Hasn’t there been a phase in human history when humans were nothing worthy of mention?
We created human – from a drop of mixed fluid – to test. We gave them hearing and sight;
We showed the straight path, to see whether they would be thankful, or an unthankful denier.
For the disbelievers We’ve prepared chains, iron collars and a Blazing Fire.
The righteous will drink wine mixed with fragrant herbs,
a drink from a freely-flowing spring, made for the servants of Allah
They fulfil their vows, fear a Day whose horror is widespread,
they feed the needy, the orphan and the prisoner for the love of Allah,
saying, “We feed you for His sake; we don’t want some payment or thanks from you.
We fear a Day of calamity and destruction, coming from Our Lord.”
Allah will protect them from the distress of that Day, their faces will shine with joy
He rewarded them with breathtaking Gardens and silk clothing for the patience they showed;
they will rest on comfortable sofas and they won’t have extreme heat or bitter cold;
low-hanging branches will give them shade and clusters of fruits will be close at hand.
They will be served in crystal-like silver cups,
selecting the size of the cups to drink from.
They will have a drink mixed with ginger,
from the spring of Salsabil.
Eternal youth will serve them, and when you see them you will think they are pearls;
when you look around these delightful scenes, you will see an immense blissful kingdom.
Their fine clothes will be made of green silk and brocade; they will be adorned with silver bracelets, and their Lord will give them pure drinks.
It will be said: “This is the reward for you, and today your tireless efforts are gratefully acknowledged.
We gradually revealed the Majestic Quran to you,
so wait patiently for the judgement of Your Lord, and don’t obey any of them: the sinner or the ungrateful person.
Remember the Name of your Lord in the morning and evening,
and prostrate to Him, and glorify him throughout the night.
These people love the short-lived world, and dislike a Weighty Day ahead of them.
We created them, and strengthened their ligaments and joints; if We wanted, We could have totally replaced the likes of them.
This is a Reminder for anyone who wants to take the road to his Lord.
You can’t have it unless Allah wills to show you that way, and Allah is Knowing, Wise.
He cares for anyone He wants, and for the wrongdoers He has prepared a painful punishment
