Surah 76. Surah al Insan

Surah 76. Surah al Insan (Humankind)

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  1. Has there transpired upon humankind a time
    From (the oceans of timeless) Time
    When he was not even a thing mentioned?
  2. We did indeed create the human
    From a mixture of seminal fluid
    (and a female ovum),
    So that We may test him;
    Then We endowed him with hearing,
    And vision.
  3. We did indeed guide him to the right path
    Whether he was grateful or ungrateful.
  4. Indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers,
    Chains and yokes and a blazing Fire.
  5. Indeed, the people of moral excellence
    Will drink from a cup
    Mixed with Kafur;
  6. A spring whereof the servants of Allah drink,
    Making it gush forth with streamlets.
  7. They fulfill their vows,
    And fear the Day
    Whose malevolence will be all pervasive.
  8. And they feed, for the love of Him,
    The mendicant, and the orphan, and the prisoner.
  9. (Saying) we feed you not except to witness the omnipresence of Allah,
    We ask not a recompense for it from you,
    And no gratitude.
  10. Indeed We fear from our Rabb,
    The overwhelming Day that will make the faces contort.
  11. So Allah will protect them from the evil of that Day,
    And grant them cheerfulness and happiness.
  12. And reward them for their patience,
    The Garden—and clothes of comforting softness;
  13. Reclining therein on thrones—
    They shall feel therein neither the hot sun nor cold,
  14. And its shades (of comfort) shall be close to them,
    And its bunches (of fruit of Divine Grace) hung low.
  15. And a round of service from utensils of silver
    And goblets of glass crystals,
  16. Transparent (like glass), of silver,
    In which (the drinks) are measured as they desire.
  17. They shall be served from it a drink
    Mixed with Zanjabil,
  18. A fountain, gushing forth from Salsabil;
  19. And around them eternal youths,
    When you see them
    You reckon that they are scattered pearls.
  20. And when you look up—
    You will, once again, witness the bounties,
    And a dominion immeasurable!
  21. Upon them will be a green garment of fine silk and brocade,
    And they shall be adorned with bracelets of silver,
    And their Rabb will quench their thirst
    With a drink of utmost purity (from His presence).
  22. This is indeed your recompense,
    And your struggles have been accepted.
  23. Indeed We have sent down this Qur’an–a measured revelation,
  24. Be patient with the command of your Rabb,
    And do not follow among them
    Any wrong doer or disbeliever.
  25. And remember the Name of your Rabb,
    Morning and evening.
  26. And by nightfall, prostrate before Him,
    And glorify Him a large part of the night.
  27. Indeed, it is they who love this world,
    And leave behind them (the remembrance of) the Momentous Day.
  28. We created them,
    And strengthened their joints;
    And if We so will,
    We exchange their likes with replacements.
  29. Indeed this is a Reminder!
    Then whoever so desires,
    Let him take the right path to his Rabb.
  30. And you shall not (exercise your) will except as Allah wills;
    Indeed, Allah is the Knower, the Wise!
  31. He admits to His Grace as He wills;
    As for the transgressors,
    For them, He has prepared a painful doom.
