71:2 He said, "My people, I am to you a clear warner."
71:3 "That you shall serve God and be aware of Him and obey."
71:4 "He shall forgive your sins and delay you to a predetermined time. When God's time comes, then it cannot be delayed, if you know."
71:5 He said, "My Lord, I have called on my people night and day."
71:6 "But my calling only drove them away!"
71:7 "Every time I called on them so that You may forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears and they covered their heads with their outer garments and they insisted, and they became greatly arrogant."

71:9 "Then I announced to them, and I spoke to them in secret."
71:10 "I said, Seek forgiveness from your Lord, for He was forgiving."

71:12 "He provides you with money and children, and He makes for you gardens, and He makes for you rivers."

(71:24) They have misguided many, but We only increase the wicked in misguidance.
(71:25) Because of their sins they were drowned, then they were admitted to the fire, and they could not find beside God any victor.
(71:27) "If you are to leave them, then they will misguide Your servants and they will only give birth to a wicked ingrate."
(71:28) "My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my home as an acknowledger, and the acknowledging men and the acknowledging women; and do not increase the wicked except in destruction."
