By the heaven holding the big stars!
And by the Promised Day (of judgment)!
And by the witnesses and that which is being witnessed!
Cursed be the people of the ditch,
who lit the fire fed with fuel
and they sat by it (fire),
to watch what they were doing to the believers.
And they took revenge on them for no other reason except that they believed in Allah, the All-Mighty, the Praise-worthy,
to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is witness over everything.
Surely, those who persecute the believing men and believing women and don’t repent (to Allah), then they will receive the punishment of hell and they will have the punishment of the burning fire.
Surely, those who believe and do righteous deeds, they will have gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise). That is the great success.
Surely, (O Muhammad) the grip (punishment) of your Lord is very severe.
Surely, it is He Who originates (created everything) and will repeat it (on the Day of Resurrection).
Allah is Forgiving, the Loving (to the pious),
the Owner of the Throne, the Glorious
and (He) does whatever He intends (or wills).
Has the story reached you of the host
of Pharaoh and Thamud?
Nay! The disbelievers (persist) in denying (the truth),
and Allah has encompassed them from all around.
Nay! This is a Glorious Qur’an,
(inscribed) in the preserved tablet (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz).
