52:1  By the Mount (of Revelation)
52:2  By a Decree inscribe
52:3  In a Scroll unfolded
52:4  By the much-frequented Fane
52:5  By the Canopy Raised High
52:6  And by the Ocean filled with Swell;
52:7  Verily, the Doom of thy Lord will indeed come to pass;
52:8  There is none can avert it;
52:9  On the Day when the firmament will be in dreadful commotion
52:10  And the mountains will fly hither and thither
52:11  Then woe that Day to those that treat (Truth) as Falsehood;
52:12  That play (and paddle) in shallow trifles
52:13  That Day shall they be thrust down to the Fire of Hell, irresistibly
52:14  "This:, it will be said, "Is the Fire,- which ye were wont to deny
52:15  "Is this then a fake, or is it ye that do not see
52:16  "Burn ye therein: the same is it to you whether ye bear it with patience, or not: Ye but receive the recompense of your (own) deeds."
52:17  As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness,
52:18  Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them, and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire
52:19  (To them will be said:) "Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds."
52:20  They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes
52:21  And those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith,- to them shall We join their families: Nor shall We deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: (Yet) is each individual in pledge for his deeds
52:22  And We shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat, anything they shall desire
52:23  They shall there exchange, one with another, a (loving) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill
52:24  Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them. Youths (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded
52:25  They will advance to each other, engaging in mutual enquiry
52:26  They will say: "Aforetime, we were not without fear for the sake of our people
52:27  "But God has been good to us, and has delivered us from the Penalty of the Scorching Wind
52:28  "Truly, we did call unto Him from of old: truly it is He, the Beneficent, the Merciful!"
52:29  Therefore proclaim thou the praises (of thy Lord): for by the Grace of thy Lord, thou art no (vulgar) soothsayer, nor art thou one possessed
52:30  Or do they say:- "A Poet! we await for him some calamity (hatched) by Time!"
52:31  Say thou: "Await ye!- I too will wait along with you!"
52:32  Is it that their faculties of understanding urge them to this, or are they but a people transgressing beyond bounds
52:33  Or do they say, "He fabricated the (Message)"? Nay, they have no faith
52:34  Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth
52:35  Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators
52:36  Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief
52:37  Or are the Treasures of thy Lord with them, or are they the managers (of affairs)
52:38  Or have they a ladder, by which they can (climb up to heaven and) listen (to its secrets)? Then let (such a) listener of theirs produce a manifest proof
52:39  Or has He only daughters and ye have sons
52:40  Or is it that thou dost ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?
52:41  Or that the Unseen in it their hands, and they write it down
52:42  Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy God are themselves involved in a Plot
52:43  Or have they a god other than God? Exalted is God far above the things they associate with Him
52:44  Were they to see a piece of the sky falling (on them), they would (only) say: "Clouds gathered in heaps!"
52:45  So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs, wherein they shall (perforce) swoon (with terror),
52:46  The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing and no help shall be given them
52:47  And verily, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this: But most of them understand not
52:48  Now await in patience the command of thy Lord: for verily thou art in Our eyes: and celebrate the praises of thy Lord the while thou standest forth
52:49  And for part of the night also praise thou Him,- and at the retreat of the stars
