Linda “iLHam” Barto rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 Ha. Meem.
44:2 Consider the enlightening Book.
44:3 We bestowed it during a blessed night for We wanted to forewarn.
44:4 Within it, every aspect of wisdom is distinguished.
44:5 [It is so] by command from Us, for We grant,…
44:6 …as a mercy from your Lord. He truly is the All-hearing, the All-knowing.
44:7 [He is] the Lord of Heavens and Earth and all among them. If only you were certain!
44:8 No god is there except Him! He gives life, and He gives death –the Lord of you and your earliest ancestors.
44:9 Yet, they flit in doubt.
44:10 Watch for the day when the sky will erupt in thick smoke.
44:11 [The smoke will be] enveloping the people. This will be a wretched penalty!
44:12 “Our Lord, remove the penalty from us, for now we really do believe!”
44:13 How shall the message solidify for them, seeing that a message clearly explaining had come to them?
44:14 Yet they turned away from him and said, “He’s been coached! He’s possessed!”
44:15 We shall indeed withdraw the penalty for a while, but truly you [sinners] will lapse [back to your wicked ways].
44:16 One day We will seize you with a mighty onslaught. We will indeed exact retribution.
44:17 Before them, We tried the people of Pharaoh. An honorable messenger came to them.
44:18 [He was] saying, “Restore to me the servants of Allah. I am for you a trustworthy messenger.
44:19 Do not be arrogant against Allah. I come to you with evident authority.
44:20 Indeed, I have sought refuge, with my Lord and your Lord, so you will not stone me.
44:21 If you do not believe in me, separate yourselves from me.”
44:22 [After their aggression], he cried to his Lord, “These people are lost sinners.”
44:23 [Allah’s orders:] “March forth with My servants by night, for you will certainly be pursued.
44:24 Leave the sea as a furrow, for they [Pharaoh’s army] are a host to be drowned.”
44:25 They left behind many gardens and springs.
44:26 [They left behind] cornfields and splendid buildings.
44:27 [They left behind] luxuries that made them happy.
44:28 That’s the way it was. We made other people inheritors [of what they left behind].
44:29 Neither Heaven nor Earth shed a tear for them. They were given no respite.
44:30 We delivered the Children of Israel from humiliating suffering.
44:31 [The suffering] was inflicted by Pharaoh for he was arrogant among the sinners.
44:32 We chose (the Children of Israel), with knowledge, above all other nations.
44:33 [We] granted them signs in which there was evident trial.
44:34 As for these [Quraysh], they say this:…
44:35 …“There is only our first death, and we will not be raised again.
44:36 “Return our ancestors if what you say is true.”
44:37 Are they any better than the people of Tubba and those who came before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin.
44:38 We did not create the skies and Earth and all among them merely for sport.
44:39 We did not create them for anything except a purpose. Most of them do not understand.
44:40 Truly, the day of distinction is the time appointed for all of them.
44:41 [It is] the day when no friend can avail his/her friend at all. They can receive no help.
44:42 The exception is those who receive Allah’s mercy. Truly, He is the Victorious, the Most Merciful.
44:43 Truly, the Tree of Bitterness…
44:44 …will be the food of the sinners.
44:45 [It will be] like molten brass. It will boil in their bellies.
44:46 [It will be] like the boiling of scalding water.
44:47 “Seize him/her. Drag him/her into the midst of the blazing fire.
44:48 Pour over his/her head the torment of boiling water.
44:49 “Taste! Truly, you were high and mighty!
44:50 “Truly, this [Hell] is what you used to doubt.”
44:51 The righteous will be in a position of security.
44:52 [They will be] among gardens and springs.
44:53 [They will be] dressed in fine silk and rich brocade. They will face each other.
44:54 Thus shall it be. We shall join them to companions with beautiful, wide, lustrous eyes.
44:55 There they can ask for every kind of fruit, in security.
44:56 They will never taste death, except the initial death. He will save them from the penalty of Hell.
44:57 [That will be] a grace from your Lord. That will be the ultimate achievement!
44:58 Truly, We have made this [Qur’an] easy in your tongue so that they may pay attention.
44:59 Wait and watch. They also are waiting.
