1 ) About what are they asking one another?
( 2 ) About the great news –
( 3 ) That over which they are in disagreement.
( 4 ) No! They are going to know.
( 5 ) Then, no! They are going to know.
( 6 ) Have We not made the earth a resting place?
( 7 ) And the mountains as stakes?
( 8 ) And We created you in pairs
( 9 ) And made your sleep [a means for] rest
( 10 ) And made the night as clothing
( 11 ) And made the day for livelihood
( 12 ) And constructed above you seven strong [heavens]
( 13 ) And made [therein] a burning lamp
( 14 ) And sent down, from the rain clouds, pouring water
( 15 ) That We may bring forth thereby grain and vegetation
( 16 ) And gardens of entwined growth.
( 17 ) Indeed, the Day of Judgement is an appointed time –
( 18 ) The Day the Horn is blown and you will come forth in multitudes
( 19 ) And the heaven is opened and will become gateways
( 20 ) And the mountains are removed and will be [but] a mirage.
( 21 ) Indeed, Hell has been lying in wait
( 22 ) For the transgressors, a place of return,
( 23 ) In which they will remain for ages [unending].
( 24 ) They will not taste therein [any] coolness or drink
( 25 ) Except scalding water and [foul] purulence –
( 26 ) An appropriate recompense.
( 27 ) Indeed, they were not expecting an account
( 28 ) And denied Our verses with [emphatic] denial.
( 29 ) But all things We have enumerated in writing.
( 30 ) \”So taste [the penalty], and never will We increase you except in torment.\”
