The News (Al-Naba')
40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej) before The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ OF WHAT ARE they asking one another? 1 (It is) of the awful tidings, 2 that they are in utter disagreement? 3 Indeed, they shall know! 4 Yes, indeed, before long they will learn all about it. 5 Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse, 6 And the mountains as pegs? 7 and created you in pairs (as men and women), 8 And made your sleep [a means for] rest 9 and We made the night a mantle, 10 And have appointed the day for livelihood. 11 And built seven strong roofs above you. 12 (the sun) as a shining torch 13 From the rain clouds We send waters pouring down in abundance, 14 so that We may thereby bring forth grain and vegetation, 15 And gardens of entwined growth. 16 Surely the day of decision is (a day) appointed: 17 the Day that the Horn is blown, and you shall come in crowds 18 and when the sky shall be opened up and will become all doors; 19 The mountains put in motion turning into a mirage. 20 Truly Hell is as a place of ambush, 21 for the insolent a resort, 22 In it shall they remain for a long time. 23 They will not feel cold nor taste any drink 24 except boiling water and pus, 25 a fitting requital, 26 For lo! they looked not for a reckoning; 27 and they absolutely belied Our verses, 28 And everything have We recorded in a Book. 29 [And so We shall say:] "Taste, then, [the fruit of your evil doings,] for now We shall bestow on you nothing but more and more suffering!" 30
