44:1  Ha Mi
44:2  By the Book that makes things clear
44:3  surely We sent it down on a blessed nightWe have always sent warning
44:4  on that night every wise decree is specifie
44:5  by Our own commandWe have been sending messages
44:6  as a mercy from your Lord, He hears all and knows all
44:7  He is the Lord of heaven and earth and all that is between themif only you would really believ
44:8  there is no deity save Him: It is He who gives both life and deathHe is your Lord, and the Lord of your forefathers
44:9  yet, they toy with their doubts
44:10  [Prophet], watch out for the Day when the sky brings forth plainly visible clouds of smoke
44:11  That will envelop the people. This will be a painful punishment
44:12  Then they will say, Lord, relieve us from this torment, for truly we are now believers in You
44:13  How can they benefit from admonition, seeing that a messenger had already come to them explaining things clearly
44:14  Then they turned away from him and said, He is a madman, taught by others
44:15  Were We to ease the torment for a while, you would still revert to denial of the truth
44:16  On the Day We inflict the direst scourge upon all sinners, We will certainly exact retribution
44:17  We tried the people of Pharaoh before them: a noble messenger was sent to them
44:18  saying, Hand over God's servants to me. I am a trustworthy messenger for you
44:19  Do not set yourselves above God: I bring you clear authority
44:20  I have sought refuge with my Lord and your Lord lest you stone me [to death]
44:21  If you do not believe in me, at least keep away from me
44:22  Then he cried out to his Lord, These are sinful people
44:23  God said, Set out with My servants by night, for you will certainly be pursued
44:24  Leave the sea behind you parted; they are a host destined to be drowned
44:25  How many gardens and fountains they left behind them
44:26  and cornfields and splendid buildings
44:27  and pleasant things in which they delighted
44:28  Such was their end, and what had been theirs We gave to other people to inherit
44:29  Neither heaven nor earth wept for them, nor were they allowed any respite
44:30  We saved the Children of Israel from their humiliating tormen
44:31  at the hands of Pharaoh: he was a tyrant who exceeded all bounds
44:32  We knowingly chose them above all other peopl
44:33  and showed them signs in which there was a clear test
44:34  Yet those who deny the truth say
44:35  there is nothing beyond our first death; we shall not be raised again
44:36  So bring our fathers [back], if what you say is true
44:37  Are they 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 idly create the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them
44:39  We did not create them save with a purpose, yet most people have no knowledge of this
44:40  Truly, the Day of Decision is the appointed time for all of them
44:41  the Day when no friend shall be of the least avail to another, nor shall any be helped
44:42  save those to whom God shows mercy. Surely, He is the Mighty, the Merciful One.[38]
44:43  Surely the fruit of the Zaqqum tre
44:44  shall be food for the sinners
44:45  like the dregs of oil, it shall boil in their bellies
44:46  like the boiling of hot water
44:47  [A voice will cry], Seize him and drag him into the midst of Hell
44:48  Then pour boiling water over his head as punishment
44:49  Taste this; you who considered yourself the mighty, the honourable
44:50  This is what you doubted
44:51  But those mindful of God will be in a safe place
44:52  among gardens and springs
44:53  dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, and they will face each other
44:54  so it will be. We shall wed them to maidens with large, dark eyes
44:55  They will call therein for every kind of fruit, in peace and security
44:56  They will not taste death therein, save the first death. God will save them from the torment of Hel
44:57  as an act of grace. That will be the supreme triumph
44:58  We have made this Quran easy to understandin your own languageso that they may take heed
44:59  Wait then; they too are waiting
