52 At-Tur | The Mount

  • 52:1

    By the mount,

  • 52:2

    A recorded book.

  • 52:3

    In paper published.

  • 52:4

    The frequented/built sanctuary.

  • 52:5

    The ceiling which is elevated.

  • 52:6

    The sea that is set aflame.

  • 52:7

    Your Lord's retribution is unavoidable.

  • 52:8

    Nothing can stop it.

  • 52:9

    The day when the sky will violently thunder.

  • 52:10

    The mountains will be wiped out.

  • 52:11

    Woes on that day to the deniers.

  • 52:12

    Who are in their recklessness, playing.

  • 52:13

    The day they will be called into hell, forcibly:

  • 52:14

    "This is the fire which you used to deny!"

  • 52:15

    "Is this magic, or do you not see?"

  • 52:16

    "Enter it, whether you are patient or impatient, it will be the same for you. You are only being requited for what you used to do."

  • 52:17

    The righteous are in paradises and bliss.

  • 52:18

    Delighted by what their Lord has granted them; and their Lord has spared them the retribution of hell.

  • 52:19

    Eat and drink happily because of what you used to do.

  • 52:20

    They recline on arranged furnishings, and We coupled them with wonderful companions.

  • 52:21

    Those who acknowledged, and their progeny also followed them in acknowl-edgement; We will have their progeny join them. We never fail to reward them for any work. Every person is paid for what he did.

  • 52:22

    We will supply them with fruit and meat such as they desire.

  • 52:23

    They will exchange one with another a cup in which there is no harm, nor regret.

  • 52:24

    Around them will be children like protected pearls.

  • 52:25

    They came to one another asking.

  • 52:26

    They said, "We used to be compassionate among our people."

  • 52:27

    "God thus blessed us, and has spared us the agony of the fiery winds."

  • 52:28

    "We used to implore Him before; He is the Kind, the Compassionate."

  • 52:29

    Therefore, you shall remind. For by the grace of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer, nor mad.

  • 52:30

    Or do they say, "He is a poet; so let us just wait until a disaster befalls him."

  • 52:31

    Say, "Continue waiting; for I will wait along with you."

  • 52:32

    Or do their dreams dictate this to them, or are they a transgressing people?

  • 52:33

    Or do they say, "He made it all up"? No, they simply do not acknowledge.

  • 52:34

    Let them produce a hadith like this, if they are truthful.

  • 52:35

    Or were they created from nothing? Or was it they who created?

  • 52:36

    Or did they create the heavens and the earth? No, they do not reason.

  • 52:37

    Or do they possess the treasures of your Lord? Are they in control?

  • 52:38

    Or do they have a stairway that enables them to listen? Then let their Hearers show their proof.

  • 52:39

    Or to Him belong the daughters, and to you belong the sons?

  • 52:40

    Or do you ask them for a wage, thus they are burdened by the fine?

  • 52:41

    Or do they know the future, thus they have it recorded?

  • 52:42

    Or do they intend to scheme? Indeed, it is the ingrates who are schemed against.

  • 52:43

    Or do they have another god besides God? God be glorified above what they set up.

  • 52:44

    If they see an object falling from the sky, they will say, "Piled clouds!"

  • 52:45

    So disregard them until they meet the day in which they are struck.

  • 52:46

    The day when their schemes will not protect them, nor will they be helped.

  • 52:47

    For those who transgressed will be retribution beyond this, but most of them do not know.

  • 52:48

    You shall be patient for the judgment of your Lord, for you are in Our sights, and glorify the praise of your Lord when you get up.

  • 52:49

    Also during the night glorify Him, and at the setting of the stars.
