was a thing unremembered?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

forth abundantly,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

for love of Him,

and hath made them find brightness and joy;

silk attire;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

(heat of) a sun nor bitter cold.

a pure drink.

Your endeavour (upon earth) hath found acceptance.

remembrance of) a grievous day.

We will, We can replace them, bringing others like them in their stead.

PICKTHAL: Lo! this is an Admonishment, that whosoever will may choose a way
unto his Lord.
