077. The Emissaries

In the name of Allah, tho Beneficent, the Merciful.
1.I swear by the emissary winds, sent one after another (for men's benefit),
2.By the raging hurricanes,
3.Which scatter clouds to their destined places,
4.Then separate them one from another,
S.Then I swear by the angels who bring down the revelation,
6.To clear or to warn
7.Most surely what you are threatened with must come to pass.
8.So when the stars are made to lose their light,
9.And when the heaven is rent asunder,
10.And when the mountains are carried away as dust,
11.And when the apostles are gathered at their appointed time
li.To what day is the doom fixed?
13.To the day of decision
14.And what will make you comprehend what the day of decision is?
15.Woe on that day to the rejecters
16.Did We not destroy the former generations?
19.Woe on that day to the rejecters
20.Did We not create you from contemptible water?
21.Then We placed it in a secure resting-place,
22.Till an appointed term,
23.So We proportion it-- how well are We at proportioning (things).
24.Woe on that day to the rejecters
25.Have We not made the earth to draw together to itself,
26.The living and the dead,
27.And made therein lofty mountains, and given you to drink of sweet water?
28.Woe on that day to the rejecters
29.Walk on to that which you called a lie
30.Walk on to the covering having three branches,
31.Neither having the coolness of the shade nor availing against the flame.
32.Surely it sends up sparks like palaces,
33.As if they were tawny camels
34.Woe on that day to the rejecters
35.This is the day on which they shall not speak,
36.And permission shall not be given to them so that they should offer excuses.
37.Woe on that day to the rejecters
38.This is the day of decision: We have gathered you and those of yore.
39.So if you have a plan, plan against Me (now)
40.Woe on that day to the rejecters
41.Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be amid shades and fountains,
42.And fruits such as they desire
43.Eat and drink pleasantly because of what you did
44.Surely thus do We reward the doers of good
45.Woe on that day to the rejecters
46.Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little; surely you are guilty.
47.Woe on that day to the rejecters
48.And where it is said to them: Bow down, they do not bow down.
49.Woe on that day to the rejecters
50.In what announcement, then, after it, will they believe?
