SURA LXXVIII (78) - The News (Mecca - 41 Verses) (XXXVII - 51)
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the MercifulOf what ask they of one another?
And we send down water in abundance from the rain-clouds,That we may bring froth by it corn and herbs,
The day when there shall be a blast on the trumpet, and ye shall come incrowds,
And the heaven shall be opened and be full of portals,
78:20 And the mountains shall be set in motion, and melt into thin vapour.Hell truly shall be a place of snares,
No coolness shall they taste therein nor any drink,Save boiling water and running sores;
And they gave the lie to our signs, charging them with falsehood;But we noted and wrote down all:
78:30 "Taste this then: and we will give you increase of nought but torment."But, for the God-fearing is a blissful abode,
And damsels with swelling breasts, their peers in age,And a full cup:
There shall they hear no vain discourse nor any falsehood:PA recompense from thy Lord - sufficing gift! -
Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and of all that between them lieth
- the God of Mercy! But not a word shall they obtain from Him.
On the day whereon the Spirit and the Angels shall be ranged in order,
they shall not speak: save he whom the God of Mercy shall permit, and whoshall say that which is right.
This is the sure day. Whoso then will, let him take the path of returnto his Lord.
78:40 Verily, we warn you of a chastisement close at hand:
The day on which a man shall see the deeds which his hands have sent
before him; and when the unbeliever shall say, "Oh! would I were dust!"
