85:1  By Heaven with its Houses of the Zodiac,
85:2  and the Promised Day,
85:3  and the witness and the witnessed,
85:4  cursed be the Companions of the Pit —
85:5  the fire well stocked with fuel —
85:6  when they were seated right beside it
85:7  witnessing what they did to the muminun.
85:8  The only reason they punished them was because they had iman in Allah, the Almighty, the All-Praiseworthy —
85:9  Him to whom the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs. Allah is Witness of all things.
85:10  Those who persecute men and women of the muminun, and then do not make tawba, will have the punishment of Hell, will have the punishment of the Burning.
85:11  But those who have iman and do right actions will have Gardens with rivers flowing under them. That is the Great Victory.
85:12  Your Lord´s Assault is very fierce indeed.
85:13  He originates and regenerates.
85:14  He is the Ever-Forgiving, the All-Loving,
85:15  the Possessor of the Throne, the All-Glorious,
85:16  the Doer of whatever He desires.
85:17  Has the story reached you of the legions
85:18  of Pharaoh and Thamud?
85:19  Yet those who are kafir insist on their denial
85:20  while Allah is encircling them from behind.
85:21  It is indeed a Glorious Qur´an
85:22  preserved on a Tablet.
