And We granted him his family and a like [number] with them as mercy from Us and a reminder for those of understanding.

( 44 ) [We said], “And take in your hand a bunch [of grass] and strike with it and do not break your oath.” Indeed, We found him patient, an excellent servant. Indeed, he was one repeatedly turning back [to Allah].
( 45 ) And remember Our servants, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – those of strength and [religious] vision.
( 46 ) Indeed, We chose them for an exclusive quality: remembrance of the home [of the Hereafter].
( 47 ) And indeed they are, to Us, among the chosen and outstanding.
( 48 ) And remember Ishmael, Elisha and Dhul-Kifl, and all are among the outstanding.
( 49 ) This is a reminder. And indeed, for the righteous is a good place of return
( 50 ) Gardens of perpetual residence, whose doors will be opened to them.
( 51 ) Reclining within them, they will call therein for abundant fruit and drink.
( 52 ) And with them will be women limiting [their] glances and of equal age.
( 53 ) This is what you, [the righteous], are promised for the Day of Account.
( 54 ) Indeed, this is Our provision; for it there is no depletion.
( 55 ) This [is so]. But indeed, for the transgressors is an evil place of return –
( 56 ) Hell, which they will [enter to] burn, and wretched is the resting place.
( 57 ) This – so let them taste it – is scalding water and [foul] purulence.
( 58 ) And other [punishments] of its type [in various] kinds.
( 59 ) [Its inhabitants will say], “This is a company bursting in with you. No welcome for them. Indeed, they will burn in the Fire.”
( 60 ) They will say, “Nor you! No welcome for you. You, [our leaders], brought this upon us, and wretched is the settlement.”
( 61 ) They will say, “Our Lord, whoever brought this upon us – increase for him double punishment in the Fire.”
