WITH ALL THIS, man [often] says, "What! Once I am dead, shall I again be brought forth alive?" (66) Does man not remember that We created him before when he was nothing? (67) So by your Lord, surely, We shall gather them together, and (also) the Shayatin (devils) (with them), then We shall bring them round Hell on their knees. (68) Then We will most certainly draw forth from every sect of them him who is most exorbitantly rebellious against the Beneficent Allah. (69) And surely We are Best Aware of those most worthy to be burned therein. (70) Not one of you but will pass over it: this is, with thy Lord, a Decree which must be accomplished. (71) And We will deliver those who guarded (against evil), and We will leave the unjust therein on their knees. (72) And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, those who disbelieve (the rich and strong among the pagans of Quraish who live a life of luxury) say to those who believe (the weak, poor companions of Prophet Muhammad SAW who have a hard life): "Which of the two groups (i.e. believers and disbelievers) is best in (point of) position and as regards station (place of council for consultation)." (73) How many generations that had far more wealth and ostentation have We laid low before them! (74) Say: "If any men go astray, (Allah) Most Gracious extends (the rope) to them, until, when they see the warning of Allah (being fulfilled) - either in punishment or in (the approach of) the Hour,- they will at length realise who is worst in position, and (who) weakest in forces! (75) And Allah increases in guidance those who go aright; and ever-abiding good works are with your Lord best in recompense and best in yielding fruit. (76) And hast thou ever considered [the kind of man] who is bent on denying the truth of Our messages and says, "I will surely be given wealth and children"? (77) Has he looked into the unseen, or has he taken from the Most Merciful a promise? (78) No, indeed! We shall assuredly write down all that he says, and We shall prolong for him the chastisement; (79) and We shall inherit from him what he says, and he shall come to Us alone. (80) They have sought honor from other gods instead of God. (81) Instead, they shall reject their worship, and become adversaries against them. (82)
