Ad-Dukhan - Smoke - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 44:1 Ha-Mim.

  3. 44:2 By the Book that makes things clear;-

  4. 44:3 We sent it down during a Blessed Night: for We (ever) wish to warn (against Evil).

  5. 44:4 In the (Night) is made distinct every affair of wisdom,

  6. 44:5 By command, from Our Presence. For We (ever) send (revelations),

  7. 44:6 As Mercy from thy Lord: for He hears and knows (all things);

  8. 44:7 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if ye (but) have an assured faith.

  9. 44:8 There is no god but He: It is He Who gives life and gives death,- The Lord and Cherisher to you and your earliest ancestors.

  10. 44:9 Yet they play about in doubt.

  11. 44:10 Then watch thou for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke (or mist) plainly visible,

  12. 44:11 Enveloping the people: this will be a Penalty Grievous.

  13. 44:12 (They will say:) "Our Lord! remove the Penalty from us, for we do really believe!"

  14. 44:13 How shall the message be (effectual) for them, seeing that an Apostle explaining things clearly has (already) come to them,-

  15. 44:14 Yet they turn away from him and say: "Tutored (by others), a man possessed!"

  16. 44:15 We shall indeed remove the Penalty for a while, (but) truly ye will revert (to your ways).

  17. 44:16 One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught: We will indeed (then) exact Retribution!

  18. 44:17 We did, before them, try the people of Pharaoh: there came to them an apostle most honourable,

  19. 44:18 Saying: "Restore to me the Servants of Allah: I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust;

  20. 44:19 "And be not arrogant as against Allah: for I come to you with authority manifest.

  21. 44:20 "For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me.

  22. 44:21 "If ye believe me not, at least keep yourselves away from me."

  23. 44:22 (But they were aggressive:) then he cried to his Lord: "These are indeed a people given to sin."

  24. 44:23 (The reply came:) "March forth with My Servants by night: for ye are sure to be pursued.

  25. 44:24 "And leave the sea as a furrow (divided): for they are a host (destined) to be drowned."

  26. 44:25 How many were the gardens and springs they left behind,

  27. 44:26 And corn-fields and noble buildings,

  28. 44:27 And wealth (and conveniences of life), wherein they had taken such delight!

  29. 44:28 Thus (was their end)! And We made other people inherit (those things)!

  30. 44:29 And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them: nor were they given a respite (again).

  31. 44:30 We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment,

  32. 44:31 Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.

  33. 44:32 And We chose them aforetime above the nations, knowingly,

  34. 44:33 And granted them Signs in which there was a manifest trial

  35. 44:34 As to these (Quraish), they say forsooth:

  36. 44:35 "There is nothing beyond our first death, and we shall not be raised again.

  37. 44:36 "Then bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!"

  38. 44:37 What! Are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin.

  39. 44:38 We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, merely in (idle) sport:

  40. 44:39 We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.

  41. 44:40 Verily the Day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them,-

  42. 44:41 The Day when no protector can avail his client in aught, and no help can they receive,

  43. 44:42 Except such as receive Allah's Mercy: for He is Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.

  44. 44:43 Verily the tree of Zaqqum

  45. 44:44 Will be the food of the Sinful,-

  46. 44:45 Like molten brass; it will boil in their insides.

  47. 44:46 Like the boiling of scalding water.

  48. 44:47 (A voice will cry: "Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire!

  49. 44:48 "Then pour over his head the Penalty of Boiling Water,

  50. 44:49 "Taste thou (this)! Truly wast thou mighty, full of honour!

  51. 44:50 "Truly this is what ye used to doubt!"

  52. 44:51 As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of Security,

  53. 44:52 Among Gardens and Springs;

  54. 44:53 Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, they will face each other;

  55. 44:54 So; and We shall join them to Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.

  56. 44:55 There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security;

  57. 44:56 Nor will they there taste Death, except the first death; and He will preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire,-

  58. 44:57 As a Bounty from thy Lord! that will be the supreme achievement!

  59. 44:58 Verily, We have made this (Qur'an) easy, in thy tongue, in order that they may give heed.

  60. 44:59 So wait thou and watch; for they (too) are waiting.
