At-Tur - The Mount - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 52:1 By the Mount (of Revelation);

  3. 52:2 By a Decree inscribed

  4. 52:3 In a Scroll unfolded;

  5. 52:4 By the much-frequented Fane;

  6. 52:5 By the Canopy Raised High;

  7. 52:6 And by the Ocean filled with Swell;-

  8. 52:7 Verily, the Doom of thy Lord will indeed come to pass;-

  9. 52:8 There is none can avert it;-

  10. 52:9 On the Day when the firmament will be in dreadful commotion.

  11. 52:10 And the mountains will fly hither and thither.

  12. 52:11 Then woe that Day to those that treat (Truth) as Falsehood;-

  13. 52:12 That play (and paddle) in shallow trifles.

  14. 52:13 That Day shall they be thrust down to the Fire of Hell, irresistibly.

  15. 52:14 "This:, it will be said, "Is the Fire,- which ye were wont to deny!

  16. 52:15 "Is this then a fake, or is it ye that do not see?

  17. 52:16 "Burn ye therein: the same is it to you whether ye bear it with patience, or not: Ye but receive the recompense of your (own) deeds."

  18. 52:17 As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness,-

  19. 52:18 Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them, and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire.

  20. 52:19 (To them will be said:) "Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds."

  21. 52:20 They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.

  22. 52:21 And those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith,- to them shall We join their families: Nor shall We deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: (Yet) is each individual in pledge for his deeds.

  23. 52:22 And We shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat, anything they shall desire.

  24. 52:23 They shall there exchange, one with another, a (loving) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill.

  25. 52:24 Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them. Youths (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.

  26. 52:25 They will advance to each other, engaging in mutual enquiry.

  27. 52:26 They will say: "Aforetime, we were not without fear for the sake of our people.

  28. 52:27 "But Allah has been good to us, and has delivered us from the Penalty of the Scorching Wind.

  29. 52:28 "Truly, we did call unto Him from of old: truly it is He, the Beneficent, the Merciful!"

  30. 52:29 Therefore proclaim thou the praises (of thy Lord): for by the Grace of thy Lord, thou art no (vulgar) soothsayer, nor art thou one possessed.

  31. 52:30 Or do they say:- "A Poet! we await for him some calamity (hatched) by Time!"

  32. 52:31 Say thou: "Await ye!- I too will wait along with you!"

  33. 52:32 Is it that their faculties of understanding urge them to this, or are they but a people transgressing beyond bounds?

  34. 52:33 Or do they say, "He fabricated the (Message)"? Nay, they have no faith!

  35. 52:34 Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth!

  36. 52:35 Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators?

  37. 52:36 Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief.

  38. 52:37 Or are the Treasures of thy Lord with them, or are they the managers (of affairs)?

  39. 52:38 Or have they a ladder, by which they can (climb up to heaven and) listen (to its secrets)? Then let (such a) listener of theirs produce a manifest proof.

  40. 52:39 Or has He only daughters and ye have sons?

  41. 52:40 Or is it that thou dost ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-

  42. 52:41 Or that the Unseen in it their hands, and they write it down?

  43. 52:42 Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy Allah are themselves involved in a Plot!

  44. 52:43 Or have they a god other than Allah? Exalted is Allah far above the things they associate with Him!

  45. 52:44 Were they to see a piece of the sky falling (on them), they would (only) say: "Clouds gathered in heaps!"

  46. 52:45 So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs, wherein they shall (perforce) swoon (with terror),-

  47. 52:46 The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing and no help shall be given them.

  48. 52:47 And verily, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this: But most of them understand not.

  49. 52:48 Now await in patience the command of thy Lord: for verily thou art in Our eyes: and celebrate the praises of thy Lord the while thou standest forth,

  50. 52:49 And for part of the night also praise thou Him,- and at the retreat of the stars!
