PICKTHAL: Whereof do they question one another?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.002

PICKTHAL: (It is) of the awful tidings,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.003

PICKTHAL: Concerning which they are in disagreement.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.004

PICKTHAL: Nay, but they will come to know!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.005

PICKTHAL: Nay, again, but they will come to know!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.006

PICKTHAL: Have We not made the earth an expanse,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.007

PICKTHAL: And the high hills bulwarks?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.008

PICKTHAL: And We have created you in pairs,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.009

PICKTHAL: And have appointed your sleep for repose,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.010

PICKTHAL: And have appointed the night as a cloak,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.011

PICKTHAL: And have appointed the day for livelihood.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.012

PICKTHAL: And We have built above you seven strong (heavens),

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.013

PICKTHAL: And have appointed a dazzling lamp,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.014

PICKTHAL: And have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.015

PICKTHAL: Thereby to produce grain and plant,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.016

PICKTHAL: And gardens of thick foliage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.017

PICKTHAL: Lo! the Day of Decision is a fixed time,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.018

PICKTHAL: A day when the trumpet is blown and ye come in multitudes,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.019

PICKTHAL: And the heaven is opened and becometh as gates,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.020

PICKTHAL: And the hills are set in motion and become as a mirage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.021

PICKTHAL: Lo! hell lurketh in ambush,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.022

PICKTHAL: A home for the rebellious.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.023

PICKTHAL: They will abide therein for ages.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.024

PICKTHAL: Therein taste they neither coolness nor (any) drink

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.025

PICKTHAL: Save boiling water and a paralysing cold:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.026

PICKTHAL: Reward proportioned (to their evil deeds).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.027

PICKTHAL: For lo! they looked not for a reckoning;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.028

PICKTHAL: They called Our revelations false with strong denial.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.029

PICKTHAL: Everything have We recorded in a Book.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.030

PICKTHAL: So taste (of that which ye have earned). No increase do We give
you save of torment.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.031

PICKTHAL: Lo! for the duteous is achievement -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.032

PICKTHAL: Gardens enclosed and vineyards,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.033

PICKTHAL: And voluptuous women of equal age;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.034

PICKTHAL: And a full cup.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.035

PICKTHAL: There hear they never vain discourse, nor lying -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.036

PICKTHAL: Requital from thy Lord - a gift in payment -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.037

PICKTHAL: Lord of the heavens and the earth, and (all) that is between
them, the Beneficent; with Whom none can converse.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.038

PICKTHAL: On the day when the angels and the Spirit stand arrayed, they
speak not, saving him whom the Beneficent alloweth and who speaketh right.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.039

PICKTHAL: That is the True Day. So whoso will should seek recourse unto his
Lord.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

078.040

PICKTHAL: Lo! We warn you of a doom at hand, a day whereon a man will look
on that which his own hands have sent before, and the disbeliever will cry:
"Would that I were dust!"
