And the book with the record.
In spread-out scrolls.
And the constantly visited house.
And the raised canopy.
And the overflowing sea.
The punishment of your Lord will take place.
It cannot be averted.
On the day the sky will sway.
And the mountains will move.
Woe on that day to those who deny.
Who play in a bubble.
The day they will be forced into the fire of hell.
This is the fire you used to deny.
Is this magic or don´t you see?
Enter it, then have patience or don´t have patience, it will be the same for you, for you are rewarded for what you used to do.
Those who beware (of Allah) will be in gardens and blessings.
Enjoying what their Lord gave them, and their Lord guarded them from the punishment of hell-fire.
Eat and drink legitimately on account of what you used to do.
They will recline on couches arranged in rows, and We will marry them to women of rare beauty.
And those who believed and their descendants followed them in faith, We unite them with their descendants and will not deprive them of any of their work; everyone will secure what he has earned.
And We give them abundance of the fruit and meat they desire.
They will pass on a cup there which gives rise to neither idle talk nor sin.
And boy servants of their own will wait on them as if they were hidden pearls.
And some of them approach others, asking each other,
Saying: we were anxious amongst our families before.
Then Allah bestowed favours on us and guarded us from the punishment of scorching heat.
For we called Him before, as He is the charitable and merciful.
So remind, for by the blessing of your Lord you are neither a fortune teller nor possessed.
Or do they say: a poet, we will wait until his luck runs out.
Say: wait, I shall wait with you.
Or does their imagination dictate this to them, or are they transgressing people?
Or do they say: he made it up? But they don´t believe.
So let them bring a statement comparable to it if they are truthful.
Or were they created from nothing, or are they the creators?
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? But they are not certain.
Or do they have the treasures of your Lord, or are they in charge?
Or do they have a ladder (to access heaven) from which they listen? Then let the one of them who listens bring some clear authority.
Or are daughters for Him and sons for you?
Or do you ask them for a reward and they are burdened by debt?
Or do they have access to the unseen so they write it down?
Or do they want to plot? But those who reject (the truth) are the ones plotted against.
Or do they have a god other than Allah? Glorified is Allah above what they associate.
And if they saw a piece of the sky fall down, they would say: a heap of clouds.
So leave them until they meet the day on which they will be struck down.
The day when their plot will not benefit them the least and they will not be helped.
And for the wrongdoers will be a punishment beyond that, but most of them don´t know.
And have patience with the judgement of Allah, for you are in Our eyes, and glorify the praise of your Lord when you get up.
And during the night, then glorify Him when the stars fade.
