[020:099] Thus We relate to you (O Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) some information of what happened before. And indeed We have given you from Us a Reminder (this Qur'ān).


[020:100] Whoever turns away from it (this Qur'ān – i.e. does not believe in it, nor acts on its orders), verily, they will bear a heavy burden (of sins) on the Day of Resurrection,


[020:101] They will abide in that (state in the Fire of Hell) – and evil indeed will it be that load for them on the Day of Resurrection;


[020:102] The Day when the Trumpet will be blown (the second blowing): that Day, We shall gather the Mujrimūn (criminals, polytheists, sinners, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allāh) blue or blind-eyed with thirst.


[020:103] They will speak in a very low voice to each other (saying): "You stayed not longer than ten (days)."


[020:104] We know very well what they will say, when the best among them in knowledge and wisdom will say: "You stayed no longer than a day!"


[020:105] And they ask you concerning the mountains, say: "My Lord will blast them and scatter them as particles of dust.


[020:106] "Then He shall leave them as a level smooth plain.


[020:107] "You will see therein nothing crooked or curved."


[020:108] On that Day mankind will follow strictly (the voice of) Allāh's caller, no crookedness (that is without going to the right or left of that voice) will they show him (Allāh's caller). And all voices will be humbled for the Most Gracious (Allāh), and nothing shall you hear but the low voice of their footsteps.


[020:109] On that day no intercession shall avail, except the one for whom the Most Gracious (Allāh) has given permission and whose word is acceptable to Him.


[020:110] He (Allāh) knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them (in the Hereafter) but they will never encompass anything of His Knowledge.


[020:111] And (all) faces shall be humbled before (Allāh), Al-Hayyul-Qayyum (the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists). And he who carried (a burden of) wrongdoing (i.e. he who disbelieved in Allāh, ascribed partners to Him, and did deeds of His disobedience), will be indeed a complete failure (on that Day).


[020:112] And he who works deeds of righteousness, while he is a believer (in Islāmic Monotheism), then he will have no fear of injustice, nor of any curtailment (of his reward).


[020:113] And thus We have sent it down as a Qur'ān in Arabic, and have explained therein in detail the warnings, in order that they may fear Allāh, or that it may cause them to have a lesson from it (or to have the honour for believing and acting on its teachings).
