A.L. Bilal Muhammad et al (2018) rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
---
44:1 Haa, Miim.
44:2 By the Book that makes things clear.
44:3 We sent it down during a blessed night, for We wish to warn.
44:4 In the night is made clear every affair of wisdom,
44:5 By command, from Our presence, for We send revelation,
44:6 As mercy from your Lord, for He hears and knows all things.
44:7 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if you have an assured faith.
44:8 There is no god but He. It is He Who gives life and gives death, the Guardian Evolver to you and your earliest ancestors.
44:9 Yet they play around in doubt.
44:10 Then watch for the day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke, plainly visible,
44:11 Smothering the people. This will be a terrible penalty.
44:12 “Our Lord, remove the penalty from us, for we really do believe.”
44:13 How can there be a reminder for them, seeing that a messenger explaining things clearly has already come to them?
44:14 Yet they turn away from him and say, “Tutored by others, a person possessed.”
44:15 We will indeed remove the penalty for a while and truly you will return.
44:16 One day We will seize you with a mighty onslaught. We will indeed exact retribution.
44:17 We did, before them, try the people of Pharaoh. There came to them a messenger honorable
44:18 Saying, “Restore to me the servants of God. I am to you a messenger worthy of all trust,
44:19 “And do not be arrogant as against God, for I come to you with clear authority.
44:20 “For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me.
44:21 “If you do not believe, at least keep away from me.”
44:22 Then he cried to his Lord, “These are indeed people given to harmful deeds.”
44:23 “March forth with My servants by night, for you are sure to be pursued.
44:24 “And leave the sea divided, for they are an army destined to be drowned.”
44:25 How many were the gardens and springs they left behind,
44:26 And corn-fields, and impressive buildings,
44:27 And wealth which they had taken such pride.
44:28 All this We made other people inherit.
44:29 And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them, nor were they given respite.
44:30 We did deliver the Children of Israel from a crushing punishment–
44:31 Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant and one of the transgressors.
44:32 And We chose them above the nations knowingly,
44:33 And granted them signs in which there were a manifest trial.
44:34 As for these, they say humorously,
44:35 “There is nothing beyond our first death, and we will not be raised again.
44:36 “Then bring back our ancestors, if what you say is true.”
44:37 What, are they better than the people of Touba, and those who were before them? We caused them to perish because they were guilty of harmful deeds.
44:38 We did not create the heavens, the earth, and all between them, for mere play.
44:39 We did not create them except for just ends, but most of them do not understand.
44:40 Indeed the day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them,
44:41 The day no protector can avail his client in anything, and no help can they receive,
44:42 Except those who receive God's mercy, for He is Exalted in Might, the Merciful Redeemer.
44:43 Indeed the tree of Zaqqum—
44:44 Will be the food of the sinful,
44:45 Like molten brass, it will boil in their insides,
44:46 Like the boiling of scalding water.
44:47 “Seize him and drag him into the middle of the blazing fire.
44:48 “Then pour over his head the penalty of boiling water.
44:49 “Taste this. Truly were you mighty, full of pride.
44:50 “Indeed this is what you used to doubt.”
44:51 As for the righteous, they will be in a position of security,
44:52 Among gardens and springs,
44:53 Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, they will face each other.
44:54 And We will join them to companions with beautiful eyes.
44:55 There they can call for every kind of fruit in peace and security,
44:56 Nor will they taste death there, only the first death, and He will preserve them from the penalty of the blazing fire,
44:57 As a bounty from your Lord. That will be the ultimate achievement.
44:58 Indeed, We have made this easy in your tongue, in order that they may take heed.
44:59 So wait and watch, for they too are waiting.
