In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

By the mount Tür (where Moses was given the Torah),[1] and by the Book written[2] on a fine unfolded scroll,[3] and by the inhabited House,[4] and the elevated canopy (sky),[5] and the surging ocean,[6] the torment of your Rabb will surely come to pass![7] There shall be none to avert it.[8] On that Day, heaven will shake violently[9] and the mountain will travel around.[10] On that Day, woe be to the deniers of truth,[11] who are engaged in their useless sports.[12] On that Day they shall be driven to the fire of hell with violence,[13] and it will be said to them: “This is the fire which you denied.[14] Is this a magic, or do you not see?[15] Now burn therein; it will be the same for you, whether you bear it patiently or do not bear it patiently. You are being rewarded according to your deeds."[16] As for the righteous, they will be in Gardens and bliss,[17] rejoicing in what their Rabb has given them and their Rabb shall shield them from the torment of hell.[18] It will be said to them: “Eat and drink to your hearts content, this is the reward for your good deeds."[19] They shall recline on couches arranged in rows; and We shall wed them with beautiful Hüris (damsels).[20] We shall unite the true believers with those of their descendants who follow them in their faith, and shall not deny them the reward of their good deeds - everyone is responsible for his deeds[21] - and We shall provide them fruits, and such meats as they desire.[22] They will pass from hand to hand a cup of wine which shall cause no idle talk, nor sinful urge;[23] and there shall wait for them young boys, exclusively appointed for their service, who will be as handsome as treasured pearls.[24] They will converse with one another about their worldly life[25] and say: “When we were living among our kinfolk, we were troubled by many fears.[26] But Allah has been gracious to us; He has delivered us from the fiery scourge.[27] Indeed we used to pray only to Him. Surely He is the Beneficent, the Merciful."[28]


Deniers of truth will be put in the fire of hell

The reward for the righteous will be paradise in which they will show gratitude for Allah's graciousness

Therefore, O Prophet, keep up your mission of admonition. By the grace of your Rabb you are neither a soothsayer nor a madman.[29] Do they say: “He is but a poet! We are waiting for some misfortune to befall him."[30] Tell them: “Wait if you will; I too shall wait with you."[31] Do their faculties of reasoning prompt them to say this? Or is it merely that they are wicked people?[32] Do they say: “This man has invented this Qur’an himself?” Nay! They do not want to believe.[33] Let them produce a scripture like this, if what they say is true![34] Were they created without a Creator? Or were they their own creators?[35] Did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay! They will never be convinced.[36] Do they possess the treasures of your Rabb? Or is it they who control them?[37] Do they have a stairway to heaven by means of which they overhear Him? If so, let any of them who overheard Him, bring clear proof.[38] Is He to have daughters and you sons?[39] Do you ask them payment for your services, that they should fear to be overburdened by a debt?[40] Do they have the knowledge of the unseen? Can they write it down?[41] Do they intend to devise a plot against you? If so, the disbelievers themselves will be trapped in their plot.[42] Do they have a god other than Allah? Exalted is Allah, far above those deities they associate with Him.[43] They are such people that, even if they will see a part of heaven falling down, they would say: “It is but a mass of clouds."[44] So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs wherein they shall be made to swoon with terror.[45] The Day when their designs will avail them nothing and none will help them.[46] Surely for such wrongdoers, there is another punishment besides that, even though most of them do not realize that.[47] Therefore, wait for the Judgment of your Rabb with patience, We are surely watching over you. Glorify your Rabb with His praises when you wake up,[48] and glorify Him in a part of the night, and also as the stars fade away.[49]


The mission of the Prophet and the response to the disbelievers' argument

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* The reward for the righteous will be paradise in which they will show
gratitude for Allah’s graciousness while the deniers of truth will be put in hellfire.
* Mission of the Prophet is admonition.
* Response to the disbelievers’ disbelief:
- If they doubt The Qur'an, let them produce a scripture like this.
- Were they created without a Creator?
- Do they possess the treasures of God?
- Do they have other means to hear the facts about God?
- Do they have the knowledge of the unseen?
If so let them produce their proof.

Swearing an oath by some realities and signs which testify to the Hereafter, a statement is made emphatically that it will surely come to pass, and none has the power to prevent its occurrence. Then, the statement goes on as to what will be the fate of those who deny it when it actually occurs, and how those who believe in it and adopt the way of righteousness will be blessed by Allah.

Then, the Qureysh chiefs’ attitude towards the message of the Prophet (pbuh) is criticized. They called him a sorcerer, a madman, or a poet, and would thus mislead the common people against him so that they should not pay any serious attention to the message he preached. They looked upon him as a calamity that had suddenly descended on them and would openly wish to get rid of him. They accused him of fabricating the Qur’an by himself and of presenting it in the name of Allah and thus it was fraud that he was committing. They would often taunt him, saying that Allah could not have appointed an ordinary man like him to the office of Prophethood. They expressed great disgust at his invitation and message and would avoid him as if he was asking them a reward for it. They would sit and take counsel together to devise schemes in order to put an end to his mission. And while they did all this, they never realized what creeds of ignorance they were practicing and how selflessly and sincerely was Muhammad (pbuh) exerting himself to deliver them from their error. While criticizing them for this attitude and conduct, Allah has put before them certain questions, one after the other, each of which is either an answer to some objection of theirs, or a criticism of some error. Then, it has been said that it would absolutely be of no avail to show them a miracle in order to convince them of his Prophethood, for they were such stubborn people as would misinterpret anything they were shown only to avoid affirming the faith.

The Holy Prophet (pbuh) is given the instruction that he should persistently continue giving his invitation and preaching his message in spite of the accusations and objections of his opponents and enemies, and should endure their resistance patiently till Allah’s judgement comes to pass. Besides, he has been consoled, as if to say “Your Rabb has not left you alone to face your enemies, after raising you as a Prophet, but He is constantly watching over you. Therefore, endure every hardship patiently till the Hour of His Judgement comes, and seek through praising and glorifying your Rabb the power that is required for exerting in the cause of Allah under such conditions.
