39b. Az-Zumar (51 to 75)
But the evils that they earned smote them ; and such of
these as do wrong , the evils that they earn will smite …
But the evils that they earned smote them ; and such of these as do wrong , the evils that they earn will smite them ; they cannot escape .
Know they not that Allah enlargeth providence for whom He will , and straiteneth it ( for whom He will ) . Lo! herein verily are portents for people who believe .
Say : My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah , Who forgiveth all sins . Lo! He is the Forgiving , the Merciful .
Turn unto Him repentant , and surrender unto Him , before there come unto you the doom , when ye cannot be helped .
And follow the better ( guidance ) of that which is revealed unto you from your Lord , before the doom cometh on you suddenly when ye know not ,
Lest any soul should say Alas , my grief that I was unmindful of Allah , and I was indeed among the scoffers!
Or should say : if Allah had but guided me I should have been among the dutiful!
Or should say , when it seeth the doom : Oh , that I had but a second chance that I might be among the righteous!
( But now the answer will be ) : Nay , for My revelations came unto thee , but thou didst deny them and wast scornful and wast among the disbelievers .
And on the Day of Resurrection thou ( Muhammad ) seest those who lied concerning Allah with their faces blackened . Is not the home of the scorners in hell?
And Allah delivereth those who ward off ( evil ) because of their deserts . Evil toucheth them not , nor do they grieve .
Allah is Creator of all things , and He is Guardian over all things .
His are the keys of the heavens and the earth , and they who disbelieve the revelations of Allah such are they who are the losers .
Say ( O Muhammad , to the disbelievers ) : Do ye bid me serve other than Allah? O ye fools!
And verily it hath been revealed unto thee as unto those before thee ( saying ) : If thou ascribe a partner to Allah thy work will fail and thou indeed wilt be among the losers .
Nay , but Allah must thou serve , and be among the thankful!
And they esteem not Allah as He hath the right to be esteemed , when the whole earth is His handful on the Day of Resurrection , and the heavens are rolled in His right hand . Glorified is He and High Exalted from all that they ascribe as partner ( unto Him ) .
And the trumpet is blown , and all who are in the heavens and the earth swoon away , save him whom Allah willeth . Then it is blown a second time , and behold them standing waiting!
And the earth shineth with the light of her Lord , and the Book is set up , and the Prophets and the witnesses are brought , and it is judged between them with truth , and they are not wronged .
And each soul is paid in full for what it did . And He is best aware of what they do .
And those who disbelieve are driven unto hell in troops till , when they reach it and the gates thereof are opened , and the warders thereof say unto them : Came there not unto you messenger ' s of your own , reciting unto you the revelations of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this your Day? they say Yea , verily . But the word of doom for disbelievers is fulfilled .
It is said ( unto them ) : Enter ye the gates of hell to dwell therein . Thus hapless is the journey ' s end of the scorners .
And those who keep their duty to their Lord are driven unto the Garden in troops till , when they reach it , and the gates thereof are opened , and the warders thereof say unto them : Peace be unto you! Ye are good , so enter ye ( the Garden of delight ) , to dwell therein ;
They say : Praise be to Allah , Who hath fulfilled His promise unto us and hath made us inherit the land , sojourning in the Garden where we will! So bounteous is the wage of workers .
And thou ( O Muhammad ) seest the angels thronging round the Throne , hymning the praises of their Lord . And they are judged aright . And it is said : Praise be to Allah , the Lord of the Worlds!
