76:1Has there come upon man a period of time when he was nothing to be mentioned?

76:2We created man from a liquid mixture, to test him; and We made him hearing and seeing.

76:3We guided him to the way, be he appreciative or unappreciative.

76:4We have prepared for the faithless chains, and yokes, and a Searing Fire.

76:5But the righteous will drink from a cup whose mixture is aroma.

76:6A spring from which the servants of God will drink, making it gush abundantly.

76:7They fulfill their vows, and dread a Day whose ill is widespread.

76:8And they feed, for the love of Him, the poor, and the orphan, and the captive.

76:9“We only feed you for the sake of God. We want from you neither compensation, nor gratitude.

76:10We dread from our Lord a frowning grim Day.”

76:11So God will protect them from the ills of that Day, and will grant them radiance and joy.

76:12And will reward them for their patience with a Garden and silk.

76:13Reclining therein on the thrones; experiencing therein neither sun, nor frost.

76:14Its shade hovering over them, and its fruit brought low within reach.

76:15Passing around them are vessels of silver, and cups of crystal.

76:16Crystal of silver—they measured them exactly.

76:17They will be served therein with a cup whose flavor is Zanjabeel.

76:18A spring therein named Salsabeel.

76:19Passing among them are eternalized youths. If you see them, you would think them sprinkled pearls.

76:20Wherever you look, you see bliss, and a vast kingdom.

76:21Upon them are garments of green silk, and satin. And they will be adorned with bracelets of silver. And their Lord will offer them a pure drink.

76:22“This is a reward for you. Your efforts are well appreciated.”

76:23It is We who sent down the Quran upon you—a gradual revelation.

76:24So be patient for the decision of your Lord, and do not obey the sinner or the blasphemer among them.

76:25And mention the Name of your Lord, morning and evening.

76:26And for part of the night, prostrate yourself to Him, and glorify Him long into the night.

76:27As for these: they love the fleeting life, and leave behind a Heavy Day.

76:28We created them, and strengthened their frame; and whenever We will, We can replace them with others like them.

76:29This is a reminder; so whoever wills, let him take a path to his Lord.

76:30Yet you cannot will, unless God wills. God is Knowing and Wise.

76:31He admits into His mercy whomever He wills. But as for the wrongdoers, He has prepared for them a painful punishment.
