AL MURSALAT (THE SENT ONES)
(Revealed at Mecca - contains 50 verses - 2 sections)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[Mursalat 77:1] By oath of those that are sent, one after the other. (The verses of the Holy Qur’an or the angels or the winds).
[Mursalat 77:2] Then by oath of those that push with a strong gust.
[Mursalat 77:3] Then by oath of those that lift and carry.
[Mursalat 77:4] Then by those that clearly differentiate the right and wrong.
[Mursalat 77:5] And then by those that instil Remembrance into the hearts.
[Mursalat 77:6] To complete the argument or to warn.
[Mursalat 77:7] Indeed what you are promised, will surely befall.
[Mursalat 77:8] So when the lights of the stars are put out.
[Mursalat 77:9] And when the sky is split apart.
[Mursalat 77:10] And when the mountains are made into dust and blown away.
[Mursalat 77:11] And when the time of the Noble Messengers arrives.
[Mursalat 77:12] For which day were they appointed?
[Mursalat 77:13] For the Day of Decision.
[Mursalat 77:14] And what do you know, what the Day of Decision is!
[Mursalat 77:15] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:16] Did We not destroy the earlier people?
[Mursalat 77:17] We shall then send the latter after them.
[Mursalat 77:18] This is how We deal with the guilty.
[Mursalat 77:19] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:20] Did We not create you from an abject fluid?
[Mursalat 77:21] We then kept it in a safe place.
[Mursalat 77:22] For a known calculated term.
[Mursalat 77:23] We then calculated; so how excellently do We control!
[Mursalat 77:24] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:25] Did We not make the earth a storehouse?
[Mursalat 77:26] For the living and the dead among you?
[Mursalat 77:27] And We placed high mountains as anchors in it and gave you sweet water to drink.
[Mursalat 77:28] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:29] “Move towards what you used to deny!”
[Mursalat 77:30] “Move towards the shadow of the smoke having three branches.”
[Mursalat 77:31] “Which neither gives shade, nor saves from the flame.”
[Mursalat 77:32] Indeed hell throws up sparks like huge castles.
[Mursalat 77:33] Seeming like yellow camels.
[Mursalat 77:34] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:35] This is a day in which they will not be able to speak.
[Mursalat 77:36] Nor will they be given permission to present excuses.
[Mursalat 77:37] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:38] This is the Day of Decision; We have gathered you and all the earlier men.
[Mursalat 77:39] If you now have any conspiracy, carry it out on Me.
[Mursalat 77:40] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:41] Indeed the pious are in shade and springs.
[Mursalat 77:42] And among fruits whichever they may desire.
[Mursalat 77:43] “Eat and drink with pleasure, the reward of your deeds.”
[Mursalat 77:44] This is how We reward the virtuous.
[Mursalat 77:45] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:46] “Eat and enjoy for a while - indeed you are guilty.”
[Mursalat 77:47] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:48] And when it is said to them, “Offer the prayer” – they do not!
[Mursalat 77:49] Ruin is for the deniers on that day!
[Mursalat 77:50] So after this, in what matter will they believe?
