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
Was there a period of time when man was not even worthy of a mention? (1) We created man from a drop of mingled fluid so that We might try him; We gave him hearing and sight; (2) Verily We! We shewed him the way; then he becometh either thankful or ingrate. (3) We have prepared chains, shackles, and flaming fire (for the disbelievers). (4) [whereas,] behold, the truly virtuous shall drink from a cup flavoured with the calyx of sweet-smelling flowers: (5) A fountain from which the servants of Allah shall drink; they make it to flow a (goodly) flowing forth. (6) These will be the ones who fulfil their vows and dread the Day whose woe shall be spread far and wide; (7) And they give food, inspite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to Miskin (poor), 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) behold, we stand in awe of our Sustainer's judgment on a distressful, fateful Day!" (10) And so, God will preserve them from the woes of that Day, and will bestow on them brightness and joy, (11) For their patience, He will reward them with Paradise and silk. (12) There they will recline on elevated couches and will be subjected neither to the burning heat of the sun nor to bitter cold. (13) And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them, and the bunches (of fruit), there, will hang low in humility. (14) And they will be waited upon with vessels of silver and goblets that will [seem to] be crystal (15) Also there will be crystal clear goblets of silver containing the exact measure of drink which they desire. (16) And they will be given to drink there a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabil (ginger, etc.), (17) From a fountain therein, named Salsabil. (18) ۞ Immortal youths shall surround them, waiting upon them; when you see them, you would think they are scattered pearls. (19) and when thou seest [anything that is] there thou wilt see [only] bliss and a realm transcendent (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)
