|THE KORAN - EXTRACT|
| .....But for fear that all mankind would have become a
single people of unbelievers, verily we would certainly have given to
those who believe not in the God of Mercy roofs of silver to their
houses, and silver stairs to ascend by;
And doors of silver to their houses, and couches of silver to
And ORNAMENTS OF GOLD: for all these are merely the good
things of the present life; but the next life doth thy Lord reserve for
those who fear Him.
And whoso shall withdraw from the Warning of the God of Mercy, we
will chain a Satan to him, and he shall be his fast companion:
For the Satan's will turn men aside from the Way, who yet shall
deem themselves rightly guided;
Until when man shall come before us, he shall say, "O Satan,
would that between me and thee were the distance of the East and West.
"And a wretched companion is a Satan.
But it shall not avail you on that day, because ye were unjust:
partners shall ye be in the torment.
What! Canst thou then make the deaf to hear, or guide the blind
and him who is in palpable error?
Whether therefore we take thee off by death, surely will we avenge
ourselves on them;
Or whether we make thee a witness of the accomplishment of that with which we threatened them, we will surely gain the mastery over them.....
