NOW, VERILY, it is We who have created man, and We know what his innermost self whispers within him: for We are closer to him than his neck-vein. (16) When both receivers (the angels) receive, one on his right, the other on his left, (17) He uttereth no word but there is with him an observer ready. (18) The palsy of death will surely come. This is what you wished to avert. (19) And the trumpet shall be blown; that is the day of the threatening. (20) Each person will arrive attended by an [angel] to drive him on and another to bear witness. (21) (It will be said:) "Thou wast heedless of this; now have We removed thy veil, and sharp is thy sight this Day!" (22) And his Companion will say: "Here is (his Record) ready with me!" (23) (It will be said): 'Indeed, cast into Gehenna (Hell) every deviating unbeliever, (24) "Every obstructor of good, transgressor, and the sceptic, (25) who has set up another god besides God: cast him into severe punishment" -- (26) ۞ Man's other self' will say: "O our Sustainer! It was not I that led his conscious mind into evil [nay,] but it had gone far astray [of its own accord]! (27) He will say: Do not quarrel in My presence, and indeed I gave you the threatening beforehand: (28) "The Word changes not before Me, and I do not the least injustice to My Servants." (29)
