78:1  Of what do they question one another
78:2  Of the mighty tidin
78:3  whereon they are at variance
78:4  No indeed; they shall soon know
78:5  Again, no indeed; they shall soon know
78:6  Have We not made the earth as a cradl
78:7  and the mountains as pegs
78:8  And We created you in pairs
78:9  and We appointed your sleep for a rest
78:10  and We appointed night for a garment
78:11  and We appointed day for a livelihood
78:12  And We have built above you seven strong ones
78:13  and We appointed a blazing lam
78:14  and have sent down out of the rainclouds water cascadin
78:15  that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants
78:16  and gardens luxuriant
78:17  Surely the Day of Decision is an appointed time
78:18  the day the Trumpet is blown, and you shall come in troops
78:19  and heaven is opened, and become gates
78:20  and the mountains are set in motion, and become a vapour
78:21  Behold, Gehenna has become an ambush
78:22  for the insolent a resort
78:23  therein to tarry for ages
78:24  tasting therein neither coolness nor any drin
78:25  save boiling water and pu
78:26  for a suitable recompense
78:27  They indeed hoped not for a reckoning
78:28  and they cried loud lies to Our signs
78:29  and everything We have numbered in a Book
78:30  'Taste! We shall increase you not save in chastisement.
78:31  Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security
78:32  gardens and vineyard
78:33  and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age
78:34  and a cup overflowing
78:35  Therein they shall hear no idle talk, no cry of lies
78:36  for a recompense from thy Lord, a gift, a reckoning
78:37  Lord of the heavens and earth, and all that between them is, the All-merciful of whom they have no power to speak
78:38  Upon the day when the Spirit and the angels stand in ranks they shall speak not, save him to whom the All-merciful has given leave, and who speaks aright
78:39  That is the true day; so whosoever wills takes unto his Lord a resort
78:40  Lo, We have warned you of a nigh chastisement, upon the day when a man shall behold what his hands have forwarded, and the unbeliever shall say, 'O would that I were dust!
