78.0 In The Name Of YHWH: The Almighty, The Merciful.
78:1 What exactly is left to question among them?
78:2 The Good News or the Horrific News?
78:3 Which is it wherein they disagree?
78:4 Nay. Deep down they know and will see!
78:5 Then indeed
they will come to know for certain!
78:6 Yea and have We not made the Earth a resting place
78:7 and the mountains firm stakes with bottoms like pegs
78:8 and Created you in heterosexual pairs
78:9 and made your sleep restful
78:10 and made the night like a garment
78:11 and the day for Goodly living.
78:12 And did We build above you seven great ones
78:13 and set therein a blazing light
78:14 and sent down cascading rains from clouds
78:15 bringing forth grains and plants
78:16 in luxuriant gardens?
78:17 Yea and the Day of Decision is an appointed time.
78:18 The Day the trumpet is blown and you come in units
78:19 and the sky is opened as gates
78:20 and mountains are set in motion looking as if a mirage.
78:21 Yea it is then that Hell is lying in wait!
78:22 That is the Journeys’ End for the defiant and the fools.
78:23 They will forever long for a final death
78:24 never experiencing shade nor satisfying drink
78:25 only scalding Punishment and liquids of filth
78:26 will be their recompense.
78:27 For they yearned for no accounting
78:28 and they denied Our Proofs defiantly
78:29 but We have their ledgers fully detailed
78:30 so taste it!
And We will increase you in nothing except Punishment.
78:31 But for those of Wise Fear is a place of long sought security
78:32 with fertile gardens and grapevines
78:33 and splendid companions well matched
78:34 your cups overflowing.
78:35 Hearing therein neither vain speech nor lies.
78:36 Yea it is the Reward From thy Lord
and a Reckoning.
78:37 Lord of the Heavens and the Earth and Everything in them.
against Whom none can argue.
78:38 The Day the spirit Gabriel and the angels stand in ranks
until The Almighty Grants Permission to whom He Wills
to say what is True.
78:39 That is the Day of Unending Truth
and whoever wills will be pleased to see their Lord at their Journeys’ End.
78:40 Hence We warn you of this Punishment drawing near
the Day mankind will look upon what their hands have sent before them
and the fools will say:
If only I were dust!
