;

1 . Hath there come Unto thee the story of the Enveloping Event?

2 . Faces on that Day shall be downcast,

3 . Travailing, worn.

4 . They shall roast into the scalding Fire,

5 . Given to drink of a spring fiercely boiling.

6 . No food shall be theirs save bitter thorn,

7 . Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger.

8 . Faces on that Day shall be de lighted,

9 . With their endeavour well pleased.

10 . They shall be in a Garden lofty:

11 . They shall hear therein no vain discourse;

12 . Therein shall be a spring running!

13 . Therein shall be couches elevated!

14 . And goblets ready placed!

15 . And cushions ranged!

16 . And carpets ready spread,

17 . Look they not at the camels, how they are created?

18 . And at the heaven, how it is raised?

19 . And at the mountains, how they are rooted?

20 . And at the earth, how it is outspread?

21 . Admonish thou then; thou art but an admonisher.

22 . Thou art not over them a warden.

23 . But whosoever will turn back and disbelieve -

24 . Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment.

25 . Verily Unto us is their reckoning.

26 . Then verily on us is their reckoning.
