Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 +[ M\m.
44:2 By the clear Book
44:3 truly, We caused it to descend on a blessed night. Truly, We had been ones who warn.
44:4 Every wise command is made clear in it,
44:5 a command from Us. Truly, We had been ones who send it
44:6 as a mercy from thy Lord. Truly, He is The Hearing, The Knowing,
44:7 Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. If you had been ones who are certain.
44:8 There is no god but He. It is He Who gives life and causes to die. He is your Lord and the Lord of your ancient fathers.
44:9 Nay! They play in uncertainty.
44:10 Then, thou be on the watch for a Day when the heavens will bring a clear smoke
44:11 overcoming humanity. This is a painful punishment.
44:12 Our Lord! Remove thou the punishment from us! Truly, we are ones who believe.
44:13 What will there be as a reminder for them? A clear Messenger drew near them.
44:14 Again, they turned away from him and they said: He is one who is taught by others, one who is possessed.
44:15 Truly, We are ones who remove the punishment for a little. Truly, you are ones who revert to ingratitude.
44:16 On the Day when We will seize by force with the greatest attack, truly, We will be ones who requite.
44:17 And, certainly, We tried a folk of Pharaoh before them when there drew near them a generous Messenger:
44:18 Give back to me the servants of God, the Children of Israel. Truly, I am a trustworthy Messenger to you.
44:19 And rise not up against God. Truly, I am one who arrives with a clear authority.
44:20 Truly, I took refuge in my Lord and your Lord so that you not stone me.
44:21 But if you believe not in me, then, withdraw.
44:22 So he called on his Lord: Truly, these are a folk, ones who sin.
44:23 He said: Set thou forth with my servants by night. Truly, you will be ones who are followed.
44:24 And leave the sea calmly as it is. Truly, they will be an army, one that is drowned.
44:25 How many they left behind of gardens and springs
44:26 and crops and generous stations
44:27 and prosperity in which they had been, ones who are joyful!
44:28 And, thus, We gave it as inheritance to another folk.
44:29 And neither the heavens wept for them nor the earth nor had they been ones who are given respite.
44:30 And, certainly, We delivered the Children of Israel from the despised punishment
44:31 of Pharaoh. Truly, He had been one who exalts himself and was of the ones who are excessive.
44:32 And, certainly, We chose them with knowledge above the worlds
44:33 and gave them the signs in which there was a clear trial.
44:34 Truly, these say:
44:35 There is nothing but our first singled out death and we will not be ones who are revived.
44:36 Then, bring our fathers back if you had been ones who are sincere.
44:37 Are they better or a folk of Tubba and those who were before them? We caused them to perish. They, truly, had been ones who sin.
44:38 And We created not the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them as ones who play!
44:39 We created them not but with The Truth but most of them know not.
44:40 Truly, the Day of Decision is the time appointed for them one and all,
44:41 a Day when a defender will not avail another defender at all nor will they be helped
44:42 but him on whom God had mercy. Truly, He is The Almighty, The Compassionate.
44:43 Truly, the tree of Zaqqum
44:44 will be the food of the sinful.
44:45 Like molten copper it will bubble in the bellies,
44:46 like boiling, scalding water.
44:47 It will be said: Take him and drag him violently into the depths of hellfire.
44:48 Again, then, unloose over his head the punishment of scalding water!
44:49 Experience this! Truly, thou, thou art seemingly the mighty, the generous.
44:50 Truly, this is what you had been contesting.
44:51 Truly, the ones who are Godfearing will be in the station of trustworthiness
44:52 among Gardens and springs
44:53 wearing fine silk and brocade, ones who face one another.
44:54 Thus, it is so. We will give in marriage lovely, most beautiful eyed ones.
44:55 They will call therein for every kind of sweet fruit, ones that are safe.
44:56 They will not experience death with them but the first singled out death. And He will protect them from the punishment of hellfire,
44:57 a grace from thy Lord. That, it is the winning the sublime triumph!
44:58 Truly, We made this easy in thy language so that perhaps they will recollect.
44:59 So be on the watch! Truly, they are ones who watch.
