Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Tidings, The Announcement(an-Naba`)
78:1 About what are they asking one another?
78:2 About the momentous news:
78:3 the thing about which they differ.
78:4 No indeed! They will soon know!
78:5 Again, no indeed! They will soon know!
78:6 Have We not made the earth a flat carpet
78:7 and the mountains its pegs?
78:8 We have created you in pairs.
78:9 We made your sleep a break.
78:10 We made the night a cloak.
78:11 We made the day for earning a living.
78:12 We built seven firm layers above you.
78:13 We installed a blazing lamp.
78:14 We sent down cascading water from the clouds
78:15 so that by it We might bring forth grains and plants
78:16 and luxuriant gardens.
78:17 The Day of Decision is a fixed appointment:
78:18 the Day the Trumpet is blown and you come in droves,
78:19 and heaven is opened and becomes doorways,
78:20 and the mountains are shifted and become a mirage.
78:21 Hell lies in wait —
78:22 a homecoming for the profligate
78:23 remaining in it for countless aeons,
78:24 not tasting any coolness there or any drink,
78:25 except for boiling water and scalding pus —
78:26 a fitting recompense.
78:27 They did not expect to have a reckoning
78:28 and utterly denied Our Signs.
78:29 We have recorded all things in writing.
78:30 So taste! We will increase you only in punishment.
78:31 For those who have taqwa there is triumph:
78:32 Gardens and grape vines,
78:33 and nubile maidens of similar age,
78:34 and an overflowing cup,
78:35 where they will hear no prattle and no denial,
78:36 a recompense from your Lord, a commensurate gift.
78:37 Lord of the heavens and earth and everything between them, the All-Merciful. They will not have the power to speak to Him.
78:38 On the Day when the Spirit and the angels stand in ranks, no one will speak, except for him who is authorised by the All-Merciful and says what is right.
78:39 That will be the True Day. So whoever wills should take the way back to his Lord.
78:40 We have warned you of an imminent punishment on the Day when a man will see what he has done, and the kafir will say, ´Oh, if only I were dust!´
