Quran: Chapter 74  

The Quran literally means 'the recitation'.

It is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God. It is widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. Quranic chapters are called suras and verse ayahs.

Muslims believe the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad through the Angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 AD when Muhammad was 40 and concluding in 632 AD, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad, a proof of his prophethood.

5 And give not a thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allah's obedience as a favour to Allah). Quran 74:5
6 And be patient for the sake of your Lord (i.e. perform your duty to Allah)! Quran 74:6
7 Then, when the Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing); Quran 74:7

27 It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)! Quran 74:27
28 Burning the skins! Quran 74:28
29 Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). Quran 74:29
30 And We have set none but angels as guardians of the Fire, and We have fixed their number (19) only as a trial for the disbelievers, in order that the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) may arrive at a certainty [that this Quran is the truth as it agrees with their Books i.e. their number (19) is written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] and the believers may increase in Faith (as this Quran is the truth) and that no doubts may be left for the people of the Scripture and the believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) and the disbelievers may say: "What Allah intends by this (curious) example?" Thus Allah leads astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none can know the hosts of your Lord but He. And this (Hell) is nothing else than a (warning) reminder to mankind. Quran 74:30

52 Nay! But they fear not the Hereafter (from Allah's punishment). Quran 74:52
53 Nay, verily, this (Quran) is an admonition, Quran 74:53
54 So whosoever will (let him read it), and receive admonition (from it)! Quran 74:54
55 And they will not receive admonition unless Allah wills; He (Allah) is the One, deserving that mankind should be afraid of, and should be dutiful to Him, and should not take any Ilah (God) along with Him, and He is the One Who forgives (sins). Quran 74:55

3. Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context
4. Synthesis - A comparison with similar Texts to give a better contextual understanding
