Sura Al-A'raf from 44 to 51

44. And the dwellers of Paradise will call out to the dwellers of the Fire ( saying ) : « We have indeed found true what our Lord had promised us; have you also found true, what your Lord promised ( warnings ) ? » They shall say: « Yes. » Then a crier will proclaim between them: « The Curse of Allâh is on the Zâlimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers ) . »
45. Those who hindered ( men ) from the Path of Allâh, and would seek to make it crooked, and they were disbelievers in the Hereafter.
46. And between them will be a ( barrier ) screen and on Al- A‘râf [ 1 ] ( a wall with elevated places ) will be men ( whose good and evil deeds would be equal in scale ) , who would recognise all ( of the Paradise and Hell people ) , by their marks ( the dwellers of Paradise by their white faces and the dwellers of Hell by their black faces ) , they will call out to the dwellers of Paradise, « Salâmun ‘Alaikum » ( Peace be on you ) , and at that time they ( men on Al- A‘râf ) will not yet have entered it ( Paradise ) , but they will hope to enter ( it ) with certainty.
47. And when their eyes will be turned towards the dwellers of the Fire, they will say: « Our Lord! Place us not with the people who are Zâlimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers ) . »
48. And the men on Al- A‘râf ( the wall ) will call unto the men whom they would recognise by their marks, saying: « Of what benefit to you were your great numbers ( and hoards of wealth ) , and your arrogance ( against Faith ) ? »
49. Are they those, of whom you swore that Allâh would never show them mercy. ( Behold! It has been said to them ) : « Enter Paradise, no fear shall be on you, nor shall you grieve. »
50. And the dwellers of the Fire will call to the dwellers of Paradise: « Pour on us some water or anything that Allâh has provided you with. » They will say: « Both ( water and provision ) Allâh has forbidden to the disbelievers. »
51. « Who took their religion as an amusement and play, and the life of the world deceived them. » So this Day We shall forget them as they forgot their meeting of this Day, and as they used to reject Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations ) .
