Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah Man(al-Insan)
76:1 Has there come on man a while of time when he was a thing unremembered
76:2 We created man of a sperm-drop, a mingling, and We made him hearing, seeing
76:3 Surely We guided him upon the way whether he be thankful or unthankful
76:4 Surely We have prepared for the unbelievers chains, fetters, and a Blaze
76:5 Surely the pious shall drink of a cup whose mixture is camphor
76:6 a fountain whereat drink the servants of God, making it to gush forth plenteously
76:7 They fulfil their vows, and fear a day whose evil is upon the wing
76:8 they give food, for the love of Him, to the needy, the orphan, the captive
76:9 'We feed you only for the Face of God; we desire no recompense from you, no thankfulness
76:10 for we fear from our Lord a frowning day, inauspicious
76:11 So God has guarded them from the evil of that day, and has procured them radiancy and gladness
76:12 and recompensed them for their patience with a Garden, and silk
76:13 therein they shall recline upon couches, therein they shall see neither sun nor bitter cold
76:14 near them shall be its shades, and its clusters hung meekly down
76:15 and there shall be passed around them vessels of silver, and goblets of crystal
76:16 crystal of silver that they have measured -- very exactly
76:17 And therein they shall be given to drink a cup whose mixture is ginger
76:18 therein a fountain whose name is called Salsabil
76:19 Immortal youths shall go about them; when thou seest them, thou supposest them scattered pearls
76:20 when thou seest them then thou seest bliss and a great kingdom
76:21 Upon them shall be green garments of silk and brocade; they are adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord shall give them to drink a pure draught
76:22 Behold, this is a recompense for you, and your striving is thanked.
76:23 Surely We have sent down the Koran on thee, a sending down
76:24 so be thou patient under the judgment of thy Lord, and obey not one of them, sinner or unbeliever
76:25 And remember the Name of thy Lord at dawn and in the evenin
76:26 and part of the night; bow down before Him and magnify Him through the long night
76:27 Surely these men love the hasty world, and leave be behind them a heavy day
76:28 We created them, and We strengthened their joints; and, when We will, We shall exchange their likes
76:29 Surely this is a Reminder; so he who will, takes unto his Lord a way
76:30 But you will not unless God wills; surely God is ever All-knowing, All-wise
76:31 For He admits into His mercy whomsoever He will; as for the evildoers, He has prepared for them a painful chastisement
