Hast thou considered him who turns his back 33 And gave a little, then was grudging? 34 Has he knowledge of the Unknown that he perceives everything? 35 Or has he not been informed of what was in the scriptures of Moses 36 And with Abraham who kept his word: 37 That no laden one shall bear another's load, 38 That man can have nothing but what he strives for; 39 That his endeavours will be judged, 40 Then will he be rewarded with a reward complete; 41 and that the final end is unto thy Lord, 42 And that it is He (Allah) Who makes (whom He wills) laugh, and makes (whom He wills) weep; 43 It is He who causes death and gives life. 44 and that it is He who creates the two kinds - the male and the female 45 out of a [mere] drop of sperm as it is poured forth, 46 and that [therefore] it is within His power to bring about a second life; 47 That it is He Who giveth wealth and satisfaction; 48 that He is the Lord of Sirius. 49 And that He destroyed the former 'A-ad. 50 And Thamud, and did not leave them, 51 and before them the nation of Noah, they exceeded in evil and were insolent. 52 And the overthrown cities did He overthrow, 53 And covered them by that which He covered. 54 So, which of your Lord's bounties will you doubt?” 55 This is a warning just like those of former times. 56 What is to come is imminent. 57 [although] none but God can unveil it.... 58 At this discourse then marvel ye? 59 And laugh and not weep? 60 Wasting your time in vanities? 61 So fall you down in prostration to Allah, and worship Him (Alone). ۩ 62
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
