Do they bequeath it to each other ?
Yea, they are an outrageous people !
So turn thy back upon them, so thou wilt not be to blame.
55 And remind ; for, verily, the reminder shall profit the believers.
And I have not created the ginn and mankind save that they may worship me.
I do not desire any provision from them, and I do not wish them to feed me.
Verily, God, He is the provider, endowed with steady might.
Verily, for those who injure (the Apostle) shall be a portion like the portion of their fellows, but let them not hurry Me !
60 Then woe to those who misbelieve from their day which they are threatened.
The Chapter of the Mount.
In the name of the merciful and compassionate God.
By the mount ! by the Book inscribed upon an outstretched vellum ! by the frequented house! 5 by the elevated roof! by the swelling sea ! verily, the torment of thy Lord will come to pass ; — there is none to avert it !
The day when the heavens shall reel about,
- I. e. this taunt.
- I. e. like the fate of those who wronged the apostles of old.
- I. e. either the Kaabah itself or the model of it, said to exist in the heavens and to be frequented by the angels.
- I. e. of heaven.
