[Hajj 22:47] And they ask you for the punishment – they are impatient – and Allah will not make His promise untrue; and indeed a single day before Allah is like a thousand years in your calculation.

[Hajj 22:48] And to many a township did I give respite although they were oppressors; then I seized them; and towards Me is the return.


Section 7

[Hajj 22:49] Proclaim, "O mankind, I am for you only a clear Herald of Warning."

[Hajj 22:50] So those who believed and did good deeds, for them are forgiveness, and an excellent sustenance.

[Hajj 22:51] And those who strive in Our signs with the intention of disputing, are the people of fire.

[Hajj 22:52] And all the Noble Messengers or Prophets whom We sent before you – it occurred with all of them – that whenever they recited (the message) Satan included a bit (from his own speech) in their recitation to the people; so Allah obliterates what Satan includes and then Allah fortifies His verses; and Allah is All Knowing, Wise.

[Hajj 22:53] So that He may make what the devil includes a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease, and those whose hearts are hardened; indeed the unjust are extremely quarrelsome.

[Hajj 22:54] And so that the people given the knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord, in order that they may accept faith in it, therefore their hearts may humble before Him; and indeed Allah will guide the believers on the Straight Path.

[Hajj 22:55] And the disbelievers will always be in doubt of it, to the extent that the Last Day will suddenly come upon them, or will come upon them the punishment of a day the result of which is not at all good for them.
