In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . A questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall

2 . Upon the disbelievers , which none can repel ,

3 . From Allah , Lord of the Ascending Stairways

4 . ( Whereby ) the angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day whereof the span is fifty thousand years .

5 . But be patient ( O Muhammad ) with a patience fair to see .

6 . Lo! they behold it afar off

7 . While We behold it nigh :

8 . The day when the sky will become as molten copper ,

9 . And the hills become as flakes of wool ,

10 . And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend

11 . Though they will be given sight of them . The guilty man will long be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children

12 . And his spouse and his brother

13 . And his kin that harbored him

14 . And all that are in the earth , if then it might deliver him .

15 . But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hell

16 . Eager to roast ;

17 . It calleth him who turned and fled ( from truth ) ,

18 . And hoarded ( wealth ) and withheld it .

19 . Lo! man was created anxious ,

20 . Fretful when evil befalleth him

21 . And , when good befalleth him , grudging ;

22 . Save worshippers

23 . Who are constant at their worship

24 . And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged

25 . For the beggar and the destitute ;

26 . And those who believe in the Day of Judgment ,

27 . And those who are fearful of their Lord ' s doom

28 . Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure

29 . And those who preserve their chastity

30 . Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess , for thus they are not blameworthy ;

31 . But whoso seeketh more than that , those are they who are transgressors ;

32 . And those who keep their pledges and their covenant .

33 . And those who stand by their testimony

34 . And those who are attentive at their worship ,

35 . These will dwell in Gardens , honored .

36 . What aileth those who disbelieve , that they keep staring toward thee ( O Muhammad ) , open eyed ,

37 . On the right and on the left , in groups?

38 . Doth every man among them hope to enter the Garden of Delight?

39 . Nay , verily . Lo! We created them from what they know .

40 . But nay! I swear by the Lord of the rising places and the setting places of the planets that We are Able

41 . To replace them by ( others ) better than them . And We are not to be outrun .

42 . So let them chat and play until they meet their Day which they are promised ,

43 . The day when they come forth from the graves in haste . as racing to a goal ,

44 . With eyes aghast , abasement stupefying them : Such is the Day which they are promised .
