Beginning is with Allah's personal name Ar'Reh'maan Who is The Fountain of Infinite Mercy.

And there is a person amongst the people whose words/thoughts about worldly life seem exotic/ astounding/strange/unaccustomed to you and he keeps swearing upon Allah on that which he has in his heart/mind, and he is obsessively compulsive/excessively argumentative. [2:204]

And when he leaves, he attempts in the society [with argumentative skill] so that he may create disorder/ imbalance/distortions/spread wicked, unsound ideas therein and so that he may divide and rift the people apart/cause ruin to the family and the progeny. And be mindful that Allah does not appreciate/approve the creation of distortions/imbalances/disequilibrium. [2:205]

   And when it is said for [to] him , "You be mindful and apprehensive of Allah in reverence and fear", the pride/stubbornness/elitism seized and puffed him with negative dilapidating retardant import. Therefore the appropriate place for such a person is the Hell-Prison, and remember it is certainly a very bad dwelling. [2:206]

 And a person is there amongst the people who keeps devoting/sacrificing his self/person in vigorous attempt and pursuit only for obtaining the approval/appreciation of Allah. And be sure that Allah is Gracious/ Protector/Shield/Gentle with/for His allegiants. [2:207]

O those/you who consciously proclaim to have accepted/become believers, listen: "you people enter into Islam completely/all collectively follow in letter and spirit the Practical Part/obligation of Believing [i.e. Islam].


And remember that you people should not follow/walk on the footsteps/path of Shaitaan. It is a fact that he is for you people an openly declared enemy". [2:208]

Therefore, if you people slip [away from the prescribed and defined path] after that which has since been brought to you by the distinctively distinguishing verbal passages [Aay'aat showing the way of Muslims and opposite path of the Muejremeen], then the consequence you people must know/remember that Allah is the All Pervasive/Dominant and eternally The Wise/Knower of invisible/secreted/infolded. [2:209]

Are they waiting [to believe/believers to follow Islam wholeheartedly] for no reason except that Allah may come personally to them and retinue of the Angles [instead of distinctive verbal passages/communications] in the canopies of clouds and the matter is finalized.

And be mindful that all matters are returned/presented for settling/decision-disposal by Allah. [ 2:210]

[Those who need some physical unexplainable signs to be shown, they should] Ask the Posterity of Ies'ra'eel as to how many were they given from distinctly visible/demonstrative signs? [what affect they people got?]

And who ever would substitute the beneficence of Allah after having reached him,  thereat/for this reason/in consequence, indeed Allah is severe in awarding punishment/takes the matter to its logical conclusion. [ 2:211]

The worldly life has become charming, alluring and absorbing  [as against the permanent life in hereafter 14:03;16:107;79:38;87:16] for those who have deliberately refused to accept. And they keep ridiculing some from amongst those who have heartily accepted/believed [they will regret this habit one day-39:56].

 And those who consciously remained mindful and heedful avoiding unrestrained conduct in reverence and fear will be enjoying an elevated position over and above them on the Day of Resurrection. And mind it [worldly gain is no criteria of distinction] Allah gives worldly sustenance, to whomever He wishes, without measure/account/cause and effect relationship. [ 2:212]
