An Naba’
Surah 78. The Tidings, The Announcement


78:1 Concerning what are they disputing?
AAamma yatasaaloona
78:2 Concerning the Great News,
AAani alnnaba-i alAAatheemi
78:3 About which they cannot agree.
Allathee hum feehi mukhtalifoona
78:4 Verily, they shall soon (come to) know!
Kalla sayaAAlamoona
78:5 Verily, verily they shall soon (come to) know!
Thumma kalla sayaAAlamoona
78:6 Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse,
Alam najAAali al-arda mihadan
78:7 And the mountains as pegs?
Waaljibala awtadan
78:8 And (have We not) created you in pairs,
Wakhalaqnakum azwajan
78:9 And made your sleep for rest,
WajaAAalna nawmakum subatan
78:10 And made the night as a covering,
WajaAAalna allayla libasan
78:11 And made the day as a means of subsistence?
WajaAAalna alnnaharamaAAashan
78:12 And (have We not) built over you the seven firmaments,
Wabanayna fawqakum sabAAan shidadan
78:13 And placed (therein) a Light of Splendour?
WajaAAalna sirajan wahhajan
78:14 And do We not send down from the clouds water in abundance,
Waanzalna mina almuAAsiratimaan thajjajan
78:15 That We may produce therewith corn and vegetables,
Linukhrija bihi habban wanabatan
78:16 And gardens of luxurious growth?
Wajannatin alfafan
78:17 Verily the Day of Sorting out is a thing appointed,
Inna yawma alfasli kana meeqatan
78:18 The Day that the Trumpet shall be sounded, and ye shall come forth in crowds;
Yawma yunfakhu fee alssoorifata/toona afwajan
78:19 And the heavens shall be opened as if there were doors,
Wafutihati alssamao fakanatabwaban
78:20 And the mountains shall vanish, as if they were a mirage.
Wasuyyirati aljibalu fakanatsaraban
78:21 Truly Hell is as a place of ambush,
Inna jahannama kanat mirsadan
78:22 For the transgressors a place of destination:
Lilttagheena maaban
78:23 They will dwell therein for ages.
Labitheena feeha ahqaban
78:24 Nothing cool shall they taste therein, nor any drink,
La yathooqoona feehabardan wala sharaban
78:25 Save a boiling fluid and a fluid, dark, murky, intensely cold,
Illa hameeman waghassaqan
78:26 A fitting recompense (for them).
Jazaan wifaqan
78:27 For that they used not to fear any account (for their deeds),
Innahum kanoo la yarjoona hisaban
78:28 But they (impudently) treated Our Signs as false.
Wakaththaboo bi-ayatinakiththaban
78:29 And all things have We preserved on record.
Wakulla shay-in ahsaynahu kitaban
78:30 “So taste ye (the fruits of your deeds); for no increase shall We grant you, except in Punishment.”
Fathooqoo falan nazeedakum illaAAathaban
78:31 Verily for the Righteous there will be a fulfilment of (the heart’s) desires;
Inna lilmuttaqeena mafazan
78:32 Gardens enclosed, and grapevines;
Hada-iqa waaAAnaban
78:33 Companions of equal age;
WakawaAAiba atraban
78:34 And a cup full (to the brim).
Waka/san dihaqan
78:35 No vanity shall they hear therein, nor Untruth:-
La yasmaAAoona feeha laghwanwala kiththaban
78:36 Recompense from thy Lord, a gift, (amply) sufficient,
Jazaan min rabbika AAataan hisaban
78:37 (From) the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all between, (Allah) Most Gracious: None shall have power to argue with Him.
Rabbi alssamawati waal-ardiwama baynahuma alrrahmani layamlikoona minhu khitaban
78:38 The Day that the Spirit and the angels will stand forth in ranks, none shall speak except any who is permitted by (Allah) Most Gracious, and He will say what is right.
Yawma yaqoomu alrroohu waalmala-ikatusaffan la yatakallamoona illa man athinalahu alrrahmanu waqala sawaban
78:39 That Day will be the sure Reality: Therefore, whoso will, let him take a (straight) return to his Lord!
Thalika alyawmu alhaqqu famanshaa ittakhatha ila rabbihi maaban
78:40 Verily, We have warned you of a Penalty near, the Day when man will see (the deeds) which his hands have sent forth, and the Unbeliever will say, “Woe unto me! Would that I were (metre) dust!”
Inna antharnakum AAathabanqareeban yawma yanthuru almaro ma qaddamatyadahu wayaqoolu alkafiru ya laytanee kuntuturaban
