Sura Al-A'raf from 52 to 57

52. Certainly, We have brought them a Book ( the Qur’ân ) which We have explained in detail with knowledge, - a guidance and a mercy to a people who believe.
53. Await they just for the final fullfilment of the event? On the Day the event is finally fulfilled ( i.e. the Day of Resurrection ) , those who neglected it before will say: « Verily, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth, now are there any intercessors for us that they might intercede on our behalf? Or could we be sent back ( to the first life of the world ) so that we might do ( good ) deeds other than those ( evil ) deeds which we used to do? » Verily, they have lost their ownselves ( i.e. destroyed themselves ) and that which they used to fabricate ( invoking and worshipping others besides Allâh ) has gone away from them.
54. Indeed your Lord is Allâh, Who created the heavens and the earth in Six Days, and then He rose over ( Istawâ ) the Throne ( really in a manner that suits His Majesty ) . He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly, and ( He created ) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command. Surely, His is the Creation and Commandment. Blessed is Allâh, the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind, jinn and all that exists ) !
55. Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He likes not the aggressors.
56. And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, and invoke Him with fear and hope. Surely, Allâh’s Mercy is ( ever ) near unto the good- doers.
57. And it is He Who sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings, going before His Mercy ( rain ) . Till when they have carried a heavy- laden cloud, We drive it to a land that is dead, then We cause water ( rain ) to descend thereon. Then We produce every kind of fruit therewith. Similarly, We shall raise up the dead, so that you may remember or take heed.
