44: Ad-Dukhan (الدخان)
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.
