Ahmed Hulusi rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 Ha (life), Meem (knowledge – the reality of Muhammad);
44:2 The Clear Book (the apparent sunnatullah and the knowledge of the reality).
44:3 We disclosed it during a blessed night (an instance of the experience of non-existence)! We are the warners!
44:4 The wisdom pertaining to all affairs are realized in it (in that state of ‘nonexistence’);
44:5 By a command from Us! We are the disclosers (of the Rasuls)!
44:6 As grace from the Rabb (of those who are disclosed)! Indeed, He is HU, the Sami, the Aleem.
44:7 The Rabb of the heavens, the earth and everything in between... If you are of those who have attained certainty!
44:8 There is no god, only HU, who gives life and takes life! He is your Rabb and the Rabb of your forefathers!
44:9 But no, they are in doubt, amusing themselves (with the worldly life).
44:10 Watch for the day (the time when the reality of man will become apparent) when the sky will bring a visible smoke (dukhan).
44:11 It will encompass the people! It is a severe suffering (for not having realized and fulfilled the requisites of the reality)!
44:12 “Our Rabb! Take us out of this state of suffering; we are indeed believers (now)!”
44:13 How is it possible for them to be contemplating and taking a lesson now? When a clear Rasul had already come to them...
44:14 But they turned away from him and said, “He is a well instructed madman (possessed).”
44:15 Indeed, We will lighten the suffering a little... (But) you will return to your old state.
44:16 At that time (when the sky brings the visible smoke) We will seize with the greatest seizure... Indeed, We take retribution for all offences!
44:17 Indeed, We had tried the people of Pharaoh before them with difficulties... A karim (noble and generous) Rasul had come to them.
44:18 (Saying), “Deliver the servants of Allah to me... Indeed, I am a trustworthy Rasul...”
44:19 “Do not be arrogant towards Allah (do not defy the Rasul)... I have presented to you a clear and undeniable proof.”
44:20 “And I have sought refuge in my Rabb (the Names comprising my essence) and your Rabb (your essence) from your desire to stone me to death.”
44:21 “If you do not believe me then at least leave me alone!”
44:22 (Moses) turned to his Rabb, “These are guilty (dualist) people!”
44:23 (His Rabb said), “Set out with My servants in the night (take them away)... Indeed, you will be pursued.”
44:24 “Leave the sea in its open state... Indeed, they are an army to be drowned.”
44:25 They left behind many gardens and springs.
44:26 And many crops and beautiful sites...
44:27 And the many blessings with which they found comfort and pleasure!
44:28 Thus it is... And we left them for another people to inherit.
44:29 And the heaven and the earth did not weep for them (for those who drowned in corporeality) and nor were they looked upon (acknowledged).
44:30 Indeed, We saved the children of Israel from that humiliating suffering...
44:31 From Pharaoh (who symbolizes the ego)! Indeed, he was arrogant and a squanderer (who wasted his inherent essential forces).
44:32 Indeed, We chose them (the children of Israel) over all the worlds (people) with the knowledge!
44:33 And We gave them signs in which there was a clear trial.
44:34 Indeed, they said:
44:35 “There is nothing further than the first death; we are not to be resurrected after death!”
44:36 “Then bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful!”
44:37 Are they better or the people of Tubba’ (the ruler of Yemen) and those before them? We destroyed them! Indeed, they were guilty (dualists).
44:38 And We did not create the heavens, the earth and everything in between for play...
44:39 We created only as the Truth (the manifestations of Our Names)! But the majority of them do not know (this Truth).
44:40 They will all be gathered at the specified time of differentiation.
44:41 That is time when no friend will avail a friend! Nor will they be helped...
44:42 Except those upon who Allah bestows His grace... Indeed, He is HU, the Aziz, the Rahim.
44:43 Indeed, the tree of Zaqqum,
44:44 Is food for the denier (who denies his essential reality)!
44:45 It is like molten metal; it boils in their bellies.
44:46 Like the boiling of hot water.
44:47 “Seize him and drag him into the midst of Fire...”
44:48 “Then pour the suffering of that boiling water over his head!”
44:49 “Taste it! You considered yourself Aziz and Karim!”
44:50 “This is the thing you doubted (and denied)!”
44:51 Indeed, those who protected themselves are in safety.
44:52 Among Paradises and springs!
44:53 Dressed in fine silk and brocade, facing one another.
44:54 Thus it is... We partnered them (the conscious humans manifesting the forces of the Names) with houris (bodies with superior and clear vision [heart])!
44:55 They will ask therein for every kind of fruit (expressions of gnosis) – safe and secure.
44:56 They will not taste death therein except the first death (they are immortal)! And He will have protected them from the suffering of burning.
44:57 As bounty from your Rabb! This is the great attainment!
44:58 And We eased the Quran in your language, that perhaps they may reflect on it.
44:59 So, observe and wait! Indeed, they too are waiting.
