77-What I Send / Al-Mursalat:

In God’s Name, whose Mercy is Great and Continuous:

(77:1)   I swear by the breeze gusting,

(77:2)   and by the winds howling,

(77:3)   and by the clouds rolling,

(77:4)   and by the ground opening,

(77:5)   and by the plants growing, a clear reminder of how, on the Day of Judgment, you will be returning.

(77:6)   You have no excuses, and you have received this warning.

(77:7)   What you are promised is happening:

(77:8)   When the stars light erases,

(77:9)   when the sky is torn to pieces,

(77:10) when the mountains are uprooted from their places,

(77:11) and when My messengers are gathered.

(77:12) To which day has this been appointed?

(77:13) It is the day people are sorted.

(77:14) How could you understand how terrible this day will be?

(77:15) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:16) Didn’t I destroy those before them?

(77:17) I will do the same to those after them.

(77:18) This is how I treat those who insist on disobeying Me.

(77:19) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:20) Didn’t I create you from a miserable fluid,

(77:21) and put you in a place of support and safety,

(77:22) to stay for the time of the pregnancy?

(77:23) Didn’t I shape you and form you completely? You were nothing without Me.

(77:24) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:25) Didn’t I make earth a place for keeping,

(77:26) the dead and the living,

(77:27) and put on it tall mountains and gave you fresh water for drinking?

(77:28) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:29) It will be said to them: Go to the punishment you used to disbelieve in.

(77:30) Go to the shade of three pillars of smoke billowing.

(77:31) It offers no shade or protection from the fires burning.

(77:32) It throws out sparks the size of castles flying.

(77:33) It is thick and black with yellow highlights rising.

(77:34) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:35) On that day they are silenced,

(77:36) and permission will not be given to them to offer an apology.

(77:37) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:38-39) This is the day of sorting people out. If you plan to escape, go ahead and try it. I have collected you and those who came before you individually.

(77:40) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:41) Those who feared disobeying Me will have shade and cool springs for drinking

(77:42) and fruits they love for eating.

(77:43) Eat and drink and enjoy yourselves for the good deeds you used to be doing.

(77:44) This is how I reward the good people who heed this warning.

(77:45) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:46) If you refuse to submit to Me, you should eat, drink, and enjoy the little that is left of your time. Against Me you have committed a crime. You will see…

(77:47) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:48) And when you are told to bow to Me in prayer, you refuse arrogantly.

(77:49) Those who reject this warning, on that day, will be punished severely.

(77:50) If these words didn’t sway you, there is nothing else that can be said to convince you. The problem is within you.

CHAPTER NOTES:

Verse 33: This verse literally translates “like yellow camels.” It turns out, the Arabs at the time of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, would refer to a black camel as “yellow” because it had yellow streaks and highlights. So this verse was expressed in this way because the intent is to paint a picture of thick, billowing, black clouds with yellow highlights coming out of Hell.
