4- They will say: “It’s too late for us! What does this book mean for me? It omits nothing either small or large unless it is accounted for”. (18: 49)

5- Anyone who is given his book in his right hand will say: “here read my book”! (69:19)

6- However anyone who is given his book in his left hand will say:” It’s bad for me, if only my book had not been given me. (69:25)
