23 - Al-Muminun (The Believers) - المؤمنون

So when the trumpet is blown, there shall be no ties of relationship between them on that day, nor shall they ask of each other.

Then as for him whose good deeds are preponderant, these are the successful.

And as for him whose good deeds are light, these are they who shall have lost their souls, abiding in hell

The fire shall scorch their faces, and they therein shall be in severe affliction.

Were not My communications recited to you? But you used to reject them.

They shall say: O our Lord! our adversity overcame us and we were an erring people:

O our Lord! Take us out of it; then if we return (to evil) surely we shall be unjust.

He shall say: Go away into it and speak nat to Me;

Surely there was a party of My servants who said: O OUI . Lord! we believe, so do Thou forgive us and have mercy on us, and Thou art the best of the Merciful ones.

But you took them for a mockery until they made you forget My remembrance and you used to laugh at them.

Surely I have rewarded them this day because they were patient, that they are the achievers.

He will say: How many years did you tarry in the earth?

They will say: We tarried a day or part of a day, but ask those who keep account.

He will say: You did tarry but a little-- had you but known (it):

What! did you then think that We had created you in vain and that you shall not be returned to Us?

So exalted be Allah, the True King; no god is there but He, the Lord of the honorable dominion.

And whoever invokes with Allah another god-- he has no proof of this-- his reckoning is only with his Lord; surely the unbelievers shall not be successful.

And say: O my Lord! forgive and have mercy, and Thou art the best of the Merciful ones.
