Což jsi neviděl, že před Bohem padají na zem ti, kdož na nebesích jsou i na zemi, a také slunce a měsíc, hvězdy a hory, stromy a zvířata a mnoho lidí? Však nad mnohými z nich se trest uskuteční, neboť kým Bůh opovrhl, tomu nebudou pocty prokazovány. A Bůh věru učiní vše, co chce.
Have you not seen, [have you not] realised, that to God prostrate whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth, together with the sun and the moon, and the stars and the mountains, and the trees and the animals, that is, how they are submissive to Him in what He wills of them, as well as many of mankind?, namely, the believers, [who prostrate to Him] in addition to their submissiveness [to Him] when prostrating in prayer. And for many the chastisement has become due, and these are the disbelievers, for they refuse to prostrate, [an action] which is contingent on belief. And he whom God abases, [he whom] He makes unprosperous, there is none to give him honour, [none] to make him fortunate. Indeed God does whatever He will, in the way of abasing or giving honour.
