Number of verses in sura: 40

Order of revelation: 80


[78:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


[78:1]  What are they questioning?


[78:2]  The great event.


[78:3]  That is disputed by them.


[78:4]  Indeed, they will find out.


[78:5]  Most assuredly, they will find out.


[78:6]  Did we not make the earth habitable?


[78:7]  And the mountains stabilizers?


[78:8]  We created you as mates (for one another).


[78:9]  We created sleeping so you can rest.


[78:10]  We made the night a cover.


[78:11]  And the day to seek provisions.


[78:12]  We built above you seven universes.


[78:13]  We created a bright lamp.


[78:14]  We send down from the clouds pouring water.


[78:15]  To produce with it grains and plants.


[78:16]  And various orchards.


[78:17]  The Day of Decision is appointed.


[78:18]  The day the horn is blown, and you come in throngs.


[78:19]  The heaven will be opened like gates.


[78:20]  The mountains will be removed, as if they were a mirage.


[78:21]  Gehenna is inevitable.


[78:22]  For the transgressors; it will be their abode.


[78:23]  They stay in it for ages.


[78:24]  They never taste in it coolness, nor a drink.


[78:25]  Only an inferno, and bitter food.


[78:26]  A just requital.


[78:27]  They never expected to be held accountable.


[78:28]  And utterly rejected our signs.


[78:29]  We counted everything in a record.


[78:30]  Suffer the consequences; we will only increase your retribution.


[78:31]  The righteous have deserved a reward.


[78:32]  Orchards and grapes.


[78:33]  Magnificent spouses.


[78:34]  Delicious drinks.


[78:35]  They will never hear in it any nonsense or lies.


[78:36]  A reward from your Lord; a generous recompense.


[78:37]  Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them. The Most Gracious. No one can abrogate His decisions.


[78:38]  The day will come when the Spirit and the angels will stand in a row. None will speak except those permitted by the Most Gracious, and they will utter only what is right.


[78:39]  Such is the inevitable day. Whoever wills let him take refuge in his Lord.


[78:40]  We have sufficiently warned you about an imminent retribution. That is the day when everyone will examine what his hands have sent forth, and the disbeliever will say, “Oh, I wish I were dust.”
