Hizb 48
Juz 24
Then said he who believed, 'My people, follow me, and I will guide you in the way of rectitude. (38) O my people, surely this present life is but a passing enjoyment; surely the world to come is the abode of stability. (39) Those who do an evil deed shall only be rewarded with its like, but those who believe and do good works, either men and women, shall enter the Gardens of Paradise and are provided for without reckoning. (40) ۞ And, O my people! how is it that I call you to salvation and you call me to the fire? (41) Ye call me for this, that I should blaspheme against God and associate with Him that whereof I have no knowledge, and I call you onto the Mighty, the Forgiver. (42) Surely that to which you call me has no say in this world or in the life to come, that our return is to God alone, and that the transgressors shall be the inmates of the Fire. (43) And you will remember what I [now] say to you, and I entrust my affair to Allah. Indeed, Allah is Seeing of [His] servants." (44) So Allah warded off from him the evils which they plotted, while a dreadful doom encompassed Pharaoh's folk, (45) The Fire, they are exposed to it morning and evening. And the Day the Hour appears [it will be said], "Make the people of Pharaoh enter the severest punishment." (46) Just imagine when they will remonstrate with one another in Hell. The weak ones will say to those who waxed proud: “We were your followers. Will you, then, lighten for us a part of our suffering of the Fire?” (47) Those who had been arrogant will say, "Indeed, all [of us] are in it. Indeed, Allah has judged between the servants." (48) And those who are in the fire said to its guards, “Pray to your Lord to decrease the punishment upon us for one day.” (49) The keepers of Hell will ask: “Did your Messengers not come to you with Clear Signs?” They will say: “Yes (they did).” The keepers of Hell will say: “Then you yourselves should call (upon the Lord). And the call of the unbelievers will end in vain.” (50)
