007.048 The men on the heights will call to certain men whom they will know from their marks, saying:"Of what profit to you were your hoards and your arrogant ways?
007.049 "Behold! are these not the men whom you swore that God with His Mercy would never bless? Enter ye the Garden: nofear shall be on you, nor shall ye grieve."
007.050 The Companions of the Firewill call to the Companions of the Garden: "Pour down to us water or anything that God doth provide for your sustenance." They will say: "Both these things hath God forbidden to those who rejected Him."
007.051 "Such as took their religion to be mere amusement and play, and were deceived by the life of the world." That day shall We forget them as they forgot the meeting of this day of theirs, and as they were wont to reject Our Signs.
007.052 For We had certainly sent unto them a Book, based onknowledge, which We explained in detail-- a guide and a mercy to all who believe.
007.053 Do they just wait for the final fulfilment of the event? On the day the event is finally fulfilled,those who disregardedit before will say: "The messengerss of our Lord did indeed bring true (tidings). Have weno intercessors now tointercede on our behalf? Or could we be sent back? then shouldwe behave differently from our behaviour in the past." In fact they will have lost their souls, and the things they invented will leave them in the lurch. 007.054 Your Guardian-Lord is God, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then He established Himself on the Throne (of authority): He draweththe night as a veil o'er the day, each seeking the other in rapid succession: He created the sun, the moon, andthe stars, (all) governed by laws under His command. Is it not His to create andto govern? Blessed be God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds!
007.055 Call on your Lord with humility and in private: for God loveth not those who trespass beyond bounds.
007.056 Do no mischiefon the earth, after it hath been set in order, but call on Him with fear and longing (in your hearts): for the Mercy of God is (always) near to thosewho do good.
007.057 It is He Who sendeth the winds like heralds of glad tidings, going before His mercy:when they have carried the heavy-ladenclouds, We drive them to a land that is dead, make rain to descend thereon, and produce every kind of harvest therewith: thus shall We raise up the dead: perchance ye may remember. 007.058 From the land that is clean and good, by the will of its Cherisher, springs up produce, (rich) after itskind: but from the land that is bad, springs up nothing but that whichis niggardly: thus do we explain the Signs by various (symbols) to those who are grateful.
007.059 We sent Noah to his people. He said:"O my people! worship God! ye have no other god but Him. I fear for you the punishment ofa dreadful day!
007.060 The leaders ofhis people said: "Ah! we see thee evidently wandering (in mind)."
007.061 He said: "O my people! No wandering is there in my (mind): on the contrary I am a messenger from the Lord and Cherisher of the worlds!
007.062 "I but fulfil towards you the duties of my Lord's mission: Sincere is my advice to you, and I know from God something that ye know not.
007.063 "Do ye wonderthat there hath come to you a message from your Lord, through a man of your own people, to warn you-- so that ye may fear God and haply receive His Mercy?"
007.064 But they rejected him, and We delivered him, and those with him, in the Ark: but We overwhelmed in the flood those who rejected Our Signs. They were indeed a blind people!
007.065 To the 'Ad people, (We sent) Hud, one of their (own) brethren: He said: O mypeople! worship God! ye have no other god but Him will ye not fear (God)?"
007.066 The leaders ofthe Unbelievers amonghis people said: "Ah! we see thou art an imbecile!" and "We think thou art a liar!"
