John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Tidings, The Announcement(an-Naba`)
78:1 Of what ask they of one another
78:2 Of the great NEWS
78:3 The theme of their disputes
78:4 Nay! they shall certainly knows its truth
78:5 Again. Nay! they shall certainly know it
78:6 Have we not made the Earth a couch
78:7 And the mountains its tent-stakes
78:8 We have created you of two sexes
78:9 And ordained your sleep for rest
78:10 And ordained the night as a mantle
78:11 And ordained the day for gaining livelihood
78:12 And built above you seven solid heavens
78:13 And placed therein a burning lamp
78:14 And we send down water in abundance from the rain-clouds
78:15 That we may bring forth by it corn and herbs
78:16 And gardens thick with trees
78:17 Lo! the day of Severance is fixed
78:18 The day when there shall be a blast on the trumpet, and ye shall come in crowds
78:19 And the heaven shall be opened and be full of portals
78:20 And the mountains shall be set in motion, and melt into thin vapour
78:21 Hell truly shall be a place of snares
78:22 The home of transgressors
78:23 To abide therein ages
78:24 No coolness shall they taste therein nor any drink
78:25 Save boiling water and running sores
78:26 Meet recompense
78:27 For they looked not forward to their account
78:28 And they gave the lie to our signs, charging them with falsehood
78:29 But we noted and wrote down all
78:30 "Taste this then: and we will give you increase of nought but torment."
78:31 But, for the God-fearing is a blissful abode
78:32 Enclosed gardens and vineyards
78:33 And damsels with swelling breasts, their peers in age
78:34 And a full cup
78:35 There shall they hear no vain discourse nor any falsehood
78:36 A recompense from thy Lord-sufficing gift!
78:37 Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and of all that between them lieth - the God of Mercy! But not a word shall they obtain from Him
78:38 On the day whereon the Spirit and the Angels shall be ranged in order, they shall not speak: save he whom the God of Mercy shall permit, and who shall say that which is right
78:39 This is the sure day. Whoso then will, let him take the path of return to his Lord
78:40 Verily, we warn you of a chastisement close at hand: The day on which a man shall see the deeds which his hands have sent before him; and when the unbeliever shall say, "Oh! would I were dust!"
