˹Imagine˺ how many societies We have destroyed that had been spoiled by their ˹comfortable˺ living! Those are their residences, never inhabited after them except passingly.1 And We ˹alone˺ were the Successor.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

ﯿ

Your Lord would never destroy a society until He had sent to its capital a messenger, reciting Our revelations to them. Nor would We ever destroy a society unless its people persisted in wrongdoing.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Whatever ˹pleasure˺ you have been given is no more than ˹a fleeting˺ enjoyment and adornment of this worldly life. But what is with Allah is far better and more lasting. Will you not then understand?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Can those to whom We have made a fine promise—which they will see fulfilled—be like those who We have allowed to enjoy the pleasures of this worldly life, but on the Day of Judgment will be brought ˹for punishment˺?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

˹Watch for˺ the Day He will call to them, “Where are those you claimed were My associate-gods?”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

ﭿ

Those ˹misleaders˺ against whom the decree ˹of torment˺ is justified will cry, “Our Lord! These ˹followers˺ are the ones we caused to deviate. We led them into deviance, for we ourselves were deviant. We disassociate ourselves ˹from them˺ before You. It was not us that they used to worship.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

It will be said ˹to the disbelievers˺, “Call upon your associate-gods ˹for help˺.” So they will call them, but will receive no response. And they will face the punishment, wishing they had been ˹rightly˺ guided!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And ˹watch for˺ the Day He will call to them, asking, “What response did you give to the messengers?”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They will be too dumbstruck on that Day to ask one another ˹for answers˺.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

As for those who repent, believe, and do good ˹in this world˺, it is right to hope that they will be among the successful.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Your Lord creates and chooses whatever He wills—the choice is not theirs. Glorified and Exalted is Allah above what they associate ˹with Him˺!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
