The Human (Al-Insan)
31 verses, revealed in Medina after The All Compassionate (Al-Rahman) before Divorce (Al-Talaaq)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
WAS THERE NOT a time in the life of man when he was not even a mentionable thing? (1) Verily, it is We who have created man out of a drop of sperm intermingled, so that We might try him [in his later life]: and therefore We made him a being endowed with hearing and sight. (2) Verily, We have shown him the way: [and it rests with him to prove himself] either grateful or ungrateful. (3) Indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers chains and shackles and a blaze. (4) The virtuous ones will drink from a cup containing camphor (5) a fountain whereat drink the servants of God, making it to gush forth plenteously. (6) [The truly virtuous are] they [who] fulfil their vows, and stand in awe of a Day the woe of which is bound to spread far and wide, (7) they give food, despite their love for it, to the poor and orphans and captives, (8) 'We feed you only for the Face of God; we desire no recompense from you, no thankfulness; (9) we fear from our Lord a Day that shall be long and distressful.” (10) So God will protect them from the evil of that day, and grant them happiness and joy, (11) And hath awarded them for all that they endured, a Garden and silk attire; (12) They will recline therein on couches and they will find neither excessive heat nor cold. (13) near them shall be its shades, and its clusters hung meekly down, (14) And they will be waited upon with vessels of silver and goblets that will [seem to] be crystal (15) crystal of silver that they have measured -- very exactly. (16) Therein they shall be served a cup flavoured with ginger, (17) drawn from a spring (in Paradise) called Salsabil. (18) ۞ And round about them shall go youths never altering in age; when you see them you will think them to be scattered pearls. (19) If you were to see it, you would find it to be a great kingdom with great bounty. (20) On their bodies will be garments of the finest green silk and brocade, and they will be adorned with bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give them a purest draught to drink. (21) "Verily this is a Reward for you, and your Endeavour is accepted and recognised." (22)
