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.
