52:1  Consider the mountain!
52:2  Consider a Book inscribed…
52:3  …on unfurled parchment!
52:4  Consider the frequented house [of worship]!
52:5  Consider the roof raised high!
52:6  Consider the ocean swelled!
52:7  Truly, the doom of your Lord will come to pass.
52:8  No one can avert it.
52:9  [It will be] the day when the sky will be in dreadful commotion.
52:10  The mountains will violently shift.
52:11  Woe that day to those who reject [God’s truth]…
52:12  …and wallow in shallow discourse.
52:13  That day they will be forcibly thrust into the fire of Hell.
52:14  “This is the fire you denied.
52:15  “Is it really fake, or do you not understand?
52:16  “Burn therein. Bear it patiently or not patiently; it’s all the same for you. Truly, you receive the recompense of your deeds.”
52:17  Truly, the righteous will be in gardens, with happiness.
52:18  [They will] enjoy what their Lord has given them. Their Lord will deliver them from the penalty of Hell.
52:19  “Eat and drink. Be satisfied because of your past deeds.”
52:20  They will recline on couches arranged in rows. We will join them with wide-eyed companions.
52:21  The believers and their believing family members will be reunited. We will not deprive them any of their earnings. Each individual is pledged for his/her deeds.
52:22  We will bestow upon them fruit and meats as they desire.
52:23  They will exchange, one with another, a cup free of foolishness, free of sin.
52:24  Going around to serve them will be [angelic] youths that seem like guarded pearls.
52:25  They will approach each other in mutual discussion.
52:26  They will say, “Previously, we were in fear concerning our families.
52:27  But Allah has been good to us. [He] has protected us from the agony of the scorching wind.
52:28  Truly, we previously called to him. Truly, He is the Gracious Benefactor, the Most Merciful.”
52:29  Remind then, for, by the grace of your Lord, you are not a sorcerer or one possessed.
52:30  Do they say, “A poet! We watch for some calamity for him over time”?
52:31  Say, “Wait. Indeed, I wait along with you.”
52:32  Do their own minds urge them toward this? Or are they just a sinful people?
52:33  Do they say, “He made this up”? Nonsense! They have no faith.
52:34  Let them produce a recital like it, if they speak the truth.
52:35  Were they created from nothing, or were they the creators?
52:36  Did they create the skies and Earth? Nonsense! They have no certainty.
52:37  Are the treasures of your Lord with them, or are they the managers?
52:38  Do they have a ladder by which they can listen [to the secrets of Heaven]? Let their listener produce obvious evidence.
52:39  Has He only daughters while you have sons?
52:40  Have you asked for a reward so that they are burdened with a load of debt?
52:41  Is the unseen with them so that they can write it?
52:42  Do they intend a plot? Those who disbelieve are already involved in a plot.
52:43  Do they have a god other than Allah? Allah is exalted far above the things they associate with Him.
52:44  If they saw a piece of the sky falling, they would say, “A mass of clouds!”
52:45  Leave them alone until they encounter that day of theirs in which they will feel faint.
52:46  [It will be] the day when their plotting will not help them at all. No help will be given to them.
52:47  Truly, for those who sin, there is a punishment besides this. Most of them do not understand, however.
52:48  Patiently wait for the command of your Lord. Truly, you are in Our sight. Celebrate the praises of your Lord while standing.
52:49  For part of the night and when the stars retreat, praise Him.
