And We did certainly send Moses with Our signs and a clear authority (96) Towards Firaun and his court members, thereupon they followed the commands of Firaun; and the work of Firaun was not proper. (97) He will precede his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the Fire; and wretched is the place to which they are led. (98) And they were followed in this [world] with a curse and on the Day of Resurrection. And wretched is the gift which is given. (99) That is an account of some towns which We recount to you. Of them some are still standing and some have been 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 such is thy Sustainer's punishing grasp whenever He takes to task any community that is given to evildoing: verily, His punishing grasp is grievous, severe! (102) Lo! herein verily there is a portent for those who fear the doom of the Hereafter. That is a day unto which mankind will be gathered, and that is a day that will be witnessed. (103) We are deferring it only for a time ordained. (104) On the Day of Judgment no one will speak without the permission of God. Some will be condemned and others 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) Abiders they shall be therein, so long as the heavens and the earth remain, save as thy Lord may will. Verily thy Lord is the Doer of whatsoever He intendeth. (107) ۞ And as for the happy, they shall be in Paradise, therein dwelling forever, so long as the heavens and earth abide, save as thy Lord will -- for a gift unbroken. (108) Have no doubt as to what they worship. They worship nothing but what their fathers worshipped before [them]. We shall certainly give them their share in full, without diminishing anything. (109)
