52:1  By the Moun
52:2  and a Book inscribe
52:3  in a parchment unrolled
52:4  by the House inhabite
52:5  and the roof uplifte
52:6  and the sea swarming
52:7  surely thy Lord's chastisement is about to fall
52:8  there is none to avert it
52:9  Upon the day when heaven spins dizzil
52:10  and the mountains are in motion
52:11  woe that day unto those that cry lies
52:12  such as play at plunging
52:13  the day when they shall be pitched into the fire of Gehenna
52:14  'This is the fire that you cried lies to
52:15  What, is this magic, or is it you that do not see
52:16  Roast in it! And bear you patiently, or bear not patiently, equal it is to you; you are only being recompensed for that you were working.
52:17  Surely the godfearing shall be in gardens and bliss
52:18  rejoicing in that their Lord has given them; and their Lord shall guard them against the chastisement of Hell
52:19  'Eat and drink, with wholesome appetite, for that you were working
52:20  Reclining upon couches ranged in rows; and We shall espouse them to wide-eyed houris
52:21  And those who believed, and their seed followed them in belief, We shall join their seed with them, and We shall not defraud them of aught of their work; every man shall be pledged for what he earned
52:22  And We shall succour them with fruits and flesh such as they desir
52:23  while they pass therein a cup one to another wherein is no idle talk, no cause of sin
52:24  and there go round them youths, their own, as if they were hidden pearls
52:25  They advance one upon another, asking each other questions
52:26  They say, 'We were before among our people, ever going in fear
52:27  and God was gracious to us, and guarded us against the chastisement of the burning wind
52:28  we were before ever calling upon Him; surely He is the All-benign, the All-compassionate.
52:29  Therefore remind! by thy Lord's blessing thou art not a soothsayer neither possessed
52:30  Or do they say, 'He is a poet for whom we await Fate's uncertainty'
52:31  Say: 'Await! I shall be awaiting with you.
52:32  Or do their intellects bid them do this? Or are they an insolent people
52:33  Or do they say, 'He has invented it?' Nay, but they do not believe
52:34  Then let them bring a discourse like it, if they speak truly
52:35  Or were they created out of nothing? Or are they the creators
52:36  Or did they create the heavens and earth? Nay, but they have not sure faith
52:37  Or are thy Lord's treasuries in their keeping? Or are they the registrars
52:38  Or have they a ladder whereon they listen? Then let any of them that has listened bring a clear authority
52:39  Or has He daughters, and they sons
52:40  Or askest thou them for a wage, and so they are weighed down with debt
52:41  Or is the Unseen in their keeping, and so they are writing it down
52:42  Or desire they to outwit? The unbelievers, they are the outwitted
52:43  Or have they a god, other than God? Glory be to God, above that which they associate
52:44  Even if they saw lumps falling from heaven, they would say, 'A massed cloud!
52:45  Then leave them, till they encounter their day wherein they shall be thunderstruck
52:46  the day when their guile shall avail them naught, and they shall not be helped
52:47  And there surely awaits the evildoers a chastisement beyond even that, but most of them know it not
52:48  And be thou patient under the judgment of thy Lord; surely thou art before Our eyes. And proclaim the praise of thy Lord when thou arisest
52:49  and proclaim the praise of thy Lord in the night, and at the declining of the stars
