Surah 38 - Sad SAD 038.051-038.088
038.051 Therein will they recline (at ease): Therein can they call (at pleasure) for fruit in abundance, and (delicious) drink;
038.052 And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances, (companions) of equal age.
038.053 Such is the Promise made, to you for the Day of Account!
038.054 Truly such will be Our Bounty (to you); it will never fail;-
038.055 Yea, such! but - for the wrong-doers will be an evil place of (Final) Return!-
038.056 Hell!- they will burn therein, - an evil bed (indeed, to lie on)!-
038.057 Yea, such! - then shall they taste it,- a boiling fluid, and a fluid dark, murky, intensely cold!-
038.058 And other Penalties of a similar kind, to match them!
038.059 Here is a troop rushing headlong with you! No welcome for them! truly, they shall burn in the Fire!
038.060 (The followers shall cry to the misleaders:) "Nay, ye (too)! No welcome for you! It is ye who have brought this upon us! Now evil is (this) place to stay in!"
038.061 They will say: "Our Lord! whoever brought this upon us,- Add to him a double Penalty in the Fire!"
038.062 And they will say: "What has happened to us that we see not men whom we used to number among the bad ones?
038.063 "Did we treat them (as such) in ridicule, or have (our) eyes failed to perceive them?"
038.064 Truly that is just and fitting,- the mutual recriminations of the People of the Fire!
038.065 Say: "Truly am I a Warner: no god is there but the one God, Supreme and Irresistible,-
038.066 "The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all between,- Exalted in Might, able to enforce His Will, forgiving again and again."
038.067 Say: "That is a Message Supreme (above all),-
038.068 "From which ye do turn away!
038.069 "No knowledge have I of the Chiefs on high, when they discuss (matters) among themselves.
038.070 'Only this has been revealed to me: that I am to give warning plainly and publicly."
038.071 Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man from clay:
038.072 "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him."
038.073 So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together:
038.074 Not so Iblis: he was haughty, and became one of those who reject Faith.
038.075 (God) said: "O Iblis! What prevents thee from prostrating thyself to one whom I have created with my hands? Art thou haughty? Or art thou one of the high (and mighty) ones?"
038.076 (Iblis) said: "I am better than he: thou createdst me from fire, and him thou createdst from clay."
038.077 (God) said: "Then get thee out from here: for thou art rejected, accursed.
038.078 "And My curse shall be on thee till the Day of Judgment."
038.079 (Iblis) said: "O my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are raised."
038.080 (God) said: "Respite then is granted thee-
038.081 "Till the Day of the Time Appointed."
038.082 (Iblis) said: "Then, by Thy power, I will put them all in the wrong,-
038.083 "Except Thy Servants amongst them, sincere and purified (by Thy Grace)."
038.084 (God) said: "Then it is just and fitting- and I say what is just and fitting-
038.085 "That I will certainly fill Hell with thee and those that follow thee,- every one."
038.086 Say: "No reward do I ask of you for this (Qur'an), nor am I a pretender.
038.087 "This is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds.
038.088 "And ye shall certainly know the truth of it (all) after a while."
