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),
Quran 38:54
Hell! Where they will burn, and worst (indeed) is that place to rest!
Quran 38:55
This is so! Then let them taste it, a boiling fluid and dirty wound discharges.
Quran 38:56

Quran 38:57

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "I am only a warner and there is no Ilah (God) except Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) the One, the Irresistible,
Quran 38:64
"The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving."
Quran 38:65
Say: "That (this Quran) is a great news,
Quran 38:66
"From which you turn away!
Quran 38:67
"I had no knowledge of the chiefs (angels) on high when they were disputing and discussing (about the creation of Adam).

Quran 38:72
Except Iblis (Satan) he was proud and was one of the disbelievers.
Quran 38:73
(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the high exalted?"
Quran 38:74

[Iblis (Satan)] said: "My Lord! Give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are resurrected."
Quran 38:78
(Allah) said: "Verily! You are of those allowed respite
Quran 38:79
"Till the Day of the time appointed."
Quran 38:80
[Iblis (Satan)] said: "By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all,
Quran 38:81
"Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (faithful, obedient, true believers of Islamic Monotheism)."
Quran 38:82
(Allah) said: "The Truth is, and the Truth I say,
Quran 38:83
That I will fill Hell with you [Iblis (Satan)] and those of them (mankind) that follow you, together."
Quran 38:84
Say (O Muhammad SAW): "No wage do I ask of you for this (the Quran), nor am I one of the Mutakallifun (those who pretend and fabricate things which do not exist).
Quran 38:85
"It (this Quran) is only a Reminder for all the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns).
