57:13  The day the hypocrites, men and women will say to those who believed, 'Wait for us, that we may kindle from your light.' It will be said, 'Return behind you and seek light.' And a wall will be set forth between them, having a gate; in its inner side is the mercy and towards its outer side is the punishment.
57:14  They shall cry out to them, 'Were we not with you?' They shall say, 'Yes indeed; but you led yourselves to temptation, and you waited, and you doubted, and the wishful thinking deceived you until the command of God came, And the deceiver deceived you about God.

57:20  Know that the worldly life is only play, and diversion, and adornment, and boasting between you, and competition about numbers in wealth and children. Like a similitude of rain, its plants pleased the sowers; then it withers, and you see it yellow; then it becomes grit. And in the hereafter is severe punishment, and forgiveness from God and pleasure. And the worldly life is not except the provision of deception.
57:21  Race towards forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden, whose breadth is as the breadth of the sky and the earth, prepared for those who believe in God and His messengers. That is God's grace, He gives it to whom He wills, and God is the possessor of great grace.

57:25  Certainly, We sent Our messengers with the clear proofs; and We sent down with them the Book and the Balance that mankind may uphold justice; and We sent down iron in which is severe violence and advantages for mankind, and that God might know who helps Him, and His messengers in the unseen. Surely, God is strong, mighty.
57:26  And certainly, We sent Noah and Abraham; and placed in their offspring prophethood and the Book; and some of them are guided, and many of them are disobedient.
57:27  Then We followed up their footsteps with our messengers; and We followed them up with Jesus, son of Mary; and We gave him the Gospel; and We placed in the hearts of those who followed him pity and mercy. But monasticism, they invented it - We did not prescribe it for them - except seeking the pleasure of God; and they observed it not its right observance. So We gave those of them who believed their reward; and many of them are disobedient.
