Juz 15
And man prays for evil like the way he seeks goodness; and man is very hasty. (11) And We appoint the night and the day two portents. Then We make dark the portent of the night, and We make the portent of the day sight-giving, that ye may seek bounty from your Lord, and that ye may know the computation of the years, and the reckoning; and everything have We expounded with a clear expounding. (12) Round each man's neck We have hung his ledger of deeds, and on the Day of Resurrection will present it as a book spread out (and say): (13) (And it will be said unto him): Read thy Book. Thy soul sufficeth as reckoner against thee this day. (14) Whosoever is guided is only guided for his own self, and whosoever goes astray it is only against it. No soul shall bear another's burden. Nor do We punish until we have sent a Messenger. (15) When We decide to destroy a town We command the affluent among them, whereupon they commit sins in it, then the decree (of chastisement) becomes due against them and thereafter We destroy that town utterly. (16) And many a generation We did destroy after Nooh! And Allah is Sufficient, Aware of the sins of His bondmen, the Beholder. (17) Whoever desires this fleeting one, We may give him quickly whatever We will, to whomever We will; and then assign hell for him; for him to enter it condemned, pushed around. (18) Whosoever, being a believer, desires the Everlasting Life and strives for it as he should; those their striving will be thanked. (19) We help these and those, a gift from your Lord; and your Lord's gift is not restricted. (20) See how We have bestowed more on some than on others; but verily the Hereafter is more in rank and gradation and more in excellence. (21) O listener, do not set up another God with Allah, for you will then remain seated condemned, helpless. (22)
