Maulana Muhammad Ali rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 Beneficent God
44:2 By the Book that makes it manifest
44:3 We revealed it on a blessed night -- truly We are ever warning
44:4 Therein is made clear every affair full of wisdom -
44:5 A command from Us -- truly We are ever sending messengers -
44:6 A mercy from thy Lord -- truly He is the Hearing, the Knowing
44:7 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure
44:8 There is no God but He; He gives life and causes death -- your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore
44:9 Nay, in doubt they sport
44:10 So wait for the day when the heaven brings a clear drought
44:11 Enveloping men. This is a painful chastisement
44:12 Our Lord, remove from us the chastisement -- surely we are believers
44:13 When will they be reminded? And a Messenger has indeed come, making clear
44:14 Yet they turned away from him and said: One taught (by others); a madman
44:15 We shall remove the chastisement a little, (but) you will surely return (to evil)
44:16 On the day when We seize (them) with the most violent seizing; surely We shall exact retribution
44:17 And certainly We tried before them Pharaoh’s people and a nobel messenger came to them
44:18 Saying: Deliver to me the servants of Allah. Surely I am a faithful messenger to you
44:19 And exalt not yourselves against Allah. Surely I bring to you a clear authority
44:20 And I take refuge with my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me to death
44:21 And if you believe not in me, leave me alone
44:22 Then he called upon his Lord: These are a guilty people
44:23 So go forth with My servants by night; surely you will be pursued
44:24 And leave the sea behind calm. Surely they are a host to be drowned
44:25 How many the gardens and springs they left behind
44:26 And cornfields and noble places
44:27 And goodly things wherein they rejoiced
44:28 Thus (it was). And We made other people inherit them
44:29 So the heaven and the earth wept not for them, nor were they respited
44:30 And We indeed delivered the Children of Israel from the abasing chastisement
44:31 From Pharaoh. Surely he was haughty, prodigal
44:32 And certainly We chose them above the nations, having knowledge
44:33 And We gave them signs wherein was clear blessing
44:34 These do indeed say
44:35 There is naught but our first death and we shall not be raised again
44:36 So bring our fathers (back), of you are truthful
44:37 Are they better or the people of Tubba’, and those before them? We destroyed them, for surely they were guilty
44:38 And We did not create the heavens and the earth and that which is between them in sport
44:39 We created them but with truth, but most of them know not
44:40 Surely the day of Decision is the term for them all
44:41 The day when friend will avail friend in naught, nor will they be helped
44:42 Save those on whom Allah has mercy. Surely He is the Mighty, the Merciful
44:43 Surely the tree of Zaqqu
44:44 Is the food of the sinful
44:45 Like molten brass; it seethes in (their) bellie
44:46 Like boiling water
44:47 Seize him, then drag him into the midst of hell
44:48 Then pour on his head of the torment of boiling water -
44:49 Taste -- thou art forsooth the mighty, the honourable
44:50 Surely this is what you doubted
44:51 Those who keep their duty are indeed in a secure place -
44:52 In gardens and springs
44:53 Wearing fine and thick silk, facing one another -
44:54 Thus (shall it be). And We shall join them to pure, beautiful ones
44:55 They call therein for every fruit in security -
44:56 They taste not therein death, except the first death; and He will save them from the chastisement of hell -
44:57 A grace from thy Lord. This is the great achievement
44:58 So We have made it easy in thy tongue that they may mind
44:59 Wait then; surely they (too) are waiting
