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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ What are they asking (one another)? (1) About the awesome tidings [of resurrection] (2) concerning which they are in disagreement! (3) No indeed; soon will they come to know; (4) Verily, verily they shall soon (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; (8) and gave you repose in sleep, (9) And We made the night to be a covering, (10) And have appointed the day for livelihood. (11) And We have built above you seven strong ones, (12) And placed (therein) a Light of Splendour? (13) and sent down abundant water from the clouds (14) so that We might bring forth thereby grain, and herbs, (15) And gardens of luxurious growth? (16) VERILY, the Day of Distinction [between the true and the false] has indeed its appointed time: (17) the Day when the trumpet [of resurrection] is sounded and you all come forward in multitudes; (18) and when the skies are opened and become [as wide-flung] gates; (19) And the mountains are removed and will be [but] a mirage. (20) Truly, Hell is a place of ambush, (21) a goal for all who are wont to transgress the bounds of what is right! (22) They will abide therein for ages. (23) they shall taste in it no coolness, nor any pleasant drink (24) only burning despair and ice-cold darkness: (25) Reward proportioned (to their evil deeds). (26) Verily they were wont not to look 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) 'Taste! We shall not increase you except in punishment' (30)
