15,21The condition of those who hide, flee for not listening to the Qur’an, concealing the truth-departure of ignorance, arrival of enlightenment-ability to distinguish between good and evil36 is the evidence that, indeed this is the word of a noble messenger who is held in honor before the powerful, the owner of the greatest throne37 and obeyed, trusted.38 22Your companion is not the one who is mad/is supported by secret forces. 23Indeed, he saw Him on the clear horizon. 24And he is not withholder concerning the revelations given to him which nobody sees, hears, feels. 25And this is not the word that his thinking ability produced.39

26While this is the case, where are you going? 27,28This is nothing except a reminder to the worlds; for those among you who want to take the right course. 29You can not will except Allah, Rabb of all universes wills that you should think, remember.
