76-Humanity / Al-Insan:

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

(76:1)   Wasn’t there a time when you didn’t exist?

(76:2)   I created you to test you and made you from fluids mixed. Then I gave you eyes for seeing and ears for hearing.

(76:3)   I guided you to the truth. Then you are either thankful and believing or ungrateful and turn away rejecting this warning.

(76:4)   I have prepared for those who reject My warning chains, cuffs, and fire burning.

(76:5)   The good people will drink from a cup of wine mixed with the refreshing drink from a spring called Kafoor.

(76:6)   Those who worshiped Me sincerely, will drink from the spring directly and take it anywhere they want to go freely.

(76:7)   They used to fulfill their promises till completion and feared the day which brings wide spread devastation. 

(76:8)   They used to feed people out of love: the poor, the orphan, and the captive.

(76:9)   They used to say, “We are feeding you for God’s pleasure. We aren’t after payment or thanks for this offer. 

(76:10) We are afraid of a day that will make faces grimace from terror.”

(76:11) Because of their actions, from the horror of that day, I will give them protection. Their faces will be bright and happy, their hearts filled with satisfaction.

(76:12) They will be rewarded for their patience with Heaven to live in and silk clothes for wearing.

(76:13) They will be on their canopy beds reclining. They will never again feel the burn of the sun or the bitter cold biting.

(76:14) The trees are close to them, and the fruits are made easy for picking.

(76:15) They will be brought silver plates of food and cups of crystal.

(76:16) The best crystal filled with good measure:

(76:17) Wine mixed with a drink, comforting like warm ginger;

(76:18) coming from a spring in Heaven called Salsabeel.

(76:19) They will be served by young children looking like scattered pearls running to serve them.

(76:20) Everywhere they look there are amazing and beautiful things, all part of their huge kingdom.

(76:21) They will have on fine and thick rich green silk, bracelets of silver, and their drinks are pure and non-intoxicating.

(76:22) It will be said to them, “This is your reward for what you did. I thank you for all you were doing.”

(76:23) Oh Muhammad, I revealed this Quran to you over time slowly.

(76:24) So take the abuse and rejection you are getting patiently. My judgment is coming. Do not listen to the sinful or the ungrateful,

(76:25) and remember Me by praying each day at the beginning and the ending.

(76:26) Do your night prayers and spend some time in the night glorifying and worshiping.

(76:27) These people love to enjoy their life now and forget to spend time for the Day of Judgment preparing.

(76:28) I created them in the first place, made them strong, and if I wanted to, I could replace them easily.

(76:29) This is just a reminder from Me. So whoever wants to, should follow the straight path to be with Me.

(76:30) But they will not find the yearning in their heart for guidance, until I decide to bless them with that craving, which I give to those who are humble before Me. I am wise and know everything completely.

(76:31) I only allow whom I want to enter My mercy, and those who choose not to submit to Me will be punished severely.
