The Human (Al-Insan)
31 verses, revealed in Medina after The All Compassionate (Al-Rahman) before Divorce (Al-Talaaq)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Surely there hath come upon man a space of time when he was not a thing worth mentioning. (1) Surely We have created man from a small life-germ uniting (itself): We mean to try him, so We have made him hearing, seeing. (2) We showed him the way, whether he be grateful or ungrateful. (3) Lo! We have prepared for disbelievers manacles and carcans and a raging fire. (4) [whereas,] behold, the truly virtuous shall drink from a cup flavoured with the calyx of sweet-smelling flowers: (5) which flows from a spring from which the servants of God will drink. (6) (Because) they perform the vow and fear a day whereof the evil is wide-spreading, (7) And feed with food the needy wretch, the orphan and the prisoner, for love of Him, (8) "We only feed you for the sake of God and we do not want any reward or thanks from you. (9) behold, we stand in awe of our Sustainer's judgment on a distressful, fateful Day!" (10) But Allah will deliver them from the evil of that Day, and will shed over them a Light of Beauty and (blissful) Joy. (11) And shall recompense them for that which they patiently bare with a Garden and silken garment. (12) Where they will recline on couches feeling neither heat of the sun nor intense cold. (13) And the shade thereof is close upon them, and the bunches of fruit thereof will hang low within their reach. (14) And there shall be made to go round about them vessels of silver and goblets which are of glass, (15) crystal of silver that they have measured -- very exactly. (16) They will drink cups containing (soft flowing) sparkling water (17) A fountain there, called Salsabil. (18) ۞ And immortal youths will wait upon them: when thou seest them, thou wouldst deem them to be scattered pearls; (19) And when you see there, you shall see blessings and a great kingdom. (20) Upon them there will be garments of green silk, rich brocade, and they will be adorned with bracelets of silver. Their Lord will give them a pure beverage to drink. (21) Surely this is a reward for you, and your striving shall be recompensed. (22)
