Say to My believing servants, "Have fear of your Lord. Those who act righteously in this life will receive good reward. The land of God is vast. God will recompense the deeds of those who have exercised patience, without keeping an account". (10) Say, “I am commanded that I must worship Allah as His sincere bondman.” (And so must you too.) (11) and I am bidden to be the first of those who surrender to Him.” (12) Say: “If I disobey my Lord, I fear the chastisement of an Awesome Day.” (13) Say: Allah (it is Whom) I serve, being sincere to Him in my obedience: (14) so serve what you will apart from Him.' Say: 'Surely the losers are they who lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection; is not that the manifest loss? (15) Above and below them their will be shadows of fire. This is how God frightens His servants. My servants have fear of Me. (16) And those who stayed away from the worship of idols, and inclined towards Allah for them are glad tidings; therefore give glad tidings to My bondmen. (17) Those who listen to the Word, and follow the best (meaning) in it: those are the ones whom Allah has guided, and those are the ones endued with understanding. (18) On the other hand, could one on whom [God's] sentence of suffering has been passed [be rescued by man]? Couldst thou, perchance, save one who is [already, as it were,] in the fire? (19) But for those who fear their Lord, are the high chambers with more high chambers built above them rivers flowing beneath them; a promise of Allah; Allah does not renege on His promise. (20) Hast thou not seen how Allah hath sent down water from the sky and hath caused it to penetrate the earth as watersprings, and afterward thereby produceth crops of divers hues; and afterward they wither and thou seest them turn yellow; then He maketh them chaff. Lo! herein verily is a reminder for men of understanding. (21)
