[A/I`mran 3:187] And remember when Allah took a covenant from the People given the Book(s) that, “You shall definitely preach it to the people and not hide it”; so they flung it behind their backs and gained an abject price for it; so what a wretched bargain it is!

[A/I`mran 3:188] Do not ever think of those who rejoice for their deeds and wish to be praised without doing (good deeds) - do not ever think that they are safe from the punishment; and for them is a painful punishment.

[A/I`mran 3:189] And for Allah only is the kingship of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is Able to do all things.

Section 20

[A/I`mran 3:190] Undoubtedly in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day are signs for the intelligent.

[A/I`mran 3:191] Those who remember Allah while standing, and sitting, and reclining on their sides, and ponder about the creation of the heavens and the earth; “O our Lord! You have not created this without purpose; Purity is to You, therefore save us from the punishment of fire.”

[A/I`mran 3:192] “O our Lord! You have indeed given disgrace to whomever You put in the fire (of hell); and the unjust do not have any supporters.”

[A/I`mran 3:193] “O our Lord! We have heard a proclaimer calling towards faith, (saying) ‘Believe in your Lord’ so we have accepted faith; Our Lord! Therefore forgive us our sins, and wipe out our evil deeds, and make us die among the virtuous.”

[A/I`mran 3:194] “O our Lord! And give us what You have promised us through Your Noble Messengers, and do not humiliate us on the Day of Resurrection; indeed You do not break the promise.”
