In the Name of Allah—the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
What will be the condition of the disbelievers and the believers on the day of judgement
1

Has the news of the Overwhelming Event reached you ˹O Prophet˺?

2

On that Day ˹some˺ faces will be downcast,

3

˹totally˺ overburdened, exhausted,

4

burning in a scorching Fire,

5

left to drink from a scalding spring.

6

They will have no food except a foul, thorny shrub,

7

neither nourishing nor satisfying hunger.

8

On that Day ˹other˺ faces will be glowing with bliss,

9

˹fully˺ pleased with their striving,

10

in an elevated Garden,

11

where no idle talk will be heard.

12

In it will be a running spring,

13

along with thrones raised high,

14

and cups set at hand,

15

and ˹fine˺ cushions lined up,

16

and ˹splendid˺ carpets spread out.

Wonders of nature, admonition and accountability
17

Do they not ever reflect on camels—how they were ˹masterfully˺ created;1

18

and the sky—how it was raised ˹high˺;

19

and the mountains—how they were firmly set up;

20

and the earth—how it was levelled out?

21

So, ˹continue to˺ remind ˹all, O  Prophet˺, for your duty is only to remind.

22

You are not ˹there˺ to compel them ˹to believe˺.

23

But whoever turns away, persisting in disbelief,

24

then Allah will inflict upon them the major punishment.1

25

Surely to Us is their return,

26

then surely with Us is their reckoning.
