Indeed, those who do not believe in the Hereafter label angels as female,
٢٨
although they have no knowledge ˹in support˺ of this. They follow nothing but ˹inherited˺ assumptions. And surely assumptions can in no way replace the truth.
٢٩
So turn away ˹O Prophet˺ from whoever has shunned Our Reminder,1 only seeking the ˹fleeting˺ life of this world.
٣٠
This is the extent of their knowledge. Surely your Lord knows best who has strayed from His Way and who is ˹rightly˺ guided.
٣١
To Allah ˹alone˺ belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth so that He may reward the evildoers according to what they did, and reward the good-doers with the finest reward1
٣٢
those who avoid major sins and shameful deeds, despite ˹stumbling on˺ minor sins. Surely your Lord is infinite in forgiveness. He knew well what would become of you as He created you from the earth1 and while you were ˹still˺ fetuses in the wombs of your mothers.2 So do not ˹falsely˺ elevate yourselves. He knows best who is ˹truly˺ righteous.
٣٣
Have you seen the one who turned away ˹from Islam,˺
٣٤
and ˹initially˺ paid a little ˹for his salvation˺, and then stopped?
٣٥
Does he have the knowledge of the unseen so that he sees ˹the Hereafter˺?
٣٦
Or has he not been informed of what is in the Scripture of Moses,
٣٧
and ˹that of˺ Abraham, who ˹perfectly˺ fulfilled ˹his covenant˺?
٣٨
˹They state˺ that no soul burdened with sin will bear the burden of another,
٣٩
and that each person will only have what they endeavoured towards,
٤٠
and that ˹the outcome of˺ their endeavours will be seen ˹in their record˺,
٤١
then they will be fully rewarded,
٤٢
and that to your Lord ˹alone˺ is the ultimate return ˹of all things˺.
٤٣
Moreover, He is the One Who brings about joy and sadness.1
٤٤
And He is the One Who gives life and causes death.
