[85:1] I swear by the sky, the one having stellar formations,
[85:2] and by the Promised Day,
[85:3] and by that which attends, and that which is attended,
[85:4] cursed were the People of the Trench,
[85:5] the (people of the) fire that was rich with fuel,
[85:6] when they were sitting by it,
[85:7] and were watching what they were doing with the believers.
[85:8] They punished them for nothing but that they believed in Allah, the All-Mighty, the Worthy of All Praise,
[85:9] the One to whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is witness over everything.
