Quran, Surah 77

 

Translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali Translated by Hilali Khan
Surah 77 - The Emissaries


With the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

1. By the (Winds) sent forth one after another (to man’s profit);

2. Which then blow violently in tempestuous Gusts,

3. And scatter (things) far and wide;

4. Then separate them, one from another,

5. Then spread abroad a Message,

6. Whether of Justification or of Warning -

7. Assuredly, what ye are promised must come to pass.

8. Then when the stars become dim;

9. When the heaven is cleft asunder;

10. When the mountains are scattered (to the winds) as dust;

11. And when the apostles are (all) appointed a time (to collect) -

12. For what Day are these (portents) deferred?

13. For the Day of Sorting out.

14. And what will explain to thee what is the Day of Sorting out?

15. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

16. Did We not destroy the men of old (for their evil)?

17. So shall We make later (generations) follow them.

18. Thus do We deal with men of sin.

19. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

20. Have We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable? -

21. The which We placed in a place of rest, firmly fixed,

22. For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)?

23. For We do determine (according to need); for We are the best to determine (things).

24. Ah woe, that Day! To the Rejecters of Truth!

25. Have We not made the earth (as a place) to draw together.

26. The living and the dead,

27. And made therein mountains standing firm, lofty (in stature); and provided for you water sweet (and wholesome)?

28. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

29. (It will be said:) “Depart ye to that which ye used to reject as false!

30. “Depart ye to a Shadow (of smoke ascending) in three columns,

31. “(Which yields) no shade of coolness, and is of no use against the fierce Blaze.

32. “Indeed it throws about sparks (huge) as Forts,

33. “As if there were (a string of) yellow camels (marching swiftly).”

34. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

35. That will be a Day when they shall not be able to speak.

36. Nor will it be open to them to put forth pleas.

37. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

38. That will be a Day of Sorting out! We shall gather you together and those before (you)!

39. Now, if ye have a trick (or plot), use it against Me!

40. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

41. As to the Righteous, they shall be amidst (cool) shades and springs (of water).

42. And (they shall have) fruits - all they desire.

43. Eat ye and drink ye to your heart’s content: for that ye worked (Righteousness).

44. Thus do We certainly reward the Doers of Good.

45. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

46. (O ye unjust!) Eat ye and enjoy yourselves (but) a little while, for that ye are Sinners.

47. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

48. And when it is said to them, “Prostrate yourselves!” they do not so.

49. Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

50. Then what Message, after that, will they believe in?

 
77. Surah Al-Mursalaat (Those sent forth)

 

1. By the winds (or angels or the Messengers of Allah) sent forth one after another.

2. And by the winds that blow violently,

3. And by the winds that scatter clouds and rain;

4. And by the Verses (of the Qur'an) that separate the right from the wrong.

5. And by the angels that bring the revelations to the Messengers,

6. To cut off all excuses or to warn;

7. Surely, what you are promised must come to pass.

8. Then when the stars lose their lights;

9. And when the heaven is cleft asunder;

10. And when the mountains are blown away;

11. And when the Messengers are gathered to their time appointed;

12. For what Day are these signs postponed?

13. For the Day of sorting out (the men of Paradise from the men destined for Hell).

14. And what will explain to you what is the Day of sorting out?

15. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

16. Did We not destroy the ancients?

17. So shall We make later generations to follow them.

18. Thus do We deal with the Mujrimun (polytheists, disbelievers, sinners, criminals, etc.)!

19. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

20. Did We not create you from a worthless water (semen, etc.)?

21. Then We placed it in a place of safety (womb),

22. For a known period (determined by gestation)?

23. So We did measure, and We are the Best to measure (the things).

24. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

25. Have We not made the earth a receptacle?

26. For the living and the dead.

27. And have placed therein firm, and tall mountains; and have given you to drink sweet water?

28. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

29. (It will be said to the disbelievers): "Depart you to that which you used to deny!

30. "Depart you to a shadow (of Hell-fire smoke ascending) in three columns,

31. "Neither shading, nor of any use against the fierce flame of the Fire."

32. Verily! It (Hell) throws sparks (huge) as Al-Qasr [a fort or a Qasr (huge log of wood)],

33. As if they were Jimalatun Sufr (yellow camels or bundles of ropes)."

34. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

35. That will be a Day when they shall not speak (during some part of it),

36. And they will not be permitted to put forth any excuse.

37. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

38. That will be a Day of Decision! We have brought you and the men of old together!

39. So if you have a plot, use it against Me (Allah)!

40. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

41. Verily, the Muttaqun (pious) shall be amidst shades and springs.

42. And fruits, such as they desire.

43. "Eat and drink comfortably for that which you used to do.

44. Verily, thus We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers).

45. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

46. (O you disbelievers)! Eat and enjoy yourselves (in this worldly life) for a little while. Verily, you are the Mujrimun (polytheists, disbelievers, sinners, criminals, etc.).

47. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

48. And when it is said to them: "Bow down yourself (in prayer)!" They bow not down (offer not their prayers).

49. Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)!

50. Then in what statement after this (the Qur'an) will they believe?
