52. The Mountain (Al-Tur)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1 <section begin="52:1"/>By the Mountain! <section end="52:1"/>

2 <section begin="52:2"/>And a Book written <section end="52:2"/>

3 <section begin="52:3"/>On unfolded vellum! <section end="52:3"/>

4 <section begin="52:4"/>And the frequented House, <section end="52:4"/>

5 <section begin="52:5"/>And the elevated canopy, <section end="52:5"/>

6 <section begin="52:6"/>And the swollen sea! <section end="52:6"/>

7 <section begin="52:7"/>The chastisement of thy Lord will surely come to pass -- <section end="52:7"/>

8 <section begin="52:8"/>There is none to avert it; <section end="52:8"/>

9 <section begin="52:9"/>On the day when the heaven will be in a state of commotion, <section end="52:9"/>

10 <section begin="52:10"/>And the mountains will pass away, fleeing. <section end="52:10"/>

11 <section begin="52:11"/>Woe on that day to the deniers, <section end="52:11"/>

12 <section begin="52:12"/>Who amuse themselves by vain talk. <section end="52:12"/>

13 <section begin="52:13"/>The day when they are driven to hell-fire with violence. <section end="52:13"/>

14 <section begin="52:14"/>This is the Fire, which you gave the lie to. <section end="52:14"/>

15 <section begin="52:15"/>Is it magic or do you not see? <section end="52:15"/>

16 <section begin="52:16"/>Burn in it, then bear (it) patiently, or bear (it) not, it is the same to you. Your are requited only for what you did. <section end="52:16"/>

17 <section begin="52:17"/>The dutiful will be surely in Gardens and bliss, <section end="52:17"/>

18 <section begin="52:18"/>Rejoicing because of what their Lord has given them; and their Lord saved them from the chastisement of the burning Fire. <section end="52:18"/>

19 <section begin="52:19"/>Eat and drink with pleasure for what you did, <section end="52:19"/>

20 <section begin="52:20"/>Reclining on thrones set in lines, and We shall join them to pure beautiful ones. <section end="52:20"/>

21 <section begin="52:21"/>And those who believe and whose offspring follow them in faith -- We unite with them their offspring and We shall deprive them of naught of their work. Every man is pledged for what he does. <section end="52:21"/>

22 <section begin="52:22"/>And We shall aid them with fruit and flesh, as they desire. <section end="52:22"/>

23 <section begin="52:23"/>They pass therein from one to another a cup, wherein is neither vanity, nor sin. <section end="52:23"/>

24 <section begin="52:24"/>And round them go boys of theirs as if they were hidden pearls. <section end="52:24"/>

25 <section begin="52:25"/>And they will advance to each other, questioning <section end="52:25"/>

26 <section begin="52:26"/>Saying: Surely we feared before on account of our families. <section end="52:26"/>

27 <section begin="52:27"/>But Allah has been gracious to us and He has saved us from the chastisement of the hot wind. <section end="52:27"/>

28 <section begin="52:28"/>Surely We called upon Him before. Surely, He is the Benign, the Merciful. <section end="52:28"/>

29 <section

begin="52:29"/>So remind for, by the grace of thy Lord thou art no soothsayer, nor madman. <section end="52:29"/>

30 <section begin="52:30"/>Or say they: A poet -- we wait for him the evil accidents of time. <section end="52:30"/>

31 <section begin="52:31"/>Say: Wait, I too wait along with you. <section end="52:31"/>

32 <section begin="52:32"/>Or do their understandings bid them this? Or are they an inordinate people? <section end="52:32"/>

33 <section begin="52:33"/>Or say they: He has forged it. Nay, they have no faith. <section end="52:33"/>

34 <section begin="52:34"/>Then let them bring a saying like it, if they are truthful. <section end="52:34"/>

35 <section begin="52:35"/>Or were they created without a (creative) agency? Or are they the creators? <section end="52:35"/>

36 <section begin="52:36"/>Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they are sure of nothing. <section end="52:36"/>

37 <section begin="52:37"/>Or have they the treasures of thy Lord with them? Or have they absolute authority? <section end="52:37"/>

38 <section begin="52:38"/>Or have they the means by which they listen? Then let their listener bring a clear authority. <section end="52:38"/>

39 <section begin="52:39"/>Or has He daughters and you have sons? <section end="52:39"/>

40 <section begin="52:40"/>Or askest thou a reward from them so that they are over-burdened by a debt? <section end="52:40"/>

41 <section begin="52:41"/>Or possess they the unseen, so they write (it) down? <section end="52:41"/>

42 <section begin="52:42"/>Or do they intend a plot? But those who disbelieve will be the ensnared ones in the plot. <section end="52:42"/>

43 <section begin="52:43"/>Or have they a god other than Allah? Glory be to Allah from what they set up (with Him) <section end="52:43"/>

44 <section begin="52:44"/>And if they were to see a portion of the heaven coming down, they would say: Piled-up clouds! <section end="52:44"/>

45 <section begin="52:45"/>Leave them then till they meet that day of theirs wherein they are smitten with punishment: <section end="52:45"/>

46 <section begin="52:46"/>The day when their struggle will avail them naught, nor will they be helped. <section end="52:46"/>

47 <section begin="52:47"/>And surely for those who do wrong there is a chastisement besides that; but most of them knnw not. <section end="52:47"/>

48 <section begin="52:48"/>And wait patiently for the judgment of thy Lord, for surely thou art before Our eyes, and celebrate the praise of thy Lord, when thou risest, <section end="52:48"/>

49 <section begin="52:49"/>And in the night, give Him glory, too, and at the setting of the stars. <section end="52:49"/>
