085.001 By the sky, (displaying) the Zodiacal Signs;
085.002 By the promised Day (of Judgment);
085.003 By one that witnesses, and the subject of the witness;-
085.004 Woe to the makers of the pit (of fire),
085.005 Fire supplied (abundantly) with fuel:
085.006 Behold! they sat over against the (fire),
085.007 And they witnessed (all) that they were doing against the Believers.

Exalted in Power, Worthy of all Praise!-
085.009 Him to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And God
is Witness to all things.
085.010 Those who persecute (or draw into temptation) the Believers, men and
women, and do not turn in repentance, will have the Penalty of Hell: They will
the Penalty of the Burning Fire.
085.011 For those who believe and do righteous deeds, will be Gardens; beneath
which rivers flow: That is the great Salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires),
085.012 Truly strong is the Grip (and Power) of thy Lord.
085.013 It is He Who creates from the very beginning, and He can restore (life).
085.014 And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Full of Loving-Kindness,
085.015 Lord of the Throne of Glory,
085.016 Doer (without let) of all that He intends.
085.017 Has the story reached thee, of the forces-
085.018 Of Pharaoh and the Thamud?
085.019 And yet the Unbelievers (persist) in rejecting (the Truth)!
085.020 But God doth encompass them from behind!
085.021 Nay, this is a Glorious Qur'an,
085.022 (Inscribed) in a Tablet Preserved!
