Ad-Dukhan ( 59 Verses )

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

1 . Ha-Mim.
2 . By the Book that makes things clear;-
3 . We sent it down during a Blessed Night: for We (ever) wish to warn (against Evil).
4 . In the (Night) is made distinct every affair of wisdom,
5 . By command, from Our Presence. For We (ever) send (revelations),
6 . As Mercy from thy Lord: for He hears and knows (all things);
7 . The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if ye (but) have an assured faith.
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.
9 . Yet they play about in doubt.
10 . Then watch thou for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke (or mist) plainly visible,
11 . Enveloping the people: this will be a Penalty Grievous.
12 . (They will say:) "Our Lord! remove the Penalty from us, for we do really believe!"
13 . How shall the message be (effectual) for them, seeing that an Messenger explaining things clearly has (already) come to them,-
14 . Yet they turn away from him and say: "Tutored (by others), a man possessed!"
15 . We shall indeed remove the Penalty for a while, (but) truly ye will revert (to your ways).
16 . One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught: We will indeed (then) exact Retribution!
17 . We did, before them, try the people of Pharaoh: there came to them an apostle most honourable,
18 . Saying: "Restore to me the Servants of Allah. I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust;
19 . "And be not arrogant as against Allah. for I come to you with authority manifest.
20 . "For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me.
21 . "If ye believe me not, at least keep yourselves away from me."
22 . (But they were aggressive:) then he cried to his Lord: "These are indeed a people given to sin."
23 . (The reply came:) "March forth with My Servants by night: for ye are sure to be pursued.
24 . "And leave the sea as a furrow (divided): for they are a host (destined) to be drowned."
25 . How many were the gardens and springs they left behind,
26 . And corn-fields and noble buildings,
27 . And wealth (and conveniences of life), wherein they had taken such delight!
28 . Thus (was their end)! And We made other people inherit (those things)!
29 . And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them: nor were they given a respite (again).
30 . We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment,
31 . Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.
32 . And We chose them aforetime above the nations, knowingly,
33 . And granted them Signs in which there was a manifest trial
34 . As to these (Quraish), they say forsooth:
35 . "There is nothing beyond our first death, and we shall not be raised again.
36 . "Then bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!"
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.
38 . We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, merely in (idle) sport:
39 . We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.
40 . Verily the Day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them,-
41 . The Day when no protector can avail his client in aught, and no help can they receive,
42 . Except such as receive Allah's Mercy: for He is Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
43 . Verily the tree of Zaqqum
44 . Will be the food of the Sinful,-
45 . Like molten brass; it will boil in their insides.
46 . Like the boiling of scalding water.
47 . (A voice will cry: "Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire!
48 . "Then pour over his head the Penalty of Boiling Water,
49 . "Taste thou (this)! Truly wast thou mighty, full of honour!
50 . "Truly this is what ye used to doubt!"
51 . As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of Security,
52 . Among Gardens and Springs;
53 . Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, they will face each other;
54 . So; and We shall join them to Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.
55 . There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security;
56 . Nor will they there taste Death, except the first death; and He will preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire,-
57 . As a Bounty from thy Lord! that will be the supreme achievement!
58 . Verily, We have made this (Qur'an) easy, in thy tongue, in order that they may give heed.
59 . So wait thou and watch; for they (too) are waiting.
