What aileth those who disbelieve, that they keep staring toward thee (O Muhammad), open-eyed, 36 In crowds, right and left? 37 Does every one of them aspire to be admitted into a Garden of Delight? 38 By no means! verily We! We have created them from that which they know. 39 But nay! I call to witness the Lord of the Easts and the Wests, that We have the power 40 To replace them by others better than they; and We are not to be outrun. 41 So leave them to engage in vain talk and to amuse themselves until they come face to face with the Day which they are promised, 42 the Day when they shall come out of their graves in haste, as if they were racing to a goal, 43 with downcast eyes and faces distorted in shame; such is the Day which they are promised. 44
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
