44:1  Ha, Meem.
44:2  By the clear, enlightening Scripture.
44:3  We revealed it on a blessed night—We’ve been warning.
44:4  On that night, every wise matter is made distinct.
44:5  A command from Us—We’ve been sending messengers.
44:6  As a mercy from your Lord—He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.
44:7  The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that’s between them—if only you had certainty.
44:8  There is no god but He. He gives life and causes death—your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors.
44:9  Yet, they are doubting, engaged in play.
44:10  Await the day when the sky will bring visible smoke.
44:11  Covering the people—this would be a severe torment.
44:12  “Our Lord, remove from us the torment; we are believers.”
44:13  How can there be for them a remembrance, when a clear Messenger has come to them?
44:14  Yet they turned away from him and said, “He is tutored, a madman.”
44:15  We will remove the torment for a while. But you will surely return.
44:16  The Day We will strike with the greatest assault—We will exact revenge.
44:17  Before them, We tested the people of Pharaoh, when a noble messenger came to them.
44:18  “Hand over to me God’s servants. I am definitely a reliable messenger to you.
44:19  And don’t exalt yourselves against God; I’ve come to you with clear authority.
44:20  I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me.
44:21  If you don’t believe me, then keep your distance from me.”
44:22  Then, he implored his Lord, “These are criminal people.”
44:23  “Depart with My servants by night—you will be pursued.
44:24  And leave the sea in stillness; they are soldiers to be drowned.”
44:25  How many gardens and springs did they leave behind?
44:26  And fields and noble sites.
44:27  And comfort wherein they were amused.
44:28  Thus, and We made it an inheritance for another people.
44:29  Neither heaven nor earth wept for them, nor were they reprieved.
44:30  We rescued the Children of Israel from the degrading torment.
44:31  From Pharaoh. He was a tyrant, an oppressor.
44:32  And We knowingly chose them over the worlds.
44:33  We gave them signs in which there were transparent trials.
44:34  Yet these people say:
44:35  “There is only our first death, and we won’t be resurrected.
44:36  Then bring back our ancestors, if you are truthful.”
44:37  Are they better than the people of Tubba and those before them? We destroyed them because they were criminals.
44:38  We didn’t create the heavens, the earth, and everything in between in play.
44:39  We created them only in truth, but most of them don’t know.
44:40  The Day of Decision is their appointed time, all of them.
44:41  The Day when no relation will avail a relation at all, nor will they be helped.
44:42  Except those on whom God has mercy. He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
44:43  The Tree of Bitterness.
44:44  The sinner’s food.
44:45  Like molten brass, it boils in the bellies.
44:46  Like the boiling of hot water.
44:47  “Grab him and drag him into the middle of the Hellfire.
44:48  Then, pour over his head from the suffering of the Inferno.
44:49  Taste! You are the powerful, the noble!
44:50  This is what you used to question.”
44:51  As for the righteous, they will be in a safe place.
44:52  Amid gardens and springs.
44:53  Clothed in fine silk and brocade, seated face to face.
44:54  Thus. And We will pair them with pure companions with beautiful eyes.
44:55  Therein, they will request every kind of fruit, in peace and tranquility.
44:56  They won’t taste death therein, except the first death. And He will shield them from the torment of Hellfire.
44:57  A favor from your Lord. This is the greatest achievement.
44:58  We’ve made it easy in your language, so they may reflect.
44:59  So remain watchful, for they too are watchful.
