Human is created of haste. I will show to you My Verses, therefore do not ask Me to hasten.
And they say: “When will these promises (come to pass) if you are truthful”?
If only those who disbelieved knew the time when they shall not be able to ward off the fire (Hell) from their faces nor from their backs, nor shall they be helped!

Say: “Who guards you by night and day from (the torment of) The Most Beneficent”? Nay, they are the ones who turn aside from the Remembrance (Dhikr) of their Lord.
Or, have they gods who can guard them from Us (from Our torment)? They shall not even be able to help themselves, nor shall they be looked after by Us.
Nay, We gave provision to those and their fathers as the life appeared to be prolonged to them. Do they not then see that We come to the earth to curtail it from its outlying borders? Are they then the victors?
