Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 'H. M
44:2 By the perspicuous Book
44:3 verily, we have sent it down on a blessed night;- verily, we had given warning
44:4 wherein is decided every wise affair
44:5 as an order from us. Verily, we were sending (apostles)
44:6 a mercy from thy Lord; verily, He both hears and knows
44:7 from the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between the two, if ye were but sure
44:8 There is no god but He, He quickens and He kills - your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore
44:9 Nay, they in doubt do play
44:10 But expect thou the day when the heaven shall bring obvious smok
44:11 to cover men - this is grievous torment
44:12 Our Lord! remove from us the torment; verily, we are believers
44:13 How can they have the reminder (now), when they have had a plain apostle
44:14 and when they turned their backs away from him and said, 'Taught! mad!
44:15 Verily, we will remove the torment a little, (but) ye will surely return
44:16 On the day when we will assault with the great assault, verily, we will take vengeance
44:17 And we already tried the people of Pharaoh when there came to them a noble apostle
44:18 'Send back to me God's servants; verily, I am to you a faithful apostle;
44:19 and, 'Exalt not yourselves above God; verily, I come to you with obvious authority
44:20 And, verily, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, that ye stone me not
44:21 And if ye believe not in me then let me alone!
44:22 Then he called upon his Lord, 'Verily, these are a sinful people.
44:23 So journey with my servants by night - verily, ye will be pursued
44:24 But leave the sea in quiet - verily, they are a host to be drowned
44:25 How many gardens and springs have they left
44:26 and corn lands and a noble place
44:27 and comfort wherein they did enjoy themselves
44:28 Thus - and we gave them for an inheritance to another people
44:29 And the heaven wept not for them, nor the earth, nor were they respited
44:30 But we saved the children of Israel from shameful woe!
44:31 - from Pharaoh; verily, he was haughty, one of the extravagant
44:32 And we did choose them, wittingly, above the worlds
44:33 and we gave them signs wherein was an obvious trial
44:34 Verily, these say
44:35 'It is but our first death
44:36 so bring our fathers, if ye do speak the truth!
44:37 Are they better than the people of Tubbah, and those before them? We destroyed them - verily, they were sinners
44:38 Nor did we create the heavens and the earth, and what is between the two in sport
44:39 we did but create them in truth, though most of them know it not
44:40 Verily, the day of separation is their appointed term
44:41 the day when master shall not avail client at all, nor shall they be helped
44:42 save whomsoever God shall have mercy on; verily, He is the mighty, the merciful
44:43 Verily, the Zaqqum tre
44:44 (shall be) the food of the sinful
44:45 as it were melting, shall it boil in their bellie
44:46 like the boiling of hot water!
44:47 'Take him and hale him into the midst of hell
44:48 then pour over his head the torment of hot water!
44:49 Taste! verily, thou art the mighty, the honourable
44:50 Verily, this is that whereon ye did dispute!
44:51 Verily, the pious shall be in a safe place
44:52 in gardens and springs
44:53 they shall be clad in satin and stout silk face to face
44:54 Thus!- and we will wed them to bright and large-eyed maids
44:55 They shall call therein for every fruit in safety
44:56 They shall not taste therein of death save their first death, and we will keep them from the torment of hell
44:57 Grace from thy Lord, that is the grand bliss
44:58 And we have only made it easy for thy tongue, that haply they may be mindful
44:59 Then watch thou; verily, they are watching too
