[Zumar 39:48] And the evils they earned appeared to them, and the thing they used to mock at descended upon them.
[Zumar 39:49] So when some hardship reaches man, he prays to Us; then later when We bestow a favour upon him, he says, “I obtained this only because of some knowledge”; in fact it is a test, but most of them do not have any knowledge.
[Zumar 39:50] Those before them also said the same, so their earnings did not benefit them at all.
[Zumar 39:51] Therefore the evils of their earnings befell them; and those who are unjust among them - soon the evils of the earnings will befall them, and they cannot escape.
[Zumar 39:52] Do they not know that Allah eases the sustenance for whomever He wills, and restricts it? Indeed in this are signs for the People who Believe.
[Zumar 39:53] Proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), “O my * slaves, who have wronged themselves, do not lose hope in Allah’s mercy; indeed Allah forgives all sins; indeed He only is the Oft Forgiving, the Most Merciful.” (All Muslims are truly the slaves of Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him.)
[Zumar 39:54] “And incline towards your Lord and submit to Him, before the punishment comes you and then you may not be helped.”
[Zumar 39:55] “And follow this, the best among all, which has been sent down towards you from your Lord, before the punishment comes suddenly upon you whilst you are unaware.”
[Zumar 39:56] So that no soul may say, “Alas! The failures
that I committed regarding Allah - and indeed I used to mock!”
