47. And they used to say: "When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be resurrected?


48. "And also our forefathers?"


49. Say (O Muhammad ): "(Yes) verily, those of old, and those of later times.


50. "All will surely be gathered together for appointed Meeting of a known Day.


51. "Then moreover, verily, you the erring-ones, the deniers (of Resurrection)!

53. "Then you will fill your bellies therewith,


54. "And drink boiling water on top of it,


55. "So you will drink (that) like thirsty camels!"


56. That will be their entertainment on the Day of Recompense!


57. We created you, then why do you believe not?


58. Then tell Me (about) the human semen that you emit.


59. Is it you who create it (i.e. make this semen into a perfect human being), or are We the Creator?


60. We have decreed death to you all, and We are not unable,


61. To transfigure you and create you in (forms) that you know not.


62. And indeed, you have already known the first form of creation (i.e. the creation of Adam), why then do you not remember or take heed?


63. Tell Me! The seed that you sow in the ground.


64. Is it you that make it grow, or are We the Grower?


65. Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry pieces, and you would be regretful (or left in wonderment).


66. (Saying): "We are indeed Mughramun (i.e. ruined or lost the money without any profit, or punished by the loss of all that we spend for cultivation, etc.)! [See Tafsir Al-Qurtubi, Vol. 17, Page 219]


67. "Nay, but we are deprived!"


68. Tell Me! The water that you drink.


69. Is it you who cause it from the rainclouds to come down, or are We the Causer of it to come down?


70. If We willed, We verily could make it salt (and undrinkable), why then do you not give thanks (to Allah)?


71. Tell Me! The fire which you kindle,


72. Is it you who made the tree thereof to grow, or are We the Grower?


73. We have made it a Reminder (for the Hell-fire, in the Hereafter); and an article of use for the travellers (and all the others, in this world).


74. Then glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.


75. So I swear by Mawaqi (setting or the mansions, etc.) of the stars (they traverse).


76. And verily, that is indeed a great oath, if you but know.


77. That (this) is indeed an honourable recital (the Noble Qur'an).


78. In a Book well-guarded (with Allah in the heaven i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz).


79. Which (that Book with Allah) none can touch but the purified (i.e. the angels).


80. A Revelation (this Qur'an) from the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).


81. Is it such a talk (this Qur'an) that you (disbelievers) deny?


82. And instead (of thanking Allah) for the provision He gives you, on the contrary, you deny Him (by disbelief)!


83. Then why do you not (intervene) when (the soul of a dying person) reaches the throat?


84. And you at the moment are looking on,


85. But We (i.e. Our angels who take the soul) are nearer to him than you, but you see not, [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol.27, Page 209]


86. Then why do you not, if you are exempt from the reckoning and recompense (punishment, etc.)


87. Bring back the soul (to its body), if you are truthful?


88. Then, if he (the dying person) be of the Muqarrabun (those brought near to Allah),


89. (There is for him) rest and provision, and a Garden of delights (Paradise).


90.  And if he (the dying person) be of those on the Right Hand,


91. Then there is safety and peace (from the Punishment of Allah) for (you as you are from) those on the Right Hand.


92. But if he (the dying person) be of the denying (of the Resurrection), the erring (away from the Right Path of Islamic Monotheism),


93. Then for him is entertainment with boiling water.


94. And burning in Hell-fire.


95. Verily, this! This is an absolute Truth with certainty.


96. So glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
