ye punish, then punish with the like of that wherewith ye were
afflicted. But if ye endure patiently, verily it is better for the patient.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
