George Sale rendition of Surah The Mount, The Mountain(at-Tur)
---
52:1 By the mountain of Sinai;
52:2 and by the book written
52:3 in an expanded scroll;
52:4 and by the visited house;
52:5 and by the elevated roof of heaven;
52:6 and by the swelling ocean:
52:7 Verily the punishment of thy Lord will surely descend;
52:8 there shall be none to withhold it.
52:9 On that day the heaven shall be shaken, and shall reel;
52:10 and the mountains shall walk and pass away.
52:11 And on that day woe be unto those who accused God's apostles of imposture;
52:12 who amused themselves in wading in vain disputes!
52:13 On that day shall they be driven and thrust into the fire of hell;
52:14 and it shall be said unto them, this is the fire which ye denied as a fiction.
52:15 Is this a magic illusion? Or do ye not see?
52:16 Enter the same to be scorched: Whether ye bear your torments patiently, or impatiently, it will be equal unto you: Ye shall surely receive the reward of that which ye have wrought.
52:17 But the pious shall dwell amidst gardens and pleasures;
52:18 delighting themselves in what their Lord shall have given them: And their Lord shall deliver them from the pains of hell.
52:19 And it shall be said unto them, eat and drink with easy digestion; because of that which ye have wrought:
52:20 Leaning on couches disposed in order: And We will espouse them unto virgins having large black eyes.
52:21 And unto those who believe, and whose off-spring follow them in the faith, We will join their off-spring in paradise: And We will not diminish unto them ought of the merit of their works. -- Every man is given in pledge for that which he shall have wrought. --
52:22 And we will give them fruits in abundance, and flesh of the kinds which they shall desire.
52:23 They shall present unto one another therein a cup of wine, wherein there shall be no vain discourse, nor any incitement unto wickedness.
52:24 And youths appointed to attend them, shall go round them: Beautiful as pearls hidden in their shell.
52:25 And they shall approach unto one another, and shall ask mutual questions.
52:26 And they shall say, verily we were heretofore amidst our family, in great dread with regard to our state after death:
52:27 But God hath been gracious unto us, and hath delivered us from the pain of burning fire:
52:28 For we called on him heretofore; and he is the beneficent, the merciful.
52:29 Wherefore do thou, O prophet, admonish thy people. Thou art not, by the grace of thy Lord, a soothsayer, or a madman.
52:30 Do they say, he is a poet: We wait, concerning him, some adverse turn of fortune?
52:31 Say, wait ye my ruin: Verily I wait, with you, the time of your destruction.
52:32 Do their mature understandings bid them say this; or are they people who perversely transgress?
52:33 Do they say, he hath forged the Koran? Verily they believe not.
52:34 Let them produce a discourse like unto it, if they speak truth.
52:35 Were they created by nothing; or were they the creators of themselves?
52:36 Did they create the heavens and the earth? Verily they are not firmly persuaded that God hath created them.
52:37 Are the stores of thy Lord in their hands? Are they the supreme dispensers of all things?
52:38 Have they a ladder, whereby they may ascend to heaven, and hear the discourses of the angels? Let one, therefore, who hath heard them, produce an evident proof thereof.
52:39 Hath God daughters, and have ye sons?
52:40 Dost thou ask them a reward for thy preaching? But they are laden with debts.
52:41 Are the secrets of futurity with them; and do they transcribe the same from the table of God's decrees?
52:42 Do they seek to lay a plot against thee? But the unbelievers are they who shall be circumvented.
52:43 Have they any god, besides God? Far be God exalted above the idols which they associate with Him!
52:44 If they should see a fragment of the heaven falling down upon them, they would say, it is only a thick cloud.
52:45 Wherefore leave them, until they arrive at their day wherein they shall swoon for fear:
52:46 A day, in which their subtle contrivances shall not avail them at all, neither shall they be protected.
52:47 And those who act unjustly shall surely suffer another punishment besides this: But the greater part of them do not understand.
52:48 And wait thou patiently the judgment of thy Lord concerning them; for thou art in our eye: And celebrate the praise of thy Lord, when thou risest up;
52:49 and praise Him in the night-season, and when the stars begin to disappear.
