(Allah said to him):"Strike the ground with your foot: This is a spring of water to wash in, cool and a (refreshing) drink."

And We gave him (back) his family, and along with them the like thereof, as a Mercy from Us, and a Reminder for those who understand.

"And take in your hand a bundle of thin grass and strike therewith (your wife), and break not your oath . Truly! We found him patient. How excellent (a) slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance (to Us)!

And remember Our slaves, Ibrahim (Abraham), Ishaque (Isaac), and Ya"qub (Jacob), (all) owners of strength (in worshipping Us) and (also) of religious understanding.

Verily, We did choose them by granting them (a good thing, i.e.) the remembrance of the home [in the Hereafter and they used to make the people remember it, and also they used to invite the people to obey Allah and to do good deeds for the Hereafter].

And they are with Us, verily, of the chosen and the best!

And remember Isma"il (Ishmael), Al-Yasa"a (Elisha), and Dhul-Kifl (Isaiah), all are among the best.

This it is what you (Al-Muttaqun - the pious) are promised for the Day of Reckoning!

(It will be said to them)! Verily, this is Our Provision which will never finish;

This is so! And for the Taghun (transgressors, disobedient to Allah and His Messenger - disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, criminals, etc.), will be an evil final return (Fire),

Hell! Where they will burn, and worst (indeed) is that place to rest!

This is so! Then let them taste it, a boiling fluid and dirty wound discharges.

And other torments of similar kind, all together!

This is a troop entering with you (in Hell), no welcome for them! Verily, they shall burn in the Fire!

(The followers of the misleaders will say):"Nay, you (too)! No welcome for you! It is you (misleaders) who brought this upon us (because you misled us in the world), so evil is this place to stay in!"
