An-Naba ("The Announcement")
(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?
(78:13) 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!"
