Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The Cloaked One, The Man Wearing a Cloak, The Clothed One(al-Mudathir)
74:1 O you folded up [in inactivity]!
74:2 Arise and warn!
74:3 And proclaim the greatness of your Lord!
74:4 And keep your garments clean!
74:5 And shun the dirt!
74:6 And expect no [material] gain [for your own self]!
74:7 And, for your Lord, be patient!
74:8 And [warn that] when the Trumpet is blown,
74:9 That Day [the day when the Trumpet is blown] will be a difficult day!
74:10 Not [at all] an easy day for those who suppress the Truth.
74:11 Leave to Me what I Myself created [human being] without any help from anyone else!
74:12 And I created for him resources in abundance
74:13 And children present by his side
74:14 And I made things easy for him!
74:15 Yet he is greedy for more!
74:16 Nay! To Our Verses/signs he has been obstinately and illogically opposed!
74:17 Soon will I make him suffer hardship!
74:18 He did indeed think and decide.
74:19 May he be destroyed — how [very wrongfully] did he decide!
74:20 Again, be he destroyed — how [very wrongfully] did he decide!
74:21 Then he looked
74:22 And he frowned and he glowered with intense hatred!
74:23 Then he turned back and was proud!
74:24 Then he said, "This is nothing but traditional magic."
74:25 "— Nothing but word of the mortal man!"
74:26 Soon will I make him suffer Hell!
74:27 And what do you know what Hell is?
74:28 Neither does it let be, nor does it let go!
74:29 It burns the human skin so as to blacken it!
74:30 Nineteen [angels] to guard over it [Hell].
74:31 And We have appointed none but angels as Guardians of the Fire. And We have not fixed their number [], but only as a trial for those who suppress the Truth, and as a means of certainty for the People of the Book and increase in Faith for the Believers, so that no doubts are left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the suppressors of the Truth may say, "What intention does Allah have by this issue [of appointing only guards for hundreds of thousands of sinners put in Hell]?" Thus does Allah send astray whom He wills and guide whom He wills. And none but He knows [the enormity of] your Lord's forces! And this [Qur'aan] is nothing but Admonition/Reminder for mankind.h,
74:32 Nay, verily, by the Moon!
74:33 And by the Night as it recedes!
74:34 And by the Dawn as it brightens!
74:35 This [Qur'aan] certainly indeed is the One Great Thing,
74:36 A warning to mankind.
74:37 To any of you who wishes to go forward [on the Right Path], or to fall back [into falsehood.]
74:38 Every soul is pledged against what it earns,
74:39 Except for the people on the Right.h
74:40 In Gardens (of Delight), they will ask
74:41 The Sinners,
74:42 "What led you into Hell?"
74:43 They will say, "We were not among those who prayed;"
74:44 "And we were not among those who fed the poor;"
74:45 "But we used to indulge in vain talks in company of other people;"
74:46 "And we used to deny the Judgment Day,"
74:47 "Until there came to us the Certainty."
74:48 The intercession of the intercessors shall be of no avail to them then!
74:49 Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from the divine Counsel [Qur'aan]
74:50 As if they were scared donkeys
74:51 Fleeing from a fierce beast?
74:52 They would rather want scrolls (of revelation) rolled out to every one of them separately!
74:53 But no! They fear not the Hereafter.
74:54 Nay, this [Qur'aan] indeed is the divine Counsel!
74:55 Let any, who will, take heed!
74:56 And none takes heed unless Allah so wills: He is the Embodiment of the virtue of piety, and the embodiment of the virtue of forgiveness.
