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

96. He said: I saw (Jibreel) what they did not see, so I took a handful (of the dust) from the footsteps of the messenger, then I threw it in the casting; thus did my soul commend to me.

97. He said: Begone then, surely for you it will be in this life to say, Touch (me) not; and surely there is a threat for you, which shall not be made to fail to you, and look at your god to whose worship you kept (so long); we will certainly burn it, then we will certainly scatter it a (wide) scattering in the sea.

98. Your God is only Allah, there is no god but He; He comprehends all things in (His) knowledge.

99. Thus do We relate to you (some) of the news of what has gone before; and indeed We have given to you a Reminder from Ourselves.

100. Whoever turns aside from it, he shall surely bear a burden on the day of resurrection,

101. Abiding in this (state), and evil will it be for them to bear on the day of resurrection:

102. On the day when the trumpet shall be blown, and We will gather the guilty, blue­ eyed, on that day;

103. They shall consult together secretly: You did tarry but ten (centuries).
