[033:063] People ask you concerning the Hour, say: "The knowledge of it is with Allh only. What do you know? It may be that the Hour is near!"


[033:064] Verily, Allh has cursed the disbelievers, and has prepared for them a flaming Fire (Hell).


[033:065] Wherein they will abide for ever, and they will find neither a Wal (a protector) nor a helper.


[033:066] On the Day when their faces will be turned over in the Fire, they will say: "Oh, would that we had obeyed Allh and obeyed the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam])."


[033:067] And they will say: "Our Lord! Verily, we obeyed our chiefs and our great ones, and they misled us from the (Right) Way.


[033:068] "Our Lord! Give them double torment and curse them with a mighty curse!"


[033:069] O you who believe! Be not like those who annoyed Ms (Moses), but Allh cleared him of that which they alleged, and he was honourable before Allh.


[033:070] O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allh and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth.


[033:071] He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allh and His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam], he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and will be admitted to Paradise).


[033:072] Truly, We did offer Al-Amnah (the trust or moral responsibility or honesty and all the duties which Allh has ordained) to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it (i.e. afraid of Allh's torment). But man bore it. Verily, he was unjust (to himself) and ignorant (of its results).


[033:073] So that Allh will punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the men and women who are Al-Mushrikn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allh and His Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). And Allh will pardon (accept the repentance of) the true believers of Islmic Monotheism, men and women. And Allh is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.




(V.33:69) Narrated Ab Hurairah [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]: Allh's Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "(Prophet) Ms (Moses) was a shy person and used to cover his body completely because of his extensive shyness. One of the Children of Israel annoyed him by saying, 'He covers his body in this way only because of some defect in his skin, either leprosy or scrotal hernia, or he had some other defect.' Allh wished to clear Ms (Moses) of what they said about him, so one day while Ms (Moses) was in seclusion, he took off his clothes and put them on a stone and started taking a bath. When he had finished the bath, he moved towards his clothes so as to take them, but the stone took his clothes and fled. Ms (Moses) picked up his stick and ran after the stone saying, 'O stone! give me my clothes!' till he reached a group of Ban Israel who saw him naked then, and found him the best of what Allh had created; and Allh cleared him of what they had accused him of. The stone stopped there and Ms (Moses) took and put his garment on and started hitting the stone with his stick. By Allh, the stone still has some traces of the hitting, three, four or five marks. This was what Allh [Subhnahu wa Ta'la] refers to in His Saying: 'O you who believe! Be not like those, who annoyed Ms (Moses), but Allh cleared him of that which they alleged and he was honourable before Allh...' " (V.33:69) [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/3404 (O.P.616)]
