In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
76:1 Surely there came over man a time when he was nothing that could be mentioned.
76:2 Surely We have created man from sperm mixed (with ovum), to try him, so We have made him hearing, seeing.
76:3 We have truly shown him the way; he may be thankful or unthankful.
76:4 Surely We have prepared for the disbelievers chains and shackles and a burning Fire.
76:5 The righteous truly drink of a cup tempered with camphor —
76:6 A fountain from which the servants of Allah drink, making it flow in abundance.
76:7 They fulfil vows and fear a day, the evil of which is widespread.
76:8 And they give food, out of love for Him, to the poor and the orphan and the captive.
76:9 We feed you, for Allah’s pleasure only — We desire from you neither reward nor thanks.
76:10 Surely we fear from our Lord a stern, distressful day.
76:11 So Allah will ward off from them the evil of that day, and cause them to meet with splendour and happiness;
76:12 And reward them, for their steadfastness, with a Garden and with silk,
76:13 Reclining therein on raised couches; they will see therein neither (excessive heat of) sun nor intense cold.
76:14 And close down upon them are its shadows, and its fruits are made near (to them), easy to reach.
76:15 And round about them are made to go vessels of silver and goblets of glass,
76:16 Crystal-clear, made of silver — they have measured them according to a measure.
76:17 And they are made to drink therein a cup tempered with ginger —
76:18 (Of) a fountain therein called Salsabil.
76:19 And round about them will go youths, never altering in age; when thou seest them thou wilt think them to be scattered pearls.
76:20 And when thou lookest thither, thou seest blessings and a great kingdom.
76:21 On them are garments of fine green silk and thick brocade, and they are adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord makes them to drink a pure drink.
76:22 Surely this is a reward for you, and your striving is recompensed.
76:23 Surely We have revealed the Quran to thee, in portions.
76:24 So wait patiently for the judgment of thy Lord, and obey not a sinner or an ungrateful one among them.
76:25 And glorify the name of thy Lord morning and evening.
76:26 And during part of the night adore Him, and glorify Him throughout a long night.
76:27 Surely these love the transitory life and neglect a grievous day before them.
76:28 We created them and made firm their make, and, when We will, We can bring in their place the like of them by change.
76:29 Surely this is a Reminder; so whoever will, let him take a way to his Lord.
76:30 And you will not, unless Allah please. Surely Allah is ever Knowing, Wise —
76:31 He admits whom He pleases to His mercy; and the wrongdoers — He has prepared for them a painful chastisement.
