Chapter 77:
Al-Mursalat — Those Sent Forth:

Revealed at Makkah: 2 sections; 50 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

77:1 By those sent forth to spread goodness!

77:2 Then those driving off the chaff!

77:3 And those spreading (goodness), far and wide!

77:4 Then those making a distinction!

77:5 Then those offering the Reminder,

77:6 To clear or to warn! —

77:7 Surely that which you are promised will come to pass.

77:8 So when the stars are made to disappear,

77:9 And when the heaven is rent asunder,

77:10 And when the mountains are carried away as dust,

77:11 And when the messengers are made to reach their appointed time,

77:12 To what day is the doom fixed?

77:13 To the day of Decision.

77:14 And what will make thee comprehend what the day of Decision is?

77:15 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:16 Did We not destroy the former generations?

77:17 Then We followed them up with later ones.

77:18 Thus do We deal with the guilty.

77:19 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:20 Did We not create you from ordinary water?

77:21 Then We placed it in a secure resting-place,

77:22 Till an appointed term,

77:23 So We determined — how well are We at determining!

77:24 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:25 Have We not made the earth draw to itself

77:26 The living and the dead,

77:27 And made therein lofty mountains, and given you to drink of sweet water?

77:28 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:29 Walk on to that which you called a lie.

77:30 Walk on to the shadow, having three branches,

77:31 Neither cool, nor availing against the flame.

77:32 It sends up sparks like palaces,

77:33 As if they were tawny camels.

77:34 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:35 This is the day on which they speak not,

77:36 Nor are they allowed to offer excuses.

77:37 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:38 This is the day of Decision; We have gathered you and those of yore.

77:39 So if you have a plan, plan against me (now).

77:40 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:41 Surely the dutiful are amid shades and fountains,

77:42 And fruits such as they desire.

77:43 Eat and drink pleasantly for what you did.

77:44 Thus do We reward the doers of good.

77:45 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:46 Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little; surely you are guilty.

77:47 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:48 And when it is said to them, Bow down, they bow not down.

77:49 Woe on that day to the rejectors!

77:50 In what narration after it, will they believe?
