76:1  DOES THERE not pass over man a space of time when his life is a blank?⁴
76:2  We have created man from the union of the two sexes, that We may put him to the proof. We have endowed him with hearing and sigh
76:3  and, be he thankful or oblivious of Our favours, We have shown him the right path
76:4  For the unbelievers We have prepared chains and fetters, and a Conflagration
76:5  But the righteous shall drink of a cup tempered at the Camphor Fountain
76:6  a gushing spring at which the worshippers of God refresh themselves
76:7  they who keep their vows and dread the far-flung terrors of a certain day;
76:8  who, though they hold it dear, give sustenance to the destitute, the orphan, and the captive, saying
76:9  We feed you for God‘s sake only; we seek of you no recompense nor thanks
76:10  for we fear from our Lord a day of anguish and of woe
76:11  God will deliver them from the evil of that day, and make their faces shine with joy
76:12  He will reward them for their steadfastness with Paradise and robes of silk
76:13  Reclining there upon soft couches, they shall feel neither the scorching heat nor the biting cold
76:14  Trees will spread their shade around them, and fruits will hang in clusters over them
76:15  They shall be served on silver dishes, and beakers as large as goblets
76:16  silver goblets which they themselves shall measure
76:17  and cups brim-full with ginger-flavoured wate
76:18  from a fount called Salsabil
76:19  They shall be attended by boys graced with eternal youth, who to the beholder‘s eyes will seem like sprinkled pearls
76:20  When you gaze and gaze upon that scene, you shall behold a kingdom blissful and glorious
76:21  They shall be arrayed in garments of fine green silk and rich brocade, and adorned with bracelets of silver. Their Lord will give them pure nectar to drink
76:22  Thus shall you be rewarded; your endeavours shall earn much thanks
76:23  It was We who sent down to you the Koran by gradual revelation
76:24  therefore await with patience the judgement of your Lord, and yield to none of them, sinner or blasphemer
76:25  Remember the name of your Lord morning and evening
76:26  in the night time bow to Him: and praise Him all night long
76:27  Surely the unbelievers love this fleeting life too well, and leave behind them a heavy day of doom
76:28  We created them, and endowed their limbs and joints with strength; but if We please, We can replace them by others like them
76:29  This is indeed an Admonition. Let him that will, take the right path to his Lord
76:30  Yet you cannot will, except by the will of God. God is omniscient and wise
76:31  He admits into His mercy whom He will: and for the wrongdoers He has prepared a woeful punishment
