Surah Al-Muddaththir 74:41-56

74:41 Of those who were lost in sin. 

74:42 “What has brought you into hell-fire?”

74:43 They will answer “We were not among those who prayed.

74:44 And neither did we feed the needy. 

74:45 And we were wont to indulge in sinning together with all [the others] who indulged in it. 

74:46 And the Day of Judgment we were wont to call a lie. 

74:47 Until certainty came upon us [in death].”

74:48 And so, of no benefit to them, could be the intercession of any that would intercede for them.

74:49 What, Then, is amiss with them that they turn away from all admonition. 

74:50 As though they were terrified asses. 

74:51 Fleeing from a lion?

74:52 Yeah, every one of them claims that he [himself] ought to have been given revelations unfolded!

74:53 Nay, but they do not [believe in and, hence, do not] fear the life to come.

74:54 Nay, verily, this is an admonition. 

74:55 And whoever wills may take it to heart.

74:56 But they [who do not believe in the life to come] will not take it to heart unless God so wills, [for] He is the Fount of all God-consciousness and the Fount of all forgiveness.


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
