You invite me to disbelieve in Allah and associate with Him what I have no knowledge of, while I invite you to the Almighty, Most Forgiving.
There is no doubt that whatever ˹idols˺ you invite me to ˹worship˺ are not worthy to be invoked either in this world or the Hereafter.1 ˹Undoubtedly,˺ our return is to Allah, and the transgressors will be the inmates of the Fire.
You will remember what I say to you, and I entrust my affairs to Allah. Surely Allah is All-Seeing of all ˹His˺ servants.”
So Allah protected him from the evil of their schemes. And Pharaoh’s people were overwhelmed by an evil punishment:
they are exposed to the Fire ˹in their graves˺ morning and evening. And on the Day the Hour will be established ˹it will be said˺, “Admit Pharaoh’s people into the harshest punishment ˹of Hell˺.”
˹Consider the Day˺ when they will dispute in the Fire, and the lowly ˹followers˺ will appeal to the arrogant ˹leaders˺, “We were your ˹dedicated˺ followers, will you then shield us from a portion of the Fire?”
The arrogant will say, “We are all in it! ˹For˺ Allah has already passed judgment over ˹His˺ servants.”
And those in the Fire will cry out to the keepers of Hell,1 “Pray to your Lord to lighten the torment for us ˹even˺ for one day!”
