;

1 . There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall.

2 . The infidels, of which there is no averter.

3 . From Allah, Owner of the ascending steps.

4 . Whereby the angels ascend Unto Him and also the spirit, On a Day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years.

5 . Wherefore be thou patient with a becoming patience.

6 . Verily they behold it afar off.

7 . And We behold it nigh.

8 . It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like Unto dregs of oil.

9 . And then the mountains shall become like Unto wool dyed.

10 . And not a friend shall ask a friend,

11 . Though they shall be made to see one another. Fain would the guilty ransom himself from the torment of that Day by his children.

12 . And his spouse and his brother.

13 . And his kin that sheltered him.

14 . And all who are on the earth; so that this might deliver him.

15 . By no means! Verily it is a Flame.

16 . Flaying off the scalp-skin.

17 . It shall calll him who turneth back and backslideth.

18 . And masseth and then hoardeth.

19 . Verily man is formed impatient.

20 . When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing.

21 . And when good toucheth him he is begrudging.

22 . Not so are the prayerful.

23 . Who are at their prayer constant.

24 . And those in whose riches is a known right.

25 . For the beggar and the destitute.

26 . And those who testify to the Day of Requital.

27 . And those who are fearful of their Lord´s torment -

28 . Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from.

29 . And those who of their private parts are guards.

30 . Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy -

31 . And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers

32 . And those who of their trusts and their covenant are keepers.

33 . And those who stand firm in their testimonies.

34 . And those who of their prayer are observant.

35 . Those shall dwell in Gardens, honoured.

36 . What aileth those who disbelieve, toward thee hastening.

37 . On the right and on the left, in companies?

38 . Coveteth every man of them, that he shall enter the Garden of Delight?

39 . By no means! veriiy We! We have created them from that which they know.

40 . I swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests, that, vierly We are Able.

41 . To replace them by others better than they; and We are not to be outrun.

42 . Wherefore let thou them alone plunging in vanity and sporting until they meet their Day which they are promised.

43 . The Day whereon they shall come forth from the sepulchres hastily, as though they were to an altar hurrying.

44 . Downcast shall be their looks; abjectness shall overspread them. Such is the Day which they are promised.
