Al-Muddaththir - The Cloaked One, The Man Wearing A Cloak - Meccan

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

  2. 74:1 O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)!

  3. 74:2 Arise and deliver thy warning!

  4. 74:3 And thy Lord do thou magnify!

  5. 74:4 And thy garments keep free from stain!

  6. 74:5 And all abomination shun!

  7. 74:6 Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)!

  8. 74:7 But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant!

  9. 74:8 Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded,

  10. 74:9 That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,-

  11. 74:10 Far from easy for those without Faith.

  12. 74:11 Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!-

  13. 74:12 To whom I granted resources in abundance,

  14. 74:13 And sons to be by his side!-

  15. 74:14 To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable!

  16. 74:15 Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);-

  17. 74:16 By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory!

  18. 74:17 Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities!

  19. 74:18 For he thought and he plotted;-

  20. 74:19 And woe to him! How he plotted!-

  21. 74:20 Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!-

  22. 74:21 Then he looked round;

  23. 74:22 Then he frowned and he scowled;

  24. 74:23 Then he turned back and was haughty;

  25. 74:24 Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old;

  26. 74:25 "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!"

  27. 74:26 Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire!

  28. 74:27 And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is?

  29. 74:28 Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!-

  30. 74:29 Darkening and changing the colour of man!

  31. 74:30 Over it are Nineteen.

  32. 74:31 And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.

  33. 74:32 Nay, verily: By the Moon,

  34. 74:33 And by the Night as it retreateth,

  35. 74:34 And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,-

  36. 74:35 This is but one of the mighty (portents),

  37. 74:36 A warning to mankind,-

  38. 74:37 To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;-

  39. 74:38 Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds.

  40. 74:39 Except the Companions of the Right Hand.

  41. 74:40 (They will be) in Gardens (of Delight): they will question each other,

  42. 74:41 And (ask) of the Sinners:

  43. 74:42 "What led you into Hell Fire?"

  44. 74:43 They will say: "We were not of those who prayed;

  45. 74:44 "Nor were we of those who fed the indigent;

  46. 74:45 "But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers;

  47. 74:46 "And we used to deny the Day of Judgment,

  48. 74:47 "Until there came to us (the Hour) that is certain."

  49. 74:48 Then will no intercession of (any) intercessors profit them.

  50. 74:49 Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from admonition?-

  51. 74:50 As if they were affrighted asses,

  52. 74:51 Fleeing from a lion!

  53. 74:52 Forsooth, each one of them wants to be given scrolls (of revelation) spread out!

  54. 74:53 By no means! But they fear not the Hereafter,

  55. 74:54 Nay, this surely is an admonition:

  56. 74:55 Let any who will, keep it in remembrance!

  57. 74:56 But none will keep it in remembrance except as Allah wills: He is the Lord of Righteousness, and the Lord of Forgiveness.
