John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Mount, The Mountain(at-Tur)
---
52:1 BY the MOUNTAIN,
52:2 And by the Book written
52:3 On an outspread roll,
52:4 And by the frequented fane,
52:5 And by the lofty vault,
52:6 And by the swollen sea,
52:7 Verily, a chastisement from thy Lord is imminent,
52:8 And none shall put it back.
52:9 Reeling on that day the Heaven shall reel,
52:10 And stirring shall the mountains stir.
52:11 And woe, on that day, to those who called the apostles liars,
52:12 Who plunged for pastime into vain disputes -
52:13 On that day shall they be thrust with thrusting to the fire of Hell: -
52:14 "This is the fire which ye treated as a lie.
52:15 What! is this magic, then? or, do ye not see it?
52:16 Burn ye therein: bear it patiently or impatiently 'twill be the same to you: for ye shall assuredly receive the reward of your doings."
52:17 But mid gardens and delights shall they dwell who have feared God,
52:18 Rejoicing in what their Lord hath given them; and that from the pain of hell-fire hath their Lord preserved them.
52:19 "Eat and drink with healthy enjoyment, in recompense for your deeds."
52:20 On couches ranged in rows shall they recline; and to the damsels with large dark eyes will we wed them.
52:21 And to those who have believed, whose offspring have followed them in the faith, will we again unite their offspring; nor of the meed of their works will we in the least defraud them. Pledged to God is every man for his actions and their desert.
52:22 And fruits in abundance will we give them, and flesh as they shall desire:
52:23 Therein shall they pass to one another the cup which shall engender no light discourse, no motive to sin:
52:24 And youths shall go round among them beautiful as imbedded pearls:
52:25 And shall accost one another and ask mutual questions.
52:26 "A time indeed there was," will they say, "when we were full of care as to the future lot of our families;
52:27 But kind hath God been to us, and from the pestilential torment hath he preserved us;
52:28 For, heretofore we called upon Him - and He is the Beneficent, the Merciful."
52:29 Warn thou, then. For thou by the favour of thy Lord art neither soothsayer nor possessed.
52:30 Will they say, "A poet! let us await some adverse turn of his fortune?"
52:31 SAY, wait ye, and in sooth I too will wait with you.
52:32 Is it their dreams which inspire them with this? or is it that they are a perverse people?
52:33 Will they say, "He hath forged it (the Koran) himself?" Nay, rather it is that they believed not.
52:34 Let them then produce a discourse like it, if they speak the Truth.
52:35 Were they created by nothing? or were they the creators of themselves?
52:36 Created they the Heavens and Earth? Nay, rather, they have no faith.
52:37 Hold they thy Lord's treasures? Bear they the rule supreme?
52:38 Have they a ladder for hearing the angels? Let any one who hath heard them bring a clear proof of it.
52:39 Hath God daughters and ye sons?
52:40 Asketh thou pay of them? they are themselves weighed down with debts.
52:41 Have they such a knowledge of the secret things that they can write them down?
52:42 Desire they to lay snares for thee? But the snared ones shall be they who do not believe.
52:43 Have they any God beside God? Glory be to God above what they join with Him.
52:44 And should they see a fragment of the heaven falling down, they would say, "It is only a dense cloud."
52:45 Leave them then until they come face to face with the day when they shall swoon away:
52:46 A day in which their snares shall not at all avail them, neither shall they be helped.
52:47 And verily, beside this is there a punishment for the evildoers: but most of them know it not.
52:48 Wait thou patiently the judgment of thy Lord, for thou art in our eye; and celebrate the praise of thy Lord when thou risest up,
52:49 And in the night-season: Praise him when the stars are setting.
