Has there come on man a period of time when he was not a thing even to be mentioned?
We create man from a semen-drop mixture, so as to test him. Thus, We bestowed upon him hearing and seeing.
Indeed, We showed him the way, whether he will be grateful or not.
Indeed, We have prepared for those who lack Faith in Allâh chains, shackles and blazing fire.
Indeed, the ‘Pure in Heart’ will drink of a cup whereof the mixture is of ‘Kafur’.
A fountain where the devotees of Allâh will drink. They will cause it to gush forth abundantly.
They fulfill their vows and fear a day whose evil is widely spread
And give food, in spite of their needs for it, to a needy person or to an orphan or to a captive,
(Saying): “We do feed you only for the countenance of Allâh, not desiring any reward or thanks from your behalf.
Indeed, we fear from our Lord a day which is harsh and distressful."
Thus, Allâh will protect them from the evil of that day, giving them vivacity and joy,
Rewarding them for what they patiently endured, a garden and silk.
They will recline therein on couches; and they will feel neither excessive heat nor freezing cold.
Its shades will be closely spread upon them while its fruits will be near and easy to be reached.
There will be made to pass around them, silver dishes and cups of crystal,
Transparent cups made of silver which they will determine the exact measure of drink.
They will be given to drink therein a cup whose mixture is ginger
From a fountain whose name is called ‘Salsabīl’.
They will be served by immortal youths. If you see them, you will think they are scattered pearls.
If you look there (in ‘Al- Jannah’), you will see bliss and great dominion.
Upon them will be green garments of fine silk and brocade, while they will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will satisfy their thirst with a pure drink.
(It will be said unto them): "Indeed, this is a reward for you, and your struggle has been appreciated."
Indeed, it is We who have sent down to you, (O' ‘Muhammad’), the ‘Qurʾān’ progressively.
Thus, be patient towards the command of your Lord, do not pay attention to any of them, who is a wilful sinner or an impious;
And celebrate the (Glorious) Names of your Lord night and day
While during the night, prostrate yourself to Him and glorify Him all night long.
Absolutely, those who lack Faith in Allâh are in love with this worldly life, leaving behind them a heavy day.
It is We Who created them and strengthened their forms, but if We will, We can replace them completely with others like them.
Indeed, this is an admonition, therefore, whoever wills; let him take a path to his Lord.
Yet you will not (able to do what you intend to do), unless Allâh wills. Indeed, Allâh is ever All-knowing, All-wise.
He admits whom He wills into His (divine) Mercy. But the ones who are grossly unfair and morally wrong: He prepared for them a painful punishment.
