Consider the mountain!
Consider a Book inscribed…
…on unfurled parchment!
Consider the frequented house [of worship]!
Consider the roof raised high!
Consider the ocean swelled!
Truly, the doom of your Lord will come to pass.
No one can avert it.
[It will be] the day when the sky will be in dreadful commotion.
The mountains will violently shift.
Woe that day to those who reject [God’s truth]…
…and wallow in shallow discourse.
That day they will be forcibly thrust into the fire of Hell.
“This is the fire you denied.
“Is it really fake, or do you not understand?
“Burn therein. Bear it patiently or not patiently; it’s all the same for you. Truly, you receive the recompense of your deeds.”
Truly, the righteous will be in gardens, with happiness.
[They will] enjoy what their Lord has given them. Their Lord will deliver them from the penalty of Hell.
“Eat and drink. Be satisfied because of your past deeds.”
They will recline on couches arranged in rows. We will join them with wide-eyed companions.
The believers and their believing family members will be reunited. We will not deprive them any of their earnings. Each individual is pledged for his/her deeds.
We will bestow upon them fruit and meats as they desire.
They will exchange, one with another, a cup free of foolishness, free of sin.
Going around to serve them will be [angelic] youths that seem like guarded pearls.
They will approach each other in mutual discussion.
They will say, “Previously, we were in fear concerning our families.
But Allah has been good to us. [He] has protected us from the agony of the scorching wind.
Truly, we previously called to him. Truly, He is the Gracious Benefactor, the Most Merciful.”
Remind then, for, by the grace of your Lord, you are not a sorcerer or one possessed.
Do they say, “A poet! We watch for some calamity for him over time”?
Say, “Wait. Indeed, I wait along with you.”
Do their own minds urge them toward this? Or are they just a sinful people?
Do they say, “He made this up”? Nonsense! They have no faith.
Let them produce a recital like it, if they speak the truth.
Were they created from nothing, or were they the creators?
Did they create the skies and Earth? Nonsense! They have no certainty.
Are the treasures of your Lord with them, or are they the managers?
Do they have a ladder by which they can listen [to the secrets of Heaven]? Let their listener produce obvious evidence.
Has He only daughters while you have sons?
Have you asked for a reward so that they are burdened with a load of debt?
Is the unseen with them so that they can write it?
Do they intend a plot? Those who disbelieve are already involved in a plot.
Do they have a god other than Allah? Allah is exalted far above the things they associate with Him.
If they saw a piece of the sky falling, they would say, “A mass of clouds!”
Leave them alone until they encounter that day of theirs in which they will feel faint.
[It will be] the day when their plotting will not help them at all. No help will be given to them.
Truly, for those who sin, there is a punishment besides this. Most of them do not understand, however.
Patiently wait for the command of your Lord. Truly, you are in Our sight. Celebrate the praises of your Lord while standing.
For part of the night and when the stars retreat, praise Him.
