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 Dispenser of Grace
۞ Of what do they question one another? (1) Is it about the awesome tiding (2) Regarding which they hold different views. (3) But they will soon come to know. (4) Again surely yes, they will soon come to know! (5) Have We not made the earth an expanse. (6) The mountains tent-pins? (7) And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad, etc.). (8) And made your sleep [a means for] rest (9) And We made the night to be a covering, (10) and made the day for earning a livelihood. (11) And We have built above you seven strong (heavens), (12) and placed therein a hot, shining lamp, (13) And We sent down rain from water-laden clouds pouring in torrents (14) So that We bring forth thereby corn and vegetation. (15) and gardens dense with foliage. (16) Lo! the Day of Decision is a fixed time, (17) the day the Trumpet is blown, and you shall come in troops, (18) And the heaven shall be opened so that it shall be all openings, (19) and when the mountains are made to vanish as if they had been a mirage. (20) Indeed, Hell has been lying in wait (21) a return for the insolent, (22) Living therein for ages. (23) They will not feel cold nor taste any drink (24) Save boiling water and a paralysing cold: (25) Recompense fitted! (26) For lo! they looked not for a reckoning; (27) They called Our revelations false with strong denial. (28) However, We have recorded everything in a book. (29) [And 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)
