And do not think Allah to be heedless of what the unjust do; He only respites them to a day on which the eyes shall be fixedly open, (42) when they shall keep pressing ahead in haste, their heads lifted up, their gaze directed forward, unable to look away from what they behold, their hearts utterly void. (43) And warn the people of a day when the punishment will come upon them, therefore the unjust will say, “O our Lord! Give us respite for a little while for us to obey Your call and follow the Noble Messengers”; (It will be said) “So had you not sworn before that, ‘We have not to move to any place else from the earth’?” (44) And yet, you dwelt in the dwelling-places of those who had sinned against their own selves [before your time,] and it was made obvious to you how We had dealt with them: for We have set forth unto you many a parable [of sin, resurrection and divine retribution]." (45) And of a surety they plotted their plot, and with Allah was their plot, though their plot was such as to remove thereby mountains. (46) You must not even think that God will disregard His promise to His messengers. God is Majestic and Revengeful. (47) On the Day when the earth is changed into other than the earth and the heavens, all shall come before Allah, the One, the Conqueror. (48) You will see the wicked on that day bound together in chains. (49) Their trousers shall be of pitch, and the Fire shall cover their faces. (50) That Allah may requite each person according to what he has earned. Truly, Allah is Swift at reckoning. (51) This is a proclamation for all mankind that they may be warned by it, and that they may know that their God is none but the One True God, and that men of understanding may take heed. (52)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
