77

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

77:1. By the (Winds) sent forth one after another (to man's profit);

77:2. Which then blow violently in tempestuous Gusts,

77:3. And scatter (things) far and wide;

77:4. Then separate them, one from another,

77:5. Then spread abroad a Message,

77:6. Whether of Justification or of Warning;-

77:7. Assuredly, what ye are promised must come to pass.

77:8. Then when the stars become dim;

77:9. When the heaven is cleft asunder;

77:10. When the mountains are scattered (to the winds) as dust;

77:11. And when the messengers are (all) appointed a time (to collect);-

77:12. For what Day are these (portents) deferred?

77:13. For the Day of Sorting out.

77:14. And what will explain to thee what is the Day of Sorting out?

77:15. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:16. Did We not destroy the men of old (for their evil)?

77:17. So shall We make later (generations) follow them.

77:18. Thus do We deal with men of sin.

77:19. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:20. Have We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable?-

77:21. The which We placed in a place of rest, firmly fixed,

77:22. For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)?

77:23. For We do determine (according to need); for We are the best to determine (things).

77:24. Ah woe, that Day! to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:25. Have We not made the earth (as a place) to draw together.

77:26. The living and the dead,

77:27. And made therein mountains standing firm, lofty (in stature); and provided for you water sweet (and wholesome)?

77:28. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:29. (It will be said:) "Depart ye to that which ye used to reject as false!

77:30. "Depart ye to a Shadow (of smoke ascending) in three columns,

77:31. "(Which yields) no shade of coolness, and is of no use against the fierce Blaze.

77:32. "Indeed it throws about sparks (huge) as Forts,

77:33. "As if there were (a string of) yellow camels (marching swiftly)."

77:34. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:35. That will be a Day when they shall not be able to speak.

77:36. Nor will it be open to them to put forth pleas.

77:37. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:38. That will be a Day of Sorting out! We shall gather you together and those before (you)!

77:39. Now, if ye have a trick (or plot), use it against Me!

77:40. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:41. As to the Righteous, they shall be amidst (cool) shades and springs (of water).

77:42. And (they shall have) fruits,- all they desire.

77:43. "Eat ye and drink ye to your heart's content: for that ye worked (Righteousness).

77:44. Thus do We certainly reward the Doers of Good.

77:45. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:46. (O ye unjust!) Eat ye and enjoy yourselves (but) a little while, for that ye are Sinners.

77:47. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:48. And when it is said to them, "Prostrate yourselves!" they do not so.

77:49. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

77:50. Then what Message, after that, will they believe in?
