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

which We shall grant to those
who do not desire to domineer in the earth
nor to cause corruption,
and the outcome will be in favour of the Godwary.
84 Whoever brings virtue
shall receive [a reward] better than it,
but whoever brings vice
— those who commit misdeeds shall not be requited
except for what they used to do.
85 Indeed He who has revealed to you the Qur’ān 1
will surely restore you to the place of return.
Say, ‘My Lord knows best him who brings guidance
and him who is in manifest error.’
86 You did not expect
that the Book would be delivered to you;
but it was a mercy from your Lord.
So do not be ever an advocate of the faithless.
87 Do not ever let them bar you from Allah’s signs
after they have been sent down to you.
Invite to your Lord,
and never be one of the polytheists.
88 And do not invoke another god besides Allah;
there is no god except Him.
Everything is to perish except His Face.
All judgement belongs to Him,
and to Him you will be brought back.

1 Or ‘charged you with the Qur’ān.’
