75. Allah sets forth the Parable (of two men: one) a slave under the dominion of another;

He has no power of any sort; and (the other) a man on whom We have bestowed goodly

favours from Ourselves, and he spends thereof (freely), privately and publicly: are the

two equal? (By no means;) praise be to Allah. But most of them understand not.

76. Wadaraba Allahu mathalan rajulayni ahaduhuma abkamu la yaqdiru AAala shay-in

wahuwa kallun AAala mawlahu aynama yuwajjihhu la ya/ti bikhayrin hal yastawee huwa

waman ya/muru bi


lAAadli wahuwa AAala siratin mustaqeem


76. Allah sets forth (another) Parable of two men: one of them dumb, with no power of

any sort; a wearisome burden is he to his master; whichever way be directs him, he brings

no good: is such a man equal with one who commands Justice, and is on a Straight Way?

Section 11 (77-83)

77. Walillahi ghaybu a

77. To Allah belongeth the Mystery of the heavens and the earth. And the Decision of the

Hour (of Judgment) is as the twingkling of an eye, or even quicker: for Allah hath power

over all things.
