Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 Ha Mim!
44:2 By the Book that makes plain.
44:3 Lo! We revealed it on a blessed night - Lo! We are ever warning (against evil and its consequences) -
44:4 Therein (the blessed night) every wise affair is made clear,
44:5 A command from Us; surely We are ever the senders (of revelations),
44:6 As a mercy from your Lord. Surely He is the Hearer, the Knower,
44:7 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure (in faith.)
44:8 There is no God but He; He quickens and causes death, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.
44:9 Nay, but they make sport in doubt,
44:10 Therefore, keep waiting for the day when the heaven shall bring evident smoke (or mist),
44:11 That shall overtake men; this is a painful punishment.
44:12 (They pray,) "Our Lord! Remove from us the punishment; surely we are believers."
44:13 How can they remember (or understand Allah or the message), when a Messenger making clear (the truth) had already come to them,
44:14 Butt they had turned their backs on him and said, "He is one taught by others, a madman."
44:15 Lo! We remove the punishment a little, (but) you will surely return (to evil).
44:16 On the day when We will seize them with a mighty seizing, We will indeed exact retribution.
44:17 And certainly We tried before them the people of Pharaoh, and there came to them a noble Messenger,
44:18 Saying, "Deliver to me the servants of Allah; surely I am a trustworthy messenger unto you,
44:19 "And be not arrogant against Allah, for I come with clear authority:
44:20 "And surely I have taken refuge with my Lord and your Lord against your stoning me to death:
44:21 "And if you put no faith in me, then let me go."
44:22 Then he called upon his Lord, "These are a guilty people".
44:23 (The reply came,) "So go forth with My servants by night; for surely you will be pursued:
44:24 "And leave the sea divided (as a furrow); surely they are a host that shall be drowned."
44:25 How many are the gardens and springs they have left behind!
44:26 And corn fields 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 Pharaoh; surely he was haughty, (and) one of those who committed excesses.
44:32 And certainly We chose them, knowingly (or purposely), above all the nations.
44:33 And We gave them signs wherein was a clear trial.
44:34 Lo! These (the pagan Arabs) say,
44:35 "There is naught but our first death and we shall not be raised again.
44:36 "Bring back our fathers, if you are truthful."
44:37 What! Are they better than 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 create them both not, except with truth, but most of them know not.
44:40 Assuredly the Day of Decision (or of Sorting) is the term appointed for all of them,
44:41 The day on which friend can in naught avail friend, nor can they be helped,
44:42 Save those on whom Allah has mercy; surely He is the Mighty the Merciful.
44:43 Behold the tree of Zaqqum,
44:44 Is the food of the sinful,
44:45 Like molten brass, it shall boil in (their) bellies,
44:46 Like the seesing of boiling water.
44:47 (It will be said,) "Seize him, then drag him down into the midst of hell;
44:48 Then pour above his head of the torment of the boiling water:
44:49 "Saying, ´Taste; lo! You were forsooth the mighty, the noble!
44:50 "´Surely this is what you used to doubt!´"
44:51 Surely the righteous are in a secure place,
44:52 Amidst Gardens and springs;
44:53 Attired in fine silk and rich brocade, face to face;
44:54 Thus shall it be, and We will join them with Houris (pure and beautiful companions) with wide, lovely eyes.
44:55 They shall call in safety therein for every fruit;
44:56 They taste not death therein except the first death (i.e. in this physical life), and He will have saved them from the doom of hell,
44:57 A grace from your Lord; this is the supreme achievement (or triumph).
44:58 Verily We have made it (the Quran) easy in your tongue that they may be mindful.
44:59 Therefore wait (O Muhammad); they too are waiting.
