85:1  By the heaven with its constellations,
85:2  by the promised day,
85:3  by the witness and that which is witnessed,
85:4  slain be the people of the pit
85:5  of the fire abounding in fuel,
85:6  when they sat around it,
85:7  watching what they did to the believers.
85:8  They took vengeance on them for no reason other than that they believed in God, the Almighty, to whom all praise is due,
85:9  to whom the dominion of the heavens and the earth belongs. But God is witness of all things
85:10  Those who persecute the believers, men and women, and do not repent shall suffer the punishment of hell, and suffer the punishment of burning.
85:11  But those who believe and do righteous deeds shall have gardens through which running waters flow; that is the supreme triumph.
85:12  Stern indeed is your Lord's vengeance.
85:13  It is He who brings into being, and then restores to life.
85:14  He is All-Forgiving, Compassionate,
85:15  Lord of the Throne, Glorious,
85:16  He does whatever He wills.
85:17  Have you heard the story of the hosts,
85:18  of Pharaoh and ThamÅ«d?
85:19  Yet the unbelievers persist in their denial [of the truth].
85:20  But God surrounds them all.
85:21  This is indeed a glorious Qur'ān,
85:22  inscribed on an imperishable tablet.
