052 TheMountain

 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 1. I swear by the Mountain,

 2. And the Book written

 3. In an outstretched fine parchment,

 4. And the House (Kaaba) that is visited,

 S. And the elevated canopy

 6. And the swollen sea

 7. Most surely the punishment of your Lord will come to 

 8. There shall be none to avert it;

 9. On the day when the heaven shall move from side to side

 10. And the mountains shall pass away passing away 

 11. So woe on that day to those who reject (the truth),

 12. Those who sport entering into vain discourses.

 13. The day on which they shall be driven away to the fire 
 of hell with violence.

 14. This is the fire which you used to give the lie to.

 15. Is it magic then or do you not see?

 16. Enter into it, then bear (it) patiently, or do not bear 
 (it) patiently, it is the same to you; you shall be requited 
 only (for) what you did.

 17. Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in 
 gardens and bliss

 18. Rejoicing because of what their Lord gave them, and 
 their Lord saved them from the punishment of the burning 

 19. Eat and drink pleasantly for what you did,

 20. Reclining on thrones set in lines, and We will unite 
 them to large-eyed beautiful ones.

 21. And (as for) those who believe and their offspring 
 follow them in faith, We will unite with them their 
 offspring and We will not diminish to them aught of their 
 work; every man is responsible for what he shall have 

 22. And We will aid them with fruit and flesh such as they 

 23. They shall pass therein from one to another a cup 
 wherein there shall be nothing vain nor any sin.

 24. And round them shall go boys of theirs as if they were 
 hidden pearls.

 25. And some of them shall advance towards others 
 questioning each other.

 26. Saying: Surely we feared before on account of our 

 27. But Allah has been gracious to us and He has saved us 
 from the punishment of the hot wind:

 28. Surely we called upon Him before: Surely He is the 
 Benign, the Merciful.

 29. Therefore continue to remind, for by the grace of your 
 Lord, you are not a soothsayer, or a madman.

 30. Or do they say: A poet, we wait for him the evil 
 accidents of time.

 31. Say: Wait, for surely I too with you am of those who 

 32. Nay! do their understandings bid them this? Or are they 
 an inordinate people?

 33. Or do they say: He has forged it. Nay! they do not 

 34. Then let them bring an announcement like it if they are 

 35. Or were they created without there being anything, or 
 are they the creators?

 36. Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay! they 
 have no certainty.

 37. Or have they the treasures of your Lord with them? Or 
 have they been set in absolute authority?

 38. Or have they the means by which they listen? Then let 
 their listener bring a clear authority.

 39. Or has He daughters while you have sons?

 40. Or do you ask them for a reward, so that they are 
 overburdened by a debt?

 41. Or have they the unseen so that they write (it) down?

 42. Or do they desire a war? But those who disbelieve shall 
 be the vanquished ones in war.

 43. Or have they a god other than Allah? Glory be to Allah 
 from what they set up (with Him).

 44. And if they should see a portion of the heaven coming 
 down, they would say: Piled up clouds.

 45. Leave them then till they meet that day of theirs 
 wherein they shall be made to swoon (with terror):

 46. The day on which their struggle shall not avail them 
 aught, nor shall they be helped.

 47. And surely those who are unjust shall have a punishment 
 besides that (in the world), but most of them do not know.

 48. And wait patiently for the judgment of your Lord, for 
 surely you are before Our eyes, and sing the praise of your 
 Lord when you rise;

 49. And in the night, give Him glory too, and at the setting 
 of the stars.
