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?
