Dr. Munir Munshey rendition of Surah The Cloaked One, The Man Wearing a Cloak, The Clothed One(al-Mudathir)
74:1 Oh you, wrapped up (in a cloak)!
74:2 Get up and warn (people),
74:3 And announce that your Lord is the Greatest!
74:4 Cleanse and keep your clothes purified.
74:5 And keep clear away from filth.
74:6 Do not seek worldly gains (in return) for favors done.
74:7 Endure (adversity) with patience, for the sake of your Lord.
74:8 (Warn everyone that) the day the trumpet sounds,
74:9 Would truly be a long hard day,
74:10 Not at all an easy day for the unbelievers.
74:11 So, let Me handle the one whom I created all alone,
74:12 And, I granted him wealth (and resources) in abundance,
74:13 And sons to stand by him.
74:14 I made life comfortable and easy for him.
74:15 Yet, he (greedily) desires that I should grant him still more.
74:16 Of course not! Indeed, he was obstinate (and ardent) in opposing Our verses!
74:17 Soon, I will impose a dreadful torment upon him.
74:18 Indeed, he pondered and plotted.
74:19 Cursed is he, the plot he hatched!
74:20 Once again, damned is he! What a plot he hatched!
74:21 Then, he looked around (haughtily),
74:22 Frowned, and signaled his displeasure!
74:23 Finally, he turned back and displayed arrogance.
74:24 Then said, "It is nothing but (the same old) magic handed down from antiquity."
74:25 "It, (the Qur´an), is merely the word of a mortal."
74:26 Soon, I will fling him (and roast him) in that scorcher _ (the hell).
74:27 And what do you think the scorcher is?
74:28 It would not spare (anything or anyone), nor would it leave them alone (by finishing them off).
74:29 It will (scorch and) shrivel the human flesh.
74:30 And over that (scorcher) are nineteen (angels standing guard).
74:31 We have chosen to appoint the angels as wardens over hell, and We let their number be a trial for the unbelievers. So that, those given the scriptures may believe, and the believers may increase in their belief. Both _ those given the scriptures and the believers _ may not entertain doubts. Yet, those with disease in their hearts, and the unbelievers, would still say, "What does Allah mean by this example?" Thus, Allah leads astray whom He wants, and guides whom He wants. No one knows the forces of Allah except He. This is nothing but a reminder for the mortals.
74:32 No! (I) swear by the moon!
74:33 The night, as it retreats.
74:34 And the dawn as it glows!
74:35 Indeed, it (hell) is surely one of the mightiest (signs).
74:36 A warning for the mortals!
74:37 (Now), anyone of you who wishes may proceed (towards excellence), or lag behind.
74:38 Every soul is (mortgaged and) held (as security) against the (evil) deeds it has wrought.
74:39 Except (the righteous ones), those on the right hand.
74:40 (They would be) in the paradise; (and) they shall ask,
74:41 The criminals,
74:42 "What has caused you to end up in this scorcher?"
74:43 They would reply, "We were not among those who established the ´salat´."
74:44 "Nor among those who fed (and cared for) the poor and the destitute."
74:45 "(Instead), we joined those who indulged in idle prattle (against the truth)."
74:46 "And we denied the (coming of the) Day of Judgment."
74:47 "Till the inevitable (death) came upon us!"
74:48 So, the intercession of the mediators did not help them at all.
74:49 What is the matter with them? They are turning away from the reminder!
74:50 As if they were startled donkeys,
74:51 Running away from a lion.
74:52 In fact, each one of them wants to be handed over his (very own customized) scriptures all spread out.
74:53 Not ever! The fact is, they do not fear the afterlife!
74:54 No! In fact, this (Qur´an) is (just) an admonition.
74:55 (Now) whoever wants, may heed (its warning).
74:56 But they will not heed unless Allah so wills. He is Worthy of being feared, and He is the One Who forgives!
