Leave me alone with him I have created and for whom I have made extensive wealth2 and sons that he may look upon, and for whom I have smoothed things down. Then he desires that I should increase! nay, verily, he is hostile to our signs! I will drive him up a hill! Then he reflected and planned! May he be killed,how he planned! Again, may he be killed,how he planned! Then he looked; then he frowned and scowled; then he retreated and was big with pride and said, This is only magic exhibited! this is only mortal speech!I will broil him in hell-fire! and what shall make thee know what hell-fire is? It will not leave and will not let alone. It scorches the flesh; over it are nineteen (angels).
We have made only angels guardians of the fire, and we have only made their number a trial to those who misbelieve; that those who have been given the Book may be certain, and that those who believe may be increased in faith; and that those who have been given the Book and the believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts is sickness, and the misbelievers may say, What does God mean by this as a parable?
They shall say, We werent of those who prayed; we didnt feed the poor; but we did plunge into discussion with those who plunged, and we called the judgment day a lie until the certainty4 did come to us!
