Sura 10
Aya 27
وَالَّذينَ كَسَبُوا السَّيِّئَاتِ جَزاءُ سَيِّئَةٍ بِمِثلِها وَتَرهَقُهُم ذِلَّةٌ ۖ ما لَهُم مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن عاصِمٍ ۖ كَأَنَّما أُغشِيَت وُجوهُهُم قِطَعًا مِنَ اللَّيلِ مُظلِمًا ۚ أُولٰئِكَ أَصحابُ النّارِ ۖ هُم فيها خالِدونَ

Muhammad Asad

But us for those who have done evil deeds - the recompense of an evil, deed shall be the like thereof:1- and - since they will have none to defend them against God - ignominy will overshadow them as though their faces were veiled by the night's own darkness:2 it is they who are destined for the fire, therein to abide.
  • In contrast with the multiple "rewards" for good deeds, the recompense of evil will be only commensurate with the deed itself. (See also note 46 on the last sentence of 41:50.)
  • Lit., "by a piece of the night, densely dark".
