The Mountain (Al-Toor)
49 verses, revealed in Mecca after Prostration (Al-Sajdah) before Kingship (Al-Mulk)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
CONSIDER Mount Sinai! (1) And [by] a Book inscribed (2) On an open record. (3) By the much-frequented Fane; (4) And the elevated canopy (5) And the swollen sea, (6) the punishment of your Lord shall certainly come to pass, (7) there is no one who could avert it, (8) On the Day whereon the heaven will shake with an awful shaking. (9) and the mountains quickly move. (10) Will be the day of woe for those (11) who divert themselves with idle chatter: (12) the day when they shall be pitched into the fire of Gehenna: (13) 'This is the fire that you cried lies to! (14) Is this magic? or ye still see not clearly! (15) "Burn ye therein: the same is it to you whether ye bear it with patience, or not: Ye but receive the recompense of your (own) deeds." (16) Lo! those who kept their duty dwell in gardens and delight, (17) enjoying what Allah will have endowed them with; and their Lord will have saved them from the torment of the Blazing Fire. (18) [They will be told], "Eat and drink in satisfaction for what you used to do." (19) reclining on couches [of happiness] ranged in rows!" And [in that paradise] We shall mate them with companions pure, most beautiful of eye. (20) And those who believed, and whose progeny also followed them in their faith, will be united with their offspring. We will not deprive them of their labour in the least. Every man is bound to what he does. (21) We shall provide them in abundance with such fruit and meat as they desire. (22) They shall there exchange, one with another, a (loving) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill. (23) ۞ There will circulate among them [servant] boys [especially] for them, as if they were pearls well-protected. (24) And some of them draw near to others, questioning. (25) Saying: Surely we feared before on account of our families: (26) But God has granted us favors and saved us from the scorching heat of the torment. (27) Verily, we did invoke Him [alone] ere this: [and now He has shown us] that He alone is truly benign, a true dispenser of grace!" (28)
