عَمَّ يَتَسَآءَلُونَ عَنِ ٱلنَّبَإِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ ٱلَّذِى هُمْ فِيهِ مُخْتَلِفُونَ كَلَّا سَيَعْلَمُونَ ثُمَّ كَلَّا سَيَعْلَمُونَ أَلَمْ نَجْعَلِ ٱلْأَرْضَ مِهَٰدًا وَٱلْجِبَالَ أَوْتَادًا وَخَلَقْنَٰكُمْ أَزْوَٰجًا وَجَعَلْنَا نَوْمَكُمْ سُبَاتًا وَجَعَلْنَا ٱلَّيْلَ لِبَاسًا وَجَعَلْنَا ٱلنَّهَارَ مَعَاشًا وَبَنَيْنَا فَوْقَكُمْ سَبْعًا شِدَادًا وَجَعَلْنَا سِرَاجًا وَهَّاجًا وَأَنزَلْنَا مِنَ ٱلْمُعْصِرَٰتِ مَآءً ثَجَّاجًا لِّنُخْرِجَ بِهِۦ حَبًّا وَنَبَاتًا وَجَنَّٰتٍ أَلْفَافًا إِنَّ يَوْمَ ٱلْفَصْلِ كَانَ مِيقَٰتًا يَوْمَ يُنفَخُ فِى ٱلصُّورِ فَتَأْتُونَ أَفْوَاجًا وَفُتِحَتِ ٱلسَّمَآءُ فَكَانَتْ أَبْوَٰبًا وَسُيِّرَتِ ٱلْجِبَالُ فَكَانَتْ سَرَابًا إِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ كَانَتْ مِرْصَادًا لِّلطَّٰغِينَ مَـَٔابًا لَّٰبِثِينَ فِيهَآ أَحْقَابًا لَّا يَذُوقُونَ فِيهَا بَرْدًا وَلَا شَرَابًا إِلَّا حَمِيمًا وَغَسَّاقًا جَزَآءً وِفَاقًا إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا۟ لَا يَرْجُونَ حِسَابًا وَكَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا كِذَّابًا وَكُلَّ شَىْءٍ أَحْصَيْنَٰهُ كِتَٰبًا فَذُوقُوا۟ فَلَن نَّزِيدَكُمْ إِلَّا عَذَابًا
