You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
and an Inscribed Book
on an Unfurled Scroll,
by the Visited House,
by the Raised Canopy,
by the Overflowing Ocean:
your Lord´s punishment will certainly take place.
No one can ward it off.
On the Day when heaven sways to and fro
and the mountains shift about,
woe that Day to the deniers,
who play at frivolous games:
the Day they are shoved roughly into the Fire of Hell:
´This is the Fire which you denied!
So is this magic? Or is it that you do not see?
Roast in it! And bear it patiently or do not bear it patiently. It makes no difference either way. You are simply being repaid for what you did.´
The people who have taqwa will be in Gardens of Delight,
savouring what their Lord has given them. Their Lord will safeguard them from the punishment of the Blazing Fire:
´Eat and drink with relish for what you did.´
They will recline on couches ranged in rows and We will marry them to dark-eyed maidens.
And We will unite those who had iman with their offspring, who followed them in iman, and We will not undervalue their own actions in any way. Every man is in pledge for what he earned.
We will supply them with any kind of fruit and meat that they desire.
They will pass round there a drinking cup to one another with no foolish talk and no wrong action in it.
Circulating among them there will be youths like hidden pearls.
Some of them will come up to others and they will question one another.
They will say, ´Beforehand we used to live in fear among our families.
But Allah was gracious to us and safeguarded us from the punishment of the searing wind.
Beforehand we certainly used to call on Him because He is the All-Good, the Most Merciful.´
Remind them then! For, by the blessing of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer nor a madman.
Or do they say, ´He is a poet and We are waiting for something bad to happen to him´?
Say: ´Wait then! I am waiting with you.´
Is it their intellects that direct them to say this or is it that they are an unbridled people?
Or do they say, ´He has simply made it up´? No, the truth is they have no iman.
Let them produce a discourse like it if they are telling the truth.
Or were they created out of nothing, or are they the creators?
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? No, in truth they have no certainty.
Or do they possess the treasuries of your Lord or do they have control of them?
Or do they have a ladder on which they listen? Then let their listener bring clear evidence.
Or does He have daughters whereas you have sons?
Or do you ask them for a wage so they are weighed down with debt?
Or is the Unseen in their hands so they can write out what is to happen?
Or do they desire to dupe you? But the duped ones are those who are kafir.
Or do they have some god other than Allah? Glory be to Allah above any idol they propose!
If they saw a lump of heaven falling down, they would just say, ´Banked-up clouds!´
Leave them then until they meet their Day when they will be struck down by the Blast:
the Day their ploys will not profit them at all and they will not be helped.
And those who do wrong will have a punishment besides that but most of them do not know it.
So wait steadfastly for the judgement of your Lord you are certainly before Our eyes. And glorify and praise your Lord when you get up.
And glorify Him in the night and when the stars fade out.
