Chapter 78:
Al-Naba' — The Announcement:

Revealed at Makkah: 2 sections; 40 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


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

78:1 Of what do they ask one another?

78:2 Of the tremendous announcement

78:3 About which they differ.

78:4 Nay, they will soon know;

78:5 Nay, again, they will soon know.

78:6 Have We not made the earth an expanse

78:7 And the mountains as pegs?

78:8 And We have created you in pairs,

78:9 And made your sleep for rest,

78:10 And made the night a covering,

78:11 And made the day for seeking livelihood.

78:12 And We have made above you seven strong (bodies),

78:13 And made a shining lamp,

78:14 And We send down from the clouds water pouring forth in abundance,

78:15 That We may bring forth thereby grain and herbs,

78:16 And luxuriant gardens.

78:17 Surely the day of Decision is appointed —

78:18 The day when the trumpet is blown, so you come forth in hosts,

78:19 And the heaven is opened so it becomes as doors,

78:20 And the mountains are moved off, so they remain a semblance.

78:21 Surely hell lies in wait,

78:22 A resort for the inordinate,

78:23 Living therein for long years.

78:24 They taste not therein coolness nor drink,

78:25 But boiling and intensely cold water,

78:26 Requital corresponding.

78:27 Surely they feared not the reckoning,

78:28 And rejected Our messages, giving the lie (thereto).

78:29 And We have recorded everything in a book,

78:30 So taste, for We shall add to you naught but chastisement.

78:31 Surely for those who keep their duty is achievement,

78:32 Gardens and vineyards,

78:33 And youthful (companions), equals in age,

78:34 And a pure cup.

78:35 They hear not therein vain words, nor lying —

78:36 A reward from thy Lord, a gift sufficient;

78:37 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, the Beneficent, they are not able to address Him.

78:38 The day when the Spirit and the angels stand in ranks; none shall speak except he whom the Beneficent permits and he speaks aright.

78:39 That is the True Day, so whoever desires may take refuge with his Lord.

78:40 Truly We warn you of a chastisement near at hand— the day when man will see what his hands have sent before, and the disbeliever will say: O would that I were dust!
