76:1  There was — was there not? — a time when man [before he was created] was not yet a thing worth mentioning
76:2  It is, indeed, We who have created man out of a mixed [fertilized] ovum, so that We try him out. And then We made him a being endowed with hearing and sight
76:3  We do indeed guide him, whether he be grateful or ungrateful
76:4  For those who suppress the Truth, We have readied chains, and shackles, and a blazing Fire
76:5  The righteous indeed shall drink from a cup containing a camphor-flavoured beverage
76:6  A fountain from which Allah's subjects shall drink, making it flow as and when required
76:7  They fulfill their vows, and fear a Day the evil of which would be widespread
76:8  And they feed — for the sheer love of Him — the needy, the orphan, and the victim of circustances
76:9  "We feed you only for Allah's sake: we desire no recompense from you, nor thanks!"
76:10  "We do indeed fear from our Lord a distressful, disastrous Day!"
76:11  And then, Allah will save them from the woes of that Day, and will bestow on them brightness and joy
76:12  And He will reward them, for their patience, with Garden [Paradise] and silk [garments]
76:13  They will be reclining on couches there. They will feel neither sunburn therein nor intense cold
76:14  And its shadows will come down low over them, and its clusters of fruit will dangle within reach
76:15  And silver vessels and glass goblets will be passed around them
76:16  From silver [vessel] to glass [goblet] — [the drink will be poured out] in required quantity
76:17  And in it [Paradise] they will be given to drink of a cup containing a ginger-flavoured beverage
76:18  [The source of the beverage is a fountain] therein named `Salsabeel'
76:19  And waiting upon them will be immortal boys. When you see them you would think they were pearls dispersed
76:20  And when you look, you would be looking at bliss and a realm transcendent
76:21  Upon them will be garments of green silk and brocade; and they will be adorned with silver bracelets. And their Lord will give them a pure drink
76:22  "This indeed is a reward for you, and your struggle [in worldly life] is appreciated!"
76:23  Indeed, We have sent down the Qur'aan on you, in stages
76:24  Await, then, your Lord's decree, and obey not any sinner or ingrate among them
76:25  And do chant your Lord's name morning and evenin
76:26  And during the night. And then prostrate before Him. And extol His glory during the long night
76:27  These [who suppress the Truth] do indeed love this transitory life, and leave a hard and difficult Day behind their backs
76:28  It is We who have created them and given them their strength. And when we so will, We can replace them with others of their kind
76:29  This [Qur'aan] indeed is a Counsel. He then, who so wills, may take a way to his Lord
76:30  But you cannot will it unless Allah so wills! Allah is indeed Aware, Wise
76:31  HE admits to His grace whom He wills. And He has readied painful punishment for the wicked people
