[Maryam 19:52] We called him from the right side of the mountain Tur, and brought him close to reveal Our secret.
[Maryam 19:53] And with Our mercy We bestowed upon him his brother Haroon, a Prophet.
[Maryam 19:54] And remember Ismail in the Book; he was indeed true to his promise and was a Noble Messenger, a Prophet.
[Maryam 19:55] He used to command his people to offer prayer and give charity, and was liked by his Lord.
[Maryam 19:56] And remember Idrees in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet.
[Maryam 19:57] And We lifted him to a high position. (Living with soul & body in heaven, after his death.)
[Maryam 19:58] It is these upon whom Allah has bestowed favour among the Prophets, from the descendants of Adam; and from those whom We boarded along with Nooh; and from the descendants of Ibrahim and Israel; and from those whom We guided and chose; when the verses of the Most Gracious were recited to them, they fell down, prostrating and weeping. (* Command of Prostration # 5.)
[Maryam 19:59] And after them came the unworthy successors who squandered prayer and pursued their own desires, so they will soon encounter the forest of Gai in hell.
[Maryam 19:60] Except those who repented and accepted faith and did good deeds - so these will enter heaven, and they will not be deprived * in the least. (* Of their due reward.)
[Maryam 19:61] Everlasting Gardens of Eden, which the Most Gracious has promised to His bondmen in the unseen; indeed His promise will come.
[Maryam 19:62] They will not hear any lewd talk in it, but only Peace; and in it for them is sustenance, every morning and evening.
[Maryam 19:63] It is the Paradise that We will bequeath to those among Our bondmen who remain pious.
[Maryam 19:64] (Said Angel Jibreel to
- peace and blessings be upon them) "And we angels do not come down
except by the command of your Lord; to Him only belongs all that is
of us and all that is behind us and all that is between them; and your
Lord is not forgetful."
