the great event,
which they differ?

Nay! they shall soon know.
We not made the earth an even expanse?
the mountains as projections (thereon)?
We created you in pairs,

he whom the Beneficent God permits and who speaks the right thing.
is the sure day, so whoever desires may take refuge with his Lord.
Surely We have warned you of a chastisement near at hand: the day when man shall see what
his two hands have sent before, and the unbeliever shall say: O! would that I were dust!
