Thus do We narrate some account to you of what has gone before, and We have truly given you a Reminder of Our own.
Whoever turns away from it will surely carry a burden on the Day of Judgement,
And will live for ever under it. How evil the burden they will carry on the Day of Doom!
The day the trumpet blast is sounded We shall raise the sinners blind,
Whispering to one another: "You have tarried but ten days."
We know well what they will say when the most upright among them will say: "You did not tarry more than a day."
They will ask you about the mountains. Tell them: "My Lord will uproot them from the base,
And turn them into a level plain,
Over which you will see no curves or elevations.
That day they will follow the summoner from whom there will be no receding; and their voices will be hushed before Ar-Rahman, and you will not hear a sound but faint shuffling.
On that day no intercession will matter other than his whom Ar-Rahman grants permission and accepts.
He knows what is before them and hidden from them, but they cannot grasp it with their knowledge.
All heads will be bowed before the Living, the Eternal; and whosoever bears a load of iniquity will be full of despair.
But he who has done good things and believes, will have no fear of either being wronged or deprived.
That is why We have sent it down as an eloquent Qur'an, and explained in different ways the intimidations through it that they may haply take heed, or perhaps it may lead them to contemplate.
