010 - Soorah Yoonus - ((Prophet) Jonah) - [Makkee]
[010:043] And among them are some who look at you, but can you guide the blind – even though they see not?
[010:044] Truly, Allâh wrongs not mankind in aught; but mankind wrong themselves.
[010:045] And on the Day when He shall gather (resurrect) them together, (it will be) as if they had not stayed (in the life of this world and graves) but an hour of a day. They will recognise each other. Ruined indeed will be those who denied the Meeting with Allâh and were not guided.
[010:046] Whether We show you (in your lifetime, O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) some of what We promise them (the torment), or We cause you to die – still to Us is their return, and moreover Allâh is Witness over what they used to do.
[010:047] And for every Ummah (a community or a nation) there is a Messenger; when their Messenger comes, the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged.
[010:048] And they say: "When will be this promise (the torment or the Day of Resurrection), if you speak the truth?"
[010:049] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "I have no power over any harm or profit to myself except what Allâh may will. For every Ummah (a community or a nation), there is a term appointed; when their term comes, neither can they delay it nor can they advance it an hour (or a moment)." (Tafsir Al-Qurtubî).
[010:050] Say: "Tell me, if His torment should come to you by night or by day, which portion thereof would the Mujrimûn (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals) hasten on?"
[010:051] Is it then that when it has actually befallen, you will believe in it? What! Now (you believe)? And you used (aforetime) to hasten it on!"
[010:052] Then it will be said to them who wronged themselves: "Taste you the everlasting torment! Are you recompensed (aught) save what you used to earn?"
[010:053] And they ask you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) to inform them (saying): "Is it true (i.e. the torment and the establishment of the Hour – the Day of Resurrection)?" Say: "Yes! By my Lord! It is the very truth! and you cannot escape it!"
