By your Lord, We shall gather them and the devils together, then bring them crawling on their knees around Hell.
We shall pull out of every section those who were most perversely rebellious against Ar-Rahman.
We know best who deserve to be burnt in (the Fire).
There is not one among you who will not reach it. Your Lord has made this incumbent on Himself.
We shall deliver those who took heed for themselves, and leave the evil-doers kneeling there.

God gives greater guidance to those who are guided; and good deeds that endure are better with your Lord for reward, and better for consequence.
