1A supplicant asked for a punishment bound to happen
2To the disbelievers; of it there is no preventer.
3[It is] from Allah, owner of the ways of ascent.
4The angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him during a Day the extent of which is fifty thousand years.
5So be patient with gracious patience.
6Indeed, they see it [as] distant,
7But We see it [as] near.
8On the Day the sky will be like murky oil,
9And the mountains will be like wool,
10And no friend will ask [anything of] a friend,
11They will be shown each other. The criminal will wish that he could be ransomed from the punishment of that Day by his children
12And his wife and his brother
13And his nearest kindred who shelter him
14And whoever is on earth entirely [so] then it could save him.
15No! Indeed, it is the Flame [of Hell],
16A remover of exteriors.
17It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience]
18And collected [wealth] and hoarded.
19Indeed, mankind was created anxious:
20When evil touches him, impatient,
21And when good touches him, withholding [of it],
22Except the observers of prayer -
23Those who are constant in their prayer
24And those within whose wealth is a known right
25For the petitioner and the deprived -
26And those who believe in the Day of Recompense
27And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord -
28Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe -
29And those who guard their private parts
30Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed -
31But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors -
32And those who are to their trusts and promises attentive
33And those who are in their testimonies upright
34And those who [carefully] maintain their prayer:
35They will be in gardens, honored.
36So what is [the matter] with those who disbelieve, hastening [from] before you, [O Muhammad],
37[To sit] on [your] right and [your] left in separate groups?
38Does every person among them aspire to enter a garden of pleasure?
39No! Indeed, We have created them from that which they know.
40So I swear by the Lord of [all] risings and settings that indeed We are able
41To replace them with better than them; and We are not to be outdone.
42So leave them to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their Day which they are promised -
43The Day they will emerge from the graves rapidly as if they were, toward an erected idol, hastening.
44Their eyes humbled, humiliation will cover them. That is the Day which they had been promised.
