Difficulty: 0

Who is more unjust than one who invents a lie against Allah or rejects His Ayat?

For such their appointed portion will reach them from the Book (of Decrees)

until Our messengers (the angel of death and his assistants) come to them to take their souls,

they (the angels) will say: "Where are those whom you used to invoke and worship besides Allah,''

they will reply, "They have vanished and deserted us.''

And they will bear witness against themselves, that they were disbelievers.

(Allah) will say: "Enter you in the company of nations who passed away before you, of men and Jinn, into the Fire.''

Every time a new nation enters, it curses its sister nation (that went before) until they are all together in the Fire.

The last of them will say to the first of them: "Our Lord! These misled us, so give them a double torment of the Fire.''

He will say: "For each one there is double (torment), but you know not.''

The first of them will say to the last of them: "You were not better than us, so taste the torment for what you used to earn.''

Verily, those who belie Our Ayat and treat them with arrogance, for them the gates of the heavens will not be opened,

and they will not enter Paradise until the camel goes through the eye of the needle.

Thus do We recompense the criminals.

Theirs will be Mihad from the Fire, and over them Ghawash. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers.

But those who believed, and worked righteousness -- We burden not any person beyond his scope -

- such are the dwellers of Paradise. They will abide therein.

And We shall remove from their breasts any Ghill; rivers flowing under them, and they will say:

"All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has guided us to this, and never could we have found guidance,

were it not that Allah had guided us! Indeed, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth.''

And it will be cried out to them: "This is the Paradise which you have inherited for what you used to do.''

And the dwellers of Paradise will call out to the dwellers of the Fire (saying):

"We have indeed found true what our Lord had promised us; have you also found true what your Lord promised (warned)''

They shall say: "Yes.'' Then a crier will proclaim between them: "The curse of Allah is on the wrongdoers.''

Those who hindered (men) from the path of Allah, and would seek to make it crooked, and they were disbelievers in the Hereafter.

And between them will be a (barrier) screen and on Al-A`raf will be men, who would recognize all, by their marks.

And they will call out to the dwellers of Paradise,

"Peace be on you'' and at that time they will not yet have entered it (Paradise), but they will hope to enter (it).

And when their eyes will be turned towards the dwellers of the Fire, they will say:

"Our Lord! Place us not with the people who are wrongdoers."

And the men on Al-A`raf will call unto the men whom they would recognize by their marks,

saying: "Of what benefit to you was your gathering, and your arrogance"

"Are they those, of whom you swore that Allah would never show them mercy (Behold! It has been said to them):

`Enter Paradise, no fear shall be on you, nor shall you grieve.' "

And the dwellers of the Fire will call to the dwellers of Paradise:

"Pour on us some water or anything that Allah has provided you with."

They will say: "Both (water and provision) Allah has forbidden for the disbelievers.

"Who took their religion as amusement and play, and the life of the world deceived them.''

So this Day We shall forget them as they forgot their meeting of this Day, and as they used to reject Our Ayat.

Certainly, We have brought to them a Book (the Qur'an) which We have explained in detail with knowledge,

a guidance and a mercy to a people who believe.

Await they just for the final fulfillment of the event? On the Day the event is finally fulfilled,

those who neglected it before will say: "Verily, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth,

"now are there any intercessors for us that they might intercede on our behalf?

"Or could we be sent back (to the first life of the world) so that we might do (good) deeds other than those (evil) deeds which we used to do?"

Verily, they have lost themselves and that which they used to fabricate has gone away from them.

Indeed, your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in Six Days, and then He Istawa the Throne.

He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly, and (He created) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His command.

Surely, His is the creation and commandment. Blessed is Allah, the Lord of all that exists!

Invoke your Lord Tadarru`an and Khufyah. He likes not the aggressors.

And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, and invoke Him with fear and hope.

Surely, Allah's mercy is (ever) near unto the good-doers.

And it is He Who sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings, going before His mercy (rain).

Till when they have carried a heavy-laden cloud, We drive it to a land that is dead,

then We cause water (rain) to descend thereon. Then We produce every kind of fruit therewith.

Similarly, We shall raise up the dead, so that you may remember or take heed.

The vegetation of a good land comes forth (easily) by the permission of its Lord;

and that which is bad, brings forth nothing but (a little) with difficulty.

Thus do We explain variously the Ayat for a people who give thanks.

Indeed, We sent Nuh to his people and he said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other god but Him.

"Certainly, I fear for you the torment of a Great Day!"

The leaders of his people said: "Verily, we see you in plain error.''

[Nuh] said: "O my people! There is no error in me, but I am a Messenger from the Lord of all that exists!

"I convey unto you the Messages of my Lord and give sincere advice to you. And I know from Allah what you know not.

"Do you wonder that there has come to you a Reminder from your Lord through a man from among you,

"that he may warn you, so that you may fear Allah and that you may receive (His) mercy"

But they belied him, so We saved him and those along with him in the Fulk, and We drowned those who belied Our Ayat.

They were indeed a blind people.
