And this life of the world is only an amusement and a play. Verily the Home of the Hereafter, that most surely is the life indeed, if they but knew.
When they embark on a ship, they call upon Allah, making their religion pure for Him only. But when We bring them safely to the land, behold, they immediately associate others (with Allah)!

Did they not see that We have made it (Mecca) a sacred territory secure (from violence), when men around it and their belongings were being snatched away (by force)? Do they still believe in the falsehood and deny the Blessing of Allah?
And who does more wrong than one who forges a lie against Allah, or gives the lie to (denies) the truth when it has come to him? Is Hell not a Dwelling place for the disbelievers?
And those who strive hard in Us (against their souls and Allah’s enemies), We will most certainly guide them to Our Ways (Sirat-i Mustakim) and Allah is most surely with the Al-Muhsinun (good doers).
After being vanquished, they shall be victorious in a nearby place.
Within a few (three to nine) years. Allah’s is the Command before and after this. On that day the believers will rejoice.
With the Help of Allah, He helps whom He wills and He is the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful (the One Who manifests Himself with His Name of the Most Merciful).
