36 YA SIN (33 – 65)

And a sign for them is the dead land, that We quickened and brought forth from it grain, whereof they eat; and We made therein gardens of palms and vines, and therein We caused fountains to gush forth, 35that they might eat of its fruits and their hands’ labour. What, will they not be thankful? Glory be to Him, who created all the pairs of what the earth produces, and of themselves, and of what they know not. And a sign for them is the night; We strip it of the day and lo, they are in darkness. And the sun—it runs to a fixed resting-place; that is the ordaining of the All-mighty, the All-knowing. And the moon—We have determined it by stations, till it returns like an aged palm-bough. 40It behoves not the sun to overtake the moon, neither does the night outstrip the day, each swimming in a sky. And a sign for them is that We carried their seed in the laden ship, and We have created for them the like of it whereon they ride; and if We will, We drown them, then none have they to cry to, neither are they delivered, save as a mercy from Us, and enjoyment for a while.

45And when it is said to them, ‘Fear what is before you and what is behind you; haply you will find mercy’— yet never any sign of the signs of their Lord comes to them, but they are turning away from it. And when it is said to them, ‘Expend of that God has provided you,’ the unbelievers say to the believers, ‘What, shall we feed such a one whom, if God willed, He would feed? You are only in manifest error!’

They also say, ‘When shall this promise come to pass, if you speak truly?’ They are awaiting only for one Cry to seize them while they are yet disputing, 50then they will not be able to make any testament, nor will they return to their people. And the Trumpet shall be blown; then behold, they are sliding down from their tombs unto their Lord. They say, ‘Alas for us! Who roused us out of our sleeping-place? This is what the All-merciful promised, and the Envoys spoke truly.’ ‘It was only one Cry; then behold, they are all arraigned before Us. So today no soul shall be wronged anything, and you shall not be recompensed, except according to what you have been doing. 55See, the inhabitants of Paradise today are busy in their rejoicing, they and their spouses, reclining upon couches in the shade; therein they have fruits, and they have all that they call for. ‘Peace!—such is the greeting, from a Lord All-compassionate. ‘Now keep yourselves apart, you sinners, upon this day! 60Made I not covenant with you, Children of Adam, that you should not serve Satan—surely he is a manifest foe to you— and that you should serve Me? This is a straight path. He led astray many a throng of you; did you not understand? This is Gehenna, then, the same that you were promised; roast well in it today, for that you were unbelievers!’ 65Today We set a seal on their mouths, and their hands speak to Us, and their feet bear witness as to what they have been earning.
