And when We raised the Mount over them to be a shadow, they thought that it was going to fall down on them. Hold firmly to what We have given you and remember (fulfill) what is in it (commands and prohibitions) so that you may be the owners of piety (Takwâ).
And when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their backs their progeny and made them bear witness against their own souls. (Allah said:) “Am I not your Lord”? They said: “Yes, (You are our Lord) we bear witness”, lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: “Verily, we were heedless of this”.
Or lest you should say: “It was only our fathers aforetime who associated others (with Allah) and we were an offspring after them”. Will you then destroy us for what the vain doers did?
And thus do We explain Our Verses in detail, so that they may return (to Allah).
And read (explain) to them the narrative of him to whom We gave Our Verses. Then he detached himself from them, so Satan caused him to depend on him (followed him up) and he became of those who went astray (harmed himself being rebellious).
And if We had willed, We would certainly have exalted him with it (Our Verses). But he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire (vices of his soul). So his parable is as the parable of a dog: “If you pay attention to him he pants, and if you leave him alone he still pants”. This is the parable of the people who deny Our Verses. Therefore relate the narrative that they may reflect.
Evil is the likeness of the people who reject Our Verses. And (they) wronged their own souls.
Whomsoever Allah guides (whomsoever Allah causes to reach Himself) he is the one who has attained to Guidance (Hidayet). And whomsoever is left in Misguidance, these are the losers (who have caused their souls to fall into Loss).
