Verily, those who believed, and then disbelieved, and then believed, and then disbelieved, and then increased in disbelief-it was not for God to forgive them, nor to guide them to a way.
Give tidings to the hypocrites that for them there is a painful chastisement.
Those whose states have alternated so that they rise and fall, then rise up again and then stumble -He has sealed their states in their unseemliness. The arrows of divine power have struck them by decree and the misery of fate has caught up with them as their final state. The Real (سبحانه) will not guide them to a purpose, nor lead them to good sense. “Give tidings to them of separation without end (fa-bashshirhum bi-l-furqati al-abadiyya) and tell them of punishment uninterrupted (wa-akhbirhum bi-l-ʿuqūbati al-sarmadiyya).”
