Holy Quran 85


1I CALL TO witness the sky (bespangled) with the signs of the Zodiac,
2And the promised day,
3And the witness and the witnessed,
4 That accursed are the men of the trench
5Full of fire fed by faggots,
6As they sat around it
7Witnessing what they had done to the believers!
8They had no other reason for hating them except that they believed in God the mighty, worthy of praise,
9Whose kingdom spreads over the heavens and the earth. God is witness over everything.
10Surely for those who persecute believers, men and women, and do not repent afterwards, is the punishment of Hell, and the punishment of burning.
11Surely for those who believe and do the right are gardens with rivers running by. That is the greatest success.
12The grip of your Lord is severe indeed!
13It is verily He who initiates and repeats.
14He is the forgiving and the loving,
15The Lord of the glorious Throne,
16Who does as He pleases.
17Has the story of the hordes
18Of Pharaoh and Thamud come to you?
19Yet the infidels persist in denial.
20But God surrounds them from all sides.
21This is indeed the glorious Qur'an
