52:1  By Mount Ṭûr!
52:2  And by the Book written
52:3  on open pages ˹for all to read˺!
52:4  And by the ˹Sacred˺ House frequently visited!
52:5  And by the canopy raised ˹high˺!
52:6  And by the seas set on fire!
52:7  Indeed, the punishment of your Lord will come to pass—
52:8  none will avert it—
52:9  on the Day the heavens will be shaken violently,
52:10  and the mountains will be blown away entirely.
52:11  Then woe on that Day to the deniers—
52:12  those who amuse themselves with falsehood!
52:13  ˹It is˺ the Day they will be fiercely shoved into the Fire of Hell.
52:14  ˹They will be told,˺ “This is the Fire which you used to deny.
52:15  Is this magic, or do you not see?
52:16  Burn in it! It is the same whether you endure ˹it˺ patiently or not. You are only rewarded for what you used to do.”
52:17  Indeed, the righteous will be in Gardens and bliss,
52:18  enjoying whatever their Lord will have granted them. And their Lord will have protected them from the torment of the Hellfire.
52:19  ˹They will be told,˺ “Eat and drink happily for what you used to do.”
52:20  They will be reclining on thrones, ˹neatly˺ lined up ˹facing each other˺. And We will pair them to maidens with gorgeous eyes.
52:21  As for those who believe and whose descendants follow them in faith, We will elevate their descendants to their rank, never discounting anything ˹of the reward˺ of their deeds. Every person will reap only what they sowed.
52:22  And We will ˹continually˺ provide them with whatever fruit or meat they desire.
52:23  They will pass around to each other a drink ˹of pure wine,˺ which leads to no idle talk or sinfulness.
52:24  And they will be waited on by their youthful servants like spotless pearls.
52:25  They will turn to one another inquisitively.
52:26  They will say, “Before ˹this reward˺ we used to be in awe ˹of Allah˺ in the midst of our people.
52:27  So Allah has graced us and protected us from the torment of ˹Hell’s˺ scorching heat.
52:28  Indeed, we used to call upon Him ˹alone˺ before. He is truly the Most Kind, Most Merciful.”
52:29  So ˹continue to˺ remind ˹all, O Prophet˺. For you, by the grace of your Lord, are not a fortune-teller or a madman.
52:30  Or do they say, “˹He is˺ a poet, for whom we ˹eagerly˺ await an ill-fate!”?
52:31  Say, “Keep waiting! I too am waiting with you.”
52:32  Or do their ˹intelligent˺ minds prompt them to this ˹paradox˺? Or are they ˹just˺ a transgressing people?
52:33  Or do they say, “He made this ˹Quran˺ up!”? In fact, they have no faith.
52:34  Let them then produce something like it, if what they say is true!
52:35  Or were they created by nothing, or are they ˹their own˺ creators?
52:36  Or did they create the heavens and the earth? In fact, they have no firm belief ˹in Allah˺.
52:37  Or do they possess the treasuries of your Lord, or are they in control ˹of everything˺?
52:38  Or do they have a stairway, by which they eavesdrop ˹on the heavens˺? Then let those who do so bring a compelling proof.
52:39  Or does He have daughters ˹as you claim˺, while you ˹prefer to˺ have sons?
52:40  Or are you ˹O Prophet˺ asking them for a reward ˹for the message˺ so that they are overburdened by debt?
52:41  Or do they have access to ˹the Record in˺ the unseen, so they copy it ˹for all to see˺?
52:42  Or do they intend to scheme ˹against the Prophet˺? Then it is the disbelievers who will fall victim to ˹their˺ schemes.
52:43  Or do they have a god other than Allah? Glorified is Allah far above what they associate ˹with Him˺!
52:44  If they were to see a ˹deadly˺ piece of the sky fall down ˹upon them˺, still they would say, “˹This is just˺ a pile of clouds.”
52:45  So leave them until they face their Day in which they will be struck dead—
52:46  the Day their scheming will be of no benefit to them whatsoever, nor will they be helped.
52:47  Also, the wrongdoers will certainly have another torment before that ˹Day˺, but most of them do not know.
52:48  So be patient with your Lord’s decree, for you are truly under Our ˹watchful˺ Eyes. And glorify the praises of your Lord when you rise.
52:49  And glorify Him during part of the night and at the fading of the stars.
