Its canopy, and He hath
Given it order and perfection.

Endow with darkness,
And its splendour doth He
Bring out (with light).

Therefrom its moisture
And its pasture;

To you and your cattle.

Placed in full view
For (all) to see,—

Transgressed all bounds,

38. Waathara alhayata alddunya

The life of this world,

40. Waama man khafa maqama rabbihi wanaha alnnafsa AAani alhawa

40. And for such as had
Entertained the fear
Of standing before
Their Lord's (tribunal)
And had restrained
(Their) soul from lower Desires,

41. Fa-inna aljannata hiya alma/wa

41. Their Abode will be
The Garden.

42. Yas-aloonaka AAani alssaAAati ayyana mursaha

About the Hour,—"When
Will be its appointed time?"

With the declaration thereof?

The Limit fixed therefor.

For such as fear it.

46. The Day they see it,
(It will be) as if they
Had tarried but a single
Evening, or (at most till)
The following morn!
