إِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ كَانَتْ مِرْصَادًا

Lo! hell lurketh in ambush,

22

لِّلطَّاغِينَ مَآبًا

A home for the rebellious.

23

لَّابِثِينَ فِيهَا أَحْقَابًا

They will abide therein for ages.

24

لَّا يَذُوقُونَ فِيهَا بَرْدًا وَلَا شَرَابًا

Therein taste they neither coolness nor (any) drink

25

إِلَّا حَمِيمًا وَغَسَّاقًا

Save boiling water and a paralysing cold:

26

جَزَاءً وِفَاقًا

Reward proportioned (to their evil deeds).

27

إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا لَا يَرْجُونَ حِسَابًا

For lo! they looked not for a reckoning;

28

وَكَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا كِذَّابًا

They called Our revelations false with strong denial.

29

وَكُلَّ شَيْءٍ أَحْصَيْنَاهُ كِتَابًا

Everything have We recorded in a Book.

30

فَذُوقُوا فَلَن نَّزِيدَكُمْ إِلَّا عَذَابًا

So taste (of that which ye have earned). No increase do We give you save of torment.
