40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej) before The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Of what do they ask one another? (1) Is it about the awesome tiding (2) on which they [so utterly] disagree. (3) Nay, they will come to know! (4) And once again: Nay, but in time they will come to understand! (5) Have We not made the earth an expanse, (6) and raised the mountains like supporting poles? (7) And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad, etc.). (8) and We appointed your sleep for a rest; (9) And We have made the night a covering. (10) And We have made the day for seeking livelihood. (11) Have We not made seven strong heavens above you, (12) And have kept a very bright lamp in it. (13) And We have sent down from the rain-clouds water plenteous. (14) That We may produce therewith corn and vegetations, (15) and gardens dense with foliage. (16) Verily the Day of Sorting out is a thing appointed, (17) The day on which the trumpet shall be blown so you shall come forth in hosts, (18) and heaven is opened, having gates, (19) and the mountains will be set in motion and become a mirage. (20) Hell will lie in wait (for its prey). (21) A home for the rebellious. (22) They will tarry therein for ages. (23) They will not taste therein cool or any drink. (24) Save a boiling fluid and a fluid, dark, murky, intensely cold, (25) The reward to each is according to what he is. (26) For that they used not to fear any account (for their deeds), (27) And they belied Our revelations with strong belying. (28) However, We have recorded everything in a book. (29) Taste therefore. We shall not increase you in aught but torment. (30)
