Ha, Mim (These are the names of letters of the Arabic alphabet, and only Allah knows their meaning here)
And (by) the evident Book
Surely We have sent it down in a blessed night; surely We have been warning
Therein every Wise Command is distinctly (decreed)
(As) a Command from Our providence; surely We have (ever) been sending (Messengers)
As a mercy from your Lord; surely He, Ever He, is The Ever-Hearing, The Ever-Knowing
The Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them both, in case you are (believers) with certitude
There is no god except He; He gives life and He makes to die; (He is) your Lord and The Lord of your earliest fathers
No indeed, (but) they are in doubt, playing
So be on the watch for a Day when the heaven will come up with an evident smoke
That will envelop mankind; this is a painful torment
"Our Lord, lift off from us the torment; surely, we are believers."
However could they have the Reminding, and an evident Messenger has already come to them
(Yet) thereafter they turned away from him and said, "A man taught (by others), a madman!"
Surely We are lifting off the torment a little; surely you will be going back (to disbelief)
Upon the Day when We will assault you with the greatest assault; surely We will be Avengers
And indeed already before them We tempted the people of Firaawn, (Pharaoh) and an honorable Messenger came to them. (Saying), "Discharge (Literally: give back to me) to me the bondmen of Allah; surely I am for you a trustworthy Messenger."
And, "Do not exalt yourselves against Allah; surely I am bringing you an evident, all-binding authority
And surely I take refuge in my Lord and your Lord that you should (not) stone me
And in case you do not believe me, then keep apart from me!"
So he invoked his Lord, (saying
"These are a criminal people."
"Then set forth with My bondmen by night, surely you will be closely followed
And leave the sea becalmed; (Or: furrowed) surely they are a drowned host."
They left how many gardens and springs
And plantations and how honorable a station
And what comfort they used to (enjoy) cheerfully
Thus (it was); and We made another people to inherit (these favors)
So, in no way did the heaven and the earth weep for them, and in no way were they respited
And indeed We already safely delivered the Seeds (Or: sons) of Israel) from degrading torment
From Firaawn; (Pharaoh) surely he was exalted, of the extravagant
And indeed We already chose them, out of a knowledge, over the worlds
And We brought them (some) signs wherein there was an evident trial
Surely these (people) are indeed saying
"Decidedly there is nothing except our first death; and in no way will we be raised up
Then come up with (i.e., bring) our fathers, in case you are sincere!"
Are they more charitable, (i.e., better) or the people of Tubbac and the ones even before them? We caused them to perish; surely they were criminals
And in no way did We create the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them both, playing
In no way did We create them both except with The Truth; but most of them do not know
Surely the Day of Verdict is their appointed time all together
The Day a patronizer will not avail any patronized thing, and they will not be vindicated
Except him on whom Allah has mercy; surely He, Ever He, is The Ever-Mighty, The Ever-Merciful
Surely the Tree of Az-Zaqqum
Is the food of the constantly vicious
Like molten metal, it boils in the bellies
As the boiling of scalding water
"Take him, then thrust him into the (deepest) level of Hell-Fire
Thereafter pour above his head of the torment of scalding (water)
Taste! Surely you, (only) you are (i.e., you used to think that you were mighty) the constantly mighty, the constantly honorable
Surely this is what you used to wrangle about."
Surely the pious will be in a station constantly secure
In Gardens and Springs
Wearing (garments) of serenest and brocade, facing one another
Thus (it will be); and We will espouse them to wide-eyed h?r (Fair females in paradise)
Therein (they will be) calling for every (kind) of fruit, secure
They will not taste therein of death, except the first death, and He will protect them from the torment of Hell-Fire
A Grace from your Lord; that is it which is the magnificent triumph
So We have surely made it easy by your tongue, only that possibly they would remind themselves
Then be on the watch; surely they (too) are on the watch
