Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Mount, The Mountain(at-Tur)
52:1 By the mount!
52:2 by the Book inscribed
52:3 upon an outstretched vellum!
52:4 by the frequented house!
52:5 by the elevated roof!
52:6 by the swelling sea!
52:7 verily, the torment of thy Lord will come to pass;-
52:8 there is none to avert it!
52:9 The day when the heavens shall reel about,
52:10 and the mountains shall move about,-
52:11 then woe upon that day to those who call (the apostles) liars,
52:12 who plunge into discussion for a sport!
52:13 On the day when they shall be thrust away into the fire of hell,-
52:14 'This is the fire, the which ye used to call a lie!-
52:15 Is it magic, this? or can ye not see?-
52:16 broil ye therein, and be patient thereof or be not patient, it is the same to you: ye are but rewarded for that which ye did do!'
52:17 Verily, the pious (shall be) in gardens and pleasure,
52:18 enjoying what their Lord has given them; for their Lord will save them from the torment of hell.
52:19 'Eat and drink with good digestion, for that which ye have done!'
52:20 Reclining on couches in rows; and we will wed them to large-eyed maids.
52:21 And those who believe and whose seed follows them in the faith, we will unite their seed with them; and we will not cheat them of their work at all;- every man is pledged for what he earns.
52:22 And we will extend to them fruit and flesh such as they like.
52:23 They shall pass to and fro therein a cup in which is neither folly nor sin.
52:24 And round them shall go boys of theirs, as though they were hidden pearls.
52:25 And they shall accost each other and ask questions,
52:26 and shall say, 'Verily, we were before amidst our families shrinking with terror,
52:27 but God has been gracious to us and saved us from the torment of the hot blast.
52:28 'Verily, we used to call on Him before; verily, He is the righteous, the compassionate!'
52:29 Wherefore do thou remind them: for thou art, by the favour of thy Lord, neither a soothsayer nor mad!
52:30 Will they say, 'A poet; we wait for him the sad accidents of fate?'
52:31 Say, 'Wait ye then; for I too am of those who wait!'
52:32 Do their dreams bid them this? or are they an outrageous people?
52:33 Or will they say, 'He has invented it?' - nay, but they do not believe!
52:34 But let them bring a discourse like it, if they tell the truth!
52:35 Or were they created of nothing, or were they the creators?
52:36 Or did they create the heavens and the earth? - nay, but they are not sure!
52:37 Or have they the treasures of thy Lord? or are they the governors supreme?
52:38 Or have they a ladder whereon they can listen?- then let their listener bring obvious authority.
52:39 Has He daughters, while ye have sons?
52:40 Or dost thou ask them a hire, while they are borne down by debt?
52:41 Or have they the unseen, so that they write it down?
52:42 Or do they desire a plot? - but those who misbelieve it is who are plotted against!
52:43 Or have they a god beside God? celebrated be God's praises above what they join with Him!
52:44 But if they should see a fragment of the sky falling down, they would say, 'Clouds in masses!'
52:45 But leave them till they meet that day of theirs whereon they shall swoon;
52:46 the day when their plotting shall avail them naught, and they shall not be helped!
52:47 And, verily, there is a torment beside that for those who do wrong; but most of them do not know!
52:48 But wait thou patiently for the judgment of thy Lord, for thou art in our eyes. And celebrate the praises of thy Lord what time thou risest,
52:49 and in the night, and at the fading of the stars!
