Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah The Mount, The Mountain(at-Tur)
52:1 By the mountain,
52:2 by a Scripture inscribed
52:3 in unrolled parch-ment,
52:4 by the much-visited House,
52:5 by the raised canopy,
52:6 by the ocean ever filled,
52:7 [Prophet], your Lord’s punishment is coming––
52:8 it cannot be put off––
52:9 on the Day when the sky sways back and forth
52:10 and the mountains float away.
52:11 Woe on that Day to those who deny the Truth,
52:12 who amuse themselves with idle chatter:
52:13 on that Day they will be thrust into the Fire of Hell.
52:14 ‘This is the Fire you used to deny.
52:15 So is this sorcery? Do you still not see it?
52:16 Burn in it––it makes no difference whether you bear it patiently or not–– you are only being repaid for what you have done.’
52:17 Those who were mindful of God are in Gardens and in bliss,
52:18 rejoicing in their Lord’s gifts: He has saved them from the torment of the Blaze,
52:19 ‘Eat and drink with healthy enjoyment as a reward for what you have done.’
52:20 They are comfortably seated on couches arranged in rows; We pair them with beautiful-eyed maidens;
52:21 We unite the believers with their offspring who followed them in faith–– We do not deny them any of the rewards for their deeds: each person is in pledge for his own deeds––
52:22 We provide them with any fruit or meat they desire.
52:23 They pass around a cup which does not lead to any idle talk or sin.
52:24 Devoted youths like hidden pearls wait on them.
52:25 They turn to one another and say,
52:26 ‘When we were still with our families [on earth] we used to live in fear––
52:27 God has been gracious to us and saved us from the torment of intense heat-
52:28 We used to pray to Him: He is the Good, the Merciful One.’
52:29 So [Prophet] remind [people]. By the grace of your Lord [Prophet], you are neither oracle nor madman.
52:30 If they say, ‘He is only a poet: we shall await his fate,’
52:31 say, ‘Wait if you wish; I too am waiting’-
52:32 does their reason really tell them to do this, or are they simply insolent people?
52:33 If they say, ‘He has made it up himself’- they certainly do not believe-
52:34 let them produce one like it, if what they say is true.
52:35 Were they created without any agent? Were they the creators?
52:36 Did they create the heavens and the earth? No! They do not have faith.
52:37 Do they possess your Lord’s treasures or have control over them?
52:38 Do they have a ladder to climb, in order to eavesdrop [on Heaven’s secrets]? Let their eavesdropper produce clear proof.
52:39 Does God have daughters while you have sons?
52:40 Do you [Prophet] demand a payment from them that would burden them with debt?
52:41 Do they have [access to] the unseen? Could they write it down?
52:42 Do they think they can ensnare you? It is the disbelievers who have been ensnared.
52:43 Do they really have another god besides God? God is far above anything they set alongside Him.
52:44 Even if they saw a piece of heaven falling down on them, they would say, ‘Just a heap of clouds,’
52:45 so leave them, Prophet, until they face the Day when they will be thunderstruck,
52:46 the Day when their snares will be of no use to them, when they will get no help.
52:47 Another punishment awaits the evildoers, though most of them do not realize it.
52:48 Wait patiently [Prophet] for your Lord’s judgement: you are under Our watchful eye. Celebrate the praise of your Lord when you rise.
52:49 Glorify Him at night and at the fading of the stars.
