By this divine ‘Book’, which reveals the ultimate truth, is a revelation from Allâh.
We sent it down on a ‘Blessed Night’. We truthfully are ever warning.
On this night, every wise command is made distinct.
A command from Us, We truthfully are ever sending ‘Messengers’
As a (divine) clemency from your Lord. Indeed, He is All-hearing and All-knowing.
(Allâh is) the Lord of the heavens and of the earth and of all that is between them if you do have a definite faith.
There is no God but He. He is the One Who gives life and causes death. He is your Lord and the Lord of your fore-fathers.
Nay, they harbour doubts, playing.
Then wait for the Day when the sky brings dense smoke,
Enveloping the people. This is an agonizing chastisement.
(They will say): "Our Lord, has put an end to this chastisement. Of course, we are really of those who are inclined to believe in Him.”
How could there be remembrance for them, when a ‘Messenger’ distinctly had come to them.
But they turned away from him, saying: "(He has been) taught, (and he is) a lunatic."
Indeed, We will put an end to the chastisement for a while. Indeed, you, , (‘Polytheists’), will return again (to your sinful & impious acts).
On the day when We will seize them with the most fierce seizing. Definitely, We will exact divine retribution.
Indeed We tried the clan of ‘Pharaoh’ before them, and there came to them an honorable ‘Messenger’,
Saying: “Deliver to me the servants of Allâh (among the ‘children of Israel’). I am truly faithful ‘Messenger’ to you.”
Exalt not yourselves against Allâh. Indeed, I come to you with a manifest authority.
I truly seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me to death.
But if you do not believe in me, then at least stay away from me.”
Then he appealed to his Lord, saying: “These are a folk of ungodly sinners .”
(The Lord Allâh said): “Then set out with My servants by night. Surely, you will be followed,
And leave the sea as it is. (“Pharaoh” & his) army are (doomed) to be drowned."
How many they left behind of gardens, springs,
Cornfields, luxury homes
And other bounties which they enjoyed.
Thus, (it was). We caused all these things to be inherited by other people.
Neither the sky nor the earth shed a tear over them; nor were they reprieved.
Indeed, We saved the ‘Children of Israel’ from the humiliating torment,
Inflicted by ‘Pharaoh’. Indeed, he was supercilious and one of the prodigals.
We chose them, out of a knowledge, above all creatures.
We gave them of the signs that in which there was a hard test.
Indeed, these people, (-the Quraysh Tribe of Mecca-), are saying:
"There is naught but our first death. And we shall not be resurrected.
Thus, bring back our fore-fathers, if you are truthful.
Are they better or the folk of ‘Tubba' and those before them? We annihilated them because they were truly ungodly sinners.
We created not the heavens or the earth, or all that is between them, for no reason.
We created them not except for a specific reason, but most of them don’t know.
Absolutely, the ‘Decisive Day’ is the term for them all,
The day when no friend will be able to avail his friend in any way, nor will they be helped,
Except the one to whom Allâh will show (His) mercy. Indeed, He is the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful.
Indeed, the tree of ‘Zaqqum’
Will be the food of the sinful,
Like the murky oil boiling in the bellies.
Like the boiling of scalding water.
(It will be said): "Seize him and thrust him into the midst of ‘Hellfire’.
Then pour over his head the chastisement of scalding water."
(It will be said), “Savor! Indeed, you are the mighty, the generous!
Indeed, this is what you used to doubt.”
Indeed, The ‘Pious’ (whose faith is unfeigned) will be in a safety place
In gardens and springs,
Clothed in fine silk and rich fabric, sitting face to face with one another.
Thus, (will it be). We will wed them to fair women with beautiful wide, lustrous eyes.
They will enjoy therein all kinds of fruits, in perfect peace and tranquility.
They will taste no death therein, except the first death. And He will save them from the chastisement of ‘Hellfire.
As a Bounty from your Lord! This is indeed the ultimate success and the supreme one..
Verily, We have made this (‘Qur’ān’) easy in your tongue so that they may be able to remember.
Wait then, (O ‘Muhammad’); indeed, they (too) are waiting.
