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
Has there not been over man a period of time, when he was nothing to be mentioned? (1) Verily We created man from a sperm yoked (to the ovum) to bring out his real substance, then gave him hearing and sight. (2) We showed him the right path whether he would be grateful or ungrateful. (3) [Now,] behold, for those who deny the truth We have readied chains and shackles, and a blazing flame (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) They fulfill their vow and dread a Day the evil whereof shall be widespreading. (7) And feed the needy for the love of Him, and the orphans and the captives, (8) (Saying): "We feed you for the sake of God, desiring neither recompense nor thanks. (9) We fear the dismal day calamitous from our Lord." (10) So Allah will protect them from the evil of that Day and give them radiance and happiness (11) and recompense them for their patience with a Garden, and robes of silk. (12) therein they shall recline upon couches, therein they shall see neither sun nor bitter cold; (13) The shade thereof is close upon them and the clustered fruits thereof bow down. (14) And there shall be made to go round about them vessels of silver and goblets which are of glass, (15) Crystal-clear, made of silver: they will determine the measure thereof (according to their wishes). (16) And they shall be made to drink therein a cup the admixture of which shall be ginger, (17) From a spring by the name of Ever-flowing-Salsabil. (18) ۞ They will be attended by youths who will not age -- when you see them you will think them to be like sprinkled pearls -- (19) when thou seest them then thou seest bliss and a great kingdom. (20) Upon the inhabitants will be green garments of fine silk and brocade. And they will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a purifying drink. (21) Surely this is a reward for you, and your striving shall be recompensed. (22)
