;

1 . By the emissary winds, (sent) one after another

2 . By the raging hurricanes,

3 . By those which cause earth´s vegetation to revive;

4 . By those who winnow with a winnowing,

5 . By those who bring down the Reminder,

6 . To excuse or to warn,

7 . Surely that which ye are promised will befall.

8 . So when the stars are put out,

9 . And when the sky is riven asunder,

10 . And when the mountains are blown away,

11 . And when the messengers are brought unto their time appointed -

12 . For what day is the time appointed?

13 . For the Day of Decision.

14 . And what will convey unto thee what the Day of Decision is! -

15 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

16 . Destroyed We not the former folk,

17 . Then caused the latter folk to follow after?

18 . Thus deal We ever with the guilty.

19 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

20 . Did We not create you from a base fluid

21 . Which We laid up in a safe abode

22 . For a known term?

23 . Thus We arranged. How excellent is Our arranging!

24 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

25 . Have We not made the earth a receptacle

26 . Both for the living and the dead,

27 . And placed therein high mountains and given you to drink sweet water therein?

28 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

29 . (It will be said unto them:) Depart unto that (doom) which ye used to deny;

30 . Depart unto the shadow falling threefold,

31 . (Which yet is) no relief nor shelter from the flame.

32 . Lo! it throweth up sparks like the castles,

33 . (Or) as it might be camels of bright yellow hue.

34 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

35 . This is a day wherein they speak not,

36 . Nor are they suffered to put forth excuses.

37 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

38 . This is the Day of Decision, We have brought you and the men of old together.

39 . If now ye have any wit, outwit Me.

40 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

41 . Lo! those who kept their duty are amid shade and fountains,

42 . And fruits such as they desire.

43 . (Unto them it is said:) Eat, drink and welcome, O ye blessed, in return for what ye did.

44 . Thus do We reward the good.

45 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

46 . Eat and take your ease (on earth) a little. Lo! ye are guilty.

47 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

48 . When it is said unto them: Bow down, they bow not down!

49 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

50 . In what statement, after this, will they believe?
