For, it is neither your riches nor your children that can bring you nearer to Us: only he who attains to faith and does what is right and just [comes near unto Us]; and it is [such as] these whom multiple recompense awaits for all that they have done; and it is they who shall dwell secure in the mansions [of paradise] (37) But those who labor to negate Our verses shall be arraigned in to the punishment. (38) Say: "Truly, my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves, and (also) restricts (it) for him, and whatsoever you spend of anything (in Allah's Cause), He will replace it. And He is the Best of providers." (39) And [as for those who now deny the truth,] one Day He will gather them all together, and will ask the angels, "Was it you that they were wont to worship?" (40) They will say, “Purity is to you only you are our Supporter, not they; in fact they worshipped the jinns; most of them believed only in them.” (41) None of them can help or harm each other on this day. We shall tell the unjust ones, "Suffer the torment of the fire which you had called a lie."

And the unbelievers say to the truth, when it has come to them, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery. (43) And We had not vouchsafed unto them Books they should have been studying, nor had We sent unto them, before thee, any warner. (44) Their predecessors also rejected the truth. These have not attained to one tenth of the power that We had bestowed upon the earlier people. But they rejected My messengers. Then how terrible, was My chastisement! (45)
