{95:7} So what yet causes you to deny the Recompense?

الدين is one of the words that are hard to translate. It can mean "religion," "way of life", "moral law" or "judgment". I chose to translate it in 1:4, as "Settlement", but here it makes more sense, given the context, to translate it "[God's] religion."

{95:7} So, what yet causes you to belie the religion [of God]?
