The Qurʾan What is This? A current English-language version of the Qur'an, published in 2004
Translation by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

74. Wrapped in his Cloak (38 – 56)

38Every soul is held in pledge for its deeds, 39but the Companions of the Right will stay 40in Gardens and ask 41about the guilty. 42’What drove you to the Scorching Fire?’ [they will ask] 43and they will answer, ‘We did not pray; 44we did not feed the poor; 45we indulged with others [in mocking the believers]; 46we denied the Day of Judgement 47until the Certain End came upon us.’ 48No intercessor's plea will benefit them now.

49What is the matter with them? Why do they turn away from the warning, 50like frightened asses 51fleeing from a lion? 52Each one of them demands that a scripture be sent down to him and unrolled before his very eyes—53No! Truly they have no fear of the life to come—54but truly this is a reminder. 55Let whoever wishes to take heed do so: 56they will only take heed if God so wishes. He is the Lord who should be heeded, the Lord of forgiveness.
