And a Book inscribed
In a published scroll
And the frequented House
And the elevated roof
And the seething sea
The punishment of your Lord is coming
There is nothing to avert it
On the Day when the heaven sways in agitation
And the mountains go into motion
Woe on that Day to the deniers
Those who play with speculation
The Day when they are shoved into the Fire of Hell forcefully
'This is the Fire which you used to deny
Is this magic, or do you not see
Burn in it. Whether you are patient, or impatient, it is the same for you. You are only being repaid for what you used to do.'
But the righteous will be amid gardens and bliss
Enjoying what their Lord has given them, and their Lord has spared them the suffering of Hell
Eat and drink happily, for what you used to do
Relaxing on luxurious furnishings; and We will couple them with gorgeous spouses
Those who believed and their offspring followed them in faith—We will unite them with their offspring, and We will not deprive them of any of their works. Every person is hostage to what he has earned
And We will supply them with fruit, and meat; such as they desire
They will exchange therein a cup; wherein is neither harm, nor sin
Serving them will be youths like hidden pearls
And they will approach one another, inquiring
They will say, 'Before this, we were fearful for our families
But God blessed us, and spared us the agony of the Fiery Winds
Before this, we used to pray to Him. He is the Good, the Compassionate.'
So remind. By the grace of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer, nor a madman
Or do they say, 'A poet—we await for him a calamity of time'
Say, 'Go on waiting; I will be waiting with you.'
Or is it that their dreams compel them to this? Or are they aggressive people
Or do they say, 'He made it up'? Rather, they do not believe
So let them produce a discourse like it, if they are truthful
Or were they created out of nothing? Or are they the creators
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? In fact, they are not certain
Or do they possess the treasuries of your Lord? Or are they the controllers
Or do they have a stairway by means of which they listen? Then let their listener produce a clear proof
Or for Him the daughters, and for you the sons
Or do you demand a payment from them, and they are burdened by debt
Or do they know the future, and they are writing it down
Or are they planning a conspiracy? The conspiracy will befall the disbelievers
Or do they have a god besides God? God transcends what they associate
Even if they were to see lumps of the sky falling down, they would say, 'A mass of clouds.'
So leave them until they meet their Day in which they will be stunned
The Day when their ploys will avail them nothing; and they will not be helped
For those who do wrong, there is a punishment besides that; but most of them do not know
So patiently await the decision of your Lord, for you are before Our Eyes; and proclaim the praises of your Lord when you arise
And glorify Him during the night, and at the receding of the stars
