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 God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ What are they questioning each other about? (1) About the great tidings! (2) on which they [so utterly] disagree. (3) By no means! anon they shall know. (4) Surely, they will soon find out the truth! (5) Have We not made the earth as a bed, (6) And the mountains as pegs? (7) We created you in pairs, (8) and We appointed your sleep for a rest; (9) The night a covering, (10) And the day for seeking livelihood. (11) We raised over you several secure (skies), (12) and We have set therein a glowing lamp. (13) And have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water, (14) Thereby to produce grain and plant, (15) And gardens of entwined growth. (16) Verily the Day of Decision is a time appointed. (17) The day the trumpet blast is sounded you will come in hordes; (18) And the heaven shall be opened so that it shall be all openings, (19) And the mountains shall be moved off so that they shall remain a mere semblance. (20) [On that Day,] verily, hell will lie in wait [for those who deny the truth] (21) a resort for the rebellious; (22) Living therein for ages. (23) Nothing cool shall they taste therein, nor any drink, (24) only burning despair and ice-cold darkness: (25) for a suitable recompense. (26) Verily they were wont not to look for a reckoning. (27) But they belied Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, and that which Our Prophet (Peace be upon him) brought) completely. (28) and everything We have numbered in a Book. (29) [So We shall say], "Taste, then, [the fruit of your evil doings,] for now We shall bestow on you nothing but more and more suffering!" (30)
