53:38 None can carry the burdens of another.
53:39 The human being will have what he sought (saʿā).
53:40 His works (saʿyahu) will be shown.
53:41 Then he will be paid fully for such works.
21:94 So whosoever does good work (l-ṣāliḥāti) and he is an acknowledger, then his efforts (lisaʿyihi) will not be rejected and We will record it for him.
