Those who will be loosers in the Hereafter
Whoso chooseth Satan for a patron instead of Allah
is verily a loser and his loss is manifest.
Those who ruin their own souls will not believe
They are losers who besottedly have slain their
children without knowledge, and have forbidden
that which Allah bestowed upon them, inventing
a lie against Allah. They indeed have gone
astray and are not guided
But the chieftains of his people, who were
disbelieving, said: If ye follow Shueyb,
then truly ye shall be the losers
He said: My Lord! Lo! in Thee do I seek refuge
(from the sin) that I should ask off Thee that
whereof I have no knowledge. Unless Thou forgive
me and have mercy on me I shall be among the lost.
He said: O my people! Bethink you: if I am (acting) on
clear proof from my Lord and there hath come unto me
a mercy from Him, who will save me from Allah if
I disobey Him? Ye would add to me naught save perdition.
They said: If the wolf should devour him when
we are (so strong) a band, then surely
we should have already perished.
And We reveal of the Quran that which is a healing and
a mercy for believers though it increase the evil doers
in naught save ruin.
Say: Shall We inform you who will be the greatest
losers by their works?
And they wished to set a snare for him,
but We made them the greater losers.
And among mankind is he who worshippeth Allah upon
a narrow marge so that if good befalleth him he is
content therewith, but if a trial befalleth him,
he falleth away utterly. He loseth both the world
and the Hereafter. That is the sheer loss
Give full measure, and be not of
those who give less (than the due)
He it is who hath made you regents in the earth;
so he who disbelieveth, his disbelief be on his
own head. Their disbelief increaseth for the
disbelievers, in their Lord's sight, naught
save abhorrence. Their disbelief increaseth
for the disbelievers naught save loss
Say: The losers will be those who lose themselves
and their housefolk on the Day of Resurrection.
Ah, that will be the manifest loss!
And verily it hath been revealed unto thee as
unto those before thee (saying): If thou
ascribe a partner to Allah thy work will
fail and thou indeed wilt be among the
Verily We sent messengers before thee, among
them those of whom We have told thee, and some
of whom We have not told thee; and it was not
given to any messenger that he should bring a
portent cave by Allah's leave, but when
Allah's commandment cometh (the cause) is
judged aright, and the followers of vanity
will then be lost
But their faith could not avail them when they
saw Our doom. This is Allah's law which hath
ever taken course for his Bondsmen. And then
the disbelievers will be ruined.
That, your thought which ye did think about
your Lord, hath ruined you; and ye find
yourselves (this day) among the lost
And thou wilt see them exposed to (the Fire),
made humble by disgrace, and looking with
veiled eyes. And those who believe will
say: Lo! the (eternal) losers are they who
lose themselves and their housefolk on the
Day of Resurrection. Lo! are not the
wrong doers in perpetual torment?
And unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of
the heavens and the earth; and on the day
when the Hour riseth, on that day those
who follow falsehood will be lost
But observe the measure strictly,
nor fall short thereof
So that it tasted the ill effects of its
conduct, and the consequence of its conduct
Noah said: My Lord! they have disobeyed me
and followed one whose wealth and children
increase him in naught save ruin
They say: Then that would be a vain proceeding.
But if they measure unto them or weigh for them,
they cause them loss.
