The surah that opens with the praise of God as The Originator of the heavens and the earth. It takes its name from the word "fāṭir" (orginator), which occurs in verse 1. The surah affirms God’s power and Creation and contrasts this with the powerlessness and uselessness of the "partners" set up by the idolaters. The surah warns the idolaters of their punishment and comforts the Prophet through mention of previous messengers who were also rejected as liars. The great rewards that await believers are described.
The surah is also known as Sole Originator, The Bringer into Being, The Creator

وَمَا يَسْتَوِي الْبَحْرَانِ هَٰذَا عَذْبٌ فُرَاتٌ سَائِغٌ شَرَابُهُ وَهَٰذَا مِلْحٌ أُجَاجٌ ۖ وَمِنْ كُلٍّ تَأْكُلُونَ لَحْمًا طَرِيًّا وَتَسْتَخْرِجُونَ حِلْيَةً تَلْبَسُونَهَا ۖ وَتَرَى الْفُلْكَ فِيهِ مَوَاخِرَ لِتَبْتَغُوا مِنْ فَضْلِهِ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ ﴿١٢﴾
١٢ - اور دونوں دریا (مل کر) یکساں نہیں ہوجاتے۔ یہ تو میٹھا ہے پیاس بجھانے والا۔ جس کا پانی خوشگوار ہے اور یہ کھاری ہے کڑوا۔ اور سب سے تم تازہ گوشت کھاتے ہو اور زیور نکالتے ہو جسے پہنتے ہو۔ اور تم دریا میں کشتیوں کو دیکھتے ہو کہ (پانی کو) پھاڑتی چلی آتی ہیں تاکہ تم اس کے فضل سے (معاش) تلاش کرو اور تاکہ شکر کرو .
[35:12] And not alike are the two bodies of water. One is fresh and sweet, palatable for drinking, and one is salty and bitter. And from each you eat tender meat and extract ornaments which you wear, and you see the ships plowing through [them] that you might seek of His bounty; and perhaps you will be grateful.
[Transliteration] Wa maa yastawil bahraani haaza 'azbun furaatun saaa'ighun sharaabuhoo wa haazaa milhun ujaaj, wa min kullin taakuloona lahman tariyyanw wa tastakhrijoona hilyatan talbasoonahaa wa taral fulka feehi mawaakhira litabtaghoo min fadlihee wa la'allakm tashkuroon
