Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Emissaries, Winds Sent Forth(al-Mursalat)
---
77:1 By the loosed ones successively
77:2 storming tempestuously
77:3 by the scatterers scattering
77:4 and the severally severing
77:5 and those hurling a reminder
77:6 excusing or warning,
77:7 surely that which you are promised is about to fall!
77:8 When the stars shall be extinguished,
77:9 when heaven shall be split
77:10 when the mountains shall be scattered
77:11 and when the Messengers' time is set,
77:12 to what day shall they be delayed?
77:13 To the Day of Decision.
77:14 And what shall teach thee what is the Day of Decision?
77:15 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:16 Did We not destroy the ancients,
77:17 and then follow them with the later folk?
77:18 So We serve the sinners.
77:19 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:20 Did We not create you of a mean water,
77:21 that We laid within a sure lodging
77:22 till a known term decreed?
77:23 We determined; excellent determiners are We.
77:24 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:25 Made We not the earth to be a housing
77:26 for the living and for the dead?
77:27 Set We not therein soaring mountains? Sated you with sweetest water?
77:28 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:29 Depart to that you cried was lies!
77:30 Depart to a triple-massing shadow
77:31 unshading against the blazing flame
77:32 that shoots sparks like dry faggots,
77:33 sparks like to golden herds.
77:34 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:35 This is the day they shall not speak
77:36 neither be given leave, and excuse themselves.
77:37 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:38 'This is the Day of Decision; We have joined you with the ancients;
77:39 if you have a trick, try you now to trick Me!'
77:40 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:41 Truly the godfearing shall dwell amid shades and fountains,
77:42 and such fruits as their hearts desire:
77:43 'Eat and drink, with wholesome appetite, for that you were working.'
77:44 Even so do We recompense the good-doers.
77:45 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:46 'Eat and take your joy a little; you are sinners!'
77:47 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:48 When it is said to them, 'Prostrate yourselves!' they prostrate not.
77:49 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
77:50 In what discourse after this will they believe?
