By the Mount,
And a Scripture inscribed
On fine parchment unrolled,
And the House frequented,
And the roof exalted,
And the sea kept filled,
Lo! the doom of thy Lord will surely come to pass;
There is none that can ward it off.
On the day when the heaven will heave with (awful) heaving,
And the mountains move away with (awful) movement,
Then woe that day unto the deniers
Who play in talk of grave matters;
The day when they are thrust with a (disdainful) thrust, into the fire of hell
(And it is said unto them): This is the Fire which ye were wont to deny.
Is this magic, or do ye not see?
Endure the heat thereof, and whether ye are patient of it or impatient of it is all one for you. Ye are only being paid for what ye used to do.
Lo! those who kept their duty dwell in gardens and delight,
Happy because of what their Lord hath given them, and (because) their Lord hath warded off from them the torment of hell-fire.
(And it is said unto them): Eat and drink in health (as a reward) for what ye used to do,
Reclining on ranged couches. And we wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes.
