Maududi rendition of Surah The Tidings, The Announcement(an-Naba`)
78:1 About what are they asking one another?
78:2 Is it about the awesome tiding
78:3 that they are in utter disagreement?
78:4 No indeed; soon will they come to know;
78:5 again, no indeed; soon will they come to know.
78:6 Have We not spread the earth like a bed,
78:7 and fixed the mountains like pegs,
78:8 and created you in pairs (as men and women),
78:9 and made your sleep a means of repose,
78:10 and made the night a covering,
78:11 and made the day to seek livelihood,
78:12 and built above you seven strong firmaments,
78:13 and placed therein a hot, shining lamp,
78:14 and sent down abundant water from the clouds
78:15 so that We may thereby bring forth grain and vegetation,
78:16 and gardens dense with foliage?
78:17 Surely the Day of Judgement has an appointed time;
78:18 the Day when the Trumpet shall be blown, and you will come forth in multitudes;
78:19 and when the sky shall be opened up and will become all doors;
78:20 and the mountains will be set in motion and become a mirage.
78:21 Surely the Hell is an ambush,
78:22 a resort for the rebellious;
78:23 therein they shall abide for ages,
78:24 they shall taste in it no coolness, nor any pleasant drink
78:25 save boiling water and wash of the wounds;
78:26 a befitting recompense for their deeds.
78:27 For indeed they did not look forward to any reckoning,
78:28 and roundly denied Our Signs as false.
78:29 And everything have We recorded in a Book.
78:30 So taste (the fruit of your deeds). We shall only increase your torment.
78:31 Surely the state of triumph awaits the God-fearing:
78:32 gardens and vineyards,
78:33 and youthful maidens of like age,
78:34 and an overflowing cup.
78:35 Therein they shall hear no idle talk, nor any falsehood;
78:36 a recompense from your Lord and an ample reward
78:37 from the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of that which is between them; the Most Merciful Lord before Whom none dare utter a word.
78:38 The Day when the Spirit and the angels are ranged row on row. None shall speak save he whom the Merciful Lord will permit; and he too will speak what is right.
78:39 That Day is sure to come. So let him who will seek a resort with his Lord.
78:40 Lo! We warn you of a chastisement near at hand; the Day when a man will look on what his own hands have sent forth, and the unbelievers shall say: "Oh would that I were utter dust."
