O’ you who are covered up with your mantel!
Praise the glory of your Lord
And Purify your garments
Continue to abandon idols
Confer not a favor so as to acquire more.
And endure patiently for the sake of your Lord.
When the Trumpet is blown,
Then that day will be an arduous day-
Far from easy for those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth.
Leave to Me- (O' Prophet)- the one I created all by Myself,
And granted him extensive wealth
And children to be by his side.
I made his life run smoothly and comfortably.
Yet he desires that I should give more!
By no means! He has been truly stubborn to What We have revealed.
I will compel him to face a severe torment!
Verily He thought hard and contemplated.
Let him be deprived of Allâh's Mercy- How he contemplated!
And once more, let him be deprived of Allâh's Mercy- How he contemplated!
Then he frowned and scowled,
Then he turned his back and displayed an arrogant attitude,
Then he said: "This is nothing but mere magical incantation from the magic of the ancients.
This is not more than a word of human being."
I shall cast him into Gehenna.
And what will make you know exactly what Gehenna is?
It neither spares nor leaves behind!
It scorches the skin.
Over it, there are nineteen (Angels as its guards & keepers).
And We have not made the wardens of the Fire except Angels. And We have not made their number except as a temptation for those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth so that the people of the Book will be convinced (that this Qurʾān is absolutely the Word of Allâh) and the Faith of those who adhere to absolute Monotheism will be invigorated. And both the people of the Book and those who live by Faith will feel certain. And that those in whose hearts harbour doubts and the spiritual dead and blind will say: “What does Allâh mean by this parable?” This is how Allâh leaves astray whom He wills, and illuminates the path of whom He wills. And none really knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of (Gehenna) is no other than a warning to the people.
No indeed, by the moon,
By the night when it retreats,
And by daybreak when it coruscates,
Verily (Gehenna) is one of the greatest (tribulations),
A severe warning to the people,
To him among you who desires to go forward or to remain behind.
Every human person is held in pledge for what he earns
Except for the ones on the right hand
Who will be in Gardens, asking one another
About the Ungodly Sinners (who will then be asked):
”How did you end up in Hell?”
They will say: "We were not among those who used to pray,
Neither did we use to feed the poor.
We used to indulge in vain disputes along with others.
And we used to deny the Day of Judgment,
Till the inevitable reality- (death)- overtook us.”
So the pleas of intercessors will be of no avail to them.
Now, what is the matter with them that they are running away from the Truth
As if they were frightened donkeys
Running away from a lion?!
Yes, every one of them desires that he would be given expanded scrolls.
No! But they do not fear the (outcomes of the) Hereafter!
No! Indeed this Qur'ān is a Book of Enlightenment- (Revelation of Truth)
So whoever wills may take close heed.
But they will not be heedful unless Allâh wills: He is the Lord of the Unfeigned Piety and the Lord of Forgiveness.
