وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لَكَ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ أَحَاطَ بِالنَّاسِ ۚ وَمَا جَعَلْنَا الرُّؤْيَا الَّتِي أَرَيْنَاكَ إِلَّا فِتْنَةً لِّلنَّاسِ وَالشَّجَرَةَ الْمَلْعُونَةَ فِي الْقُرْآنِ ۚ وَنُخَوِّفُهُمْ فَمَا يَزِيدُهُمْ إِلَّا طُغْيَانًا كَبِيرًا –

اور جب کہہ دیا ہم نے تجھ سے کہ تیرے رب نے گھیر لیا ہے لوگوں کو ۹۲ اور وہ دکھلاوا جو تجھ کو دکھلایا ہم نے سو جانچنے کو لوگوں کے ۹۳ اور ایسے ہی وہ درخت جس پر پھٹکار ہے قرآن میں ۹۴ اور ہم انکو ڈراتے ہیں تو انکو زیادہ ہوتی ہے بری شرارت

And [remember, O Muhammad], when We told you, “Indeed, your Lord has encompassed the people.” And We did not make the sight which We showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the accursed tree [mentioned] in the Qur’an. And We threaten them, but it increases them not except in great transgression.
