Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah Man(al-Insan)
76:1 There was — was there not? — a time when man [before he was created] was not yet a thing worth mentioning.
76:2 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.
76:3 We do indeed guide him, whether he be grateful or ungrateful.
76:4 For those who suppress the Truth, We have readied chains, and shackles, and a blazing Fire!
76:5 The righteous indeed shall drink from a cup containing a camphor-flavoured beverage.
76:6 A fountain from which Allah's subjects shall drink, making it flow as and when required.
76:7 They fulfill their vows, and fear a Day the evil of which would be widespread,
76:8 And they feed — for the sheer love of Him — the needy, the orphan, and the victim of circustances.
76:9 "We feed you only for Allah's sake: we desire no recompense from you, nor thanks!"
76:10 "We do indeed fear from our Lord a distressful, disastrous Day!"
76:11 And then, Allah will save them from the woes of that Day, and will bestow on them brightness and joy.
76:12 And He will reward them, for their patience, with Garden [Paradise] and silk [garments].
76:13 They will be reclining on couches there. They will feel neither sunburn therein nor intense cold.
76:14 And its shadows will come down low over them, and its clusters of fruit will dangle within reach.
76:15 And silver vessels and glass goblets will be passed around them.
76:16 From silver [vessel] to glass [goblet] — [the drink will be poured out] in required quantity.
76:17 And in it [Paradise] they will be given to drink of a cup containing a ginger-flavoured beverage.
76:18 [The source of the beverage is a fountain] therein named `Salsabeel'.
76:19 And waiting upon them will be immortal boys. When you see them you would think they were pearls dispersed.
76:20 And when you look, you would be looking at bliss and a realm transcendent!
76:21 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.
76:22 "This indeed is a reward for you, and your struggle [in worldly life] is appreciated!"
76:23 Indeed, We have sent down the Qur'aan on you, in stages !
76:24 Await, then, your Lord's decree, and obey not any sinner or ingrate among them!
76:25 And do chant your Lord's name morning and evening
76:26 And during the night. And then prostrate before Him. And extol His glory during the long night.
76:27 These [who suppress the Truth] do indeed love this transitory life, and leave a hard and difficult Day behind their backs.
76:28 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.
76:29 This [Qur'aan] indeed is a Counsel. He then, who so wills, may take a way to his Lord.
76:30 But you cannot will it unless Allah so wills! Allah is indeed Aware, Wise.
76:31 HE admits to His grace whom He wills. And He has readied painful punishment for the wicked people.
