There was — was there not? — a time when man [before he was created] was not yet a thing worth mentioning
It is, indeed, We who have created man out of a mixed [fertilized] ovum, so that We try him out. And then We made him a being endowed with hearing and sight
We do indeed guide him, whether he be grateful or ungrateful
For those who suppress the Truth, We have readied chains, and shackles, and a blazing Fire
The righteous indeed shall drink from a cup containing a camphor-flavoured beverage
A fountain from which Allah's subjects shall drink, making it flow as and when required
They fulfill their vows, and fear a Day the evil of which would be widespread
And they feed — for the sheer love of Him — the needy, the orphan, and the victim of circustances
"We feed you only for Allah's sake: we desire no recompense from you, nor thanks!"
"We do indeed fear from our Lord a distressful, disastrous Day!"
And then, Allah will save them from the woes of that Day, and will bestow on them brightness and joy
And He will reward them, for their patience, with Garden [Paradise] and silk [garments]
They will be reclining on couches there. They will feel neither sunburn therein nor intense cold
And its shadows will come down low over them, and its clusters of fruit will dangle within reach
And silver vessels and glass goblets will be passed around them
From silver [vessel] to glass [goblet] — [the drink will be poured out] in required quantity
And in it [Paradise] they will be given to drink of a cup containing a ginger-flavoured beverage
[The source of the beverage is a fountain] therein named `Salsabeel'
And waiting upon them will be immortal boys. When you see them you would think they were pearls dispersed
And when you look, you would be looking at bliss and a realm transcendent
Upon them will be garments of green silk and brocade; and they will be adorned with silver bracelets. And their Lord will give them a pure drink
"This indeed is a reward for you, and your struggle [in worldly life] is appreciated!"
Indeed, We have sent down the Qur'aan on you, in stages
Await, then, your Lord's decree, and obey not any sinner or ingrate among them
And do chant your Lord's name morning and evenin
And during the night. And then prostrate before Him. And extol His glory during the long night
These [who suppress the Truth] do indeed love this transitory life, and leave a hard and difficult Day behind their backs
It is We who have created them and given them their strength. And when we so will, We can replace them with others of their kind
This [Qur'aan] indeed is a Counsel. He then, who so wills, may take a way to his Lord
But you cannot will it unless Allah so wills! Allah is indeed Aware, Wise
HE admits to His grace whom He wills. And He has readied painful punishment for the wicked people
