Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah Man(al-Insan)
76:1 WAS THERE NOT a time in the life of man when he was not even a mentionable thing?
76:2 Verily We created man from a sperm yoked (to the ovum) to bring out his real substance, then gave him hearing and sight.
76:3 We surely showed him the way that he may either be grateful or deny.
76:4 We have prepared for unbelievers chains and collars and a blazing fire.
76:5 Surely the devotees will drink cups flavoured with palm blossoms
76:6 From a spring of which the votaries of God will drink and make it flow in abundance.
76:7 Those who fulfil their vows and fear the Day whose evil shall be diffused far and wide,
76:8 And feed the needy for the love of Him, and the orphans and the captives,
76:9 (Saying): "We feed you for the sake of God, desiring neither recompense nor thanks.
76:10 We fear the dismal day calamitous from our Lord."
76:11 So God will protect them from the evil of that day, and grant them happiness and joy,
76:12 And reward them for their perseverence Paradise and silken robes,
76:13 Where they will recline on couches feeling neither heat of the sun nor intense cold.
76:14 The shadows will bend over them, and low will hang the clusters of grapes.
76:15 Passed round will be silver flagons and goblets made of glass,
76:16 And crystal clear bottles of silver, of which they will determine the measure themselves.
76:17 There will they drink a cup flavoured with ginger
76:18 From a spring by the name of Ever-flowing-Salsabil.
76:19 And boys of everlasting youth will go about attending them. Looking at them you would think that they were pearls dispersed.
76:20 When you look around, you will see delights and great dominion.
76:21 On their bodies will be garments of the finest green silk and brocade, and they will be adorned with bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give them a purest draught to drink.
76:22 "This in truth is your recompense, and acceptance of your endeavours."
76:23 We have revealed the Qur'an to you gradually;
76:24 So wait for your Lord's command, and do not follow any sinner or disbeliever among them.
76:25 Meditate upon the name of your Lord morning and evening;
76:26 And bow in homage part of the night, and glorify Him far into the night.
76:27 Surely men love what hastes away and forget the grievous day (ahead).
76:28 We created them and fixed their bones and joints; and We could replace them when We like with others like them.
76:29 This surely is a reminder: Therefore whosoever desires may take the way to his Lord.
76:30 But you will not desire except as God wills. Verily He is all-knowing and all-wise.
76:31 He admits whosoever He will to His benevolence. But for the evil-doers He has prepared a painful punishment.
