This wonderful soora 78 in the Quran

Torch light
It is somewhat a short soora

This is the explanation of this great soora 78

Soora 78

(In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

1. About what do these [associaters: idolaters] interrogate each other!?

[Then God – be glorified – told about the subject of their interrogation, and said:]
2. about the serious topic!

3. Concerning which they are at variance. a

4. Nay b , they will soon come to know [the truth about that c.]

5. Again nay d ; for they will soon come to know [the truth about that e.]
.................................................. .....................................

3 a The topic about which they are at variance is the ‘sending of souls to the Next Life’ and the resurrection:
some people believe in it and others deny it.

Moreover, those who believe in it vary also concerning it:
some people say: the ‘sending to the Next Life’ will be for souls not for bodies;
while others say: both souls and bodies will be resurrected altogether.

In addition, they differ about spirits:
some admit the existence of spirits,
while others deny that.

Therefore, this is the difference and disagreement of people about the ‘sending to the Next Life’.

While about the Accounting and Judgment: some say: the accounting will directly follow death, while others say: it will be on Doomsday.

4 b This is for deterring those who deny the existence of spirits; which means: It is not like what you imagine that man has no spirit.

4 c Following their death, and they will then see spirits, jinns (or genies), angels, devils and every ethereal creature.

5 d This is a deterring to those who deny the ‘sending of souls to the Next Life’.

5 e When they will go to the world of souls, by means of death, and they will then see the angels who will take their souls out of their bodies, and will see the chastisement with which We promised them, and what else they denied and disbelieved.

[Then God – be glorified – started to explain to people, the proofs of His might and ability about the ‘sending to the Next Life’: concerning His perfecting of His creatures, and that His manufactured things are intact without defect or flaw, and He said:]

(6. Have We not made the earth well-prepared for you [people]?

7. And the mountains [as] pegs [and balance for the earth?]

8. And [have We not] created you in spouses [: male and female]?

9. And made your sleep [for] rest?

10. And made the night [as] a veiling?

11. And made the day [for your] livelihood?

12. And [have We not] constructed above you seven firm [layers of ethereal heavens]?

13. And made [in the space, the sun as] a lamp blazing [with fire and heat?]

14. And sent down from the clouds profuse [rain] water?

15. That We may produce by the [rain water] the grain and the plant.

16. And gardens with dense foliage.)

(17. Surely, the Day of the 'Judgment Decision' [be] a time appointed [for judging and punishing them.]

18. On the Day [of Doom] when the 'Horn' will be blown, and you [people] will come, in crowds.

19. And the sky shall be torn and have many apertures.

20. And when mountains [: meteorites] shall be moved [: attracted by the sun], and be in swarms.)

(21. Surely, Hell is a place of ambushing [and trapping.]

22. For the rebellious, a place of refuge.

23. Therein they will tarry for ages [after ages.]

24. Neither cold [water] shall they taste in [Hell], nor any [fruit] drink.

25. But only an extremely hot water and a dark liquid.

26. A due recompense [for them] according [to their disbelief.]

27. They were uncertain about the 'Judgment.'

28. And they ever said Our signs were lies.

29. But everything [about their words and works] have We recorded by writing.

30. [The angels will then say to them:] "Now taste [the chastisement], for [even if you cry for help] we will only increase your chastisement.")

(31. Surely, those who ward off [the disobedience of God] will succeed.

32. Orchards and fruits.

33. And young maidens, of equal age, having small breasts [: i.e. small, the size of the ankle.]

34. And a cup [of wine] overflowing.

35. They shall hear in [Paradise] no idle-talk, nor lies.

36. A reward [for them] from your Lord; ample offering that will cause their satisfaction.

37. Lord of the heavens and the earth: the Most Gracious, of Whom they cannot ask [concerning the intercession.]

38. On the day when the Spirit [Gabriel] and the angels will stand forth in ranks; none shall speak [intercession] except [for the behalf of] any [monotheist] about whom is permitted by [God] Most Gracious, and the [intercessor] will speak what is right.

39. Truly that [day] is the inevitable day; therefore whoso likes [to be at rest and comfort in the Next Life], let him seek for a resort with his Lord [with repentance and righteous acts.])

[Then God – be glorified – warned the associaters, among the Arab, of the chastisement, if they do not believe; and He said:]

(40. We warn you, [associaters: idolaters], of an imminent chastisement [following after your death.]

41. The day when man [who is a believer] will look on [the charity] that his hands forwarded [to find it before him],
while the disbeliever will say [when he will see the chastisement]: "O would that I were dust."
