Anyone whose heart God has opened up to Islam possesses a light from his Lord. But woe betide those whose hearts have been hardened against the rememberance of God! Such people are in obvious error. (22) Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allah's praises. Such is the guidance of Allah: He guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as Allah leaves to stray, can have none to guide. (23) Is he who guards himself with his face against the evil of the chastisement on the Day of Resurrection...? And it is said to the evildoers, 'Taste now that you were earning!' (24) Those before them denied, and so the doom came on them whence they knew not. (25) so God let them taste degradation in this present life; and the chastisement of the world to come is assuredly greater, did they but know. (26) We have given examples of every kind for men in this Qur'an so that they may contemplate: (27) A clear discourse which expounds all things without any obliquity, so that they may take heed for themselves. (28) Allah illustrates an example “A man having several wicked masters as partners, and another man belonging wholly to just one master; are the two equal in comparison?” All praise is to Allah; in fact, most among them do not know. (29) Surely you shall die and they (too) shall surely die. (30) Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection, before your Lord ye will dispute. (31)
