15. A similitude of the Garden which those who keep their duty (to Allah) are promised: 
Therein are rivers of water unpolluted, and rivers of milk whereof the flavor changeth 
not, and rivers of wine delicious to the drinkers, and rivers of clear run honey; 
therein for them is every kind of fruit, with pardon from their Lord. (Are those who 
enjoy all this) like those who are immortal in the Fire and are given boiling water 
to drink so that it teareth their bowels?
Yusuf Ali
15. (Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised: in it are rivers 
of water incorruptible: rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine 
a joy to those who drink; and rivers of honey pure and clear.  In it there are for them 
all kinds of fruits and Grace from their Lord.  (Can those in such Bliss) be compared 
to such as shall dwell for ever in the Fire and be given to drink boiling water so that 
it cuts up their bowels (to pieces)?

16. Among them are some who give ear unto thee (Muhammad) till, when they go forth from 
thy presence, they say unto those who have been given knowledge: What was that he said 
just now? Those are they whose hearts Allah hath sealed, and they follow their own lusts.
Yusuf Ali
16. And among them are men who listen to thee but in the end when they go out from thee 
they say to those who have received Knowledge: "What is it he said just then?" Such are 
men whose hearts Allah has sealed and who follow their own lusts.

17. While as for those who walk aright, He addeth to their guidance, and giveth them 
their protection (against evil).
Yusuf Ali
17. But to those who receive Guidance He increases (the light of) Guidance and bestows 
on them their Piety and Restraint (from evil).

18. Await they aught save the Hour, that it should come upon them unawares? And the 
beginnings thereof have already come. But how, when it hath come upon them, can they 
take their warning?
Yusuf Ali
18. Do they then only wait for the Hour that it should come on them of a sudden? But 
already have come some tokens thereof and when it (actually) is on them how can they 
benefit then by their admonition?

19. So know (O Muhammad) that there is no God save Allah, and ask forgiveness for thy 
sin and for believing men and believing women. Allah knoweth (both) your place of 
turmoil and your place of rest.
Yusuf Ali
19. Know therefore that there is no god but Allah and ask forgiveness for the fault 
and for the men and women who believe: for Allah knows how ye move about and how ye 
dwell in your homes.
