them to the way to hell.

24. And stop them, for they shall be questioned:

25. What is the matter with you that you do not help each other?

26. Nay! on that day they shall be submissive.

27. And some of them shall advance towards others, questioning each other.

28. They shall say: Surely you used to come to us from the right side.

29. They shall say: Nay, you (yourselves) were not believers:

30. And we had no authority over you, but you were an inordinate people:

31. So the sentence of our Lord has come to pass against us: (now) we shall surely taste:

32. So we led you astray, for we ourselves were erring.

33. So they shall on that day be sharers in the chastisement one with another.

34. Surely thus do We deal with the guilty.

35. Surely they used to behave proudly when it was said to them: There is no god but Allah:

36. And to say: What! shall we indeed give up our gods for the sake of a mad poet?

37. Nay: he has come with the truth and verified the apostles.

38. Most surely you will taste the painful punishment.

39. And you shall not be rewarded except (for) what you did.
