77:1  By those sent forth in succession,
77:2  by the violently gusting blasts,
77:3  by the scatterers scattering,
77:4  by the winnowers winnowing,
77:5  by those hurling a reminder,
77:6  excusing or warning,
77:7  what you are promised will certainly happen.
77:8  When the stars are extinguished,
77:9  when heaven is split open,
77:10  when the mountains are pulverised,
77:11  when the Messengers´ time is appointed —
77:12  until what day is that deferred?
77:13  Until the Day of Decision.
77:14  And what will teach you what the Day of Decision is?
77:15  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:16  Did We not destroy the earlier peoples,
77:17  then succeed them with later ones?
77:18  That is how We deal with evildoers.
77:19  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:20  Did We not create you from a base fluid,
77:21  then place it in a secure repository
77:22  for a recognised term?
77:23  It is We who determine. What an excellent Determiner!
77:24  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:25  Did We not make the earth a receptacle
77:26  for the living and the dead?
77:27  Did We not place firmly embedded mountains in it, soaring high into the air, and give you sweet fresh water to drink?
77:28  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:29  Proceed to that which you denied!
77:30  Proceed to a shadow which forks into three
77:31  but gives no shade or protection from the flames,
77:32  shooting up great sparks the size of castles,
77:33  like a herd of yellow camels.
77:34  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:35  This is the Day they will not say a single word,
77:36  nor will they be allowed to offer any excuses.
77:37  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:38  ´This is the Day of Decision. We have gathered you and the earlier peoples.
77:39  So if you have a ploy, use it against Me now!´
77:40  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:41  The people with taqwa will be amid shade and fountains
77:42  and have any fruits that they desire:
77:43  ´Eat and drink with relish for what you did.
77:44  This is the way We reward good-doers.´
77:45  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:46  ´Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little while. You are evildoers.´
77:47  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:48  When they are told to bow, they do not bow.
77:49  On that Day, woe to the deniers!
77:50  In what discourse after this, then, will they have iman?
