Racing ahead, their heads raised up, their glance does not come back to them, and their hearts are void.
And, [O Muúammad], warn the people of a Day when the punishment will come to them and those who did wrong will say, |Our Lord, delay us for a short term; we will answer Your call and follow the messengers.| [But it will be said], |Had you not sworn, before, that for you there would be no cessation?
And you lived among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, and it had become clear to you how We dealt with them. And We presented for you [many] examples.
And they had planned their plan, but with Allah is [recorded] their plan, even if their plan had been [sufficient] to do away with the mountains.
So never think that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution.
[It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah , the One, the Prevailing.
And you will see the criminals that Day bound together in shackles,
Their garments of liquid pitch and their faces covered by the Fire.
So that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.
This [Qur'an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded.
