74:1  O THOU, ENWRAPPED in thy mantle
74:2  Arise and warn
74:3  Thy Lord - magnify Him
74:4  Thy raiment - purify it
74:5  The abomination - flee it
74:6  And bestow not favours that thou mayest receive again with increase
74:7  And for thy Lord wait thou patiently
74:8  For when there shall be a trump on the trumpet
74:9  That shall be a distressful day
74:10  A day, to the Infidels, devoid of ease
74:11  Leave me alone to deal with him whom I have created
74:12  And on whom I have bestowed vast riches
74:13  And sons dwelling before him
74:14  And for whom I have smoothed all things smoothly down;
74:15  Yet desireth he that I should add more
74:16  But no! because to our signs he is a fo
74:17  I will lay grievous woes upon him
74:18  For he plotted and he planned
74:19  May he be cursed! How he planned
74:20  Again, may he be cursed! How he planned
74:21  Then looked he around him
74:22  Then frowned and scowled
74:23  Then turned his back and swelled with disdain
74:24  And said, "This is merely magic that will be wrought
74:25  It is merely the word of a mortal."
74:26  We will surely cast him into Hell-fire
74:27  And who shall teach thee what Hell-fire is
74:28  It leaveth nought, it spareth nought
74:29  Blackening the skin
74:30  Over it are nineteen angels
74:31  None but angels have we made guardians of the fire: nor have we made this to be their number but to perplex the unbelievers, and that they who possess the Scriptures may be certain of the truth of the Koran, and that they who believe may increase their faith; And that they to whom the Scriptures have been given, and the believers, may not doubt; And that the infirm of heart and the unbelievers may say, What meaneth God by this parable? Thus God misleadeth whom He will, and whom He will doth He guide aright: and none knoweth the armies of thy Lord but Himself: and this is no other than a warning to mankind
74:32  Nay, by the Moon
74:33  By the Night when it retreateth
74:34  By the Morn when it brighteneth
74:35  Hell is one of the most grievous woes
74:36  Fraught with warning to man
74:37  To him among you who desireth to press forward, or to remain behind
74:38  For its own works lieth every soul in pledge
74:39  But they of God's right han
74:40  In their garden
74:41  shall ask of the wicked;
74:42  "What hath cast you into Hell-fire?"
74:43  They will say, "We were not of those who prayed
74:44  And we were not of those who fed the poor
74:45  And we plunged into vain disputes with vain disputers
74:46  And we rejected as a lie, the day of reckoning
74:47  Till the certainty came upon us"
74:48  And intercession of the interceders shall not avail them
74:49  Then what hath come to them that they turn aside from the Warnin
74:50  As if they were affrighted asse
74:51  fleeing from a lion
74:52  And every one of them would fain have open pages given to him out of Heaven
74:53  It shall not be. They fear not the life to come
74:54  It shall not be. For this Koran is warning enough
74:55  And whoso will, it warneth him
74:56  But not unless God please, shall they be warned. Meet is He to be feared. Meet is forgiveness in Him
