74:1  O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)
74:2  Arise and deliver thy warning
74:3  And thy Lord do thou magnify
74:4  And thy garments keep free from stain
74:5  And all abomination shun
74:6  Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)
74:7  But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant
74:8  Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded
74:9  That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,
74:10  Far from easy for those without Faith
74:11  Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!
74:12  To whom I granted resources in abundance
74:13  And sons to be by his side!
74:14  To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable
74:15  Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);
74:16  By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory
74:17  Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities
74:18  For he thought and he plotted;
74:19  And woe to him! How he plotted!
74:20  Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!
74:21  Then he looked round
74:22  Then he frowned and he scowled
74:23  Then he turned back and was haughty
74:24  Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old
74:25  "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!"
74:26  Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire
74:27  And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is
74:28  Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!
74:29  Darkening and changing the colour of man
74:30  Over it are Nineteen
74:31  And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doub ts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth God intend by this ?" Thus doth God leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: an d none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind
74:32  Nay, verily: By the Moon
74:33  And by the Night as it retreateth
74:34  And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,
74:35  This is but one of the mighty (portents)
74:36  A warning to mankind,
74:37  To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;
74:38  Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds
74:39  Except the Companions of the Right Hand
74:40  (They will be) in Gardens (of Delight): they will question each other
74:41  And (ask) of the Sinners
74:42  "What led you into Hell Fire?"
74:43  They will say: "We were not of those who prayed
74:44  "Nor were we of those who fed the indigent
74:45  "But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers
74:46  "And we used to deny the Day of Judgment
74:47  "Until there came to us (the Hour) that is certain."
74:48  Then will no intercession of (any) intercessors profit them
74:49  Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from admonition?
74:50  As if they were affrighted asses
74:51  Fleeing from a lion
74:52  Forsooth, each one of them wants to be given scrolls (of revelation) spread out
74:53  By no means! But they fear not the Hereafter
74:54  Nay, this surely is an admonition
74:55  Let any who will, keep it in remembrance
74:56  But none will keep it in remembrance except as God wills: He is the Lord of Righteousness, and the Lord of Forgiveness
