except those who pray,
٢٣
consistently performing their prayers;
٢٤
and who give the rightful share of their wealth
٢٥
to the beggar and the poor;
٢٦
and who ˹firmly˺ believe in the Day of Judgment;
٢٧
and those who fear the punishment of their Lord—
٢٨
˹knowing that˺ none should feel secure from their Lord’s punishment—
٢٩
and those who guard their chastity1
٣٠
except with their wives or those ˹bondwomen˺ in their possession,1 for then they are free from blame,
٣١
but whoever seeks beyond that are the transgressors.
٣٢
˹The faithful are˺ also those who are true to their trusts and covenants;
٣٣
and who are honest in their testimony;
٣٤
and who are ˹properly˺ observant of their prayers.
٣٥
These will be in Gardens, held in honour.
٣٦
So what is the matter with the disbelievers that they rush ˹head-long˺ towards you ˹O Prophet˺,
٣٧
from the right and the left, in groups ˹to mock you˺?1
٣٨
Does every one of them expect to be admitted into a Garden of Bliss?
٣٩
But no! Indeed, they ˹already˺ know what We created them from.1
