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
There surely came over man a period of time when he was a thing not 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) Lo! We have shown him the way, whether he be grateful or disbelieving. (3) We have prepared chains, shackles, and flaming fire (for the disbelievers). (4) Lo! the righteous shall drink of a cup whereof the mixture is of Kafur, (5) a source [of bliss] whereof God's servants shall drink, seeing it flow in a flow abundant. (6) They fulfill their vow and dread a Day the evil whereof shall be widespreading. (7) those who, for the love of Him, feed the needy, and the orphan, and the captive, (8) [saying, in their hearts,] "We feed you for the sake of God alone: we desire no recompense from you, nor thanks: (9) "We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord." (10) So Allah shall guard them against the woe of that Day, and will procure them freshness and joy, (11) And gave them Paradise and silk clothes, as a reward for their patience. (12) Where they will recline on couches feeling neither heat of the sun nor intense cold. (13) The shadows will bend over them, and low will hang the clusters of grapes. (14) Passed round will be silver flagons and goblets made of glass, (15) goblets bright as crystal but made of silver, filled to exact measure. (16) And therein they shall be given to drink a cup whose mixture is ginger, (17) Which is a spring in Paradise called Salsabeel. (18) ۞ Immortal youths shall surround them, waiting upon them; when you see them, you would think they are scattered pearls. (19) when thou seest them then thou seest bliss and a great kingdom. (20) Upon them shall be garments of fine green silk and of brocades. And adorned they shall be with bracelets of silver: and their Lord shall give them drink a beverage pure. (21) (And it will be said unto them): Lo! this is a reward for you. Your endeavour (upon earth) hath found acceptance. (22)
