[013:035] The description of the Paradise which the Muttaqn (the pious. See V.2:2) have been promised: Underneath it rivers flow, its provision is eternal and so is its shade; this is the end (final destination) of the Muttaqn (the pious. See V.2:2), and the end (final destination) of the disbelievers is Fire. (See Verse 47:15)


[013:036] Those to whom We have given the Book (such as 'Abdullh bin Salm and other Jews who embraced Islm), rejoice at what has been revealed to you (i.e. the Qur'n), but there are among the Confederates (from the Jews and pagans) those who reject a part thereof. Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "I am commanded only to worship Allh (Alone) and not to join partners with Him. To Him (Alone) I call and to Him is my return."


[013:037] And thus have We sent it (the Qur'n) down to be a judgement of authority in Arabic. Were you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) to follow their (vain) desires after the knowledge which has come to you, then you will not have any Wal (protector) or Wq (defender) against Allh.


[013:038] And indeed We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and made for them wives and offspring. And it was not for a Messenger to bring a sign except by Allh's Leave. (For) every matter there is a Decree (from Allh). (Tafsir At-Tabari)


[013:039] Allh blots out what He wills and confirms (what He wills). And with Him is the Mother of the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfz)


[013:040] Whether We show you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) part of what We have promised them or cause you to die, your duty is only to convey (the Message) and on Us is the reckoning.


[013:041] See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of the disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.


[013:042] And verily, those before them did devise plots, but all planning is Allh's. He knows what every person earns, and the disbelievers will know who gets the good end (final destination).
