TIME AND AGE are witness
Man is certainly loss,
Except those who believe, and do good and enjoin truth on one another, and enjoin one another to bear with fortitude (the trials that befall).
WOE TO EVERY slanderer, back-biter,
Who amasses wealth and hordes it.
Does he think his wealth will abide for ever with him?
By no means. He will be thrown into Hutama.
How will you comprehend what Hutama is?
It is the fire kindled by God
Which penetrates the hearts
(And) vaults them over
In extending columns.
HAVE YOU NOT seen how your Lord dealt with the people of the elephants?
Did He not make their plan go wrong,
And sent hordes of chargers flying against them,
(While) you were pelting them with stones of porphyritic lava,
And turned them into pastured fields of corn?
