And they ask you about Dhul-Qarnain. Say: "I shall recite to you something of his story." (83) We established him in the land, and We gave him a way to everything; (84) and he followed a way (85) Until when he reached the place where the sun set, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people. We said: O Zulqarnain! either give them a chastisement or do them a benefit. (86) He replied, "I shall punish the unjust ones among them and then they will return to their Lord, who will punish them more sternly". (87) And as for him who believes and does good, he shall have goodly reward, and We will speak to him an easy word of Our command. (88) Thereafter he followed a way. (89) until he reached the rising of the sun, he found it rising upon a nation for whom We provided no veil against it to shade them. (90) Thus. And We had encompassed [all] that he had in knowledge. (91) He travelled (92) until, when he reached between the two barriers, he found this side of them a people scarcely able to understand speech. (93) They said: "O Dhul-Qarnain! Verily! Ya'juj and Ma'juj (Gog and Magog) are doing great mischief in the land. Shall we then pay you a tribute in order that you might erect a barrier between us and them?" (94) He said, "That in which my Lord has established me is better [than what you offer], but assist me with strength; I will make between you and them a dam. (95) bring me blocks of iron." Then, when he had filled the gap between the mountain sides [he said], "Now blow on the fire with your bellows." When the iron blocks were red with heat, he said, "Bring me molten brass to pour on them." (96) Therefore Yajuj and Majuj were neither able to surmount it, nor could they pierce it. (97) [Dhul-Qarnayn] said, "This is a mercy from my Lord; but when the promise of my Lord comes, He will make it level, and ever is the promise of my Lord true." (98) ۞ And on that day We shall release them in groups surging like waves one after another, and the Trumpet will be blown so We shall gather them all together. (* Gog and Magog will come out during the time of Eisa (Jesus when he comes back to earth) and cause great destruction in the land.) (99) And on that Day We shall place hell, for all to see, before those who denied the truth (100) The ones whose eyes were covered from My remembrance, and who could not bear to hear Truth. (101)
