Did you notice?
44:1  Ha Meem
44:2  By the clear readable book,
44:3  We revealed it on a blessed night and have been warning humanity.
44:4  In it every matter is decided wisely;
44:5  all the commands come from Ourselves, We send Message and messengers,
44:6  a favour from Your Lord – the Hearer, the Knower,
44:7  the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth and what is between them – if only you are firm believers
44:8  There is no god but Him, He gives life and death, Your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.
44:9  Unfortunately, they are in doubt, dilly-dallying.
44:10  So wait for a Day when the sky brings clouds of smoke
44:11  that will cover up people and they will cry: “This is painful punishment!
44:12  Our Lord, relieve us, and we will believe.”
44:13  They will not learn a lesson even when a Messenger has come to them,
44:14  they turn away from him and say, “He’s been taught by someone and is possessed!”
44:15  Shortly We shall remove the punishment, but they will turn back to their disbelief.
44:16  The Day We seize them brutally, We shall take full revenge
44:17  Long ago We tested Pharaoh’s people, when a noble messenger came saying to them,
44:18  “Hand over to me the servants of Allah; I am a trustworthy messenger sent to you.
44:19  Don’t regard yourself greater than Allah; I’ve come with distinct authority to you.
44:20  I’ve sought protection from my Lord and your Lord from your abuse;
44:21  if you don’t believe me then leave me alone.”
44:22  Musa called out to His Lord, “These are wicked people.”
44:23  So We ordered him: “Take my servants by night, though you will be chased,
44:24  after crossing the sea leave it parted, they will be a drowned army.”
44:25  They, the Pharaoh’s lot, left behind many gardens, springs,
44:26  cornfields and spacious homes and
44:27  clubs where they had fun.
44:28  We raised other people to inherit them,
44:29  neither the Heavens nor the Earth wept over them, they weren’t given respite
44:30  We delivered the Israelites from the shameful punishment
44:31  of the Pharaoh; he was arrogant and had gone beyond limits.
44:32  We knowingly favoured them above other people of their time.
44:33  We showed them many miracles; in them was a clear test
44:34  These Makkans say:
44:35  “There is only one death for us; we won’t be resurrected.
44:36  Why don’t you bring to life our forefathers if you are truthful.”
44:37  Are they better, or the people of Tubba and the people before them? We destroyed them since they were wicked.
44:38  We didn’t create the Heavens and the Earth and what is between them as an amusement park.
44:39  We created them for a purpose, but most don’t know.
44:40  The Day of Decision is the fixed time for all of them,
44:41  a Day when no friend will benefit a friend in the slightest, nor will they be helped,
44:42  except anyone Allah wants to be kind to. He is the Mighty, the Caring
44:43  The tree of Zaqqum
44:44  will be the sinners’ food,
44:45  like molten copper that boils in the stomach,
44:46  bubbling like boiling water.
44:47  It will be said: “Seize him and drag him to the middle of Hell!
44:48  Then pour the punishment of boiling water over his head.
44:49  Taste it! You were the honourable influential one!
44:50  This is what you doubted!
44:51  The pious will live in a safe place;
44:52  of gardens and water fountains,
44:53  wearing embroidered silken dress enjoying each other’s company.
44:54  That’s how it will be, We shall wed them with pure spouses with gorgeous eyes.
44:55  Safe and satisfied, they will enjoy every kind of fruit.
44:56  They will taste death only once and will be protected from the punishment of Hell,
44:57  a bounty from your Lord! That is the supreme victory.
44:58  We made the Quran easy to understand in your language, so they may pay attention.
44:59  So wait, they’re waiting too
