Surah 77. The Emissaries, Winds Sent Forth
77:1. By the (Winds) Sent Forth one after another (to man's profit);
77:2. Which then blow violently in tempestuous Gusts,
77:3. And scatter (things) far and wide;
77:4. Then separate them, one from another,
77:5. Then spread abroad a Message,
77:6. Whether of Justification or of Warning,
77:7. Assuredly, what ye are promised must come to pass.
77:8. Then when the "stars" become dim;
77:9. When the "heaven" is cleft asunder;
77:10. When the "mountains" are scattered (to the winds) as dust;
77:11. And when the Apostles are (all) appointed a time (to collect);-
77:12. For what Day are these (portents) deferred?
77:13. For the Day of Sorting-Out.
77:14. And what will explain to thee what is the Day of Sorting-Out?
77:15. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:16. Did We not destroy the men of old (for their evil)?
77:17. So shall We make later (generations) follow them.
77:18. Thus do We deal with men of sin.
77:19. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:20. Have We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable?-
77:21. The which We placed in a place of rest, firmly fixed,
77:22. For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)?
77:23. For We do determine (according to need) for We are the Best to determine (things).
77:24. Ah woe, that Day! To the Rejecters of Truth!
77:25. Have We not made the Earth (as a place) to draw together
77:26. The "Living" and the "Dead",
77:27. And made therein mountains standing firm, lofty (in stature); and provided for you water sweet (and wholesome)?
77:28. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:29. (It will be said:) "Depart ye to that which ye used to reject as false!
77:30. "Depart ye to a Shadow (of smoke ascending) in three columns,
77:31. "(Which yields) no shade of coolness, and is of no use against the fierce Blaze.
77:32. "Indeed it throws about sparks (huge) as Forts,
77:33. "As if there were (a string of) yellow camels (marching swiftly)."
77:34. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:35. That will be a Day when they shall not be able to speak.
77:36. Nor will it be open to them to put forth pleas.
77:37. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:38. That will be a Day of Sorting out! We shall gather you together and those before (you)!
77:39. Now, if ye have a trick (or plot), use it against Me!
77:40. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:41. As to the Righteous, they shall be amidst (cool) shades and springs (of water).
77:42. And (they shall have) fruits,- all they desire.
77:43. "Eat ye and drink ye to your heart's content: for that ye worked (Righteousness).
77:44. Thus do We certainly reward the Doers of Good.
77:45. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:46. (O ye unjust!) Eat ye and enjoy yourselves (but) a little while, for that ye are Sinners.
77:47. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:48. And when it is said to them, "Prostrate your "selves"!" they do not so.
77:49. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!
77:50. Then what Message, after that, will they believe in?
