By (the Mountain) Tur
And by the Book inscribed
(Which is) on an Unfolded Scroll
And by the House populated (by the angels i.e., the Ka‘ba in heaven)
And by the Lofty Roof (i.e., the High Heaven or the Most Exalted Throne)
And by the swelling sea
Surely, the torment of your Lord will do take place
The Day when the heaven will shake with a terrible tremor
And the mountains (leaving their locations) will fly fast (like clouds) and scatter (like dust particles)
So on that Day, woe to those who belie
Those who are playing a game of negligence, rapt in falsehood (i.e., absurdity)
The Day when they will be forcefully pushed towards the Fire of Hell
(It will be said to them:) ‘This is the Fire of Hell you used to belie
So is it magic, or do you not see
Enter it. Then it is all the same for you whether you observe patience, or you do not observe patience. You will be paid only for those deeds which you used to do.
Surely, the Godfearing will be in the Gardens and Bliss
They will be delighted at (the bestowals) their Lord will have blessed them with. And their Lord will keep them safe from the punishment of Hell
(It will be said to them:) ‘Relish food and drink as a reward for the (pious) deeds which you used to do.
They will be reclining (sitting) on couches arranged in rows, and We will marry them to maidens with fair colour (and) fascinating eyes
And those who believe and whose children follow them in faith, We shall also unite their children with them (in the ranks of Paradise even if their actions would not fall in that grade. It would be in the honour of their pious fathers). And We shall also not reduce in anyway the reward of the actions of their (pious fathers. Besides this,) everyone will be held in (reward and punishment for) his own works
And We will keep giving them fruit and meat more and more as they desire
There, they will take the cups (of holy drink) by grabbing. This (holy drink of Paradise) will be free of foolish talk and sinful acts
And (the serving) youths will go round them as if they were pearls kept hidden in covers
And they will turn to one another, enquiring well-being
They will say: ‘Surely before this, we used to live in fear (of Allah’s torment) in our homes
So Allah has been Gracious to favour us and has saved us from the punishment of the Fire of Hell
Indeed, we used to worship Him alone beforehand. Surely, He is Most Gracious, Ever-Merciful.
So, (O Esteemed Beloved,) continue to admonish (them). By the grace and blessing of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer (the one who gives news through the jinn) nor a madman
Do the disbelievers say: ‘(He is) a poet for whom we look forward to some temporal disasters’
Say: ‘Wait on, I am also waiting together with you (for your destruction).
Do their mental faculties suggest them this (foolishness), or are they rioters and rebels
Or do they say: ‘He (the Messenger) has invented it (the Qur’an) himself’? (No indeed;) rather they simply do not believe (in the truth)
So let them produce a treatise like this (Qur’an) if they are truthful
Have they been created by nothing, or are they themselves the creators
Or did they create the heavens and the earth themselves? (No,) in fact, they do not have any faith (in the truth)
Or do they own the treasures of your Lord? Or are they guards and watchmen over them
Or do they have any ladder (by which they ascend) and listen stealthily (to the heaven)? So let the listener amongst them bring the clear proof
Are there daughters for Him (the Lord) and sons for you
Do you ask them for wages that they are weighed down with debt
Do they have (the knowledge of) the unseen that they write down
Do they seek to deceive (you) by trickery? Those who disbelieve are being caught in their own trap
Do they have any god other than Allah? Glory be to Allah, above all what they set up as a partner (with Allah)
And if they see a fragment of the sky falling (on them, even then) they will say: ‘It is a layered (thick) cloud.
So leave them (in their plight) till they meet that Day of theirs when they will be destroyed
The Day when their plots will be of no use to them, nor will they be helped
And for those who are committed to doing wrong, there is a torment for them besides this torment as well but most of them do not know
And, (O Esteemed Beloved, do not grieve over what they say). Wait patiently for the command of your Lord. Surely, you are (at all times) before Our Eyes.* And glorify your Lord with His praise whenever you stand forth
And also glorify Him during the hours of the night and (in later part of it) when the stars fade out
