[007:044] And the dwellers of Paradise will call out to the dwellers of the Fire (saying): "We have indeed found true what our Lord had promised us; have you also found true what your Lord promised (warned)?" They shall say: "Yes." Then a crier will proclaim between them: "The Curse of Allāh is on the Zālimūn (polytheists and wrong doers)."


[007:045] Those who hindered (men) from the path of Allāh, and would seek to make it crooked, and they were disbelievers in the Hereafter.


[007:046] And between them will be a (barrier) screen and on Al-A'rāf (a wall with elevated places) will be men (whose good and evil deeds would be equal in Scale), who would recognise all (of the Paradise and Hell people), by their marks (the dwellers of Paradise by their white faces and the dwellers of Hell by their black faces). And they will call out to the dwellers of Paradise, "Salāmun 'Alaikūm" (peace be on you), and at that time they (men on Al-A'rāf) will not yet have entered it (Paradise), but they will hope to enter (it) with certainty.


[007:047] And when their eyes will be turned towards the dwellers of the Fire, they will say: "Our Lord! Place us not with the people who are Zālimūn (polytheists and wrong doers)."


[007:048] And the men on Al-A'rāf (the wall) will call to the men whom they would recognise by their marks, saying: "Of what benefit to you were your great numbers (and hoards of wealth), and your arrogance (against Faith)?"


[007:049] Are they those, of whom you swore that Allāh would never show them mercy. (Behold! It has been said to them): "Enter Paradise, no fear shall be on you, nor shall you grieve."


[007:050] And the dwellers of the Fire will call to the dwellers of Paradise: "Pour on us some water or anything that Allāh has provided you with." They will say: "Both (water and provision) Allāh has forbidden to the disbelievers."


[007:051] "Who took their religion as an amusement and play, and the life of the world deceived them." So this Day We shall forget them as they forgot their Meeting of this Day, and as they used to reject Our Ayāt (proofs, signs, evidences, verses, lessons, revelations, etc.).




(V.7:46) Al-A'rāf: It is said that it is a wall between Paradise and Hell and it has on it elevated places. [Please see Tafsir Al-Qurtubi (for details).]
