Was there (ever) a period of time when man was not worth a mention
We have certainly created man from a drop of mixed semen, (in order) to test him. Therefore, We made him capable of hearing and seeing
Indeed, We (also) showed man the (right) path. (Now), he may either (accept and) be grateful, or reject (and be ungrateful)
We have certainly prepared chains, shackles and the blazing fire for the unbelievers
While the righteous ones would get to drink from cups filled with camphor flavored wine
(Gushing from) the springs. The servants of Allah will drink right from it. They would channel the springs with ease
(Because they) fulfill (their) vows, and fear the day of widespread disaster
And for the sake of His love, they feed the poor (and needy), the orphans and the captives
(They say), "For the sake of Allah, we feed you. We do not expect anything from you in return, not even thanks!"
"In fact, we fear a dreary day of affliction from our Lord, a very long day (indeed)!"
But, Allah will protect them from the evil (and torture) of such a day; He would grant them the glow of beauty and joy
The paradise _ and (a wardrobe of) fine silk (garments) _ would be their reward for what they patiently endured
In the paradise, they would recline (and relax) on couches. (There), they shall neither be troubled by the heat of the sun, nor by the excessive biting cold
The shades of paradise would (shield them and) cover them all around. The cluster of fruit would droop low, within easy reach
Silver goblets, and clear crystal glasses would be circulated among them
Goblets made of crystal clear silver would be filled to measure, as per their wishes
In paradise, they would be given a cup (of wine) to drink; it would have the flavor of ginger
The spring (of wine) in paradise is called ´The salsabeel´
Youthful lads, staying young forever, would (go around and) wait on them. (So handsome), you would take them for scattered pearls when you see them
In the paradise, you will find (the idyllic bliss and) blessings everywhere; splendors of the great empire
They will wear green garments made of fine silk and rich brocade. They shall don silver (arm bands and) bracelets as adornments. Their Lord will give them a pure (refreshing) drink
(They shall hear), "This is really your reward. Your efforts (in life) have found acceptance (and borne fruit in the afterlife)."
Indeed, it is We Who revealed to you the Qur´an in stages, a little at a time
Therefore, submit to the commands of your Lord, patiently. And do not obey the sinners, the unbelievers among them
And remember your Lord´s name, each morning and evening
Prostrate before Him during part of the night. Chant His praises during the long hours of the night
In fact, the unbelievers love the present (transient) life, the one easy to earn (and attain), while they put behind (and out of their mind), the remembrance of a grievous onerous day
It is We Who created them. We gave them their strength and vigor. Whenever We wish, We can replace them all together. We can easily bring in their place others like them
Indeed, this (Qur´an) is a reminder! (Now), whoever wishes may follow the path (that leads) to his Lord
But you cannot will anything, unless Allah wills it so. Indeed, Allah is all-Knowing, all-Wise
He ushers into His mercy whomever He wills. For the evil doers, He has prepared a painful punishment
