77 THE LOOSED ONES (1 – 24)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

By the loosed ones successively storming tempestuously by the scatterers scattering and the severally severing and those hurling a reminder 5excusing or warning, surely that which you are promised is about to fall!

When the stars shall be extinguished, when heaven shall be split 10when the mountains shall be scattered and when the Messengers’ time is set to what day shall they be delayed? To the Day of Decision. And what shall teach thee what is the Day of Decision? 15Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!

20Did We not destroy the ancients, and then follow them with the later folk? So We serve the sinners. Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!

Did We not create you of a mean water, that We laid within a sure lodging till a known term decreed? We determined; excellent determiners are We. Woe that day unto those who cry it lies!
