The perspicuous Book is witnes
(That) We sent it down one night of blessing -- so that We could warn -
On which all affairs are sorted out and decide
As commands from Us. It is indeed We who send (messengers)
A mercy from your Lord. Verily He is all-hearing and all-knowing
The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, if you really do believe
There is no god other than He, who gives you life and death, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old
Yet they are lost in doubt and play
So watch for the day when the sky begins to emit clear smoke
Which would envelope mankind. That would be a grievous affliction
"O Lord, take away this torment from us," (they will pray); "we have come to believe."
How can a warning benefit them? The Apostle who explained all things clearly had come to them
But they turned away from him, and said: "He is well-instructed, (but) possessed."
If We remove the torment a little, you revert back (to misdeeds)
The day that We shall seize them with a grievous hold, We will indeed castigate them
We had tried the people of Pharaoh before them. A respected prophet had come to them (saying)
"Deliver the creatures of God to me. I am the trusted messenger sent to you
Do not think yourselves to be above God: I have come to you with clear authority
I have taken refuge in my Lord and your Lord against your stoning me to death
If you do not believe in me, leave me alone."
Then he called to his Lord: "These are a sinful people."
"Journey by night with My devotees," (it was said); "you will certainly be pursued
(Cross and) leave the sea undisturbed. The (pursuing) hosts will surely be drowned,"
How many gardens and fountains did they leave behind
And fields and stately mansions
And the comfort they enjoyed
Thus it was; and We passed them on to another people
Neither did the heavens weep for them, nor the earth, nor were they granted respite
So We saved the children of Israel from degrading sufferin
They (had experienced) under the Pharaoh. He was certainly a tyrant, guilty of excess
And We exalted them over the other people knowingly
And sent them tokens to bring out the best in them
"There is no dying for us but once; and we shall not be raised again
So bring our ancestors back, if you are truthful."
Are they better than the people of Tubba, and those who had lived before them, whom We destroyed as they were sinners
We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, out of play
We created them with definite purpose; but most of them do not understand
The Day of Judgement is your promised day of meeting
The day when friend will help no friend in the least, nor will they be helped
Apart from those to whom God is kind. He is all-mighty and all-merciful
The tree of Zaqqum will indeed b
The food of sinners
It is like pitch. It will fume in the bell
As does boiling water
"Seize him and drag him into the depths of Hell," (it will be said)
"Then pour over his head the torment of scalding water."
"Taste it," (they will be told). "You were indeed the mighty and noble
This is certainly what you had denied."
Surely those who fear and follow the straight path will be in a place of peace and securit
In the midst of gardens and of springs
Dressed in brocade and shot silk, facing one another
Just like that. We shall pair them with companions with large black eyes
They will call for every kind of fruit with satisfaction
There they will not know any death apart from the first death they had died, and will be kept safe from the torment of Hel
By the beneficence of your Lord. This will be the great success
Therefore We have made this (Qur'an) easy in your tongue. They may haply take a warning
So you wait. They are also waiting
