6- And verily Judgment and Justice must indeed come to pass.

10- Woe to the falsehood-mongers,-
11- Those who (flounder) heedless in a flood of confusion;
12- They ask, “When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?”
13- (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (and tested) over the Fire!
14- “Taste ye your trial! This is what ye used to ask to be hastened!”

21- As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see?
22- And in heavens is your Sustenance, as (also) that which ye are promised.
23- Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other.
