And God endows with an ever-deeper consciousness of the right way
those who seek guidance;
and good deeds, the fruits of which endure forever,
are best in the sight of your Sustainer
and yield the best return.
Strive among yourselves to attain your Sustainer’s forgiveness
and a paradise as vast as the heavens and the earth,
which has been readied for those who are conscious of God –
who spend [in His way] in times of abundance and in times of hardship,
and restrain their anger,
and pardon their fellow human beings,
because God loves those who do good;
and who, when they have committed a shameful deed
or have otherwise wronged their own souls,
remember God and pray for forgiveness for their mistakes -
for who can forgive sins but God?
And do not knowingly persist
in doing whatever [wrong] they may have done.
