Book 77


The Sent Forth

In the name of Allah,
tho Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[77.1]

I swear by the emissary winds,
sent one after another (for men's benefit),

[77.2]

By the raging hurricanes,

[77.3]

Which scatter clouds to their destined places,

[77.4]

Then separate them one from another,

[77.5]

Then I swear by the angels who bring down the revelation,

[77.6]

To clear or to warn.

[77.7]

Most surely what you are threatened with must come to pass.

[77.8]

So when the stars are made to lose their light,

[77.9]

And when the heaven is rent asunder,

[77.10]

And when the mountains are carried away as dust,

[77.11]
And when the apostles are gathered at their appointed time

[77.12]

To what day is the doom fixed?

[77.13]

To the day of decision.

[77.14]

And what will make you comprehend what the day of decision is?

[77.15]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.16]

Did We not destroy the former generations?

[77.17]

Then did We follow them up with later ones.

[77.18]

Even thus shall We deal with the guilty.

[77.19]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.20]

Did We not create you from contemptible water?

[77.21]

Then We placed it in a secure resting-place,

[77.22]

Till an appointed term,

[77.23]

So We proportion it-- how well are We at proportioning (things).

[77.24]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.25]

Have We not made the earth to draw together to itself,

[77.26]

The living and the dead,

[77.27]

And made therein lofty mountains,
and given you to drink of sweet water?

[77.28]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.29]

Walk on to that which you called a lie.

[77.30]

Walk on to the covering having three branches,

[77.31]

Neither having the coolness of the shade nor availing against the flame.

[77.32]

Surely it sends up sparks like palaces,

[77.33]

As if they were tawny camels.

[77.34]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.35]

This is the day on which they shall not speak,

[77.36]

And permission shall not be given to them so that they should offer excuses.

[77.37]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.38]

This is the day of decision:
We have gathered you and those of yore.

[77.39]

So if you have a plan,
plan against Me (now).

[77.40]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.41]

Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be amid shades and fountains,

[77.42]

And fruits such as they desire.

[77.43]

Eat and drink pleasantly because of what you did.

[77.44]

Surely thus do We reward the doers of good.

[77.45]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.46]

Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little;
surely you are guilty.

[77.47]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.48]

And where it is said to them:
Bow down,
they do not bow down.

[77.49]

Woe on that day to the rejecters.

[77.50]

In what announcement,
then,
after it,
will they believe?
