    Revealed before the Hijrah. This chapter has 49 verses.

    In the name of God,
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    52:1 By the Mount (of Revelation);
    52:2 By a Decree inscribed
    52:3 In a Scroll unfolded;
    52:4 By the much-frequented Fane;
    52:5 By the Canopy Raised High;
    52:6 And by the Ocean filled with Swell;-
    52:7 Verily, the Doom of thy Lord will indeed come to pass;-
    52:8 There is none can avert it;-
    52:9 On the Day when the firmament will be in dreadful commotion.
    52:10 And the mountains will fly hither and thither.
    52:11 Then woe that Day to those that treat (Truth) as Falsehood;-
    52:12 That play (and paddle) in shallow trifles.
    52:13 That Day shall they be thrust down to the Fire of Hell, irresistibly.
    52:14 "This:, it will be said, "Is the Fire,- which ye were wont to deny!
    52:15 "Is this then a fake, or is it ye that do not see?
    52:16 "Burn ye therein: the same is it to you whether ye bear it with patience, or not: Ye but receive the recompense of your (own) deeds."
    52:17 As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness,-
    52:18 Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them, and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire.
    52:19 (To them will be said:) "Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds."
    52:20 They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.
    52:21 And those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith,- to them shall We join their families: Nor shall We deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: (Yet) is each individual in pledge for his deeds.
    52:22 And We shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat, anything they shall desire.
    52:23 They shall there exchange, one with another, a (loving) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill.
    52:24 Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them. Youths (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.
    52:25 They will advance to each other, engaging in mutual enquiry.
    52:26 They will say: "Aforetime, we were not without fear for the sake of our people.
    52:27 "But God has been good to us, and has delivered us from the Penalty of the Scorching Wind.
    52:28 "Truly, we did call unto Him from of old: truly it is He, the Beneficent, the Merciful!"
    52:29 Therefore proclaim thou the praises (of thy Lord): for by the Grace of thy Lord, thou art no (vulgar) soothsayer, nor art thou one possessed.
    52:30 Or do they say:- "A Poet! we await for him some calamity (hatched) by Time!"
    52:31 Say thou: "Await ye!- I too will wait along with you!"
    52:32 Is it that their faculties of understanding urge them to this, or are they but a people transgressing beyond bounds?
    52:33 Or do they say, "He fabricated the (Message)"? Nay, they have no faith!
    52:34 Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth!
    52:35 Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators?
    52:36 Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief.
    52:37 Or are the Treasures of thy Lord with them, or are they the managers (of affairs)?
    52:38 Or have they a ladder, by which they can (climb up to heaven and) listen (to its secrets)? Then let (such a) listener of theirs produce a manifest proof.
    52:39 Or has He only daughters and ye have sons?
    52:40 Or is it that thou dost ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-
    52:41 Or that the Unseen in it their hands, and they write it down?
    52:42 Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy God are themselves involved in a Plot!
    52:43 Or have they a god other than God? Exalted is God far above the things they associate with Him!
    52:44 Were they to see a piece of the sky falling (on them), they would (only) say: "Clouds gathered in heaps!"
    52:45 So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs, wherein they shall (perforce) swoon (with terror),-
    52:46 The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing and no help shall be given them.
    52:47 And verily, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this: But most of them understand not.
    52:48 Now await in patience the command of thy Lord: for verily thou art in Our eyes: and celebrate the praises of thy Lord the while thou standest forth,
    52:49 And for part of the night also praise thou Him,- and at the retreat of the stars!
