76:1  Has there not been a long period of time, when man was nothing— (Not even) mentioned
76:2  Surely We have created man from a drop of mixed sperm and ovary fluids, in order to try him, so, We gave him (the gifts) of hearing and of sight
76:3  Verily, We showed him the Way: Whether he be thankful or not (rests upon his own will)
76:4  Verily, We have prepared for the disbelievers: Chains, shackles, and a blazing Fire
76:5  As to the righteous: They shall drink of a cup blended with Kafur—
76:6  A fountain where the devoted servants of Allah drink, making it flow in plenty
76:7  They make (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose sorrow spreads far and wide
76:8  And they feed for the love of Allah the needy, the orphan, and the captive and the needy,—
76:9  (Saying), "We feed you for the sake of Allah Alone, no reward do we want from you, nor thanks
76:10  "Verily, We only fear a Day of painful suffering (that may arrive) from the side of our Lord."
76:11  So, Allah will save them from the sorrow of that Day, and will spread over them a Light of beauty and a (cheerful) joy
76:12  And because they were patient and steady, He will reward them with a Garden and (clothes of) silk
76:13  Reclining in the (Garden) on raised couches (thrones), they will see there neither the sun’s (extreme heat) nor the moon’s (extreme cold)
76:14  And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them, and the bunches (of fruit), there will hang low in (their) easy reach
76:15  And among them will be passed round containers of silver and glasses of crystal—
76:16  Crystal-clear, made of silver: They will determine the amount in there (according to their wishes)
76:17  And they will be given to drink from a Cup (of drink) mixed with Zanjabil (ginger)—
76:18  A fountain there called Salsabil
76:19  And round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): If you were to see them you would think them as pearls scattered about
76:20  And when you look, it is there that you will see a joy and a magnificent kingdom (an immense constellation of beauty)
76:21  Upon them will be green garments of fine silk and heavy ornaments and they will be decorated with bracelets of silver; And their Lord will give to them to drink a cleansing drink, pure and holy
76:22  (It will be said to them:) "Surely, this is a reward for you, and your struggle (in life) is accepted and recognized."
76:23  Verily, it is We Who have sent down the Quran to you by stages
76:24  Therefore be patient with uniformity to the Command of your Lord, and do not listen to the sinner or the thankless among them
76:25  And praise (with joy) the Name of your Lord every morning (Faj’r) and afternoon (Zuh’r and ‘Asr)
76:26  And part of the night prostrate yourself to Him (Maghrib and Isha prayers) and glorify Him (in predawn prayer) the long night through
76:27  Verily, as to these (thankless), they love the present life of this world, and put away behind them a heavy Day (that will be) hard
76:28  It is We Who created them, and We have made their joints strong; And when We (so) wish, We can replace them bringing others like them in their place
76:29  Verily, this (Verse of the Quran) is a warning: So whoever wishes, let him take a (straight) Path to his Lord
76:30  But you will not except as Allah wishes; Verily, Allah is Ever All Knowing (Aleem), All Wise (Hakeem)
76:31  He will admit to His Mercy whomever He wishes; But the wrongdoers— For them, He has prepared a painful penalty
