Has there come upon man a period of time when he was nothing to be mentioned?
By those who snatch violently.
Indeed, We created man from a mingled sperm drop to try him, and We made him hearing and seeing.
By those who remove gently.
Indeed, We have guided him to the way, be he thankful or a staunch denier.

Indeed, We have prepared for the deniers chains and yokes and a blaze.
and by those who race swiftly,
and by those who regulate matters—

And they are served in it with a cup whose flavor is a mixture of ginger,
“Go to Pharaoh—indeed, he has exceeded all limits—
a spring therein named Salsabeel.

“Indeed, this is a repayment for youpl

So wait patiently for the judgment of yoursg
Lord, and do not obey any sinner or any staunch denier among them.
He said, “I am yourpl
