entertainment of the unbelievers.

103. Say: Shall We inform you of the greatest losers in (their) deeds?

104. (These are) they whose labour is lost in this world’s life and they think that they are well-versed in skill of the work of hands.*

105. These are they who disbelieve in the communications of their Lord and His meeting, so their deeds become null, and therefore We will not set up a balance for them on the day of resurrection.

106. Thus it is that their recompense is hell, because they disbelieved and held My communications and My apostles in mockery.

107. Surely (as for) those who believe and do good deeds, their place of entertainment shall be the gardens of paradise,

108. Abiding therein; they shall not desire removal from them.

109. Say: If the sea were ink for the words of my Lord, the sea would surely be consumed before the words of my Lord are exhausted, though We were to bring the like of that (sea) to add thereto.

110. Say: I am only a mortal like you; it is revealed to me that your god is one God, therefore whoever hopes to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds, and not join any one in the Service of his Lord.

* Usually clever and capable people disbelieve in Allah.
