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, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ What are they asking each other about? (1) Of the mighty Announcement, (2) on which they [so utterly] disagree. (3) Nay, but in time they will come to understand [it]! (4) Verily, verily they shall soon (come to) know! (5) Have We not spread the earth like a bed, (6) And the mountains as pegs? (7) And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad, etc.). (8) and We have made your sleep [a symbol of] death (9) and made the night a covering, (10) And have appointed the day for livelihood. (11) And We have builded over you seven strong heavens. (12) and have placed [therein the sun,] a lamp full of blazing splendour. (13) From the rain clouds We send waters pouring down in abundance, (14) Thereby to produce grain and plant, (15) And gardens of entwined growth. (16) Lo! the Day of Decision is a fixed time, (17) the Day that the Horn is blown, and you shall come in crowds (18) And the heaven shall be opened, and it will become as gates, (19) And the hills are set in motion and become as a mirage. (20) Verily the Hell is an ambuscade: (21) The destination of the rebellious. (22) In which they will remain for ages [unending]. (23) They shall not taste therein cool nor drink (24) save boiling water and a stinking fluid -- (25) a fitting requital, (26) Behold, they were not expecting to be called to account, (27) But they (impudently) treated Our Signs as false. (28) And everything We have recorded in a book. (29) Taste therefore. We shall not increase you in aught but torment. (30)
