بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
1 . By the Mount (of Revelation);
2 . By a Decree inscribed
3 . In a Scroll unfolded;
4 . By the much-frequented Fane;
5 . By the Canopy Raised High;
6 . And by the Ocean filled with Swell;-
7 . Verily, the Doom of thy Lord will indeed come to pass;-
8 . There is none can avert it;-
9 . On the Day when the firmament will be in dreadful commotion.
10 . And the mountains will fly hither and thither.
11 . Then woe that Day to those that treat (Truth) as Falsehood;-
12 . That play (and paddle) in shallow trifles.
13 . That Day shall they be thrust down to the Fire of Hell, irresistibly.
14 . "This:, it will be said, "Is the Fire,- which ye were wont to deny!
15 . "Is this then a fake, or is it ye that do not see?
16 . "Burn ye therein: the same is it to you whether ye bear it with patience, or not: Ye but receive the recompense of your (own) deeds."
17 . As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness,-
18 . Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them, and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire.
19 . (To them will be said:) "Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds."
20 . They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.
21 . And those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith,- to them shall We join their families: Nor shall We deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: (Yet) is each individual in pledge for his deeds.
22 . And We shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat, anything they shall desire.
23 . They shall there exchange, one with another, a (loving) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill.
24 . Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them. Youths (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.
25 . They will advance to each other, engaging in mutual enquiry.
26 . They will say: "Aforetime, we were not without fear for the sake of our people.
27 . "But Allah has been good to us, and has delivered us from the Penalty of the Scorching Wind.
28 . "Truly, we did call unto Him from of old: truly it is He, the Beneficent, the Merciful!"
29 . Therefore proclaim thou the praises (of thy Lord): for by the Grace of thy Lord, thou art no (vulgar) soothsayer, nor art thou one possessed.
30 . Or do they say:- "A Poet! we await for him some calamity (hatched) by Time!"
31 . Say thou: "Await ye!- I too will wait along with you!"
32 . Is it that their faculties of understanding urge them to this, or are they but a people transgressing beyond bounds?
33 . Or do they say, "He fabricated the (Message)"? Nay, they have no faith!
34 . Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth!
35 . Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators?
36 . Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief.
37 . Or are the Treasures of thy Lord with them, or are they the managers (of affairs)?
38 . Or have they a ladder, by which they can (climb up to heaven and) listen (to its secrets)? Then let (such a) listener of theirs produce a manifest proof.
39 . Or has He only daughters and ye have sons?
40 . Or is it that thou dost ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-
41 . Or that the Unseen in it their hands, and they write it down?
42 . Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy Allah are themselves involved in a Plot!
43 . Or have they a god other than Allah. Exalted is Allah far above the things they associate with Him!
44 . Were they to see a piece of the sky falling (on them), they would (only) say: "Clouds gathered in heaps!"
45 . So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs, wherein they shall (perforce) swoon (with terror),-
46 . The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing and no help shall be given them.
47 . And verily, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this: But most of them understand not.
48 . Now await in patience the command of thy Lord: for verily thou art in Our eyes: and celebrate the praises of thy Lord the while thou standest forth,
49 . And for part of the night also praise thou Him,- and at the retreat of the stars!
