78: An-Naba (النبإ)
1: Of what do they ask one another?
2: About the great event,
3: About which they differ?
4: Nay! they shall soon come to know
5: Nay! Nay! they shall soon know.
6: Have We not made the earth an even expanse?
7: And the mountains as projections (thereon)?
8: And We created you in pairs,
9: And We made your sleep to be rest (to you),
10: And We made the night to be a covering,
11: And We made the day for seeking livelihood.
12: And We made above you seven strong ones,
13: And We made a shining lamp,
14: And We send down from the clouds water pouring forth abundantly,
15: That We may bring forth thereby corn and herbs,
16: And gardens dense and luxuriant.
17: Surely the day of decision is (a day) appointed:
18: The day on which the trumpet shall be blown so you shall come forth in hosts,
19: And the heaven shall be opened so that it shall be all openings,
20: And the mountains shall be moved off so that they shall remain a mere semblance.
21: Surely hell lies in wait,
22: A place of resort for the inordinate,
23: Living therein for ages.
24: They shall not taste therein cool nor drink
25: But boiling and intensely cold water,
26: Requital corresponding.
27: Surely they feared not the account,
28: And called Our communications a lie, giving the lie (to the truth).
29: And We have recorded everything in a book,
30: So taste! for We will not add to you aught but chastisement.
31: Surely for those who guard (against evil) is achievement,
32: Gardens and vineyards,
33: And voluptuous women of equal age;
34: And a pure cup.
35: They shall not hear therein any vain words nor lying.
36: A reward from your Lord, a gift according to a reckoning:
37: The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, the Beneficent Allah, they shall not be able to address Him.
38: The day on which the spirit and the angels shall stand in ranks; they shall not speak except he whom the Beneficent Allah permits and who speaks the right thing.
39: That is the sure day, so whoever desires may take refuge with his Lord.
40: Surely We have warned you of a chastisement near at hand: the day when man shall see what his two hands have sent before, and the unbeliever shall say: O! would that I were dust!
