And remember Our servants: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the men of strength and insight.We truly chose them for the honour of proclaiming the Hereafter.And in Our sight they are truly among the chosen and the finest.Also remember Ismael, Al-yasaa, and         Zul-Kifl. All are among the best.This is ˹all˺ a reminder. And the righteous will certainly have an honourable destination:the Gardens of Eternity, whose gates will be open for them.There they will recline, calling for abundant fruit and drink.And with them will be maidens of modest gaze and equal age.This is what you are promised for the Day of Reckoning.This is indeed Our provision that will never end.Quran 38:45~54

وَٱذۡكُرۡ عِبَـٰدَنَاۤ إِبۡرَ ٰهِیمَ وَإِسۡحَـٰقَ وَیَعۡقُوبَ أُو۟لِی ٱلۡأَیۡدِی وَٱلۡأَبۡصَـٰرِ

إِنَّاۤ أَخۡلَصۡنَـٰهُم بِخَالِصَةࣲ ذِكۡرَى ٱلدَّارِ
وَإِنَّهُمۡ عِندَنَا لَمِنَ ٱلۡمُصۡطَفَیۡنَ ٱلۡأَخۡیَارِ
وَٱذۡكُرۡ إِسۡمَـٰعِیلَ وَٱلۡیَسَعَ وَذَا ٱلۡكِفۡلِۖ وَكُلࣱّ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَخۡیَارِ

هَـٰذَا ذِكۡرࣱۚ 
وَإِنَّ لِلۡمُتَّقِینَ لَحُسۡنَ  مَاٰبٍࣲۙ
جَنَّـٰتِ عَدۡنࣲ مُّفَتَّحَةࣰ لَّهُمُ ٱلۡأَبۡوَ ٰبُ

مُتَّكِءِینَ فِیهَا یَدۡعُونَ فِیهَا بِفَـٰكِهَةࣲ كَثِیرَةࣲ وَشَرَابࣲ
وَعِندَهُمۡ قَـٰصِرَ ٰتُ ٱلطَّرۡفِ أَتۡرَابٌ

هَـٰذَا مَا تُوعَدُونَ لِیَوۡمِ ٱلۡحِسَابِ
إِنَّ هَـٰذَا لَرِزۡقُنَا مَا لَهُۥ مِن نَّفَادٍ
The Surah talks about the basic message of all the Prophets and Messengers of Allah. They came to preach Tawhid.
The Prophet suffered and went through a lot of hardship in presenting Allah’s message.
Their enemies attacked them and persecuted them, but then finally it was the truth that prevailed and falsehood was defeated. Power and riches all come from Allah.
Some people become arrogant when they have power. But Allah gave the examples of David and Solomon who were great prophets as well as powerful kings. They obey Allah. Their riches did not corrupt them.
اور ہمارے بندوں، ابراہیمؑ اور اسحاقؑ اور یعقوبؑ کا ذکر کرو
بڑی قوت عمل رکھنے والے اور دیدہ ور لوگ تھے 
ہم نے اُن کو ایک خالص صفت کی بنا پر برگزیدہ کیا تھا، اور وہ دار آخرت کی یاد تھی 
یقیناً ہمارے ہاں ان کا شمار چنے ہوئے نیک اشخاص میں ہے 
اور اسماعیلؑ اور الیسع اور ذوالکفلؑ کا ذکر کرو، یہ سب نیک لوگوں میں سے تھے
یہ ایک ذکر تھا (اب سنو کہ) متقی لوگوں کے لیے یقیناً بہترین ٹھکانا ہے 
ہمیشہ رہنے والی جنتیں جن کے دروازے اُن کے لیے کھلے ہوں گے 
ان میں وہ تکیے لگائے بیٹھے ہوں گے، 
خوب خوب فواکہ اور مشروبات طلب کر رہے ہوں گے 
اور ان کے پاس شرمیلی ہم سن بیویاں ہوں گی
یہ وہ چیزیں ہیں جنہیں حساب کے دن عطا کرنے کا تم سے وعدہ کیا جا رہا ہے 
یہ ہمارا رزق ہے جو کبھی ختم ہونے والا نہیں
Then, in v. 6-19 it has been said that whether man is conscious of this fact or not, he in any case is moving to the destination where he will appear and stand before his Lord. At that time all human beings will divide into two parts: first those whose records will be given in their right hands: they will be forgiven without any severe reckoning; second those whose records will be given them behind their back. They will wish that they should die somehow, but they will not die; instead they will be cast into Hell. They will be met with this fate because in the world they remained lost in the misunderstanding that they would never have to appear before God to render an account of their deeds, whereas their Lord was watching whatever they were doing and there was no reason why they should escape the accountability for their deeds. Their moving gradually from the life of the world to the meting out of rewards and punishments in the Hereafter was as certain as the appearance of twilight after sunset, the coming of the night after the day, the returning of men and animals to their respective abodes at night and the growing of the crescent into full moon. In conclusion, the disbelievers who repudiate the Qur’an instead of bowing down to God when they hear it, have been forewarned of a grievous punishment and the good news of limitless rewards has been given to the believers and the righteous.
