Allah increases for them from His Virtue to recompense them in a best way for what they did; and Allah gives sustenance to whom He wills without measure.
And those who disbelieve, their deeds are like a mirage in a desert. The thirsty one deemed it to be water; when he came up to it, he found it to be nothing; and there he found Allah (against him). So (Allah) paid him his reckoning in full. And Allah is Swift at reckoning.
Or like utter darkness in a vast deep sea, overwhelmed with waves topped by waves, which is topped by dark clouds. Darkness upon darkness, when he stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! And he for whom Allah has not appointed light, for him there is no light.
Did you not see that the heavens and the earth and the birds in lines glorify Allah? They all know the prayer and their glorification. And Allah is All-Knowing of what they do.
And Allah’s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and to Allah is the return.
Do you not see that Allah drives clouds gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap of layers? Then you see He brings forth the rain from their midst. And He sends down from the sky hail mountains. So strikes therewith whom He wills, and averts it from whom He wills. The vivid flash of its lightning almost takes away (blinds) the sight.
