Has there come upon the human being a span of time when he was nothing to be mentioned?
We created the human being from a fertilized ovum to test him; and We gave him hearing and sight.
Then We guided him to the right path, whether he is grateful or not.
We have prepared chains, shackles and a Searing Fire for the unbelievers.
But the righteous will drink from a cup whose mixture is Kafour,
a spring from which God's worshipers shall drink, making it gush abundantly at will.
They are the ones who fulfill their vows and fear a Day whose evil will be widespread.
They feed the needy, the orphan, and the prisoner, for the love of Him.
[Saying], "We feed you for the sake of God. We want neither compensation, nor gratitude from you.
We simply dread an austere and stressful Day promised by our Lord."
So God will spare them the evil of that Day and will give them radiance and joy,
and will reward them for what they patiently endured with a Garden and silk,
reclining there on couches. They will not experience there either burning sun or bitter cold.
Shades cover them, and its fruit hanging close ready to be picked.
Circulated among them are vessels of silver, and cups of pure crystal
clear glasses made from silver according to their own measure.
They will be given a drink mixed with ginger
from a spring there named Salsabeel.
Passing among them are immortal youths. If you see them, you would think they were like sprinkled pearls.
If you were to look around, you would see a heavenly and vast kingdom.
They will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade. And they will be adorned with silver bracelets. Their Lord will give them a purified drink.
"This is a reward for you. Your efforts are well appreciated."
It is We who have sent down the Qur'an to you in gradual revelations.
So await your Lord's Judgment with patience; and do not obey a sinner or a denier of the truth from among them.
Remember to call on the name of your Lord morning and evening
And during the night bow down to Him and exalt His limitless glory long into the night.
These people love the present life, and leave behind a Heavy Day.
We have created them, and strengthened their frame; and if we wish, We can replace them with others like them.
This is a reminder. Let whoever wills, take a path to his Lord.
Yet you cannot will, unless God wills. God is Knowing and Wise.
He admits whom He wills into His mercy. But He has prepared a painful punishment for the unjust.
