By a decree inscribed
In parchment unfolded
By the much-frequented house
By the canopy raised high
And by the ocean that is filled
Indeed the doom from your Lord will indeed come to pass
There are none who can avert it
On the day that the firmament will be in dreadful commotion
And the mountains will fly near and far
Then woe that day to those who treat truth as falsehood
That play in shallow things
That day they will be thrust down to the fire of hell, irresistibly
“This,” it will be said, “Is the fire that you used to deny
“Is this then a fake, or is it you who do not see
“Burn therein, for it is the same whether you bear it with patience or not. You will receive the reward of your deeds.
As for the righteous, they will be in gardens, and in happiness
Enjoying the bliss that their Lord has bestowed on them. And their Lord will deliver them from the penalty of the fire
Eat and drink for enjoyment and health, because of your deeds
They will recline on thrones arranged in ranks, and We will join them to companions with beautiful eyes
And those who believe and whose family follow them in faith, We will join them with their family, and We will not deprive them of any of their works, each person is responsible for their deeds
And We will give them all fruit and meat, anything they desire
There they will exchange, one with another, a cup free of nonsense, and free of harm
Around them will be youthfulness, like pearls well guarded
They will advance each other, engaging in mutual inquiry
They will say, “Before, we were not without fear, because of our people
“But God has been good to us, and has delivered us from the penalty of the scorching wind
“Indeed we used to call on Him. Truly it is He, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer.
Therefore proclaim His praises, for by the grace of your Lord, you are no oracle, nor are you one possessed
Or do they call you a poet? We await them with calamity in due time.
Say, “Wait, I too will wait with you.
Is it that their mind leads them to this, or are they just a people transgressing beyond bounds
Or do they say, “He fabricated the message?” No, they have no faith
Let them produce a hadith like it, if they speak the truth
Were they created of nothing, or did they create themselves
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? No, they have no firm beliefs
Or are the treasures of your Lord with them, or are they the managers
Or have they a ladder, by which they can listen? Then let such a listener produce clear proof
Or has He only daughters and you have sons
Or is it that you ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt
Or is the unknown in their hands, and they write it down
Or do they plot and scheme? But those who defy God are themselves the subject of a plan
Or do they have a god other than God. Exalted is God, far above the things they associate with Him
If they saw a piece of the sky falling, they would say, “Fog-clouds gathered in heaps.
So leave them alone until they encounter that day of theirs, when they will faint
The day when their plotting will not avail them, and no help will be given to them
And indeed, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this, but most of them do not understand
Now wait in patience, the command of your Lord, for indeed you are in Our Eyes, and glorify your Lord with praise while you stand forth
And for part of the night praise Him, and at the retreat of the stars
