its keepers will say to them,
‘Peace be to you!
You are welcome!1
Enter it to remain [forever].’

who has fulfilled His promise to us
and made us heirs to the earth,
that we may settle in paradise
wherever we may wish!’
How excellent is the reward
of the workers [of righteousness]!
75 And you will see the angels
surrounding the Throne,
celebrating the praise of their Lord,
and judgment will be made between them with justice,
and it will be said, ‘All praise belongs to Allah,
the Lord of all the worlds!’

the All-mighty, the All-knowing,
