052 : The Mount

52:1
By the Mount (of Revelation);

52:2
By a Decree inscribed

52:3
In a Scroll unfolded;

52:4
By the much-frequented Fane;

52:5
By the Canopy Raised High;

52:6
And by the Ocean filled with Swell;-

52:7
Verily, the Doom of thy Lord will indeed come to pass;-

52:8
There is none can avert it;-

52:9
On the Day when the firmament will be in dreadful commotion.

52:10
And the mountains will fly hither and thither.

52:11
Then woe that Day to those that treat (Truth) as Falsehood;-

52:12
That play (and paddle) in shallow trifles.

52:13
That Day shall they be thrust down to the Fire of Hell, irresistibly.

52:14
"This:, it will be said, "Is the Fire,- which ye were wont to deny!

52:15
"Is this then a fake, or is it ye that do not see?

52:16
"Burn ye therein: the same is it to you whether ye bear it with patience, or not: Ye but receive the recompense of your (own) deeds."

52:17
As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness,-

52:18
Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them, and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire.

52:19
(To them will be said:) "Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds."

52:20
They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.

52:21
And those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith,- to them shall We join their families: Nor shall We deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: (Yet) is each individual in pledge for his deeds.

52:22
And We shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat, anything they shall desire.

52:23
They shall there exchange, one with another, a (loving) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill.

52:24
Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them, young male servants (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.

52:25
They will advance to each other, engaging in mutual enquiry.

52:26
They will say: "Aforetime, we were not without fear for the sake of our people.

52:27
"But Allah has been good to us, and has delivered us from the Penalty of the Scorching Wind.

52:28
"Truly, we did call unto Him from of old: truly it is He, the Beneficent, the Merciful!"

52:29
Therefore proclaim thou the praises (of thy Lord): for by the Grace of thy Lord, thou art no (vulgar) soothsayer, nor art thou one possessed.

52:30
Or do they say:- "A Poet! we await for him some calamity (hatched) by Time!"

52:31
Say thou: "Await ye!- I too will wait along with you!"

52:32
Is it that their faculties of understanding urge them to this, or are they but a people transgressing beyond bounds?

52:33
Or do they say, "He fabricated the (Message)"? Nay, they have no faith!

52:34
Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth!

52:35
Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators?

52:36
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief.

52:37
Or are the Treasures of thy Lord with them, or are they the managers (of affairs)?

52:38
Or have they a ladder, by which they can (climb up to heaven and) listen (to its secrets)? Then let (such a) listener of theirs produce a manifest proof.

52:39
Or has He only daughters and ye have sons?

52:40
Or is it that thou dost ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-

52:41
Or that the Unseen in it their hands, and they write it down?

52:42
Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy Allah are themselves involved in a Plot!

52:43
Or have they a god other than Allah? Exalted is Allah far above the things they associate with Him!

52:44
Were they to see a piece of the sky falling (on them), they would (only) say: "Clouds gathered in heaps!"

52:45
So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs, wherein they shall (perforce) swoon (with terror),-

52:46
The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing and no help shall be given them.

52:47
And verily, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this: But most of them understand not.

52:48
Now await in patience the command of thy Lord: for verily thou art in Our eyes: and celebrate the praises of thy Lord the while thou standest forth,

52:49
And for part of the night also praise thou Him,- and at the retreat of the stars!
