[019:052] And We called him from the right side of the Mount, and made him draw near to Us for a talk with him [Mūsā (Moses)].
[019:053] And We granted him his brother Hārūn (Aaron), (also) a Prophet, out of Our Mercy.
[019:054] And mention in the Book (the Qur'ān) Ismā'īl (Ishmael). Verily, he was true to what he promised, and he was a Messenger, (and) a Prophet.
[019:055] And he used to enjoin on his family and his people As-Salāt (the prayers) and the Zakāt (obligatory charity), and his Lord was pleased with him.
[019:056] And mention in the Book (the Qur'ān) Idrīs. Verily, he was a man of truth, (and) a Prophet.
[019:057] And We raised him to a high station.
[019:058] Those were they to whom Allāh bestowed His Grace from among the Prophets, of the offspring of Adam, and of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Nūh (Noah), and of the offspring of Ibrāhīm (Abraham) and Israel, and from among those whom We guided and chose. When the Verses of the Most Gracious (Allāh) were recited to them, they fell down prostrate and weeping.
[019:059] Then, there has succeeded them posterity who have given up As-Salāt (the prayers) [i.e. made their Salāt (prayers) to be lost, either by not offering them or by not offering them perfectly or by not offering them in their proper fixed times] and have followed lusts. So, they will be thrown in Hell.
[019:060] Except those who repent and believe (in the Oneness of Allāh and His Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and work righteousness. Such will enter Paradise and they will not be wronged in aught.
[019:061] (They will enter) 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens), which the Most Gracious (Allāh) has promised to His slaves in the unseen. Verily, His Promise must come to pass.
[019:062] They shall not hear therein (in Paradise) any Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk), but only Salām (salutations of peace). And they will have therein their sustenance, morning and afternoon. [See (V.40:55)].
[019:063] Such is the Paradise which We shall give as an inheritance to those of Our slaves who have been Al-Muttaqūn (the pious. See V.2:2).
[019:064] And we (angels) descend not except by the Command of your Lord (O Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). To Him belongs what is before us and what is behind us, and what is between those two; and your Lord is never forgetful -
* (V.19:58) Prostration (see the List of Prostration Places at the end).
(V.19:59) Lusts: like drinking alcoholic drinks; giving false witnesses; eating unlawful things - meat of edible animals not slaughtered according to Allāh's Order; taking intoxicants; narcotic drugs like opium, morphine, heroin, cannabis; committing crimes; evil wicked deeds like illegal sexual acts, murdering, taking others' rights unlawfully, robbing, stealing, betraying, backbiting, slandering, telling lies.
