And the clarifying Scripture
We have sent it down in a blessed night. Surely, We were to warn
In it, is a decree for every matter of wisdom
A decree from Us. Surely, We were to send messengers
A mercy from your Lord. He is the Hearer, the Knowledgeable
The Lord of the heavens and the Earth, and everything between them. If you were certain
There is no god except Him. He gives life and causes death; your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors
No; they are in doubt, playing
Therefore, watch for the day when the sky will bring a visible smoke
It will envelop the people: "This is a painful retribution!"
"Our Lord, remove the retribution from us; we are believers."
How is it that now they remember, while a clarifying messenger had come to the
But they turned away from him and said: "Clearly educated, but crazy!"
We will remove the retribution in a while; you will then revert back
On the Day We strike the great strike, We will avenge
And We had tested before them the people of Pharaoh, and an honourable messenger came to them
"Restore to me the servants of God. I am a trustworthy messenger to you."
"And, do not transgress against God. I come to you with clear authority."
"And I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, should you stone me."
"And if you do not wish to believe, then leave me alone."
Subsequently, he called on his Lord: "These are a criminal people."
You shall travel with My servants during the night; you will be pursued
And cross the sea quickly; their troops will be drowned
How many paradises and springs did they leave behin
And crops and luxurious dwelling
And blessings that they enjoye
Thus it was!; and We caused another people to inherit it
Neither the heaven, nor the Earth wept over them, and they were not respited
And We saved the Children of Israel from the humiliating agony
From Pharaoh; he was a transgressing tyrant
And We have chosen them, out of knowledge, over the worlds
And We granted them signs, which constituted a great test
These people now are saying
"There is nothing but our first death; and we will never be resurrected!"
"So bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful!"
Are they better or the people of Tubba` and those before them We destroyed them, they were criminals
And We have not created the heavens and the Earth, and everything between them, for mere play
We did not create them except with the truth, but most of them do not know
Surely, the Day of Separation is the appointment for them all
That is the Day when no friend can help his friend in any way; nor will they be helped
Except him on whom God has mercy. He is the Noble, the Merciful
Surely, the tree of Bitterness
Will be the food for the sinful
Like hot oil, it will boil in the stomachs
Like the boiling of liquid
"Take him and throw him into the midst of Hell."
"Then pour upon his head the retribution of boiling liquid."
"Taste this; surely you are the noble, the generous!"
Surely, this is what you used to doubt
The righteous will be in a place of security
Among paradises and springs
Wearing silk and satin; facing each other
So it is, and We coupled them with wonderful companions
They enjoy in it all kinds of fruits, in perfect peace
They do not taste death therein except for the first death, and He has spared them the retribution of Hell
As a blessing from your Lord. Such is the great triumph
We have thus made it easy in your language, perhaps they may take heed
Therefore, keep watch; for they too will keep watch
