52:2And a Book inscribed.

52:3In a published scroll.

52:4And the frequented House.

52:5And the elevated roof.

52:6And the seething sea.

52:7The punishment of your Lord is coming.

52:8There is nothing to avert it.

52:9On the Day when the heaven sways in agitation.

52:10And the mountains go into motion.

52:11Woe on that Day to the deniers.

52:12Those who play with speculation.

52:13The Day when they are shoved into the Fire of Hell forcefully.

52:14“This is the Fire which you used to deny.

52:15Is this magic, or do you not see?

52:16Burn in it. Whether you are patient, or impatient, it is the same for you. You are only being repaid for what you used to do.”

52:17But the righteous will be amid gardens and bliss.

52:18Enjoying what their Lord has given them, and their Lord has spared them the suffering of Hell.

52:19Eat and drink happily, for what you used to do.

52:20Relaxing on luxurious furnishings; and We will couple them with gorgeous spouses.

52:21Those who believed and their offspring followed them in faith—We will unite them with their offspring, and We will not deprive them of any of their works. Every person is hostage to what he has earned.

52:22And We will supply them with fruit, and meat; such as they desire.

52:23They will exchange therein a cup; wherein is neither harm, nor sin.

52:24Serving them will be youths like hidden pearls.

52:25And they will approach one another, inquiring.

52:26They will say, “Before this, we were fearful for our families.

52:27But God blessed us, and spared us the agony of the Fiery Winds.

52:28Before this, we used to pray to Him. He is the Good, the Compassionate.”

52:29So remind. By the grace of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer, nor a madman.

52:30Or do they say, “A poet—we await for him a calamity of time”?

52:31Say, “Go on waiting; I will be waiting with you.”

52:32Or is it that their dreams compel them to this? Or are they aggressive people?

52:33Or do they say, “He made it up”? Rather, they do not believe.

52:34So let them produce a discourse like it, if they are truthful.

52:35Or were they created out of nothing? Or are they the creators?

52:36Or did they create the heavens and the earth? In fact, they are not certain.

52:37Or do they possess the treasuries of your Lord? Or are they the controllers?

52:38Or do they have a stairway by means of which they listen? Then let their listener produce a clear proof.

52:39Or for Him the daughters, and for you the sons?

52:40Or do you demand a payment from them, and they are burdened by debt?

52:41Or do they know the future, and they are writing it down?

52:42Or are they planning a conspiracy? The conspiracy will befall the disbelievers.

52:43Or do they have a god besides God? God transcends what they associate.

52:44Even if they were to see lumps of the sky falling down, they would say, “A mass of clouds.”

52:45So leave them until they meet their Day in which they will be stunned.

52:46The Day when their ploys will avail them nothing; and they will not be helped.

52:47For those who do wrong, there is a punishment besides that; but most of them do not know.

52:48So patiently await the decision of your Lord, for you are before Our Eyes; and proclaim the praises of your Lord when you arise.

52:49And glorify Him during the night, and at the receding of the stars.
