Hizb 49
Juz 25
And in the past We gave Moses the Book and yet it became an object of dispute. If your Lord's decree had not gone forth before, a decisive judgement would have been made among them, once and for all. Surely they are in a disquieting doubt about it. (45) Whoso doeth right it is for his soul, and whoso doeth wrong it is against it. And thy Lord is not at all a tyrant to His slaves. (46) ۞ The knowledge of the Last Day is directed towards Him; and no fruit comes out from its cover, and nor does any female conceive or give birth, but with His knowledge; and on the day when He will call out to them, “Where are My partners?” They will say, “We have told you that none among us can testify.” (47) And so, all that they were wont to invoke aforetime will have forsaken them; and they shall know for certain that there is no escape for them. (48) The human being never tires of asking for good, but if he is afflicted by hardship, he despairs and gives up all hope. (49) And truly, if We give him a taste of mercy from us, after some adversity (severe poverty or disease, etc.) has touched him, he is sure to say: "This is for me (due to my merit), I think not that the Hour will be established. But if I am brought back to my Lord, Surely, there will be for me the best (wealth, etc.) with Him. Then, We verily, will show to the disbelievers what they have done and We shall make them taste a severe torment. (50) When We bestow Our favour upon man, he turns away and waxes proud; but when a misfortune touches him, he is full of supplication. (51) HAVE YOU given thought [to how you will fare] if this be truly [a revelation] from God, the while you deny its truth? Who could be more astray than one who places himself [so] deeply in the wrong? (52) We shall show them Our signs in the horizons and in themselves, till it is clear to them that it is the truth. Suffices it not as to thy Lord, that He is witness over everything? (53) Lo! they are in doubt concerning the meeting with their Lord: Lo! He is of everything the Encompasser! (54)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
