M. H. Shakir, The Holy Quran; Arabic Text and English Translation; Foot-notes by M. H. Shakir (1974)

rich. I will record what they say, and their killing the prophets unjustly, and I will say: Taste the chastisement of burning.

181. This is for what your own hands have sent before and because Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants.

182. (Those are they) who said: Surely Allah has enjoined us that we should not believe in any apostle until he brings us an offering which the fire consumes. Say: Indeed, there came to you apostles before me with clear arguments and with that which you demand; why then did you kill them if you are truthful?

183. But if they reject you, so indeed were rejected before you apostles who came with clear arguments and scriptures and the illuminating book.

184. Every soul shall taste of death, and you shall only be paid fully your reward on the resurrection day; then whoever is removed far away from the fire and is made to enter the garden, he indeed has attained the object; and the life of this world is nothing but a provision of vanities.
