If We willed, We could drown them: then no one would respond to their cries, nor would they be rescued—
except by mercy from Us, allowing them enjoyment for a ˹little˺ while.
˹Still they turn away˺ when it is said to them, “Beware of what is ahead of you ˹in the Hereafter˺ and what is behind you ˹of destroyed nations˺ so you may be shown mercy.”
Whenever a sign comes to them from their Lord, they turn away from it.
And when it is said to them, “Donate from what Allah has provided for you,” the disbelievers say to the believers, “Why should we feed those whom Allah could have fed if He wanted to? You are clearly astray!”
And they ask ˹the believers˺, “When will this threat come to pass, if what you say is true?”
They must be awaiting a single Blast,1 which will seize them while they are ˹entrenched˺ in ˹worldly˺ disputes.
Then they will not be able to make a ˹last˺ will, nor can they return to their own people.
The Trumpet will be blown ˹a second time˺, then—behold!—they will rush from the graves to their Lord.
They will cry, “Woe to us! Who has raised us up from our place of rest? This must be what the Most Compassionate warned us of; the messengers told the truth!”
It will only take one Blast, then at once they will all be brought before Us.
On that Day no soul will be wronged in the least, nor will you be rewarded except for what you used to do.
