[76.1] There surely came
over man a period of time when he was a thing not worth
[76.2] Surely We have created man from a small life-germ
uniting (itself): We mean to try him, so We have made him
[76.3] Surely We have shown him the way: he may be
thankful or unthankful.
[76.4] Surely We have prepared for the unbelievers chains
and shackles and a burning fire.
[76.5] Surely the righteous shall drink of a cup the
admixture of which is camphor
[76.6] A fountain from which the servants of Allah shall
drink; they make it to flow a (goodly) flowing forth.
[76.7] They fulfill vows and fear a day the evil of which
shall be spreading far and wide.
[76.8] And they give food out of love for Him to the poor
and the orphan and the captive:
[76.9] We only feed you for Allah's sake; we desire from
you neither reward nor thanks:
[76.10] Surely we fear from our Lord a stern, distressful
[76.11] Therefore Allah win guard them from the evil of
that day and cause them to meet with ease and happiness;
[76.12] And reward them, because they were patient, with
garden and silk,
[76.13] Reclining therein on raised couches, they shall
find therein neither (the severe heat of) the sun nor intense
[76.14] And close down upon them (shall be) its shadows,
and its fruits shall be made near (to them), being easy to

measured them according to a measure.
[76.17] And they shall be made to drink therein a cup the
admixture of which shall be ginger,
[76.18] (Of) a fountain therein which is named Salsabil.
[76.19] And round about them shall go youths never

[76.20] And when you see there, you shall see blessings
and a great kingdom.
[76.21] Upon them shall be garments of fine green silk
and thick silk interwoven with gold, and they shall be adorned

striving shall be recompensed.
[76.23] Surely We Ourselves have revealed the Quran to
