Book 44


The Smoke

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[44.1]

Ha Mim!

[44.2]

I swear by the Book that makes manifest (the truth).

[44.3]
Surely We revealed it on a blessed night surely We are ever warning--

[44.4]

Therein every wise affair is made distinct,

[44.5]

A command from Us;
surely We are the senders (of apostles),

[44.6]

A mercy from your Lord,
surely He is the Hearing,
the Knowing,

[44.7]

The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them,
if you would be sure.

[44.8]

There is no god but He;
He gives life and causes death,
your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore.

[44.9]

Nay,
they are in doubt,
they sport.

[44.10]

Therefore keep waiting for the day when the heaven shall bring an evident smoke,

[44.11]

That shall overtake men;
this is a painful punishment.

[44.12]

Our Lord!
remove from us the punishment;
surely we are believers.

[44.13]

How shall they be reminded,
and there came to them an Apostle making clear (the truth),

[44.14]

Yet they turned their backs on him and said:
One taught (by others),
a madman.

[44.15]

Surely We will remove the punishment a little,
(but) you will surely return (to evil).

[44.16]

On the day when We will seize (them) with the most violent seizing;
surely We will inflict retribution.

[44.17]

And certainly We tried before them the people of Firon,
and there came to them a noble apostle,

[44.18]

Saying:
Deliver to me the servants of Allah,
surely I am a faithful apostle to you,

[44.19]

And that do not exalt yourselves against Allah,
surely I will bring to you a clear authority:

[44.20]

And surely I take refuge with my Lord and your Lord that you should stone me to death:

[44.21]

And if you do not believe in me,
then leave me alone.

[44.22]

Then he called upon his Lord:
These are a guilty people.

[44.23]

So go forth with My servants by night;
surely you will be pursued:

[44.24]

And leave the sea intervening;
surely they are a host that shall be drowned.

[44.25]

How many of the gardens and fountains have they left!

[44.26]

And cornfields and noble places!

[44.27]

And goodly things wherein they rejoiced;

[44.28]

Thus (it was),
and We gave them as a heritage to another people.

[44.29]

So the heaven and the earth did not weep for them,
nor were they respited.

[44.30]

And certainly We delivered the children of Israel from the abasing chastisement,

[44.31]

From Firon;
surely he was haughty,
(and) one of the extravagant.

[44.32]

And certainly We chose them,
having knowledge,
above the nations.

[44.33]

And We gave them of the communications wherein was clear blessing.

[44.34]

Most surely these do say:

[44.35]

There is naught but our first death and we shall not be raised again.

[44.36]

So bring our fathers (back),
if you are truthful.

[44.37]

Are they better or the people of Tubba and those before them?
We destroyed them,
for surely they were guilty.

[44.38]

And We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them in sport.

[44.39]

We did not create them both but with the truth,
but most of them do not know.

[44.40]

Surely the day of separation is their appointed term, of all of them

[44.41]

The day on which a friend shall not avail (his) friend aught,
nor shall they be helped,

[44.42]

Save those on whom Allah shall have mercy;
surely He is the Mighty the Merciful.

[44.43]

Surely the tree of the Zaqqum,

[44.44]
Is the food of the sinful

[44.45]

Like dregs of oil;
it shall boil in (their) bellies,

[44.46]

Like the boiling of hot water.

[44.47]

Seize him,
then drag him down into the middle of the hell;

[44.48]

Then pour above his head of the torment of the boiling water:

[44.49]

Taste;
you forsooth are the mighty,
the honorable:

[44.50]

Surely this is what you disputed about.

[44.51]

Surely those who guard (against evil) are in a secure place,

[44.52]

In gardens and springs;

[44.53]

They shall wear of fine and thick silk,
(sitting) face to face;

[44.54]

Thus (shall it be),
and We will wed them with Houris pure,
beautiful ones.

[44.55]

They shall call therein for every fruit in security;

[44.56]

They shall not taste therein death except the first death,
and He will save them from the punishment of the hell,

[44.57]

A grace from your Lord;
this is the great achievement.

[44.58]

So have We made it easy in your tongue that they may be mindful.

[44.59]

Therefore wait;
surely they are waiting.
