The Mountain (Al-Toor)
49 verses, revealed in Mecca after Prostration (Al-Sajdah) before Kingship (Al-Mulk)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the Mount (Sinai), (1) And by oath of a passage, written (2) In parchment spread open (3) And by the Bait-ul-Ma'mur (the house over the heavens parable to the Ka'bah at Makkah, continuously visited by the angels); (4) The roof raised high, (5) Consider the surf-swollen sea! (6) surely, the punishment of your Lord is about to come, (7) there is none to avert it. (8) (It shall come to pass) on the Day when the heaven will convulse in a great convulsion, (9) And the mountains shall pass away passing away (altogether). (10) Woe, then, will be on that Day to the beliers (11) and amuse themselves with vain argumentation. (12) The day on which they shall be driven away to the fire of hell with violence. (13) and they will be told, "This is the fire which you called a lie. (14) Is this magic? or ye still see not clearly! (15) Roast in it! And bear you patiently, or bear not patiently, equal it is to you; you are only being recompensed for that you were working.' (16) Indeed, the righteous will be in gardens and pleasure, (17) Rejoicing in that which their Lord hath vouchsafed unto them; and their Lord will protect them from the torment of the Flame. (18) [And they will be told:] "Eat and drink with good cheer as an outcome of what you were wont to do, (19) Reclining on thrones, in rows; and We have wedded them to maidens with gorgeous eyes. (20) Those who believe, and whose descendants follow in belief, We will join their descendants to them. And We will not reduce them of anything of their deeds. Every one is pledged for what he has earned. (21) And We will provide them with fruit and meat from whatever they desire. (22) There they pass from hand to hand a cup wherein is neither vanity nor cause of sin. (23) ۞ And there go round, waiting on them menservants of their own, as they were hidden pearls. (24) And they [who are thus blest] will turn to one another, asking each other [about their past lives]. (25) Saying: Surely we feared before on account of our families: (26) Then Allah graced us with His favour and saved us from the chastisement of the scorching wind. (27) “Indeed we used to worship Him in our previous life; indeed He only is the Benign, the Most Merciful.” (28)
