Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

23 Indeed Allah will admit those who have faith
and do righteous deeds
into gardens with streams running in them,
adorned therein with bracelets
of gold and pearl,
and their dress therein will be silk.
24 They shall be guided to the purest speech,
and guided to the path of the All-laudable.
25 Indeed those who are faithless
and who bar from the way of Allah
and the Sacred Mosque,
which We have assigned for all the people,
the native and the visitor being equal therein
— whoever seeks to commit therein sacrilege
with the intent of wrongdoing,
We shall make him taste a painful punishment.

26 When We settled for Abraham the site of the House
[saying], Do not ascribe any partners to Me,
and purify My House for those who go around it,
and those who stand [in it for prayer],
and those who bow and prostrate.
27 And proclaim the ḥajj to people:
they shall come to you on foot
and on lean camels
coming from distant places,
28 that they may witness the benefits for them,
and mention Allah’s Name
during the known days
over the livestock He has provided them.
