Wahiduddin Khan rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 Ha Mim
44:2 By the Book that makes things clear,
44:3 surely We sent it down on a blessed nightWe have always sent warnings
44:4 on that night every wise decree is specified
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 believe
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 torment
44:31 at the hands of Pharaoh: he was a tyrant who exceeded all bounds.
44:32 We knowingly chose them above all other people
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 tree
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 Hell
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.
