And the mountains will be powdered to dust.

So that they will become floating dust particles.

They will be served by immortal boys,

Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication.

And fruit; that they may choose.

Among Talh (banana-trees) with fruits piled one above another,
30. arabic
In shade long-extended,
31. arabic
By water flowing constantly,
32. arabic
And fruit in plenty,
33. arabic
Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off,
34. arabic
And on couches or thrones, raised high.
35. arabic
Verily, We have created them (maidens) of special creation.

And those on the Left Hand Who will be those on the Left Hand?
42. arabic
In fierce hot wind and boiling water,
43. arabic
And shadow of black smoke,
44. arabic
(That shadow) neither cool, nor (even) good,
45. arabic
Verily, before that, they indulged in luxury,
46. arabic
And were persisting in great sin (joining partners in worship along with Allâh, committing murders and other crimes, etc.)[]
47. arabic
And they used to say: "When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be resurrected?
48. arabic
"And also our forefathers?"
49. arabic
Say (O Muhammad SAW): "(Yes) verily, those of old, and those of later times.
50. arabic
"All will surely be gathered together for appointed Meeting of a known Day.
51. arabic
"Then moreover, verily, you the erring-ones, the deniers (of Resurrection)!
52. arabic
"You verily will eat of the trees of Zaqqûm.
53. arabic
"Then you will fill your bellies therewith,
54. arabic
"And drink boiling water on top of it,
55. arabic
"So you will drink (that) like thirsty camels!"
56. arabic
That will be their entertainment on the Day of Recompense!
57. arabic
We created you, then why do you believe not?
58. arabic
Then tell Me (about) the human semen that you emit.
59. arabic
Is it you who create it (i.e. make this semen into a perfect human being), or are We the Creator?
60. arabic
We have decreed death to you all, and We are not unable,
61. arabic
To transfigure you and create you in (forms) that you know not.
62. arabic
And indeed, you have already known the first form of creation (i.e. the creation of Adam), why then do you not remember or take heed?
63. arabic
Tell Me! The seed that you sow in the ground.
64. arabic
Is it you that make it grow, or are We the Grower?
65. arabic
Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry pieces, and you would be regretful (or left in wonderment).
66. arabic
(Saying): "We are indeed Mughramûn (i.e. ruined or lost the money without any profit, or punished by the loss of all that we spend for cultivation, etc.)! [See Tafsir Al-Qurtubî, Vol. 17, Page 219]
67. arabic
"Nay, but we are deprived!"
68. arabic
Tell Me! The water that you drink.
69. arabic
Is it you who cause it from the rainclouds to come down, or are We the Causer of it to come down?
70. arabic
If We willed, We verily could make it salt (and undrinkable), why then do you not give thanks (to Allâh)?
71. arabic
Tell Me! The fire which you kindle,
72. arabic
Is it you who made the tree thereof to grow, or are We the Grower?
73. arabic
We have made it a Reminder (for the Hell-fire, in the Hereafter); and an article of use for the travellers (and all the others, in this world).
74. arabic
Then glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
75. arabic
So I swear by Mawâqi (setting or the mansions, etc.) of the stars (they traverse).
76. arabic
And verily, that is indeed a great oath, if you but know.
77. arabic
That (this) is indeed an honourable recital (the Noble Qur'ân).
78. arabic
In a Book well-guarded (with Allâh in the heaven i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfûz).
79. arabic
Which (that Book with Allâh) none can touch but the purified (i.e. the angels).
80. arabic
A Revelation (this Qur'ân) from the Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists).
81. arabic
Is it such a talk (this Qur'an) that you (disbelievers) deny?
82. arabic
And instead (of thanking Allâh) for the provision He gives you, on the contrary, you deny Him (by disbelief)!
83. arabic
Then why do you not (intervene) when (the soul of a dying person) reaches the throat?
84. arabic
And you at the moment are looking on,
85. arabic
But We (i.e. Our angels who take the soul) are nearer to him than you, but you see not, [Tafsir At-Tabarî, Vol.27, Page 209]
86. arabic
Then why do you not, if you are exempt from the reckoning and recompense (punishment, etc.)
87. arabic
Bring back the soul (to its body), if you are truthful?
88. arabic
Then, if he (the dying person) be of the Muqarrabûn (those brought near to Allâh),
89. arabic
(There is for him) rest and provision, and a Garden of delights (Paradise).
90. arabic
 And if he (the dying person) be of those on the Right Hand,
91. arabic
Then there is safety and peace (from the Punishment of Allâh) for (you as you are from) those on the Right Hand.
92. arabic
But if he (the dying person) be of the denying (of the Resurrection), the erring (away from the Right Path of Islâmic Monotheism),
93. arabic
Then for him is entertainment with boiling water.
94. arabic
And burning in Hell-fire.
95. arabic
Verily, this! This is an absolute Truth with certainty.
96. arabic
So glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
