Book 78


The Great Event

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

[78.1]

Of what do they ask one another?

[78.2]

About the great event,

[78.3]

About which they differ?

[78.4]

Nay! they shall soon come to know

[78.5]

Nay!
Nay!
they shall soon know.

[78.6]

Have We not made the earth an even expanse?

[78.7]

And the mountains as projections (thereon)?

[78.8]

And We created you in pairs,

[78.9]

And We made your sleep to be rest (to you),

[78.10]

And We made the night to be a covering,

[78.11]

And We made the day for seeking livelihood.

[78.12]

And We made above you seven strong ones,

[78.13]

And We made a shining lamp,

[78.14]

And We send down from the clouds water pouring forth abundantly,

[78.15]

That We may bring forth thereby corn and herbs,

[78.16]

And gardens dense and luxuriant.

[78.17]

Surely the day of decision is (a day) appointed:

[78.18]

The day on which the trumpet shall be blown so you.
shall come forth in hosts,

[78.19]

And the heaven shall be opened so that it shall be all openings,

[78.20]

And the mountains shall be moved off so that they shall remain a mere semblance.

[78.21]

Surely hell lies in wait,

[78.22]

A place of resort for the inordinate,

[78.23]

Living therein for ages.

[78.24]
They shall not taste therein cool nor drink

[78.25]

But boiling and intensely cold water,

[78.26]

Requital corresponding.

[78.27]

Surely they feared not the account,

[78.28]

And called Our communications a lie,
giving the lie (to the truth).

[78.29]

And We have recorded everything in a book,

[78.30]

So taste!
for We will not add to you aught but chastisement.

[78.31]

Surely for those who guard (against evil) is achievement,

[78.32]

Gardens and vineyards,

[78.33]

And those showing freshness of youth,
equals in age,

[78.34]

And a pure cup.

[78.35]

They shall not hear therein any vain words nor lying.

[78.36]

A reward from your Lord,
a gift according to a reckoning:

[78.37]

The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them,
the Beneficent God,
they shall not be able to address Him.

[78.38]

The day on which the spirit and the angels shall stand in ranks;
they shall not speak except he whom the Beneficent God permits and who speaks the right thing.

[78.39]

That is the sure day,
so whoever desires may take refuge with his Lord.

[78.40]

Surely We have warned you of a chastisement near at hand:
the day when man shall see what his two hands have sent before,
and the unbeliever shall say:
O!
would that I were dust!
