52:1  By the mountain of Sinai
52:2  and by the book writte
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
