بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
1 . O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)!
2 . Arise and deliver thy warning!
3 . And thy Lord do thou magnify!
4 . And thy garments keep free from stain!
5 . And all abomination shun!
6 . Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)!
7 . But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant!
8 . Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded,
9 . That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,-
10 . Far from easy for those without Faith.
11 . Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!-
12 . To whom I granted resources in abundance,
13 . And sons to be by his side!-
14 . To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable!
15 . Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);-
16 . By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory!
17 . Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities!
18 . For he thought and he plotted;-
19 . And woe to him! How he plotted!-
20 . Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!-
21 . Then he looked round;
22 . Then he frowned and he scowled;
23 . Then he turned back and was haughty;
24 . Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old;
25 . "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!"
26 . Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire!
27 . And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is?
28 . Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!-
29 . Darkening and changing the colour of man!
30 . Over it are Nineteen.
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.
32 . Nay, verily: By the Moon,
33 . And by the Night as it retreateth,
34 . And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,-
35 . This is but one of the mighty (portents),
36 . A warning to mankind,-
37 . To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;-
38 . Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds.
39 . Except the Companions of the Right Hand.
40 . (They will be) in Gardens (of Delight): they will question each other,
41 . And (ask) of the Sinners:
42 . "What led you into Hell Fire?"
43 . They will say: "We were not of those who prayed;
44 . "Nor were we of those who fed the indigent;
45 . "But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers;
46 . "And we used to deny the Day of Judgment,
47 . "Until there came to us (the Hour) that is certain."
48 . Then will no intercession of (any) intercessors profit them.
49 . Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from admonition?-
50 . As if they were affrighted asses,
51 . Fleeing from a lion!
52 . Forsooth, each one of them wants to be given scrolls (of revelation) spread out!
53 . By no means! But they fear not the Hereafter,
54 . Nay, this surely is an admonition:
55 . Let any who will, keep it in remembrance!
56 . But none will keep it in remembrance except as Allah wills: He is the Lord of Righteousness, and the Lord of Forgiveness.
