191 Kill them wherever you overtake them
- Expel them from where they had expelled you.

When you disperse from Arafat, remember Allah at the Sacred Landmark. And remember Him as He has guided you. Although, before that, you were of those astray.

Among the people is he who says, “Our Lord, give us in this world,” yet he has no share in the Hereafter.
And among them is he who says, “Our Lord, give us goodness in this world, and goodness in the Hereafter, and protect us from the torment of the Fire.”
These will have a share of what they have earned. Allah is swift in reckoning.
Remember Allah during the designated days. But whoever hurries on in 2 days commits no wrong, and whoever stays on commits no wrong—provided he maintains righteousness. And obey Allah, and know that to Him you will be gathered.

And when he is told, “Beware of Allah,” his pride leads him to more sin. Hell is enough for him—a dreadful abode.
And among the people is he who sells himself seeking Allah’s approval. Allah is kind towards the servants.
