and by a Book written down
and by the visited house,
and by the soaring roof,
and by the over-full, ferocious sea –
your Lord’s punishment will come to pass;
no power can stop it!
Even the sky will shudder and judder that Day,
and the mountains will float.
Ruined that Day will be the deniers,
who were absorbed in useless projects.
That Day they will be thrust into the fire of Hell.
“This is the Fire you use to deny.
Is this magic? Or do you not see?
Burn in it! Whether you are patient or not it is the same; you are being rewarded for what you did.
The righteous will be in Gardens full of luxuries,
enjoying what the Lord gave them, and protected them from the punishment of Hell.
They shall be told
: “Eat, drink and be merry, a reward for what you did.”
rest on comfortable
arranged in rows, and We shall marry them with spouses with beautiful eyes
The believers whose children followed them in faith will be united with them in Paradise without their parents’ good deeds being diminished in value. Each person is answerable for his deeds.
We shall feed them with all the kinds of fruits and meat they desire.
A cup of wine
passed around will not cause drunken uproar or a sin.
Serving them will be young people as beautiful
as hidden pearls.
Turning to each other, they will ask
“were we not fearful about the fate of our families?

Or do their minds tell them to say this? Or are they simply a bunch of
Or they say, “He has made it up.” Never will they believe.
So let them bring a book like it if they are truthful.
Were they created without a creator? Or are they themselves creators?
Or did they create the Heavens and the Earth? Nay, they will never be convinced.
Or is it that they possess the treasures of your Lord, or have control over them?
Or do they have a ladder that allows them to eavesdrop on the secrets of the Heavens
? Let their eavesdropper bring clear proof.
Or is it that He has daughters and you have sons?
Or do you ask them for a wage for this guidance
that would make them heavily indebted?
Or do they have the knowledge of the unseen

Or do they want to deceive you? The disbelievers only deceive themselves.
Or do they have a god besides Allah? Glory be to Allah; He is far above what they associate with Him
Even if they saw a part of the sky fall, they would say, “It’s merely heaps of cloud.”
So leave them till they encounter the Day they’ll die.
A Day when their plots will not benefit them at all, neither will they be helped.
For the evildoers there is another punishment in this world
before that one, but most of them don’t know
Therefore, wait patiently for your Lord’s judgement; you are always
in Our sight, so glorify and praise your Lord whenever you stand for the prayer
at night glorify Him till the stars fade away
