76:2  Verily We created man out of a drop of intermingled sperm so that We might try him, and We therefore endowed him with hearing and sight
76:3  Surely We showed him the Right Path, regardless of whether he chooses to be thankful or unthankful (to his Lord)
76:4  For the unbelievers, We have kept ready chains and fetters and a Blazing Fire
76:5  The virtuous shall drink from a cup tempered with camphor water
76:6  This will be a gushing spring wherefrom Allah´s servants shall drink wine, a spring from which they will take out channels wherever they wish
76:7  These will be the ones who fulfil their vows and dread the Day whose woe shall be spread far and wide
76:8  those who, for the love of Him, feed the needy, and the orphan, and the captive
76:9  (saying): "We feed you only for Allah´s sake; we do not seek of you any recompense or thanks
76:10  we fear from our Lord a Day that shall be long and distressful."
76:11  So Allah shall guard them against the woe of that Day, and will procure them freshness and joy
76:12  and will reward them for their steadfastness with Paradise and robes of silk
76:13  There they will recline on elevated couches and will be subjected neither to the burning heat of the sun nor to bitter cold
76:14  The shades of Paradise will bend over them, and its fruits will be brought within their easy reach
76:15  and there shall be passed around them vessels of silver and goblets of crystal
76:16  goblets bright as crystal but made of silver, filled to exact measure
76:17  Therein they shall be served a cup flavoured with ginger
76:18  drawn from a spring (in Paradise) called Salsabil

76:23  (O Prophet), indeed We have revealed the Qur´an to you in portions
76:24  So persevere with the command of your Lord and do not pay any heed to the wicked and the unbelieving
76:25  and remember the name of your Lord, morning and evening
76:26  and prostrate yourself before Him at night, and extol His Glory during the long watches of the night
76:27  Verily they love (the good of this world) that is hastily obtainable and are oblivious of the burdensome Day ahead of them
76:28  We created them and strengthened their joints; and whenever We wish, We can change their faces entirely
76:29  Verily this is an Exhortation; so let him who so will take a way to his Lord
76:30  But your willing shall be of no avail until Allah Himself so wills. Surely Allah is All-Knowing, Most Wise
