And there is, too, among men many a one who worships God on the border-line [of faith]: thus, if good befalls him, he is satisfied with Him; but if a trial assails him, he turns away utterly, losing [thereby both] this world and the life to come: [and] this, indeed, is a loss beyond compare! (11) He calls, apart from God, upon that which hurts him not, and which neither profits him anything; that is indeed the far error. (12) he calls on that which would sooner harm than help. Such a patron is indeed evil and such a companion is indeed evil. (13) God will admit those who believe and do the right to gardens full of rippling streams. Verily God does as He pleases. (14) He who thinks that God will not help him in this world and the next should stretch a rope to the sky then cut it off and see if his mind is relieved (of doubts) by this stratagem. (15) As such We have sent it in clear verses. Indeed, Allah gives guidance to whom He will. (16) Surely they that believe, and those of Jewry, the Sabaeans, the Christians, the Magians and the idolaters -- God shall distinguish between them on the Day of Resurrection; assuredly God is witness over everything. (17) Have you not considered that those in the heavens and the earth, the Sun, the Moon, the Stars, the mountains, the trees, the animals, and many people, all bow down to God? But many people deserve His torment. No one can give honor to whomever God has insulted. God has all the power to do what He wants. ۩ (18) ۞ These twain are opponents who contended respecting their Lord; then as for those who disbelieved, cut out for them shall be raiments of fire: poured out over their head shall be hot water. (19) With which will melt what is in their bellies, and their skins. (20) And for them are rods of iron. (21) Whenever they will desire to go forth from it, from grief, they shall be turned back into it, and taste the chastisement of burning. (22)
