By the perspicuous Book
verily, we have sent it down on a blessed night;- verily, we had given warning
wherein is decided every wise affair
as an order from us. Verily, we were sending (apostles)
a mercy from thy Lord; verily, He both hears and knows
from the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between the two, if ye were but sure
There is no god but He, He quickens and He kills - your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore
Nay, they in doubt do play
But expect thou the day when the heaven shall bring obvious smok
to cover men - this is grievous torment
Our Lord! remove from us the torment; verily, we are believers
How can they have the reminder (now), when they have had a plain apostle
and when they turned their backs away from him and said, 'Taught! mad!
Verily, we will remove the torment a little, (but) ye will surely return
On the day when we will assault with the great assault, verily, we will take vengeance
And we already tried the people of Pharaoh when there came to them a noble apostle
'Send back to me God's servants; verily, I am to you a faithful apostle;
and, 'Exalt not yourselves above God; verily, I come to you with obvious authority
And, verily, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, that ye stone me not
And if ye believe not in me then let me alone!
Then he called upon his Lord, 'Verily, these are a sinful people.
So journey with my servants by night - verily, ye will be pursued
But leave the sea in quiet - verily, they are a host to be drowned
How many gardens and springs have they left
and corn lands and a noble place
and comfort wherein they did enjoy themselves
Thus - and we gave them for an inheritance to another people
And the heaven wept not for them, nor the earth, nor were they respited
But we saved the children of Israel from shameful woe!
- from Pharaoh; verily, he was haughty, one of the extravagant
And we did choose them, wittingly, above the worlds
and we gave them signs wherein was an obvious trial
'It is but our first death
so bring our fathers, if ye do speak the truth!
Are they better than the people of Tubbah, and those before them? We destroyed them - verily, they were sinners
Nor did we create the heavens and the earth, and what is between the two in sport
we did but create them in truth, though most of them know it not
Verily, the day of separation is their appointed term
the day when master shall not avail client at all, nor shall they be helped
save whomsoever God shall have mercy on; verily, He is the mighty, the merciful
Verily, the Zaqqum tre
(shall be) the food of the sinful
as it were melting, shall it boil in their bellie
like the boiling of hot water!
'Take him and hale him into the midst of hell
then pour over his head the torment of hot water!
Taste! verily, thou art the mighty, the honourable
Verily, this is that whereon ye did dispute!
Verily, the pious shall be in a safe place
in gardens and springs
they shall be clad in satin and stout silk face to face
Thus!- and we will wed them to bright and large-eyed maids
They shall call therein for every fruit in safety
They shall not taste therein of death save their first death, and we will keep them from the torment of hell
Grace from thy Lord, that is the grand bliss
And we have only made it easy for thy tongue, that haply they may be mindful
Then watch thou; verily, they are watching too
