78:1  What are they asking about
78:2  About the Great News
78:3  On which they disagree
78:4  Nay, they will soon come to know
78:5  Nay, again, they will soon come to know
78:6  Did We not make the earth a cradle for you
78:7  And the mountains as pegs
78:8  And We have created you in pairs
78:9  And We have made sleep so that you can rest
78:10  And We have made the night as a cloak
78:11  And made the day, life. ('Ma'ash' = Economy = Subsistence = All activities of life = The state of living)
78:12  And We have built above you seven Cosmic Systems
78:13  And We have placed a Dazzling Lamp
78:14  And We send down from the rainy clouds abundant water
78:15  Thereby to bring forth grain and plant
78:16  And gardens of dense foliage
78:17  Behold, the Day of Decision is a thing appointed
78:18  A Day when the Trumpet is blown, and you come in throngs
78:19  When the gates of the sky are flung open. (Mankind learn about the high space)
78:20  And the 'great ones' lose power as if they were mirage. (20:105), (56:5), (77:10), (81:3)
78:21  Behold, Hell lurks in ambush
78:22  A home for the transgressors
78:23  They will abide in it for ages. (Hell is not forever. Allah's Grace comes to rescue the dwellers of the Hellfire (6:128), (11:107), (40:12). While the abode of Paradise is Eternal)
78:24  Therein they taste not coolness of comfort nor drink of satisfaction
78:25  Only burning anguish and ice-cold darkness. (38:37)
78:26  A befitting requital
78:27  For, behold, they never hoped to be held accountable
78:28  And they called Our Messages false with an adamant denial
78:29  But We place on Record everything
78:30  So, now, taste nothing but increasing punishment
78:31  Behold, there is supreme fulfillment for those who walk aright
78:32  Beautiful gardens and vineyards
78:33  And splendid companions, well-matched. (56:37)
78:34  And a cup of delight overflowing
78:35  They shall hear no senseless talk, nor falsification therein
78:36  Reward from your Lord, a generous gift
78:37  Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is in between them, the Beneficent. None has the power to lecture Him
78:38  On the Day when the Divine Energy and the Universal forces stand forth in ranks, none will speak but he whom the Beneficent allows and say only what is right
78:39  That Day will be the Moment of Truth. So whoever wills, let him take the path that leads toward his Sustainer
78:40  Behold, We warn you of a retribution near at hand. A Day when every person will see what his own hands have sent forth. And when the denier of the Truth will say, "Oh, I wish I were mere dust."
