[They will be asked], |What is [wrong] with you? Why do you not help each other?|
But they, that Day, are in surrender.
And they will approach one another blaming each other.
They will say, |Indeed, you used to come at us from the right.
The oppressors will say, |Rather, you [yourselves] were not believers,
And we had over you no authority, but you were a transgressing people.
So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us; indeed, we will taste [punishment].
And we led you to deviation; indeed, we were deviators.
So indeed they, that Day, will be sharing in the punishment.
Indeed, that is how We deal with the criminals.
Indeed they, when it was said to them, |There is no deity but Allah ,| were arrogant
And were saying, |Are we to leave our gods for a mad poet?|
Rather, the Prophet has come with the truth and confirmed the [previous] messengers.
Indeed, you [disbelievers] will be tasters of the painful punishment,
And you will not be recompensed except for what you used to do -
But not the chosen servants of Allah .
Those will have a provision determined -
Fruits; and they will be honored
In gardens of pleasure
On thrones facing one another.
There will be circulated among them a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring,
White and delicious to the drinkers;
No bad effect is there in it, nor from it will they be intoxicated.
And with them will be women limiting [their] glances, with large, [beautiful] eyes,
As if they were [delicate] eggs, well-protected.
And they will approach one another, inquiring of each other.
A speaker among them will say, |Indeed, I had a companion [on earth]
