Surely, We have sent down to you the Book for the mankind with the truth. So whoever reaches Hidayet, it is for his own soul and whoever remains in Misguidance, he is in Misguidance against himself. And you are not a surrogate upon them.
Allah causes the physical bodies to die at the time of death. And those who are in their sleep, they are not dead, then He retains the one who will be decreed to die (the physical body of the person in the state of sleep) and sends the other (the soul) till an appointed term (wherever it desires to go in a dream). Most surely there are signs (lessons) in this for a people who reflect.
Or have they taken intercessors besides Allah? Say: “Even if they have power over nothing whatsoever and are not mindful”?
Say: “Allah’s is the intercession altogether. The dominion of the heavens and the earth is His. Then to Him you shall be brought back”.
And when Allah’s Oneness is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter (in reaching Allah before death) get shivered with hatred. When those besides Him are mentioned, they rejoice.
Say: “O My Allah! You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth, All-Knower of the Unseen and the Seen! You will judge between your servants about that in which they used to differ”.
And if the wrong-doers had all that is in the earth and the like of it with it, they would certainly offer it as ransom (to be saved) from the evil of the torment on the Day of Resurrection. And there will become apparent to them from Allah what they had not been reckoning.
