Couldst thou but see when the culprits shall hang their heads before their Lord, saying: our Lord! we have now seen and heard; so send us back; we shall work righteously, verily we are convinced. (12) Had We wanted, We could have given guidance to every soul, but My decree, that hell will be filled-up with jinn and people, has already been executed. (13) So taste the chastisement on account of your forgetting the encounter of this Day. We, too, have forgotten you. Taste the eternal chastisement as a requital for your misdeeds.” (14) Only those believe in Our revelations who, when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate and hymn the praise of their Lord, and they are not scornful, ۩ (15) Their backs do not rest on their beds, and they pray to their Lord in fear and hope, and spend of what We have given them (in charity). (16) No soul knows what pleases the eye is in store for them as a recompense for what they used to do. (17) Is he then who is a believer like him who is a transgressor? They are not equal. (18) As for those who believe and do the right, there are gardens for abode as welcome for what they had done. (19) But as for those who defiantly disobeyed, their refuge is the Fire. Every time they wish to emerge from it, they will be returned to it while it is said to them, "Taste the punishment of the Fire which you used to deny." (20) We shall certainly make them suffer worldly torment before suffering the great torment so that perhaps they may return to Us. (21) And who is more unjust than one who is preached to from the verses his Lord, then he turns away from them? We will indeed take revenge from the guilty. (22)
