Holy Quran 76


1WAS THERE NOT a time in the life of man when he was not even a mentionable thing?
2Verily We created man from a sperm yoked (to the ovum) to bring out his real substance, then gave him hearing and sight.
3We surely showed him the way that he may either be grateful or deny.
4We have prepared for unbelievers chains and collars and a blazing fire.
5Surely the devotees will drink cups flavoured with palm blossoms
6From a spring of which the votaries of God will drink and make it flow in abundance.
7Those who fulfil their vows and fear the Day whose evil shall be diffused far and wide,
8And feed the needy for the love of Him, and the orphans and the captives,
9(Saying): "We feed you for the sake of God, desiring neither recompense nor thanks.
10We fear the dismal day calamitous from our Lord."
11So God will protect them from the evil of that day, and grant them happiness and joy,
12And reward them for their perseverence Paradise and silken robes,
13Where they will recline on couches feeling neither heat of the sun nor intense cold.
14The shadows will bend over them, and low will hang the clusters of grapes.
15Passed round will be silver flagons and goblets made of glass,
16And crystal clear bottles of silver, of which they will determine the measure themselves.
17There will they drink a cup flavoured with ginger
18From a spring by the name of Ever-flowing-Salsabil.
19And boys of everlasting youth will go about attending them. Looking at them you would think that they were pearls dispersed.
20When you look around, you will see delights and great dominion.
21On their bodies will be garments of the finest green silk and brocade, and they will be adorned with bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give them a purest draught to drink.
22"This in truth is your recompense, and acceptance of your endeavours."
23We have revealed the Qur'an to you gradually;
24So wait for your Lord's command, and do not follow any sinner or disbeliever among them.
25Meditate upon the name of your Lord morning and evening;
26And bow in homage part of the night, and glorify Him far into the night.
27Surely men love what hastes away and forget the grievous day (ahead).
28We created them and fixed their bones and joints; and We could replace them when We like with others like them.
29This surely is a reminder: Therefore whosoever desires may take the way to his Lord.
30But you will not desire except as God wills. Verily He is all-knowing and all-wise.
31He admits whosoever He will to His benevolence. But for the evil-doers He has prepared a painful punishment.
