The Holy Qur'an Translation

 
 



Al-Mursalāt

In the name of ALLAH, the Gracious, the Merciful.
By those who send forth to spread goodness, (1) Then they push on with a forceful pushing, (2) And by those who spread the Truth, a good spreading, (3) Then they distinguish fully between good and evil; (4) Then they carry the Exhortation far and wide, (5) To excuse some and warn others, (6) Verily, that which you are promised must come to pass. (7) So when the stars are made to lose their light, (8) And when the heaven is rent asunder, (9) And when the mountains are blown away like dust, (10) And when the Messengers are made to appear at the appointed time - (11) To what day have these portents been deferred ? (12) To the Day of Decision. (13) And what should make thee know what the Day of Decision is - (14) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (15) Did WE not destroy the earlier peoples ? (16) WE will now cause the later ones to follow them. (17) Thus do WE deal with the guilty. (18) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (19) Did WE not create you from an insignificant fluid, (20) And placed it in a safe resting place, (21) For a known measure of time ? (22) Thus did WE determine; and how excellent Determiner are WE ! (23) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (24) Have WE not made the earth so as to hold (25) The living and the dead ? (26) And WE placed therein high mountains, and gave you sweet water to drink. (27) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (28) They will be commanded: `Now move on towards that which you treated as a lie, (29) `Aye, move on towards a three-pronged shadow, (30) `Neither affording shade, nor protecting from the blame.' (31) It throws up sparks like huge castles, (32) As if they were tawny camels. (33) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (34) This is a day when they shall not be able to speak, (35) Nor shall they be permitted to offer excuses. (36) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (37) This is the Day of Decision. WE have gathered you and all the earlier peoples together; (38) `If now you have any stratagem, try your stratagem against me.' (39) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (40) The righteous will be in the midst of shades and springs, (41) And fruits such as they will desire. (42) It will be said to them, `Eat and drink pleasantly as a reward for what you did' - (43) Thus, surely, do WE reward those who do good. (44) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (45) Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little while in this world, O rejectors of Truth, surely, you are the guilty ones.' (46) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (47) And when it is said unto them, `Bow down,' they bow not down. (48) Woe on that day unto those who reject the Truth ! (49) In what discourse then, after this, will they believe ? (50)
