By the (mount) Tur (where Moses received Torah);
and by the book inscribed
in parchment (written sheep skin) unrolled,
and by the house (Bait-ul-Mamoor, the house over the heavens parallel to the Ka’bah at Makkah, visited by the angels),
and by the roof raised high (sky),
and by the sea boiling blaze,
surely, the punishment of your Lord will surely come to pass.
There is none that can avert it.
On the Day when the heaven will shake with a dreadful shaking
and the mountains will move away with a horrible movement.
On that Day, woe be to the rejecters (of truth),
who are engaged in falsehood.
That Day they will be pushed down by force to the fire of hell with a forceful pushing,
(it will be said to them): “This is the fire which you used to deny.
Is this a magic, or do you not see?
You burn in its heat; it will be the same for you whether you be patient or not be patient. You are only being requited for what you used to do.”
Surely, the pious will be in gardens (Paradise), and delight,
enjoying in that which their Lord has bestowed on them and their Lord saved them from the punishment of the blazing fire.
(It will be said to them): “Eat and drink with happiness because of what you used to do (good deeds).”
They will recline (with ease) on thrones arranged in ranks. And We shall marry them to lovely maidens with wide lovely eyes.
Those who believe and their offspring follow them in faith, We will join their offspring to them, and We will not decrease any reward for their deeds. Every person has a pledge for that which it has earned.
And We shall provide them with fruit and meat as they desire.
They shall pass from hand to hand a wine cup in it which shall cause no dirty, false talk in it (between them), and no sin will go around,
and boy-servants will go round for them to serve them as if they were preserved pearls.
And some of them will come near to others, questioning (worldly life
and they will say: “Surely, we were previously afraid with our families (from the punishment of Allah).
But Allah has been Gracious to us, and has saved us from the punishment of the fire.
Surely, we used to invoke Him before. Surely, He is the Kind, the Merciful.”
Therefore, remind and preach (mankind, O Muhammad). By the Grace of Allah, you are neither a fortune-teller, nor a madman.
Or do they say: “(Muhammad is) a poet! We are waiting for him some calamity (by time)!”
Say (O Muhammad to them): “Wait! I am with you among the waiters!”
Or do their minds command them this (to tell a lie against you)? Or are they people exceeding all bounds (from belief to disbelief)?
Or do they say: “He (Muhammad) has forged it (this Qur’an)?” Nay! They don’t believe!
Then let them produce a Scripture like it (the Qur’an) if they are truthful.
Or were they created by no one? Or were they (themselves) the creators?
Or have they created the heavens and the earth? Nay, but they have no firm belief.
Or are the treasures of your Lord with them? Or are they the tyrants with the authority to do as they like?
Or do they have a stairway (to heaven), by means of which they listen (to the talks of the angels)? Then let their listener produce some clear proof.
Or has He only daughters and you have sons?
Or is it that you (O Muhammad) ask a wage from them (for your preaching) so that they are burdened from a load of debt?
Or is the (knowledge of) unseen with them and they write it down?
Or do they intend a plot (against you)? If so, those who disbelieve are themselves (trapped) in a plot!
Or do they have one worthy of worship other than Allah? Glorified is Allah from all that they ascribe as partners (to Him).
Even if they were to see a piece of the heaven falling down, they would say: “Clouds gathered in heaps!”
So leave them alone till they meet their Day, in which they will sink into a fainting (with horror).
The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing nor will be helped.
Surely, for those who do wrong, there is punishment (in this world and in graves) before this, but most of them don’t know.
So wait patiently (O Muhammad) for the decision of your Lord, for surely He is watching you. Glorify the praises of your Lord when you get up from sleep,
and also glorify His praises in the night-time, and at the setting of stars.
