by the Book inscribe
upon an outstretched vellum
by the frequented house
by the elevated roof
verily, the torment of thy Lord will come to pass;
there is none to avert it
The day when the heavens shall reel about
and the mountains shall move about,
then woe upon that day to those who call (the apostles) liars
who plunge into discussion for a sport
On the day when they shall be thrust away into the fire of hell,
'This is the fire, the which ye used to call a lie!
Is it magic, this? or can ye not see?
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!
Verily, the pious (shall be) in gardens and pleasure
enjoying what their Lord has given them; for their Lord will save them from the torment of hell
'Eat and drink with good digestion, for that which ye have done!
Reclining on couches in rows; and we will wed them to large-eyed maids
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
And we will extend to them fruit and flesh such as they like
They shall pass to and fro therein a cup in which is neither folly nor sin
And round them shall go boys of theirs, as though they were hidden pearls
And they shall accost each other and ask questions
and shall say, 'Verily, we were before amidst our families shrinking with terror
but God has been gracious to us and saved us from the torment of the hot blast
'Verily, we used to call on Him before; verily, He is the righteous, the compassionate!
Wherefore do thou remind them: for thou art, by the favour of thy Lord, neither a soothsayer nor mad
Will they say, 'A poet; we wait for him the sad accidents of fate?
Say, 'Wait ye then; for I too am of those who wait!
Do their dreams bid them this? or are they an outrageous people
Or will they say, 'He has invented it?' - nay, but they do not believe
But let them bring a discourse like it, if they tell the truth
Or were they created of nothing, or were they the creators
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? - nay, but they are not sure
Or have they the treasures of thy Lord? or are they the governors supreme
Or have they a ladder whereon they can listen?- then let their listener bring obvious authority
Has He daughters, while ye have sons
Or dost thou ask them a hire, while they are borne down by debt
Or have they the unseen, so that they write it down
Or do they desire a plot? - but those who misbelieve it is who are plotted against
Or have they a god beside God? celebrated be God's praises above what they join with Him
But if they should see a fragment of the sky falling down, they would say, 'Clouds in masses!
But leave them till they meet that day of theirs whereon they shall swoon
the day when their plotting shall avail them naught, and they shall not be helped
And, verily, there is a torment beside that for those who do wrong; but most of them do not know
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
and in the night, and at the fading of the stars
