78:1  ABOUT WHAT do they [most often] ask one another
78:2  About the awesome tiding [of resurrection]
78:3  on which they [so utterly] disagree
78:4  Nay, but in time they will come to understand [it]
78:5  And once again: Nay, but in time they will come to understand
78:6  HAVE WE NOT made the earth a resting-place [for you]
78:7  and the mountains [its] pegs
78:8  And We have created you in pairs
78:9  and We have made your sleep [a symbol of] deat
78:10  and made the night [its] cloa
78:11  and made the day [a symbol of] life
78:12  And We have built above you seven firmaments
78:13  and have placed [therein the sun,] a lamp full of blazing splendour
78:14  And from the wind-driven clouds We send down waters pouring in abundance
78:15  so that We might bring forth thereby grain, and herbs
78:16  and gardens dense with follage
78:17  VERILY, the Day of Distinction [between the true and the false] has indeed its appointed time
78:18  the Day when the trumpet [of resurrection] is sounded and you all come forward in multitudes
78:19  and when the skies are opened and become [as wide-flung] gates
78:20  and when the mountains are made to vanish as if they had been a mirage
78:21  [On that Day,] verily, hell will lie in wait [for those who deny the truth] –
78:22  a goal for all who are wont to transgress the bounds of what is right
78:23  In it shall they remain for a long time
78:24  Neither coolness shall they taste therein nor any [thirst-quenching] drink –
78:25  only burning despair and ice-cold darkness
78:26  a meet requital [for their sins]
78:27  Behold, they were not expecting to be called to account
78:28  having given the lie to Our messages one and all
78:29  but We have placed on record every single thing [of what they did]
78:30  [And so We shall say:] "Taste, then, [the fruit of your evil doings,] for now We shall bestow on you nothing but more and more suffering!"
78:31  [But,] verily for the God-conscious there is supreme fulfilment in store
78:32  luxuriant gardens and vinyards
78:33  and splendid companions well matched
78:34  and a cup [of happiness] overflowing
78:35  No empty talk will they hear in that [paradise], nor any lie
78:36  [All this will be] a reward from thy Sustainer, a gift in accordance with [His Own] reckoning –
78:37  [a reward from] the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Most Gracious! [And] none shall have it in their power to raise their voices unto Hi
78:38  on the Day when all [human] souls and all the angels will stand up in ranks: none will speak but he to whom the Most Gracious will have given leave; and [everyone] will say [only] what is right
78:39  That will be the Day of Ultimate Truth: whoever wills, then, let him take the path that leads towards his Sustainer
78:40  Verily, We have warned you of suffering near at hand - [suffering] on the Day when man shall [clearly] see what his hands have sent ahead, and when he who has denied the truth shall say, "Oh, would that I were mere dust...!"
