044 : Smoke

44:1
Ha-Mim.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

44:9
Yet they play about in doubt.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

44:17
We did, before them, try the people of Pharaoh: there came to them a messenger most honourable,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

44:26
And corn-fields and noble buildings,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

44:43
Verily the tree of Zaqqum

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

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

44:46
Like the boiling of scalding water.

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

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

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

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

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

44:52
Among Gardens and Springs;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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