We restored his family to him with others similar to them, as a blessing from Us and a reminder for men of wisdom. --
"Take a handful of herbs," (We said to him), and apply and rub them, and do not make a mistake." We found him patient in adversity, an excellent devotee, always turning in repentance.
Remember Our votaries Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, men of power and insight.
We distinguished them for the distinct remembrance of the abode (of the Hereafter).
They are the chosen ones, the excellent in Our sight.
And remember Ishmael, Elisha and Dhu'l-Kifl. Every one of them is among the best.
This is a commemoration. Surely for those who take heed for themselves is an excellent place of return --
Gardens of Eden with gates open wide to them,
Where they will take their ease, calling for fruits in plenty, and for wine,
With companions of modest look, the same in age, by their side.
This is what is promised you for the Day of Reckoning.
This is surely Our provision never-ending.
This (for the virtuous); but for the transgressors the evil destination,
Hell, in which they will burn. How vile a resting place!
There will be boiling water for them and cold, clammy, fetid drink to taste,
And other similar torments.
Here is a multitude rushing headlong with you. There is no welcome for them. They will roast in the fire.
They will say: "In fact, it is you who will have no welcome. It is you who brought this upon us. What an evil place of rest!"
They will say: "O Lord, give him who has brought this upon us two times more the torment of Hell;"
