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
