44: Ad-Dukhan (الدخان)

Audio Surah: AD-DUKHAN

1:  Ha Mim!

2:  I swear by the Book that makes manifest (the truth).

3:  Surely We revealed it on a blessed night surely We are ever warning--

4:  Therein every wise affair is made distinct,

5:  A command from Us; surely We are the senders (of messengers),

6:  A mercy from your Lord, surely He is the Hearing, the Knowing,

7:  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure.

8:  There is no god but He; He gives life and causes death, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore.

9:  Nay, they are in doubt, they sport.

10:  Therefore keep waiting for the day when the heaven shall bring an evident smoke,

11:  That shall overtake men; this is a painful punishment.

12:  Our Lord! remove from us the punishment; surely we are believers.

13:  How shall they be reminded, and there came to them an Messenger making clear (the truth),

14:  Yet they turned their backs on him and said: One taught (by others), a madman.

15:  Surely We will remove the punishment a little, (but) you will surely return (to evil).

16:  On the day when We will seize (them) with the most violent seizing; surely We will inflict retribution.

17:  And certainly We tried before them the people of Firon, and there came to them a noble messenger,

18:  Saying: Deliver to me the servants of Allah, surely I am a faithful messenger to you,

19:  And that do not exalt yourselves against Allah, surely I will bring to you a clear authority:

20:  And surely I take refuge with my Lord and your Lord that you should stone me to death:

21:  And if you do not believe in me, then leave me alone.

22:  Then he called upon his Lord: These are a guilty people.

23:  So go forth with My servants by night; surely you will be pursued:

24:  And leave the sea intervening; surely they are a host that shall be drowned.

25:  How many of the gardens and fountains have they left!

26:  And cornfields and noble places!

27:  And goodly things wherein they rejoiced;

28:  Thus (it was), and We gave them as a heritage to another people.

29:  So the heaven and the earth did not weep for them, nor were they respited.

30:  And certainly We delivered the children of Israel from the abasing chastisement,

31:  From Firon; surely he was haughty, (and) one of the extravagant.

32:  And certainly We chose them, having knowledge, above the nations.

33:  And We gave them of the communications wherein was clear blessing.

34:  Most surely these do say:

35:  There is naught but our first death and we shall not be raised again.

36:  So bring our fathers (back), if you are truthful.

37:  Are they better or the people of Tubba and those before them? We destroyed them, for surely they were guilty.

38:  And We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them in sport.

39:  We did not create them both but with the truth, but most of them do not know.

40:  Surely the day of separation is their appointed term, of all of them

41:  The day on which a friend shall not avail (his) friend aught, nor shall they be helped,

42:  Save those on whom Allah shall have mercy; surely He is the Mighty the Merciful.

43:  Surely the tree of the Zaqqum,

44:  Is the food of the sinful

45:  Like dregs of oil; it shall boil in (their) bellies,

46:  Like the boiling of hot water.

47:  Seize him, then drag him down into the middle of the hell;

48:  Then pour above his head of the torment of the boiling water:

49:  Taste; you forsooth are the mighty, the honorable:

50:  Surely this is what you disputed about.

51:  Surely those who guard (against evil) are in a secure place,

52:  In gardens and springs;

53:  They shall wear of fine and thick silk, (sitting) face to face;

54:  Thus (shall it be), and We will wed them with Houris pure, beautiful ones.

55:  They shall call therein for every fruit in security;

56:  They shall not taste therein death except the first death, and He will save them from the punishment of the hell,

57:  A grace from your Lord; this is the great achievement.

58:  So have We made it easy in your tongue that they may be mindful.

59:  Therefore wait; surely they are waiting.
