By that which scatters by broadcast
And those who lift and bear heavy weights
And those who flow with ease and gentleness
And those who distribute influence
Indeed that which you are promised is true
And indeed judgment and justice must come to pass
By the universe with its numerous paths
Indeed you are in a doctrine differing
Through which are deluded those who would be deluded
Cursed are the liars
Those who flounder heedlessly in a flood of confusion
They ask, “When is the Day of Accountability and Justice?
A day when they will be tried over the fire
“Taste your trial. This is what you used to ask to be hastened.
As for the righteous, they will be in the presence of gardens and springs
Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because before then, they lived a good life
They were in the habit of sleeping only a little at night
And in the hours of early dawn, were found praying for forgiveness
And with their wealth and possessions, remembered the rights of those who asked, and those who were prevented from asking
On the earth are signs for those of assured faith
And in your own selves. Then will you not see
And in heaven is your sustenance, as you were promised
Then by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very truth, as much as the fact that you can communicate intelligible to each other
Has the story reached you of the honored guests of Abraham
Behold, they entered his presence and said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace.” And thought, “These seem unusual.
Then he turned quickly to his household, and brought out a fattened calf
And placed it before them. He said, “Will you not eat?
Then he conceived a fear of them. They said, “Fear not.” And they gave him good news of a son endowed with knowledge
But his wife came forward laughing aloud. She held her forehead and said, “A barren old woman.
They said, “Even so, your Lord has spoken, and He is Full of Wisdom and Knowledge.” 30 (End of Part 26
He said, “And what, O messengers, is your mission?
They said, “We have been sent to a people in sin
“And to bring on stones of clay
“Marked by your Lord, for those who trespass beyond bounds.
Then We saved those believers who were there
But We did not find there any just muslim, except in one house
And We left there a sign for those who fear the terrible penalty
And in Moses was another sign. Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
But Pharaoh turned back with his advisors and said, “A liar, or one possessed.
So We led him and his forces, and cast them into the sea, and the blame was his
And the ‘Ad was another sign. Behold, We sent against them the devastating wind
It left nothing that it came up against. It reduced it to ruin
And the Thamud was another sign. Behold, they were told, “Enjoy yourselves for a little while.
But they rebelled against the command of their Lord. So the stunning noise seized them, even while they looked on
Then they could not stand, nor could they help themselves
So were the people of Noah before them, for they wickedly transgressed
With power and skill did We construct the firmament, for it is We Who create the vastness of space
And We have spread out the earth. How excellently do We spread it out
And of everything We have created pairs, that you may receive instruction
Then hasten to God. I am from Him a warner to you, clear and open
And do not make an object of worship with God. I am from Him a warner to you, clear and open
Similarly, no messenger came to the peoples before them, except that they said of him in like manner, “A deceiver, or one possessed.
Is this the legacy they have transmitted one to another? No, they are a people transgressing beyond bounds
So turn away from them. There will be no blame on you
But teach, for teaching benefits the believers
I only created jinn and humans so that they may worship Me
No sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they feed Me
For God is He Who gives all sustenance. He is Lord, powerful, and steadfast forever
For the wrongdoers, their portion is like the portion of their people of earlier generations. So do not let them ask Me to hasten that portion
Woe then to the unbelievers on account of their day. The day promised to them
