004 - Soorah an-Nisaa. - (The Women) - [Madanee]
[004:052] They are those whom Allâh has cursed, and he whom Allâh curses, you will not find for him (any) helper,
[004:053] Or have they a share in the dominion? Then in that case they would not give mankind even a Naqîra (speck on the back of a date stone).
[004:054] Or do they envy men (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] and his followers) for what Allâh has given them of His bounty? Then, We had already given the family of Ibrâhîm (Abraham) the Book and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah – Divine Revelation to those Prophets not written in the form of a book), and conferred upon them a great kingdom.
[004:055] Of them were (some) who believed in him (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and of them were (some) who averted their faces from him (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]); and enough is Hell for burning (them).
[004:056] Surely, those who disbelieved in Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allâh is Ever Most Powerful, All-Wise.
[004:057] But those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), abiding therein forever. Therein they shall have Azwâjun Mutahharatun (purified mates or wives), and We shall admit them to shades wide and ever deepening (Paradise).
[004:058] Verily, Allâh commands that you should render back the trusts to those, to whom they are due; and that when you judge between men, you judge with justice. Verily, how excellent is the teaching which He (Allâh) gives you! Truly, Allâh is Ever All-Hearer, All-Seer.
[004:059] O you who believe! Obey Allâh and obey the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allâh and His Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam], if you believe in Allâh and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.

(V.4:57) Narrated Anas bin Mâlik [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "There is a tree in Paradise (which is so big and huge that) if a rider travels in its shade for one hundred years, he will not be able to cross it." [Sahih Al-Bukhâri, 4/3251 (O.P.474)].
