One of them will say, “I once had a companion ˹in the world˺ who used to ask ˹me˺, ‘Do you actually believe ˹in resurrection˺?When we are dead and reduced to dust and bones, will we really be brought to judgment?’”He will ˹then˺ ask, “Would you care to see ˹his fate˺?”Then he ˹and the others˺ will look and spot him in the midst of the Hellfire.He will ˹then˺ say, “By Allah! You nearly ruined me.Had it not been for the grace of my Lord, I ˹too˺ would have certainly been among those brought ˹to Hell˺.

قَالَ قَآئِلٌۭ مِّنْهُمْ إِنِّى كَانَ لِى قَرِينٌۭ ‎
‏يَقُولُ أَءِنَّكَ لَمِنَ ٱلْمُصَدِّقِينَ ‎
‏أَءِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًۭا وَعِظَمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَدِينُونَ ‎
‏قَالَ هَلْ أَنتُم مُّطَّلِعُونَ ‎
‏فَٱطَّلَعَ فَرَءَاهُ فِى سَوَآءِ ٱلْجَحِيمِ ‎
‏قَالَ تَٱللَّهِ إِن كِدتَّ لَتُرْدِينِ ‎
‏وَلَوْلَا نِعْمَةُ رَبِّى لَكُنتُ مِنَ ٱلْمُحْضَرِينَ
The Surah speaks about the oneness of Allah in very strong terms. It talks about the teachings of various prophets of Allah. All of them preached the same message. It gives warnings to the non-believers that their plots against the message of Islam will not work. The truth will prevail.
ایک کہنے والا ان میں سے کہے گا کہ 
میرا ایک ہم نشین تھا (جو) کہتا تھا کہ 
بھلا تم بھی ایسی باتوں کے باور کرنے والوں میں ہو 
بھلا جب ہم مر گئے اور مٹی اور ہڈیاں ہوگئے 
تو کیا ہم کو بدلہ ملے گا؟ 
(پھر) کہے گا کہ 
بھلا تم (اسے) جھانک کر دیکھنا چاہتے ہو؟ 
(اتنے میں) وہ (خود) جھانکے گا تو اس کو وسط دوزخ میں دیکھے گا 
کہے گا کہ خدا کی قسم تُو تو مجھے ہلاک ہی کرچکا تھا 
اور اگر میرے پروردگار کی مہربانی نہ ہوتی تو میں بھی ان میں ہوتا جو (عذاب میں) حاضر کئے گئے ہیں
The Lord of the heaven and earth is one God. The mockers at the Prophet of God will one day see the truth. The Day of Judgment will dawn suddenly.
The guilty shall be punished and virtuous will be rewarded.
Allah delivered Prophet Noah from his enemies. Prophet Ibrahim’s encounter with idolatry. The test of Prophet Ibrahim. His willingness to sacrifice his son.
How Allah delivered Prophets Moses, Aaron, Elias and Lot and punished their enemies.
How Prophet Yunus was delivered from the belly of the whale. Angels are not Allah’s daughters; they are Allah’s servants. Allah’s messengers will succeed.
