[Saba 34:32] Those who were conceited will say to those who were subdued, “Did we stop you from the guidance after it came to you? In fact you yourselves were guilty!”
[Saba 34:33] Those who were subdued will say to those who were conceited, “Rather it was your deceit during night and day, for you commanded us to deny Allah and to set up equals to Him”; and inwardly they began regretting when they saw the punishment; and We placed shackles around the necks of the disbelievers; what recompense will they get except what they used to do?
[Saba 34:34] And whenever We sent a Herald of Warning to any town, its wealthy people said, “We disbelieve in what you have been sent with.”
[Saba 34:35] And they said, “We are greater in wealth and children; we will not be punished!”
[Saba 34:36] Proclaim “Indeed my Lord eases the sustenance for whomever He wills and restricts it for whomever He wills, but most people do not know.”
[Saba 34:37] And your wealth and your children are not capable of bringing you near to Us, but one who believes and did good deeds (is brought close); for them is double the reward – the recompense of their deeds and they are in high positions, in peace.
[Saba 34:38] And those who strive in Our signs in order to defeat, will be brought into the punishment.
[Saba 34:39] Say, “Indeed my Lord eases the sustenance
for whomever He wills among His bondmen, and restricts it for whomever
He wills; and whatever you spend in Allah's cause, He will restore it;
and He is the Best Sustainer.”
