And We sent Moses with Our signs, and a manifest authority, (96) Unto Firawn and his chiefs. But they followed the commandment of Fir'awn, and the commandment of Fir'awn was not right-minded. (97) On the Day of Judgment he will lead his people down into the hell fire. His leadership is evil and terrible is the place to which he leads! (98) And they are followed by a curse in this (life) and on the Day of Judgment: and woeful is the gift which shall be given (unto them)! (99) That is from the stories of the cities which We recount unto thee: of them some are standing and some mown down. (100) We did not wrong them, rather, they wronged themselves. Their gods that they called upon, other than Allah, did not help them when your Lord's command came; they did not increase them except in their destruction. (101) And similar is the seizure of your Lord when He seizes the townships upon their injustice; indeed His seizure is painful, severe. (102) Surely in that is a sign for him who fears the chastisement in the world to come; that is a day mankind are to be gathered to, a day to witness, (103) And We defer it only to a term already reckoned. (104) The day it comes no soul will dare say a word but by His leave; and some will be wretched, some will be blessed. (105) As for those who were [destined to be] wretched, they will be in the Fire. For them therein is [violent] exhaling and inhaling. (106) They will dwell therein for all the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth: for thy Lord is the (sure) accomplisher of what He planneth. (107) ۞ And as for those who were [destined to be] prosperous, they will be in Paradise, abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what your Lord should will - a bestowal uninterrupted. (108) [O Prophet!] Have no doubt about what they worship. For they worship what their fathers worshipped before. And (yet) We shall grant them their due portion in full, diminishing of it nothing.
