078 - Soorah an-Naba. - (The News) - [Makkee]
In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[078:001] What are they asking one another about?
[078:002] About the great news (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism, the Qur'ân which Prophet Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] brought and the Day of Resurrection),
[078:003] About which they are in disagreement.
[078:004] Nay, they will come to know!
[078:005] Nay, again, they will come to know!
[078:006] Have We not made the earth as a bed,
[078:007] And the mountains as pegs?
[078:008] And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad).
[078:009] And We have made your sleep as a thing for rest.
[078:010] And We have made the night as a covering (through its darkness),
[078:011] And We have made the day for livelihood.
[078:012] And We have built above you seven strong (heavens),
[078:013] And We have made (therein) a shining lamp (sun).
[078:014] And We have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water.
[078:015] That We may produce therewith corn and vegetation,
[078:016] And gardens of thick growth.
[078:017] Verily, the Day of Decision is a fixed time,
[078:018] The Day when the Trumpet will be blown, and you shall come forth in crowds (groups after groups). (Tafsir At-Tabari)
[078:019] And the heaven shall be opened, and it will become as gates,
[078:020] And the mountains shall be moved away from their places and they will be as if they were a mirage.
[078:021] Truly, Hell is a place of ambush –
[078:022] A dwelling place for the Tâghûn (those who transgress the boundary limits set by Allâh, like polytheists, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh, hypocrites, sinners, criminals),
[078:023] They will abide therein for ages.
[078:024] Nothing cool shall they taste therein, nor any drink.
[078:025] Except boiling water, and dirty wound discharges –
[078:026] An exact recompense (according to their evil crimes).
[078:027] For verily, they used not to look for a reckoning.
[078:028] But they denied Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, and that which Our Prophet brought) completely.
[078:029] And all things We have recorded in a Book.
[078:030] So taste you (the results of your evil actions). No increase shall We give you, except in torment.
