78:1  What are they questioning one another about?
78:2  About an important announcement
78:3  which they are disagreeing over.
78:4  However they soon will know!
78:5  Then indeed they shall know!
78:6  Have We not laid the earth out as a cradle
78:7  and [set] the mountains up as kingpins?
78:8  We have created you in pairs
78:9  and granted your sleeping for repose
78:10  and granted night as a garment,
78:11  and granted daytime for [you to earn your] living in.
78:12  We have built seven firmaments above you
78:13  and set a blazing lamp there.
78:14  We send down water in torrents wrung from rainclouds
78:15  so We may produce grain and plants with it,
78:16  as well as luxuriant gardens.
78:17  The day for Sorting has been appointed,
78:18  the day when the Trumpet shall be blown so you will come in droves,
78:19  and the sky will open up as if it had gates,
78:20  and the mountains will travel along as if they were a mirage.
78:21  Hell will lurk in ambush
78:22  to receive home the arrogant,
78:23  who will linger there for ages.
78:24  They will taste nothing cool in it nor any drink
78:25  except hot bathwater and slops,
78:26  [which are such] a fitting compensation
78:27  since they have never expected [to meet with] any reckoning
78:28  and have wittingly rejected Our signs.
78:29  Everything have We calculated in writing:
78:30  "So taste! Yet We shall only increase torment for you!"
78:31  The heedful will have their scene of triumph
78:32  with parks and vineyards,
78:33  as well as buxom maidens their own age
78:34  and a brimming The cup.
78:35  They will hear no idle talk nor any lying [gossip] there,
78:36  as a compensation from your Lord, a calculated gift.
78:37  Lord of Heaven and Earth as well as whatever is in between them, [He is] the Mercy-giving! They control no means of addressing Him;
78:38  on the day when the Spirit and the angels will stand there in ranks, only someone the Mercy-giving grants permission to shall speak, and he will speak straight to the point.
78:39  That day will seem too real! Anyone who wishes to, may adopt his recourse to [reach] the Lord.
78:40  We have warned you (all) how punishment lies close-at-hand, on a day when any man will see whatever his own hands have sent on ahead, and the disbeliever will say: "If I were only dust!"
