[023:105] "Were not My Verses (this Qur'ān) recited to you, and then you used to deny them?"
[023:106] They will say: "Our Lord! Our wretchedness overcame us, and we were (an) erring people.
[023:107] "Our Lord! Bring us out of this. If ever we return (to evil), then indeed we shall be Zālimūn (polytheists, oppressors, unjust, and wrong doers)."
[023:108] He (Allāh) will say: "Remain you in it with ignominy! And speak you not to Me!"
[023:109] Verily, there was a party of My slaves who used to say: "Our Lord! We believe so forgive us and have mercy on us, for You are the Best of all who show mercy!"
[023:110] But you took them for a laughing stock, so much so that they made you forget My remembrance while you used to laugh at them!
[023:111] Verily, I have rewarded them this Day for their patience, they are indeed the ones that are successful.
[023:112] He (Allāh) will say: "What number of years did you stay on earth?"
[023:113] They will say: "We stayed a day or part of a day. Ask of those who keep account."
[023:114] He (Allāh) will say: "You stayed not but a little, if you had only known!
[023:115] "Did you think that We had created you in play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought back to Us?"
[023:116] So Exalted is Allāh, the True King: Lā ilāha illā Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Lord of the Supreme Throne!
[023:117] And whoever invokes (or worships) besides Allāh, any other ilāh (god), of whom he has no proof, then his reckoning is only with his Lord. Surely, Al-Kāfirūn (the disbelievers in Allāh and in the Oneness of Allāh, polytheists, pagans, idolaters) will not be successful.
[023:118] And say (O Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the Best of those who show mercy!"
