Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Cloaked One, The Man Wearing a Cloak, The Clothed One(al-Mudathir)
74:1 O enwrapped (Beloved!)
74:2 Rise and give warning (to the people).
74:3 And glorify the Greatnesss (and Majesty) of your Lord.
74:4 And (always) keep your (visible and spiritual) attire purified and cleansed (as before).
74:5 And keep away from the idols (and sins as usual).
74:6 And do not do a favour (to anyone with the purpose of) seeking more from him.
74:7 And observe patience for the sake of your Lord.
74:8 Then when the Trumpet will be blown (a second time),
74:9 So that Day (the Day of Resurrection) will be an extremely hard day,
74:10 Not at all easy for the disbelievers.
74:11 Leave Me (to take revenge) on him whom I have created alone,
74:12 And I provided him wealth in abundance,
74:13 And (gave) him sons remaining present (before him),
74:14 And granted him affluence (in sources of luxury).
74:15 Yet he desires that I should give him more.
74:16 No way! He has certainly been inimical to Our Revelations.
74:17 Soon I shall afflict him with (the punishment of) a severe toil.
74:18 Surely, he reflected and devised a plot.
74:19 So let (Allah’s) curse be on him! How he plotted!
74:20 Let again (Allah’s) curse be on him! How he plotted!
74:21 Then he pondered (over his scheme again).
74:22 Then he frowned and twisted his face.
74:23 Then he turned back (from the truth) and showed arrogance.
74:24 Then he said: ‘This (Qur’an) is nothing but magic which is being transmitted from the past (magicians).
74:25 This (Qur’an) is nothing (else) but the words of a human being.’
74:26 I will soon cast him into Hell.
74:27 And who has told you what Saqar (the Fire of Hell) is?
74:28 That (is the Fire which) does not spare, nor does it leave out.
74:29 (That) scorches the skin and blackens it.
74:30 There are nineteen (angels appointed as guards) over it.
74:31 And We have appointed only angels as guards of Hell. And We have fixed their number only as a trial for the disbelievers so that the People of the Book may believe with certitude (that the Qur’an and the Prophethood of Muhammad [blessings and peace be upon him] is a truth because the same number was given in their scriptures as well), and that the faith of the believers may further be strengthened (with this confirmation), and that the People of the Book and the believers may not doubt (its veracity), and that those having a disease (of hypocrisy) in their hearts and the disbelievers may say: ‘What does Allah intend by this example (of number)?’ In this way, Allah holds astray whom He wills, and guides aright whom He wills (with the same stroke). And no one knows the armies of your Lord except Him. And this (description of Hell is nothing else) but an admonition to mankind.
74:32 Yes! By the moon (whose increase, decrease and disappearance is evidence),
74:33 And by the night when it backs away to depart,
74:34 And by the morning when it brightens,
74:35 Surely, this (Hell) is one of the greatest calamities.
74:36 It is a warning to mankind,
74:37 For any of you who seeks to advance forward (in piety) or who lags behind (trapped in evil);
74:38 Everyone is held in pledge for (the deeds) that he has earned,
74:39 Except for those on the Right Side.
74:40 (They) will be in Gardens and will be asking one another,
74:41 About the evildoers.
74:42 (And they will say:) ‘What has brought you into Hell?’
74:43 They will say: ‘We were not of those who used to offer Prayers.
74:44 Nor did we feed the poor.
74:45 And we indulged in vain activities with those who had cast themselves into vain activities.
74:46 And we rejected the Day of Reward and Punishment,
74:47 Until that (death), which was certain to come, came upon us.’
74:48 So (now) the intercession of the intercessors will not be of any benefit to them.
74:49 Then what is the matter with these (disbelievers that even then) they turn away from the Reminder,
74:50 As if they were startled (wild) donkeys,
74:51 Fleeing away from a lion?
74:52 In fact, every one of them desires that he should be given (directly) open scrolls of (heavenly) scriptures.
74:53 That is not possible at all. Rather (the fact is that) they fear not the Last Day.
74:54 There is no doubt that this (Qur’an) is a Reminder.
74:55 So whoever wills may remember it.
74:56 And they will not remember (it) unless Allah so wills. He is the One to Whom fear (and righteousness) is due, and He alone is the Lord of forgiveness.
