Verses

Bis-millahi ar-rahman, ar-raheem.
In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful.

All that exists on the earth will perish,[26] but the Face of your Lord will remain full of Majesty and Glory.[27] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[28] All who dwell in the heavens and the earth, implore Him for their needs, every day He is busy in some mighty task.[29] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[30] O you, the two burdens (jinns and mankind)! Soon We shall find the time to call you to account.[31] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[32] 55:[26-32]

You cannot get away except with Our authority.[33] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[34] The flames of fire and molten brass will be unleashed on you both, jinns and men, and you will not be able to defend yourselves.[35] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[36] When the heaven splits asunder and reddens like red-oil.[37] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[38] 55:[33-38]

On that Day neither man nor jinn will need be asked about his sins.[39] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[40] Because the sinners will be recognized by their faces and they shall be seized by their forelocks and their feet.[41] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[42] It will be said to them: “This is the hell which the criminals had denied.”[43] They shall wander to and fro between fire and hot boiling water.[44] Then, O jinns and men, which of your Lord’s favors will both of you deny?[45] 55:[39-45]

Ameen.
