Did you notice?
You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
About what are they asking one another?
About the momentous news:
the thing about which they differ.
No indeed! They will soon know!
Again, no indeed! They will soon know!
Have We not made the earth a flat carpet
and the mountains its pegs?
We have created you in pairs.
We made your sleep a break.
We made the night a cloak.
We made the day for earning a living.
We built seven firm layers above you.
We installed a blazing lamp.
We sent down cascading water from the clouds
so that by it We might bring forth grains and plants
and luxuriant gardens.
The Day of Decision is a fixed appointment:
the Day the Trumpet is blown and you come in droves,
and heaven is opened and becomes doorways,
and the mountains are shifted and become a mirage.
Hell lies in wait
a homecoming for the profligate
remaining in it for countless aeons,
not tasting any coolness there or any drink,
except for boiling water and scalding pus
a fitting recompense.
They did not expect to have a reckoning
and utterly denied Our Signs.
We have recorded all things in writing.
So taste! We will increase you only in punishment.
For those who have taqwa there is triumph:
Gardens and grape vines,
and nubile maidens of similar age,
and an overflowing cup,
where they will hear no prattle and no denial,
a recompense from your Lord, a commensurate gift.
Lord of the heavens and earth and everything between them, the All-Merciful. They will not have the power to speak to Him.
On the Day when the Spirit and the angels stand in ranks, no one will speak, except for him who is authorised by the All-Merciful and says what is right.
That will be the True Day. So whoever wills should take the way back to his Lord.
We have warned you of an imminent punishment on the Day when a man will see what he has done, and the kafir will say, ´Oh, if only I were dust!´
