The News (Al-Naba')
40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej) before The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ About what are they asking one another? (1) (It is) of the awful tidings, (2) concerning which they have disputes. (3) Surely yes, they will soon come to know! (4) Again, indeed, they shall know! (5) Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse, (6) And the mountains as stakes? (7) And We have created you in pairs. (8) And We have made your sleep as a rest. (9) And made the night as a covering, (10) and made the day [a symbol of] life. (11) And We have built above you seven firmaments, (12) And have appointed a dazzling lamp, (13) And do We not send down from the clouds water in abundance, (14) Thereby to produce grain and plant, (15) and gardens dense with follage. (16) Verily, the Day of Decision is a fixed time, (17) The Day when the Trumpet will be blown, and you shall come forth in crowds (groups); (18) and the heaven shall be opened, and become gates, (19) And the mountains shall be moved off so that they shall remain a mere semblance. (20) Lo! hell lurketh in ambush, (21) A place of resort for the inordinate, (22) In which they will remain for ages [unending]. (23) They will not taste therein cool or any drink. (24) Except scalding water and [foul] purulence - (25) as a fitting recompense for their deeds. (26) They did not expect such a Judgment (27) having given the lie to Our messages one and all: (28) However, We have recorded everything in a book. (29) So taste (the fruit of your deeds). We shall only increase your torment. (30)
