You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
By the spreaders spreading
And those carrying loads
And those moving gently
And those distributing as commanded
What you are promised is true
Judgment will take place
By the sky that is woven
You differ in what you say
Averted from it is he who is averted
Perish the imposters
Those who are dazed in ignorance
They ask, 'When is the Day of Judgment?'
The Day they are presented to the Fire
'Taste your ordeal. This is what you used to challenge.'
But the pious are amidst gardens and springs
Receiving what their Lord has given them. They were virtuous before that
They used to sleep a little at night
And at dawn, they would pray for pardon
And in their wealth, there was a share for the beggar and the deprived
And on earth are signs for the convinced
And within yourselves. Do you not see
And in the heaven is your livelihood, and what you are promised
By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is as true as the fact that you speak
Has the story of Abraham's honorable guests reached you
When they entered upon him, they said, 'Peace.' He said, 'Peace, strangers.'
Then he slipped away to his family, and brought a fatted calf
He set it before them. He said, 'Will you not eat?'
And he harbored fear of them. They said, 'Do not fear,' and they announced to him the good news of a knowledgeable boy
His wife came forward crying. She clasped her face, and said, 'A barren old woman?'
They said, 'Thus spoke your Lord. He is the Wise, the Knowing.'
He said, 'What is your business, O envoys?'
They said, 'We are sent to a people guilty of sin.'
'To unleash upon them rocks of clay.'
'Marked by your Lord for the excessive.'
We evacuated all the believers who were in it
But found in it only one household of Muslims
And We left in it a sign for those who fear the painful punishment
And in Moses. We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority
But he turned away with his warlords, and said, 'A sorcerer or a madman.'
So We seized him and his troops, and threw them into the sea, and He was to blame
And in Aad. We unleashed against them the devastating wind
It spared nothing it came upon, but rendered it like decayed ruins
And in Thamood. They were told, 'Enjoy yourselves for a while.'
But they defied the command of their Lord, so the lightning struck them as they looked on
They could not rise up, nor could they find help
And before that, the people of Noah. They were immoral people
We constructed the universe with power, and We are expanding it
And the earth—We spread it out—How well We prepared it
We created all things in pairs, so that you may reflect and ponder
'So flee towards God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.'
'And do not set up any other god with God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.'
Likewise, no messenger came to those before them, but they said, 'A sorcerer or a madman.'
Did they recommend it to one another? In fact, they are rebellious people
So turn away from them; you are not to blame
And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers
I did not create the jinn and the humans except to worship Me
I need no livelihood from them, nor do I need them to feed Me
God is the Provider, the One with Power, the Strong
Those who do wrong will have their turn, like the turn of their counterparts, so let them not rush Me
So woe to those who disbelieve because of that Day of theirs which they are promised
