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

We would have sent a warner to every town.
52 So do not obey the faithless,
but wage against them a great jihād with it.1

53 It is He who merged the two seas:
this one sweet and agreeable,
and that one briny and bitter,
and between the two He set a barrier
and a forbidding hindrance.
54 It is He who created the human being from water,
then invested him with ties of blood and marriage,
and your Lord is all-powerful.
55 They worship besides Allah
that which neither brings them any benefit
nor causes them any harm,
and the faithless one is ever an abettor against his Lord.
56 We did not send you
except as a bearer of good news and as a warner.

57 Say, ‘I do not ask you any reward for it,
except that anyone who wishes should take
the way to his Lord.’
58 Put your trust in the Living One
who does not die,
and celebrate His praise.
He suffices as one all-aware of the sins of His servants.
59 He, who created the heavens and the earth
and whatever is between them
in six days,

1 That is, with the help of the Qur’ān.
