76:1  Did there not pass over man a long space of time; during which he was a thing not worthy of remembrance
76:2  Verily we have created man of the mingled seed of both sexes, that We might prove him: And We have made him to hear and to see
76:3  We have surely directed him in the way; whether he be grateful, or ungrateful
76:4  Verily we have prepared for the unbelievers chains, and collars, and burning fire
76:5  But the just shall drink of a cup of wine, mixed with the water of Cafur
76:6  a fountain whereof the servants of God shall drink; they shall convey the same by channels whithersoever they please
76:7  These fulfil their vow, and dread the day, the evil whereof will disperse itself far abroad
76:8  and give food unto the poor, and the orphan, and the bondman, for his sake
76:9  saying, we feed you for God's sake only: We desire no recompense from you, nor any thanks
76:10  Verily we dread, from our Lord, a dismal and calamitous day
76:11  Wherefore God shall deliver them from the evil of that day, and shall cast on them brightness of countenance, and joy
76:12  and shall reward them, for their patient persevering, with a garden, and silk garments
76:13  Therein shall they repose themselves on couches; they shall see therein neither sun nor moon
76:14  and the shades thereof shall be near spreading above them, and the fruits thereof shall hang low, so as to be easily gathered
76:15  And their attendants shall go round about unto them, with vessels of silver, and goblets
76:16  The bottles shall be bottles of silver shining like glass; they shall determine the measure thereof by their wish
76:17  And therein shall they be given to drink of a cup of wine, mixed with the water of Zenjebil
76:18  a fountain in paradise named Salsabil
76:19  And youths, which shall continue for ever in their bloom, shall go round to attend them; when thou seest them, thou shalt think them to be scattered pearls
76:20  And when thou lookest, there shalt thou behold delights, and a great kingdom
76:21  Upon them shall be garments of fine green silk, and of brocades, and they shall be adorned with bracelets of silver: And their Lord shall give them to drink of a most pure liquor
76:22  and shall say unto them, verily this is your reward: And your endeavour is gratefully accepted
76:23  Verily We have sent down unto thee the Koran, by a gradual revelation
76:24  Wherefore patiently wait the judgment of thy Lord; and obey not any wicked person or unbeliever among them
76:25  And commemorate the name of thy Lord, in the morning, and in the evening
76:26  And during some part of the night worship Him, and praise Him a long part of the night
76:27  Verily these men love the transitory life, and leave behind them the heavy day of judgment
76:28  We have created them, and have strengthened their joints; and when We please, We will substitute others like unto them, in their stead
76:29  Verily this is an admonition: And whoso willeth, taketh the way unto his Lord
76:30  But ye shall not will, unless God willeth; for God is knowing, and wise
76:31  He leadeth whom He pleaseth into his mercy: But for the unjust hath He prepared a grievous punishment
