M. H. Shakir, The Holy Quran; Arabic Text and English Translation; Foot-notes by M. H. Shakir (1974)

32. Surely it sends up sparks like palaces,

33. As if they were tawny camels.

34. Woe on that day to the rejecters.

35. This is the day on which they shall not speak,

36. And permission shall not be given to them so that they should offer excuses.

37. Woe on that day to the rejecters.

38. This is the day of decision: We have gathered you and those of yore.

39. So if you have a plan, plan against Me (now).

40. Woe on that day to the rejecters.

Section 2

41. Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be amid shades and fountains,

42. And fruits such as they desire.

43. Eat and drink pleasantly because of what you did.

44. Surely thus do We reward the doers of good.

45. Woe on that day to the rejecters.

46. Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little; surely you are guilty.

47. Woe on that day to the rejecters.

48. And when it is said to them: Bow down, they do not bow down.*

49. Woe on that day to the rejecters.

50. In what announcement, then, after it, will they believe?

* When it is said to them to pray Namaz, they do not say their Namaz.
