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

Do not make any excuses today.
You are only being requited
for what you used to do.’
8 O you who have faith!
Repent to Allah with sincere repentance!
Maybe your Lord
will absolve you of your misdeeds
and admit you into gardens
with streams running in them,
on the day
when Allah will not let the Prophet down
and the faithful who are with him.
Their light will move swiftly before them
and on their right.
They will say, ‘Our Lord!
Perfect our light for us, and forgive us!
Indeed You have power over all things.’
9 O Prophet!
Wage jihād against the faithless and the hypocrites,
and be severe with them. Their refuge shall be hell,
and it is an evil destination.
10 Allah draws an example for the faithless:
the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot.
They were
under two of our righteous servants,
yet they betrayed them.
So they 1 did not avail them 2 in any way against Allah,

1 That is, Noah and Lot.

2 That is, the wives.
