Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

whereupon you will not be helped.
55 And follow
the best of what has been sent down
to you from your Lord,
before the punishment overtakes you suddenly
while you are unaware.’
56 Lest anyone should say,
‘Alas for my negligence
in the vicinage of Allah!
Indeed I was among those who ridiculed.’
57 Or say, ‘Had Allah guided me
I would have surely been among the Godwary!’
58 Or say, when he sights the punishment,
‘If only there had been a second chance for me
I would be among the virtuous!’
59 ‘Yes, My signs certainly came to you,
but you denied them and acted arrogantly
and you were among the faithless.’
60 On the Day of Resurrection you will see
those who attributed lies to Allah
with their faces blackened.
Is not the [final] abode of the arrogant in hell?
61 Allah will deliver those who were Godwary
with their salvation.
No ill shall touch them,
nor will they grieve.

62 Allah is creator of all things,
and He watches over all things.
63 To Him belong the keys of the heavens
