And Allah took a covenant from those who had been given the Book, saying: “You shall certainly make it known to the people and you shall not hide it”; but they cast it (the covenant) behind their backs and sold it for a small price; so evil is that which they purchased.
Do not reckon that those (of the People of the Book, saying it is from the Book) who rejoice for what they have brought (for what they have done by hiding the truth and not explaining it) and love that they should be praised for what they have not done-so, by no means think them to be safe from the torment. And for them there is a painful torment.
And Allah’s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and Allah is Powerful over all things.
Most surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day there are absolutely Signs for Ulûl elbâb (those who are the owners of the innermost secret treasures of Allah because of their attaining to a continuous remembrance of Allah).
Those (ulûl elbab,those who are the owners of the innermost secret treasures of Allah) who remember (repeat the Name of) Allah standing and sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth. (And say) “Our Lord! You have not created (all) this in vain, Glory be to You; Protect us then from the torment of the Fire”!
Our Lord! Surely whomsoever You make enter the Fire, You have brought him to disgrace and for the wrong-doers there are any no helpers.
Our Lord! We have heard a caller calling to the Faith (saying): Believe in your Lord, so we did believe (submitting to the caller became amenu); our Lord! Forgive us therefore our sins and cover our evil deeds and make us die along with Al-Abrâr (who reach Allah and become a friend of Allah, worthy of Heaven).
Our Lord! Grant us what You did promise to us through Your Messengers, and do not abase us on the Day of Resurrection. You never break Your Promise.
