Translation

If thou dost marvel (at their want of faith), strange is their saying: "When we are (actually) dust, shall we indeed then be in a creation renewed?" They are those who deny their Lord! They are those round whose necks will be yokes (of servitude): they will be Companions of the Fire, to dwell therein (for aye)!

Those are the ones who disbelieve in their Lord; those - fetters shall be around their necks; and those, they shall be the inhabitants of the Hellfire, abiding
