And thus do We punish those who are wasteful (who exceed the limits) and do not believe in the Verses of their Lord. And certainly the torment of the Hereafter is severer and more lasting.

And do not extend your eyes toward that by which We have given enjoyment to some of them, its being but the splendor of worldly life by which We test them. And the provision of your Lord is better and more enduring.
And enjoin the Prayer on your family (and your followers) and be patient on it (the prayer). We do not ask you for subsistence. We do give your subsistence, and the (best) end is for the pious (the owners of piety, Takwâ).

And if We had destroyed them with a torment before this, they would certainly have said: “Our Lord! If only You had sent to us a Messenger, we should certainly have followed Your Verses, before we were humiliated and disgraced”.
Say: “Everyone is awaiting, therefore you wait as well! So you will come to know who is the follower of the Sıratı Seviyye (Sıratı Mustakîm) and who has attained Hidayet”.
