For the like of this let the workers work.
Is that (Paradise) better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum (a horrible tree in Hell)?
Truly We have made it (as) a trail for the Zalimun (polytheists, disbelievers, wrong-doers, etc.).
Verily, it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hell-fire,
The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of Shayatin (devils);
Truly, they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
Then on the top of that they will be given boiling water to drink so that it becomes a mixture (of boiling water and Zaqqum in their bellies).
Then thereafter, verily, their return is to the flaming fire of Hell.
Verily, they found their fathers on the wrong path;
So they (too) made haste to follow in their footsteps!
And indeed most of the men of old went astray before them;
And indeed We sent among them warners (Messengers);
Then see what was the end of those who were warned (but heeded not).
Except the chosen slaves of Allah (faithful, obedient, and true believers of Islamic Monotheism).
And indeed Nuh (Noah) invoked Us, and We are the Best of those who answer (the request).
And We rescued him and his family from the great distress (i.e. drowning),
And, his progeny, them We made the survivors (i.e. Shem, Ham and Japheth).
And left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations to come in later times:
Salamun (peace) be upon Nuh (Noah) (from Us) among the"Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!"
Verily, thus We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers - see V.2:112).
