76:1  Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing - (not even) mentioned
76:2  Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight
76:3  We showed him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will)
76:4  For the Rejecters we have prepared chains, yokes, and a blazing Fire
76:5  As to the Righteous, they shall drink of a Cup (of Wine) mixed with Kafur,
76:6  A Fountain where the Devotees of Allah do drink, making it flow in unstinted abundance
76:7  They perform (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose evil flies far and wide
76:8  And they feed, for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,
76:9  (Saying),"We feed you for the sake of Allah alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks
76:10  "We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord."
76:11  But Allah will deliver them from the evil of that Day, and will shed over them a Light of Beauty and (blissful) Joy
76:12  And because they were patient and constant, He will reward them with a Garden and (garments of) silk
76:13  Reclining in the (Garden) on raised thrones, they will see there neither the sun's (excessive heat) nor (the moon's) excessive cold
76:14  And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them, and the bunches (of fruit), there, will hang low in humility
76:15  And amongst them will be passed round vessels of silver and goblets of crystal,
76:16  Crystal-clear, made of silver: they will determine the measure thereof (according to their wishes)
76:17  And they will be given to drink there of a Cup (of Wine) mixed with Zanjabil,
76:18  A fountain there, called Salsabil
76:19  And round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): If thou seest them, thou wouldst think them scattered Pearls
76:20  And when thou lookest, it is there thou wilt see a Bliss and a Realm Magnificent
76:21  Upon them will be green Garments of fine silk and heavy brocade, and they will be adorned with Bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give to them to drink of a Wine Pure and Holy
76:22  "Verily this is a Reward for you, and your Endeavour is accepted and recognised."
76:23  It is We Who have sent down the Qur'an to thee by stages
76:24  Therefore be patient with constancy to the Command of thy Lord, and hearken not to the sinner or the ingrate among them
76:25  And celebrate the name of thy Lord morning and evening
76:26  And part of the night, prostrate thyself to Him; and glorify Him a long night through
76:27  As to these, they love the fleeting life, and put away behind them a Day (that will be) hard
76:28  It is We Who created them, and We have made their joints strong; but, when We will, We can substitute the like of them by a complete change
76:29  This is an admonition: Whosoever will, let him take a (straight) Path to his Lord
76:30  But ye will not, except as Allah wills; for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom
76:31  He will admit to His Mercy whom He will; But the wrong-doers,- for them has He prepared a grievous Penalty
