Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Tidings, The Announcement(an-Naba`)
78:1 Of what do they ask each other?-
78:2 Of the mighty information
78:3 whereon they do dispute?
78:4 nay, they shall know too well!
78:5 Again, nay, they shall know too well!
78:6 Have we not set the earth as a couch,
78:7 and the mountains as stakes,
78:8 and created you in pairs,
78:9 and made your sleep for rest,
78:10 and made the night a garment,
78:11 and made the day for livelihood,
78:12 and built above you seven solid (heavens)
78:13 and set a burning lamp,
78:14 and, sent down from the rain-expressing clouds water pouring forth,
78:15 to bring out thereby the grain and herb
78:16 and gardens thickly planted?
78:17 Verily, the day of decision is an appointed time;
78:18 and the day when the trumpet shall be blown, and ye shall come in troops,
78:19 and the heavens shall be opened, and shall be all doors,
78:20 and the mountains shall be moved, and shall be like a mirage!
78:21 Verily, hell is an ambuscade;
78:22 a reward for the outrageous,
78:23 to tarry therein for ages.
78:24 They shall not taste therein cool nor drink,
78:25 but only boiling water and pus;-
78:26 a fit reward!
78:27 Verily, they did not hope for the account;
78:28 but they ever said our signs were lies.
78:29 Everything have we remembered in a book.
78:30 'Then taste, for we will only increase your torment!'
78:31 Verily, for the pious is a blissful place,-
78:32 gardens and vineyards,
78:33 and girls with swelling breasts of the same age as themselves,
78:34 and a brimming cup;
78:35 they shall hear therein no folly and no lie;-
78:36 a reward from thy Lord, a sufficient gift!
78:37 The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and what is between them both,- the Merciful,- they cannot obtain audience of Him!
78:38 The day when the Spirit and the angels shall stand in ranks, they shall not speak save to whom the Merciful permits, and who speaks aright.
78:39 That is the true day; and whoso pleases let him take to a resort unto his Lord!
78:40 Verily, we have warned you of a torment that is nigh: on a day when man shall see what his two hands have sent forward; and the misbeliever shall say, 'Would that I were dust!'
