English: The Man
|Has there come on man a while of time when he was a thing unremembered?
Sura 76:2 comments: Islam and Science: Errors in the Qur'an and Arab Education: 2. Biology Mistakes.
|We created man of a sperm-drop, a mingling, and We made him hearing, seeing.
|Surely We guided him upon the way whether he be thankful or unthankful.
|Surely We have prepared for the unbelievers chains, fetters, and a Blaze.
|Surely the pious shall drink of a cup whose mixture is camphor,
|a fountain whereat drink the servants of God, making it to gush forth plenteously.
|They fulfil their vows, and fear a day whose evil is upon the wing;
|they give food, for the love of Him, to the needy, the orphan, the captive:
|'We feed you only for the Face of God; we desire no recompense from you, no thankfulness;
|for we fear from our Lord a frowning day, inauspicious.
|So God has guarded them from the evil of that day, and has procured them radiancy and gladness,
|and recompensed them for their patience with a Garden, and silk;
|therein they shall recline upon couches, therein they shall see neither sun nor bitter cold;
|near them shall be its shades, and its clusters hung meekly down,
|and there shall be passed around them vessels of silver, and goblets of crystal,
|crystal of silver that they have measured -- very exactly.
|And therein they shall be given to drink a cup whose mixture is ginger,
|therein a fountain whose name is called Salsabil.
|Immortal youths shall go about them; when thou seest them, thou supposest them scattered pearls,
|when thou seest them then thou seest bliss and a great kingdom.
|Upon them shall be green garments of silk and brocade; they are adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord shall give them to drink a pure draught.
|Behold, this is a recompense for you, and your striving is thanked.'
|Surely We have sent down the Koran on thee, a sending down;
|so be thou patient under the judgment of thy Lord, and obey not one of them, sinner or unbeliever.
|And remember the Name of thy Lord at dawn and in the evening
|and part of the night; bow down before Him and magnify Him through the long night.
|Surely these men love the hasty world, and leave be behind them a heavy day.
|We created them, and We strengthened their joints; and, when We will, We shall exchange their likes.
|Surely this is a Reminder; so he who will, takes unto his Lord a way.
|But you will not unless God wills; surely God is ever All-knowing, All-wise.
|For He admits into His mercy whomsoever He will; as for the evildoers, He has prepared for them a painful chastisement.
