A questioner asked about the punishment to fall.
For the infidels, there will be no defender for it.
(It will be) from Allah, Possessor of the ways of ascent.
The angels and the spirit ascend to Him, in a day (period), the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
So be patient with the patience that is good.
They certainly see it far,
while We see it near.
The day when the sky will become like molten brass
and the mountains will be like coloured wool
and (even) an intimate friend will not inquire from another intimate friend
(though) they will be made to see each other. The criminal would love to ransom himself from the punishment of that day by (sacrificing even) his sons,
and his wife and his brother
and his family which gave him shelter,
and whosoever is in the earth, all, (and) then save himself.
By no means ! it is certainly a flaming fire
taking off the skin.
It will invite him who turned back (from the truth) and went away
and amassed (wealth) then withheld (it).
Man is certainly hasty (by) character;
when evil afflicts him he is impatient
and when good (even) touches him (he) is niggardly
except the worshippers (those who offer salat)
who are constant at their worship (salat)
and in whose wealth there is a known (portion as the) right
of one who asks and of one who is deprived (yet does not ask);
and those who accept the truth of the day of judgment
and those who are fearful of the punishment of their Fosterer,
the punishment of their Fosterer is certainly (something from which) one should not feel secure;
and those who guard their private parts
except from their wives or whom their right hands possess, so in their case they are not to be blamed,
but whoever seeks (something) beyond that, then those are the persons who are transgressors;
and those who are faithful to their trusts and their agreements;
and those who stand firm on their testimonies;
and those who are custodians of their worship (salat).
They will be honoured in gardens.
So what is the matter with those who do not believe that they rush towards you
from your right and from your left, in groups?
Does every man among them hope that he will be made to enter the garden of bliss?
By no means ! they know (the thing) from which We created them.
So I do swear by the Fosterer of the rising places/times and setting places/times (of the sun), that We are certainly able
to replace (them by others) better than them and We are not to be overcome.
So leave them involved in idle talk and play, till they meet their day which they are promised.
The day they will come out from their graves in haste, as if rushing towards a goal,
(with) their eyes humbled, disgrace covering them, that is the day which they were promised.
