Has man ever known a point of time when he was not something remembered?
We created man from a mingled drop to test him, and We made him hearing and seeing.
We guided him on the Way, whether he is thankful or unthankful.
We have made ready for the kafirun shackles and chains and a Searing Blaze.
The truly good will drink from a cup mixed with the coolness of camphor,
a spring from which Allah´s slaves will drink, making it gush forth at will abundantly.
They fulfil their vows and fear a Day whose evil will spread far and wide.
They give food, despite their love for it, to the poor and orphans and captives:
´We feed you only out of desire for the Face of Allah. We do not want any repayment from you or any thanks.
Truly We fear from our Lord a glowering, calamitous Day.´
So Allah has safeguarded them from the evil of that Day and has made them meet with radiance and pure joy.
and will reward them for their steadfastness with a Garden and with silk.
Reclining in it on couches, they will experience there neither burning sun nor bitter cold.
Its shading branches will droop down over them, its ripe fruit hanging ready to be picked.
Vessels of silver and goblets of pure crystal will be passed round among them,
crystalline silver they have measured them very exactly.
They will be given there a cup to drink mixed with the warmth of ginger.
In it there is a flowing spring called Salsabil.
Ageless youths will circulate among them, serving them. Seeing them, you would think them scattered pearls.
Seeing them, you see delight and a great kingdom.
They will wear green garments of fine silk and rich brocade. They will be adorned with silver bracelets. And their Lord will give them a pure draught to drink.
´This is your reward. Your striving is fully acknowledged.´
It is We who have sent the Qur´an down to you little by little.
Therefore wait patiently for the judgement of your Lord. Do not obey any evildoer or thankless man among them.
Remember the Name of your Lord in the morning and the evening.
Prostrate to Him during the night and glorify Him throughout the long night.
These people love this fleeting world and have put the thought of a Momentous Day behind their backs.
We created them and made their joints strong, and if We wish We can replace them with others like them.
This truly is a Reminder, so whoever wills should take the Way towards his Lord.
But you will not will unless Allah wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
He admits whoever He wills into His mercy. But He has prepared a painful punishment for the wrongdoers
