For, behold, it is the God-conscious [alone] whom gardens of bliss await with their Sustainer: 34 Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals? 35 What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge? 36 Or do you have a scripture in which you learn 37 that you will be granted whatever you choose? 38 Or have ye a covenant on oath from Us that reacheth to the Day of Judgment, that yours shall be all that ye ordain? 39 Ask them, which of them will vouch for that! 40 Or have they other partners [besides God]? Let them bring forth their other partners, if what they say be true. 41 On the day when the Shin* will be exposed and they will be called to prostrate themselves, they will be unable. (Used as a metaphor) 42 Downcast will be their looks; abjectness will overspread them. Surely they had been called upon to prostrate themselves while yet they were whole. 43 Let Me alone with him who belieth this discourse; step by step We lead them on when they perceive not. 44 I shall respite them, My stratagem is firm. 45 Or askest thou them for a wage, and so they are weighed down with debt? 46 Or do they have any knowledge of the Unseen which they are now writing down? 47 So bear with patience until the Judgement of your Lord comes, and do not belike the man in the fish (i.e., Jonah) who called out, choking with grief: 48 Had it not been that favour from his Lord had reached him he surely had been cast into the wilderness while he was reprobate. 49 But his Lord exalted him, and included him among His righteous servants. 50 And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!" 51 When it is naught else than a Reminder to creation. 52
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
