164. Say: "Shall I seek for (my) Cherisher other than God, when He is the Cherisher of

all things (that exist)? Every soul draws the meed of its acts on none but itself: no bearer

of burdens can bear of burdens can bear the burden of another. Your goal in the end is

towards God: He will tell you the truth of the things wherein ye disputed."

165. It is He Who hath made you (His) agents, inheritors of the earth: He hath raised you

in ranks, some above others: that He may try you in the gifts He hath given you: for thy

Lord is quick in punishment: yet He is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
