AYAT TRANSLATION
1 هَلْ أَتَىٰ عَلَى الْإِنسَانِ حِينٌ مِّنَ الدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُن شَيْئًا مَّذْكُورًا
Indeed there has been a time for man, when even his name did not exist anywhere.
2 إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ نَّبْتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا
Indeed We have created man from mixed semen; in order to test him – We therefore made him hearing, knowing.
3 إِنَّا هَدَيْنَاهُ السَّبِيلَ إِمَّا شَاكِرًا وَإِمَّا كَفُورًا
We have indeed shown him the way – whether he is grateful or ingrate.
4 إِنَّا أَعْتَدْنَا لِلْكَافِرِينَ سَلَاسِلَ وَأَغْلَالًا وَسَعِيرًا
We have indeed kept prepared chains, and shackles and a blazing fire for the disbelievers.
5 إِنَّ الْأَبْرَارَ يَشْرَبُونَ مِن كَأْسٍ كَانَ مِزَاجُهَا كَافُورًا
Indeed the virtuous will drink from a cup, containing a mixture of Kafoor.
6 عَيْنًا يَشْرَبُ بِهَا عِبَادُ اللَّهِ يُفَجِّرُونَهَا تَفْجِيرًا
The Kafoor is a spring, from which the chosen bondmen of Allah will drink, causing it to flow wherever they wish inside their palaces.
7 يُوفُونَ بِالنَّذْرِ وَيَخَافُونَ يَوْمًا كَانَ شَرُّهُ مُسْتَطِيرًا
They fulfil their pledges, and fear a day the evil of which is widespread.
8 وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَىٰ حُبِّهِ مِسْكِينًا وَيَتِيمًا وَأَسِيرًا
And out of His love, they give food to the needy, the orphan and the prisoner.
9 إِنَّمَا نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ لَا نُرِيدُ مِنكُمْ جَزَاءً وَلَا شُكُورًا
They say to them, “We give you food, only for the sake of Allah – we do not seek any reward or thanks from you.”
10 إِنَّا نَخَافُ مِن رَّبِّنَا يَوْمًا عَبُوسًا قَمْطَرِيرًا
“Indeed we fear from our Lord a day which is extremely bitter, most severe.”
11 فَوَقَاهُمُ اللَّهُ شَرَّ ذَٰلِكَ الْيَوْمِ وَلَقَّاهُمْ نَضْرَةً وَسُرُورًا
So Allah saved them from the evil of that day, and gave them freshness and joy.
12 وَجَزَاهُم بِمَا صَبَرُوا جَنَّةً وَحَرِيرًا
And gave them Paradise and silk clothes, as a reward for their patience.
13 مُّتَّكِئِينَ فِيهَا عَلَى الْأَرَائِكِ ۖ لَا يَرَوْنَ فِيهَا شَمْسًا وَلَا زَمْهَرِيرًا
Reclining in it, upon thrones; they will not see the hot sunshine in it, nor the bitter cold.
14 وَدَانِيَةً عَلَيْهِمْ ظِلَالُهَا وَذُلِّلَتْ قُطُوفُهَا تَذْلِيلًا
And its shade will cover them, and its fruit clusters brought down low for them.
15 وَيُطَافُ عَلَيْهِم بِآنِيَةٍ مِّن فِضَّةٍ وَأَكْوَابٍ كَانَتْ قَوَارِيرَا
Rounds of silver cups and silver beakers, looking like glass, will be presented upon them.
16 قَوَارِيرَ مِن فِضَّةٍ قَدَّرُوهَا تَقْدِيرًا
Glass made from silver, which the servers have filled up to the measure.
17 وَيُسْقَوْنَ فِيهَا كَأْسًا كَانَ مِزَاجُهَا زَنجَبِيلًا
And in Paradise they will be given to drink cups, filled with a mixture of ginger.
18 عَيْنًا فِيهَا تُسَمَّىٰ سَلْسَبِيلًا
Which is a spring in Paradise called Salsabeel.
19 ۞ وَيَطُوفُ عَلَيْهِمْ وِلْدَانٌ مُّخَلَّدُونَ إِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ حَسِبْتَهُمْ لُؤْلُؤًا مَّنثُورًا
Immortal youths shall surround them, waiting upon them; when you see them, you would think they are scattered pearls.
20 وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ ثَمَّ رَأَيْتَ نَعِيمًا وَمُلْكًا كَبِيرًا
And when you look towards it, you will see serenity and a great kingdom.
21 عَالِيَهُمْ ثِيَابُ سُندُسٍ خُضْرٌ وَإِسْتَبْرَقٌ ۖ وَحُلُّوا أَسَاوِرَ مِن فِضَّةٍ وَسَقَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ شَرَابًا طَهُورًا
In it they adorn clothes of fine green silk and gold embroidery; and they are given silver bracelets to wear; and their Lord gave them pure wine to drink.
22 إِنَّ هَٰذَا كَانَ لَكُمْ جَزَاءً وَكَانَ سَعْيُكُم مَّشْكُورًا
It will be said to them, “This is your reward – indeed your efforts have been appreciated.”
23 إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْقُرْآنَ تَنزِيلًا
Indeed We have sent down the Qur’an upon you, in stages.
24 فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلَا تُطِعْ مِنْهُمْ آثِمًا أَوْ كَفُورًا
Therefore stay patient upon your Lord’s command, and do not listen to any of the sinners or ingrates among them.
25 وَاذْكُرِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا
And remember the name of your Lord morning and evening.
26 وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَاسْجُدْ لَهُ وَسَبِّحْهُ لَيْلًا طَوِيلًا
And prostrate for Him in a part of the night, and proclaim His purity into the long night.
27 إِنَّ هَٰؤُلَاءِ يُحِبُّونَ الْعَاجِلَةَ وَيَذَرُونَ وَرَاءَهُمْ يَوْمًا ثَقِيلًا
Indeed these people love what they have, the fleeting one, and have forsaken the immensely important day behind them.
28 نَّحْنُ خَلَقْنَاهُمْ وَشَدَدْنَا أَسْرَهُمْ ۖ وَإِذَا شِئْنَا بَدَّلْنَا أَمْثَالَهُمْ تَبْدِيلًا
It is We Who created them, and strengthened their skeleton; and We can replace them with others like them, whenever We will.
29 إِنَّ هَٰذِهِ تَذْكِرَةٌ ۖ فَمَن شَاءَ اتَّخَذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبِيلًا
This is indeed an advice; so whoever wishes may take the path towards his Lord.
30 وَمَا تَشَاءُونَ إِلَّا أَن يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا
And what will you wish, except if Allah wills; indeed Allah is All Knowing, Wise.
31 يُدْخِلُ مَن يَشَاءُ فِي رَحْمَتِهِ ۚ وَالظَّالِمِينَ أَعَدَّ لَهُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا
He admits into His mercy, whomever He wills; and for the unjust He has kept prepared a painful punishment.
