78:1  Of what ask they of one another
78:2  Of the great NEWS
78:3  The theme of their disputes
78:4  Nay! they shall certainly knows its truth
78:5  Again. Nay! they shall certainly know it
78:6  Have we not made the Earth a couch
78:7  And the mountains its tent-stakes
78:8  We have created you of two sexes
78:9  And ordained your sleep for rest
78:10  And ordained the night as a mantle
78:11  And ordained the day for gaining livelihood
78:12  And built above you seven solid heavens
78:13  And placed therein a burning lamp
78:14  And we send down water in abundance from the rain-clouds
78:15  That we may bring forth by it corn and herbs
78:16  And gardens thick with trees
78:17  Lo! the day of Severance is fixed
78:18  The day when there shall be a blast on the trumpet, and ye shall come in crowds
78:19  And the heaven shall be opened and be full of portals
78:20  And the mountains shall be set in motion, and melt into thin vapour
78:21  Hell truly shall be a place of snares
78:22  The home of transgressors
78:23  To abide therein ages
78:24  No coolness shall they taste therein nor any drink
78:25  Save boiling water and running sores
78:26  Meet recompense
78:27  For they looked not forward to their account
78:28  And they gave the lie to our signs, charging them with falsehood
78:29  But we noted and wrote down all
78:30  "Taste this then: and we will give you increase of nought but torment."
78:31  But, for the God-fearing is a blissful abode
78:32  Enclosed gardens and vineyards
78:33  And damsels with swelling breasts, their peers in age
78:34  And a full cup
78:35  There shall they hear no vain discourse nor any falsehood
78:36  A recompense from thy Lord-sufficing gift!
78:37  Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and of all that between them lieth - the God of Mercy! But not a word shall they obtain from Him
78:38  On the day whereon the Spirit and the Angels shall be ranged in order, they shall not speak: save he whom the God of Mercy shall permit, and who shall say that which is right
78:39  This is the sure day. Whoso then will, let him take the path of return to his Lord
78:40  Verily, we warn you of a chastisement close at hand: The day on which a man shall see the deeds which his hands have sent before him; and when the unbeliever shall say, "Oh! would I were dust!"
