A questioner asks about the punishment to befall,
Those who reject (the truth), which cannot be averted,
From Allah, who owns all connections.
The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him on a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
So have beautiful patience.
They see it far off.
And We see it close by.
On the day the sky will be like sludge.
And the mountains will be like wool.
And dear friends will ask another.
They see them, and the sinful would like to be ransomed from the punishment on that day by his children,
And his spouse and his brother,
And his family, which shelters him,
And all who are on earth, so he could be rescued.
But no, it is ablaze,
It tears away the flesh,
It calls whoever turned away and turned his back,
And hoarded and accumulated.
For man has been created impatient,
When harm afflicts him, he is anxious,
And when good afflicts him, he withholds,
Except those who pray,
Who are constant in their prayers,
And in whose wealth there is a known share,
For those who ask and are deprived,
And who confirm the day of repayment,
And who fear the punishment of their Lord,
For nobody is safe from the punishment of their Lord,
And who guard their chastity,
Except with regard to their partners or those in their possession, for then they are not to blame.
Then if anyone desires beyond that, then those exceed the limits.
And who look after their trust and agreements,
And who uphold their testimony,
And who guard their prayers,
They will be honoured in gardens.
So what is the matter with those who reject (the truth) that they run towards you,
In scattered groups from the right and the left?
Does every one of them hope to enter a garden of blessings?
But no, We created them from what they know.
But I swear by the Lord of the sunrises and sunsets that we are able,
To replace them with better than them, and We will not be outdone.
So leave them to busy themselves and play until they meet their promised day.
The day they will rapidly emerge from the graves as if they were racing towards a goal.
Their eyes downcast, covered in humiliation, that is the day they were promised.
