In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
85:1 By the heaven full of stars!
85:2 And the Promised day!
85:3 And the bearer of witness and that to which witness is borne!
85:4 Destruction overtake the companions of the trench! —
85:5 The fire fed with fuel —
85:6 When they sit by it,
85:7 And they are witnesses of what they do with the believers.
85:8 And they punished them for naught but that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Praised,
85:9 Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Witness of all things.
85:10 Those who persecute believing men and believing women, then repent not, theirs is the chastisement of hell, and theirs the chastisement of burning.
85:11 Those who believe and do good, theirs are Gardens wherein flow rivers. That is the great achievement.
85:12 Surely the grip of thy Lord is severe.
85:13 Surely He it is Who creates first and reproduces;
85:14 And He is the Forgiving, the Loving,
85:15 Lord of the Throne of Power, the Glorious,
85:16 Doer of what He intends.
85:17 Has not there come to thee the story of the hosts,
85:18 Of Pharaoh and Thamud?
85:19 Nay, those who disbelieve give the lie —
85:20 And Allah encompasses them on all sides.
85:21 Nay, it is a glorious Quran,
85:22 In a guarded tablet.
