If Allah were to punish people ˹immediately˺ for their wrongdoing, He would not have left a single living being on earth. But He delays them for an appointed term. And when their time arrives, they cannot delay it for a moment, nor could they advance it.
They attribute to Allah what they hate ˹for themselves˺,1 and their tongues utter the lie that they will have the finest reward. Without a doubt, for them is the Fire, where they will be abandoned.
By Allah! We have surely sent messengers to communities before you ˹O Prophet˺, but Satan made their misdeeds appealing to them. So he is their patron today, and they will suffer a painful punishment.
We have revealed to you the Book only to clarify for them what they differed about, and as a guide and mercy for those who believe.
