And by Record inscribe
On a writing material widely published.h
And by the long-standing, frequently visited house [Kaabah
And by the roof elevated high [of heaven]
And by the sea in high tid
Punishment by your Lord is indeed inevitable
None can ward it off
When the sky [Universe] tremble
And the mountains mov
Woe, then, to all those who had rejected the Truth
Those who had wasted their time on vanities
When they are pushed into Hell fir
"This is the Fire you had denied!"
"Is this, then, a delusion or are you blind to it?"
"Suffer it! Whether you bear it with patience or not, it will be all the same for you: you are but being paid back for what you were doing!"
The pious are in gardens among bountie
They rejoice in all that their Lord has granted them. And their Lord has warded off punishment through the blazing Fire from them
"Eat and drink to your satisfaction as a reward for your [good] deeds."
"Reclining on couches ranged in rows!" And We shall give them Houris with lovely eyes as companions
And those that believed and their offspring that followed them in belief, We unite them with their offspring. And We deprive them not of any of their deeds. Every human being is held in pledge for whatever he earns
And We help them with fruit and meat — whatever they desire
They have rounds of drinks which give rise to no nonsense, nor sin
And waiting upon them will be boys — like pearls hidden in their shells — assigned to them
And they turn to one another, enquiringly
They say, "We were living with our families in fear, before!"
"So Allah has been good to us, and has warded off from us punishment of intense heat."
"We did indeed invoke Him before. He is indeed the One Ultimate in goodness, the Merciful!"
Proclaim the praises of your Lord, then! You [Muhammad] are, by His grace, neither a fortune-teller nor a madman
Or do they say, "A poet! We await a change of fortune for him"
Say, "Wait! I, too, am one of those who wait with you."
Do their visions dictate this to them — or are they people committing transgression
Or do they say, "He himself has authored it"? Nay, they believe not
Let them produce another discourse like it, if what they say be true
Are they created out of nothing? Or, are they themselves the creators
Or, have they created the heavens and the earth? And yet they are not certain of a Creator creating them!h
Or, have they your Lord's treasures with them? Or are they in control
Or, have they a link through which they could listen? Let him who has listened to them then come up with manifest proof
Or, are there daughters for Him, and, for you, sons
Or, do you [Prophet Muhammad] ask of them a reward, and so do they get burdened with debt
Or, have they the knowledge of the Unseen, which they have written down?
Or, do they want to hatch a plot? But then those who suppress the truth — they themselves are the victims of a plot
Or, have they a deity other than Allah? Allah is too high in glory, above what they worship besides Him
And if they were to see meteorites from the sky falling down, they would say, "Gathering clouds!"
Leave them alone then until they meet their Day in which they will be stunned
The Day their scheming and plotting will be of no avail to them, and they will receive no help
And, indeed, for those who do wrong, a punishment closer than that [in this world itself]! But most of them are not aware
And await in patience for your Lord's Decree! We have indeed of course kept you within Our sight. And glorify your Lord with His praise when you are up on your feet
And glorify Him at night, and when the stars retreat [at dawn]
