Jump to: navigation, search

(76:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.

(76:1) Was there not a period of the time when the human being was nothing to even be mentioned?

(76:2) We have created the human from sperm that is composite, We test him, so We made him hear and see.

(76:3) We have guided him to the path, either to be thankful or to reject.

(76:4) We have prepared for the ingrates chains and collars and a blazing fire.

(76:5) As for the pious, they will drink from a cup which has the scent of camphor.

(76:6) A spring from which the servants of God drink, it gushes forth abundantly.

(76:7) They fulfill their vows, and they fear a day whose consequences are widespread.

(76:8) And they feed food out of love to the poor and the orphan and the captive (prisoners of war).

(76:9) "We only feed you for the sake of God; we do not desire from you any reward or thanks."

(76:10) "We fear from our Lord a day, which will be horrible and difficult."

(76:11) So God shielded them from the evil of that day, and He cast towards them a look and a smile.

(76:12) He rewarded them for their patience with paradise and silk.

(76:13) They are reclining in it on raised couches, they do not have in it excessive sun nor bitter cold.

(76:14) The shade is close upon them, and the fruit is hanging low within reach.

(76:15) They are served upon with bowls of silver and glasses of crystal.

(76:16) Crystal laced with silver, measured accordingly.

(76:17) They are given to drink in it from a cup which has the scent of ginger.

(76:18) A spring therein which is called 'Salsabeel'.

(76:19) They are encircled with eternal children. If you see them you will think they are pearls which have been scattered about.

(76:20) If you look, then you will see a blessing and a great dominion.

(76:21) They will have garments of fine green silk, necklaces and bracelets from silver, and their Lord will give them a cleansing drink.

76:22) "This is the reward for you, and your struggle is appreciated."

(76:23) We have sent down to you the Quran at once.

(76:24) So be patient for the judgment of your Lord, and do not obey from them any sinner or ingrate.

(76:25) Remember the name of your Lord morning and evening.

(76:26) From the night you shall prostrate to Him and praise Him throughout.

(76:27) These people like the current life, and they ignore a heavy day.

(76:28) We have created them, and We have made them resolute. When we wished, We replaced their kind completely.

(76:29) This is a reminder, so let whoever wills take a path to his Lord.

(76:30) You cannot will, except if God wills. God is Knowledgeable, Wise.

(76:31) He admits whoever/whomever He wills to His mercy. As for the wicked, He has prepared for them a painful retribution.
