Has man heard of a period of time when he wasn´t even mentioned?
We created man from sperm made up of cells We put to the test, then We gave him hearing and eyesight.
We guided him the way, so he may be grateful or reject it.
We have promised those who reject (the truth) chains and cuffs and a fire.
The righteous will drink from a cup containing a mixture of camphor,
A spring of which the servants of Allah will drink, whose flow they direct.
They kept their promises and feared a day the harm of which is overpowering.
And they fed food out of love for Him to the poor and orphans and their relatives.
We only feed you to please Allah, we don´t want any reward or thanks from you.
For we fear from our Lord an extensive gloomy day.
So Allah protected them from the harm of that day and granted them luxury and happiness.
And rewarded them for their patience with a garden and silk.
They recline there on couches and do not face the (heat of the) sun or freezing cold.
Its shade is close over them and its pickings hang low.
They will be waited upon with silver dishes and crystal glasses,
Crystal made of silver, which they will measure out.
And they will be given to drink there from a cup containing a mixture of ginger,
A spring there which is called Salsabil (Delicious Flow).
And they will be waited upon by eternal youth, if you saw them, you would consider them scattered pearls.
And if you looked again, you would see blessings and a vast kingdom.
They wear clothes of green silk and brocade and are adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord gives them a pure drink.
This is a reward for you and your effort is appreciated.
For We revealed to you the Qur´an in succession.
So wait for the judgement of your Lord and do not obey any sinner or rejecter (of the truth) amongst them.
And remember the name of your Lord in the mornings and evenings.
And at night, then prostrate to Him and glorify Him throughout the night.
For these love the immediate life and leave a grave day behind them.
We created them and strengthened their physique, and if We pleased, We could replace them with others like them.
This is a reminder, so let whoever pleases take a way towards his Lord.
And it will not please you unless Allah pleases, for Allah is knowing and wise.
He enters whom he pleases into His mercy, and for the wrongdoers He has promised a painful punishment.
