52:1  (I swear) By the Mount
52:2  By a Decree inscribe
52:3  On a fine parchment, unrolle
52:4  And the much visited House
52:5  And the canopy exalted
52:6  And the swollen sea
52:7  Most surely the doom of your Lord will come to pass
52:8  There shall be none to avert it
52:9  On the day when the heaven shall heave with awful commotion
52:10  And the mountains shall move with awful movement
52:11  Then woe on that Day unto the deniers (of the truth)
52:12  Those who sport in vain discourses
52:13  The Day on which they shall be driven irresistibly to the Fire of Hell
52:14  This is the Fire which you used to deny
52:15  Is it magic then, or do you not see
52:16  Burn you therein, and whether you bear it patiently or not, it makes no difference; you shall be requited only what you did
52:17  Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in Gardens of Bliss
52:18  Rejoicing because of what their Lord gave them, and their Lord saved them from the punishment of the burning Fire
52:19  Eat and drink with profit and health because of what you did
52:20  Reclining on thrones set in ranks, and We will unite them to large-eyed beautiful ones (Houri)
52:21  And as for those who believe and whose offspring follow them in faith, We will unite with them their offspring and We will not deprive them of naught of their work; each individual is a pledge for his own deeds
52:22  And We will provide them with fruit and flesh such as they desire
52:23  They shall pass from one to another a cup wherein there shall be nothing vain nor any sin
52:24  And round them shall serve youth devoted to them, handsome as well-guarded (preserved or hidden) pearls
52:25  And some of them shall draw near unto others, inquiring
52:26  Saying, "Surely in the past we feared for our families
52:27  "But Allah has been gracious to us and He has saved us from the punishment of the Scorching Wind
52:28  "Surely we called upon Him before: Surely He is the Benign, the Merciful."
52:29  Therefore continue you (O Muhammad) to remind (or warn), for by the grace of your Lord, you are not a soothsayer, or a madman
52:30  Or do they say, " (he is) A poet, for whom we await a calamity of (or an accident of or caused by) time"
52:31  Say, "Wait (expect) ye! I too with you am waiting (expecting)."
52:32  Nay! Do their understandings bid them this? Or are they a people transgressing beyond bounds
52:33  Or do they say, "He has forged it." Nay! They will not believe
52:34  Then let them bring an announcement (or recital) like it if they are truthful
52:35  Or were they created out of nothing, or are they themselves the creators
52:36  Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay! They have no certainty
52:37  Or have they the treasures of your Lord with them? Or have they been set in absolute authority
52:38  Or have they a ladder (unto heaven) the means by which they listen? Then let their listener bring a clear authority
52:39  Or has He daughters while you have sons
52:40  Or do you ask them for a reward, so that they are overburdened by a debt
52:41  Or have they the unseen so that they write it down
52:42  Or do they desire to plot (or ensnare)? But those who disbelieve shall be the vanquished in their plot
52:43  Or have they a God other than Allah? Glory be to Allah from what they set up (with Him)
52:44  And if they should see a portion of the heaven coming down, they would say, "Piled up clouds."
52:45  Leave them then till they meet that Day of theirs wherein they shall be made to swoon (with terror)
52:46  The day on which their struggle shall not avail them aught, nor shall they be helped
52:47  And surely those who are unjust shall have a punishment besides that (in the world), but most of them understand not
52:48  And wait patiently for the decree (command, judgment) of your Lord, for verily you are in Our eyes; and hymn the praise of your Lord when you rise
52:49  And in the night, give Him glory too, and at the retreat of the stars
