28. وَمِزَاجُهُ مِن تَسْنِيمٍ
Blended with the water of Tasnim, (heights ultimate of evolution),
29. عَيْنًا يَشْرَبُ بِهَا الْمُقَرَّبُونَ

So, the believers will laugh at the infidels on that day,
36. عَلَى الْأَرَائِكِ يَنظُرُونَ
Regarding them from their cushioned seats.
37. هَلْ ثُوِّبَ الْكُفَّارُ مَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ
Will not the infidels pay for what they had done?
