So let whoever wills be mindful of it.
١٣
It is ˹written˺ on pages held in honour—
١٤
highly esteemed, purified—
١٥
by the hands of angel-scribes,
١٦
honourable and virtuous.
١٧
Condemned are ˹disbelieving˺ humans! How ungrateful they are ˹to Allah˺!
١٨
From what substance did He create them?
١٩
He created them from a sperm-drop, and ordained their development.
٢٠
Then He makes the way easy for them,1
٢١
then causes them to die and be buried.1
٢٢
Then when He wills, He will resurrect them.
٢٣
But no! They have failed to comply with what He ordered.
٢٤
Let people then consider their food:
٢٥
how We pour down rain in abundance
٢٦
and meticulously split the earth open ˹for sprouts˺,
٢٧
causing grain to grow in it,
٢٨
as well as grapes and greens,
٢٩
and olives and palm trees,
٣٠
and dense orchards,
٣١
and fruit and fodder—
٣٢
all as ˹a means of˺ sustenance for you and your animals.
٣٣
Then, when the Deafening Blast1 comes to pass—
٣٤
on that Day every person will flee from their own siblings,
٣٥
and ˹even˺ their mother and father,
٣٦
and ˹even˺ their spouse and children.
٣٧
For then everyone will have enough concern of their own.
٣٨
On that Day ˹some˺ faces will be bright,
٣٩
laughing and rejoicing,
٤٠
while ˹other˺ faces will be dusty,
٤١
cast in gloom—
٤٢
those are the disbelievers, the ˹wicked˺ sinners.
