M. M. Pickthall rendition of Surah The Tidings, The Announcement(an-Naba`)
78:1 Whereof do they question one another
78:2 (It is) of the awful tidings
78:3 Concerning which they are in disagreement
78:4 Nay, but they will come to know
78:5 Nay, again, but they will come to know
78:6 Have We not made the earth an expanse
78:7 And the high hills bulwarks
78:8 And We have created you in pairs
78:9 And have appointed your sleep for repose
78:10 And have appointed the night as a cloak
78:11 And have appointed the day for livelihood
78:12 And We have built above you seven strong (heavens)
78:13 And have appointed a dazzling lamp
78:14 And have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water
78:15 Thereby to produce grain and plant
78:16 And gardens of thick foliage
78:17 Lo! the Day of Decision is a fixed time
78:18 A day when the trumpet is blown and ye come in multitudes
78:19 And the heaven is opened and becometh as gates
78:20 And the hills are set in motion and become as a mirage
78:21 Lo! hell lurketh in ambush
78:22 A home for the rebellious
78:23 They will abide therein for ages
78:24 Therein taste they neither coolness nor (any) drin
78:25 Save boiling water and a paralysing cold
78:26 Reward proportioned (to their evil deeds)
78:27 For lo! they looked not for a reckoning
78:28 They called Our revelations false with strong denial
78:29 Everything have We recorded in a Book
78:30 So taste (of that which ye have earned). No increase do We give you save of torment
78:31 Lo! for the duteous is achievement
78:32 Gardens enclosed and vineyards
78:33 And maidens for companion
78:34 And a full cup
78:35 There hear they never vain discourse, nor lying
78:36 Requital from thy Lord - a gift in payment
78:37 Lord of the heavens and the earth, and (all) that is between them, the Beneficent; with Whom none can converse
78:38 On the day when the angels and the Spirit stand arrayed, they speak not, saving him whom the Beneficent alloweth and who speaketh right
78:39 That is the True Day. So whoso will should seek recourse unto his Lord
78:40 Lo! We warn you of a doom at hand, a day whereon a man will look on that which his own hands have sent before, and the disbeliever will cry: "Would that I were dust!"
