Again, no! They will come to know.
٦
Have We not smoothed out the earth ˹like a bed˺,
٧
and ˹made˺ the mountains as ˹its˺ pegs,1
٨
and created you in pairs,
٩
and made your sleep for rest,
١٠
and made the night as a cover,
١١
and made the day for livelihood,
١٢
and built above you seven mighty ˹heavens˺,
١٣
and placed ˹in them˺ a shining lamp,
١٤
and sent down from rainclouds pouring water,
١٥
producing by it grain and ˹various˺ plants,
١٦
and dense orchards?
١٧
Indeed, the Day of ˹Final˺ Decision is an appointed time—
١٨
˹it is˺ the Day the Trumpet will be blown, and you will ˹all˺ come forth in crowds.
١٩
The sky will be ˹split˺ open, becoming ˹many˺ gates,
٢٠
and the mountains will be blown away, becoming ˹like˺ a mirage.
٢١
Indeed, Hell is lying in ambush
٢٢
as a home for the transgressors,
٢٣
where they will remain for ˹endless˺ ages.
٢٤
There they will not taste any coolness or drink,
٢٥
except boiling water and ˹oozing˺ pus—
٢٦
a fitting reward.
٢٧
For they never expected any reckoning,
٢٨
and totally rejected Our signs.
٢٩
And We have everything recorded precisely.
٣٠
˹So the deniers will be told,˺ “Taste ˹the punishment˺, for all you will get from Us is more torment.”
