The News (Al-Naba')
40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej) before The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ What are they questioning each other about? (1) About the awesome tidings [of resurrection] (2) whereupon they are at variance? (3) (What they think is certainly despicable!). They will soon come to know (the reality). (4) again, no indeed; soon will they come to know. (5) Have We not made the earth an expanse. (6) And the high hills bulwarks? (7) And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad, etc.). (8) And made your sleep for rest, (9) and the night as a cover, (10) and the day as time for you to make a living? (11) And We have builded over you seven strong heavens. (12) And placed (therein) a Light of Splendour? (13) And have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water. (14) that We may bring forth with it grain, plants (15) and gardens dense with foliage? (16) Lo! the Day of Decision is a fixed time, (17) The day the trumpet blast is sounded you will come in hordes; (18) and when the skies are opened and become [as wide-flung] gates; (19) and the mountains will be set in motion and become a mirage. (20) Verily the Hell is an ambuscade: (21) a resort for the rebellious; (22) In it shall they remain for a long time. (23) Finding neither sleep nor any thing to drink (24) Except boiling water, and dirty wound discharges. (25) A fitting recompense (for them). (26) Indeed, they did not hope for a Reckoning, (27) And called Our communications a lie, giving the lie (to the truth). (28) And everything have We recorded in a Book. (29) So taste (the fruit of what you sowed), for We shall add nothing but torment, (30)
