N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Tidings, The Announcement(an-Naba`)
78:1 ABOUT WHAT are they asking?
78:2 About the fateful tidings ―
78:3 the theme of their disputes.
78:4 But they shall learn;
78:5 then they shall surely learn.
78:6 Did We not spread the earth like a bed,
78:7 and raise the mountains like supporting pillars?
78:8 We created you in pairs,
78:9 and gave you rest in sleep.
78:10 We made the night a mantle,
78:11 and ordained the day for work.
78:12 We built above you seven mighty heavens
78:13 and placed in them a glowing lamp.
78:14 We sent down abundant water from the clouds,
78:15 to bringing forth grain and varied plants,
78:16 and gardens thick with foliage.
78:17 Fixed is the Day of Judgement.
78:18 On that day the Trumpet shall be blown, and you shall come in multitudes.
78:19 The gates of heaven shall swing Open,
78:20 and the mountains shall pass away into a mirage.
78:21 Hell will lie in ambush,
78:22 a home for the transgressors.
78:23 Therein shall they abide long ages;
78:24 therein they shall taste neither refreshment nor any drink,
78:25 save scalding water and decaying filth:
78:26 a fitting recompense.
78:27 They never expected a reckoning,
78:28 and roundly denied Our revelations.
78:29 But We kept account of what they did and wrote it down.
78:30 So taste this: for We shall give you nothing but mounting torment!‘
78:31 As for the righteous, there shall surely be a triumph:
78:32 gardens and vineyards,
78:33 and tender-bosomed maidens for companions:
78:34 a truly overflowing cup.
78:35 Therein shall they hear no idle talk, nor any falsehood.
78:36 Such is the recompense of your Lord ― a gift that will suffice them:
78:37 the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them; the Merciful, from whom they have no power to speak.
78:38 On the day when the Spirit and the angels stand up in their ranks, they shall not speak; except him who shall receive the sanction of the Merciful and declare what is right.
78:39 That day is sure to come. Let him who will, seek a way back to his Lord.
78:40 We have forewarned you of an imminent scourge: The day when man will look upon his works and the unbeliever say: ‘Would that I were dust!‘
