All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. No understanding can fully comprehend Him. As His attributes were before creation, so will they continue forever. Every matter is easy for Him.

It is their hands which are tied and they are cursed for what they have said. Rather, His hands are outspread, spending as He wills. Allah hears your dialogue, for Allah is hearing and seeing. Nay, our messengers are with them recording. I hear and I see. Verily, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
Would you not love for Allah to forgive you? And Allah is forgiving and merciful. Do you know of anything similar to Him? To Him belongs the dominion and all praise, and He has power over all things. He has created all things and measured them with precise measurement.
If so, each god would have taken what it created and some would have surpassed others. Glory be to Allah above what they describe. Knower of the Unseen and the seen, Exalted is He above what they associate. Verily, Allah knows and you do not know. Or do you feel secure from He who is in the heavens that He might rain stones upon you?
You will soon know how was the warning! Then, He will inform them of what they did on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, Allah knows all things. And Allah is with the patient. Say: Never will you follow us. Such did Allah say before. There is none to change His words. Rather, most of them do not know. Say: It has been sent down by the Holy Spirit from your Lord in truth, to make firm those with faith and as guidance and glad tidings for the Muslims. We know that they say: Indeed, he has been taught by a man!
Yet the tongue of the one they speak of is foreign, while this is in a clear Arabic language. Whoever contemplates over the Quran, seeking guidance from it, the path of truth will be made clear to him.
Whatever the Messenger described about his Lord, Mighty and Majestic, in the authentic prophetic narrations, which were received and accepted by the people of knowledge, is obligatory to have faith in.
Who is asking Me that I might give? Who is seeking My forgiveness that I may forgive him? He looks at you continuing to despair, so He continues to laugh knowing that relief is coming soon. Until the Lord of honor places His leg and in another narration: His foot over it and some of its parts retreat from each other and it says: Enough!
Adam will say: I am here at Your pleasure. A raised voice will call out: Verily, Allah commands you to send a group of your progeny to the Hellfire. Holy is Your name, Your command is in the heavens and on the earth. As Your mercy is in the heavens, place Your mercy upon the earth. Forgive our mistakes and our sins. You are the Lord of all who are good. Send down mercy from Your mercy, healing from Your healing, upon this pain that it might pass.
He knows what you do. Rather, let him spit to his left or beneath his feet. O Allah, You are the First, there is nothing before You. You are the Last, there is nothing after You. You are the Manifest, there is nothing above You.
You are the Hidden, there is nothing beyond You. Relinquish my debts and enrich me from poverty. Rather, you are calling upon the Hearing, the Seeing.
Verily, the One you call upon is closer to you than the neck of your riding animal. You will have no difficulty seeing Him. If you are able to avoid missing a prayer before sunrise and before sunset, then do so.
And He, glory be to Him, is with them wherever they are. He knows what enters the earth and what comes out from it and what descends from the sky and what ascends therein. He is with you wherever you are, for Allah sees what you are doing. Rather, the moon is a sign among the signs of Allah even to the smallest of His creatures.
All of this discourse, which Allah mentioned, such that He is above the Throne and that He is with us, is true in its reality. This is false according to the consensus of the people of knowledge and faith.
He keeps the heavens and the earth from passing away and He keeps the heavens from falling to the earth. Among His signs are that the heavens and the earth are sustained by His command. For He, glory be to Him, is not like anything else in all of His qualities. He is exalted in His proximity and near in His transcendence. It originated from Him and to Him it will return. And that Allah speaking it is reality, and that this Quran which was revealed to Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is the word of Allah in reality, not the speech of anyone else.
The speech of Allah is not letters without meaning, nor meaning without letters. Just as they see the full moon at night, they will have no difficulty in seeing Him.
They will see Him, glory be to Him, while in the courts of the Resurrection, and they will see Him after they have entered Paradise, as Allah the Exalted wills. As for the trial, people will be interrogated in their graves.
What is your religion? Who is your prophet? I do not know! I heard people saying something so I said it! It will be heard by everything except human beings, for if they heard it, they would faint. People will rise from their graves in front of their Lord barefoot, naked, and uncircumcised. The sun will draw near to them and sweat will pour over them. One will take his book in his right hand and another will take his book in his left hand or from behind his back.
It will be said : Read your book! Sufficient is your soul today to take you to account! He will meet privately with His faithful servant and confess his sins, as is described in the Book and the Sunnah. As for the unbelievers, they will not be held to account in the same way as one whose good and evil deeds are balanced, for they have no good deeds at all. Rather, their evil deeds deeds will be counted and calculated, such that they stand over them and confess to them.
Its drinking vessels are as numerous as the stars, the length and width of a month of travel. Whoever drinks from it will never be thirsty again. It is a bridge between Paradise and Hellfire. People will pass over it according to the measure of their deeds. Among them are those who will pass in the blink of an eye, and among them are those who pass like a flash of lightning. Among them are those who pass like the wind, and among them are those who pass like a valiant steed. Among them are those who are caught and thrown into Hell.
For over the bridge are hooks to catch people according to their deeds. Whoever passes over the narrow path will enter Paradise.
When they have traversed it, they will stop over an arch between Paradise and Hellfire where they will settle any disputes between each other. When they are polished and cleansed, they will be given permission to enter Paradise. As for the first intercession, he will intercede on behalf of those held behind until matters are settled between them, after the prophets Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus the son of Mary have passed on the intercession and it is left to him.
These two intercessions are specific to him. This intercession is for him and the rest of the prophets, the truthful, and others. He will intercede for those who deserve Hellfire, that they would not enter it.
He will intercede for those who have entered it to be taken out of it, and Allah will take people out of Hellfire without any intercession at all. Rather, it is only due to His grace and His mercy. There will remain space in Paradise unoccupied by those who entered it from the people of this world, so Allah will produce more people and they will enter Paradise. The details are mentioned in the revealed books from heaven, the traces of knowledge left behind by the prophets, and in the knowledge inherited from Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, which is satisfactory and sufficient.
