Linda “iLHam” Barto rendition of Surah Man(al-Insan)
76:1 Has there not been a time over humanity when he/she was nothing –not even a mention?
76:2 We created humanity from a union of gametes so that We may test him/her. We gave him/her [the gifts of] hearing and sight.
76:3 We showed him/her the way, whether he/she is grateful or ungrateful.
76:4 For the unbelievers, We have prepared chains, yokes, and a blazing fire.
76:5 As for the righteous, they shall drink from a cup, a mix of [a soothing tonic of] camphor.
76:6 [It will be] from a fountain where the worshipers of Allah drink. It will flow in unhindered abundance.
76:7 (The righteous) perform vows [of spiritual service]. They fear the day from which dread flies far and wide.
76:8 They provide food, in spite of their own want for it. [They provide it] to the indigent, the orphan, and the captive.
76:9 “Truly, We feed you for the sake of Allah alone. We expect no reward or thanks from you.
76:10 “We fear from our Lord a day of severe difficulty [if we do not follow His will].”
76:11 But Allah will deliver them from the harm of that day and will shed over them radiance and joy.
76:12 Because they were patient, He will reward them with a garden and silk.
76:13 Reclining in (the garden) on raised thrones, they will experience neither the sun [ie, unbearable heat] nor excessive cold.
76:14 The shades [of the garden] will hang near them. Bunches of fruit will hang low and accessible.
76:15 Among them will be passed vessels of silver and goblets of crystal.
76:16 [They will be] crystal clear and with silver. They will determine however much they want.
76:17 They will be given to drink a cup, mixed with ginger.
76:18 [It will be] from a fountain called Seek the Way.
76:19 Around them will be immortal youths. If you saw them, you would think of them as scattered pearls [so unblemished are they].
76:20 When you look around, you will see a blissful and magnificent realm.
76:21 Upon (the believers) will be green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver. Their Lord will give them a pure and holy [non-intoxicating] drink.
76:22 Truly, this is a reward for you, and your endeavor is recognized.
76:23 We have bestowed upon you the Qur’an in portions.
76:24 Therefore, be patient for the command of your Lord. Do not heed the sinner or the disbeliever.
76:25 Remember the Name of your Lord morning and evening.
76:26 Part of the night, prostrate to Him. Glorify Him all through the night.
76:27 Truly, these [sinners] love the present life and disregard the difficult Day [of Judgment].
76:28 We created them and made their bodies durable. When We will, we can change their bodies into similar ones.
76:29 Truly, this is reminder: Whosoever will come may come to the [Straight] Way of the Lord.
76:30 But you cannot come except in accordance with Allah’s will. Indeed, Allah is the All-knowing, the Perfectly Wise.
76:31 He will admit to His mercy whom He will, but for the lost He has prepared a dreadful penalty.
