(...Between the Inhabitants of Paradise and Hell) The following Ayats (signs) are randomly selected on this day as a reminder to those believers in the Unique Creator of all that exists, that seeking answers to daily problems are most efficient through the journey offered within the sacred texts of the Holy Quran, the latest divine words of revelation brought to mankind through the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Messenger of God.

In the Name of Allah the Merciful Beneficient


7:37         Who is more unjust than the one who invents a lie against [God] or denies [God's] Revelations? They will enjoy their appointed portion from worldly life as decreed in the Book*1 until, Our Emissaries come to them and take their souls,*2 saying: "Where are the things that your used to worship instead of [God]?" They will reply:" They have deserted us." And they will bear witness against themselves, confessing that they had been of the disbelievers;

7:38         [God] will state [to the disbelievers]: "Enter into the Fire among nations of the Jinns and mankind who passed away before you." Every time a nation enters, it curses its own kind, until they have all come together into the Fire, the last of them*3 says about the foremost of them "O, our Creator! [Pointing to them] these led us astray, so give them double torment of the Fire." [God] will state: "For all you there is double Torment, but you do not know."

7:39         Then the first of them,*4 will say to the last of them: "You were not better than us [in conduct], so taste the Torment for what you used to do!"

7:40                 Those who belied Our Signs and Miracles and rebelled against them, the gates of the heaven shall not be open to them nor they shall enter Paradise until a camel passes through the eye of a needle, [which is an impossible act]; thus, do We [punish] the sinners:

7:41         For them the Hell Fire shall be their bed and [also] above them their coverings shall be the Hell Fire: Thus



1- The Book of Ordainment

2- The Angels of death

3- The followers

4- The ringleaders of disbelief
