(78:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.

(78:1) What are they inquiring about?

(78:2) About the grand news.

(78:3) The one which they are in disagreement about.

(78:4) No, they will come to know.

(78:5) No, then again, they will come to know.

(78:6) Did We not make the earth a resting ground?

(78:7) The mountains as pegs?

(78:8) We created you in pairs?

(78:9) We made your sleep for resting?

(78:10) We made the night as a covering?

(78:11) We made the day to work in?

(78:12) We constructed above you seven strongholds?

(78:13) We made a flaming light?

(78:14) We sent down abundant water from the rain clouds.

(78:15) To bring out with it seeds and plants.

(78:16) Gardens of thick growth?

(78:17) The day of Separation is an appointed time.

(78:18) The day when the horn is blown and you come in crowds.

(78:19) The heaven is opened, so it becomes gates.

(78:20) The mountains will be moved as if they were a mirage.

(78:21) For hell is in wait.

(78:22) For the transgressors it is a dwelling place.

(78:23) They will abide in it for eons.

(78:24) They will not taste anything cold in it nor drink.

(78:25) Except for boiling water and filthy discharge.

(78:26) An exact recompense. The Surprise

(78:27) They did not expect a reckoning/computation.

(78:28) They denied Our signs greatly.

(78:29) Everything We have counted in a record.

(78:30) So taste it, for no increase will come to you from Us except in retribution.

(78:31) As for the righteous, they will have success.

(78:32) Gardens and vineyards.

(78:33) Impressive peers.

(78:34) A cup that is full.

(78:35) They do not hear in it any vile talk or lies.

(78:36) A reward from your Lord, in recognition for what is done. Not Intercession; Only Testimony to the Truth

(78:37) The Lord of heavens and earth and what is between them, the Gracious. They do not posses any authority beside Him.

(78:38) The day when the Spirit and the angels stand in line, none will speak unless the Gracious permits him and he speaks what is true.

(78:39) That is the day of truth, so let whoever wills seek a way to his Lord.

(78:40) I have warned you of a retribution which is close, the day when man will look at what he has brought forth and the ingrate will say, "I wish I were dust!"
