T.B.Irving rendition of Surah Smoke, The Evident Smoke(ad-Dukhan)
44:1 H.M.
44:2 By the Clear Book
44:3 which We sent down on a blessed night We have been warning about!
44:4 In it every wise matter is set forth
44:5 as a command from Our presence; We have been sending
44:6 mercy from your Lord. He is the Alert, Aware,
44:7 Lord of Heaven and Earth and anything in between them, if you will be convinced.
44:8 There is no deity except Him; He gives life and brings death, your Lord and the Lord of your earliest ancestors.
44:9 Instead they play around with doubt.
44:10 Watch out for the day when the sky will bring obvious smoke
44:11 to envelop mankind; this will mean painful torment:
44:12 "Our Lord, remove the torment from us; we are believers!"
44:13 Yet they had the Reminder, and an obvious messenger had already come to them.
44:14 Then they turned away from him and said: "He has been taught it; [he´s] so crazy!"
44:15 Were We to lift the torment for a while, you would still revert [to it]!
44:16 Some day We will kidnap everyone in the greatest operation; We shall be Avenged!
44:17 We tested Pharaoh´s folk before them, and a noble messenger came to them:
44:18 "Hand over God´s servants to me. I am a trustworthy messenger for you.
44:19 Do not act so haughtily concerning God: I bring you clear authority.
44:20 I have sought refuge with my Lord and your Lord, lest you cast me out.
44:21 If you do not believe in me, then keep away from me."
44:22 So he appealed to his Lord: "These are criminal folk!"
44:23 "Travel with My servants at night for you will be followed.
44:24 Leave the sea parted; they are an army who will be drowned."
44:25 How man gardens and fountains have they left behind!
44:26 And crops and a splendid position
44:27 and a life of ease they were delighted with.
44:28 Even so We let other folk inherit it from them.
44:29 Neither Heaven nor Earth wept over them, nor were they allowed to wait.
44:30 So We saved the Children of Israel from shameful torment,
44:31 from Pharaoh, who was haughty, so dissipated.
44:32 We chose them knowingly ahead of [anyone in] the Universe;
44:33 and gave them signs which contained an obvious test.
44:34 Yet the latter kept on saying:
44:35 "There is only this first death of ours; we will not be raised again.
44:36 Bring on our forefathers if you have been truthful."
44:37 Are they any better than the people of Tubba and the ones before them whom We wiped out? They were such criminals!
44:38 We did not create Heaven and Earth and anything in between them just by playing around.
44:39 We have created them both only [to reveal] the Truth, even though most of them do not realize it.
44:40 The Day for Sorting things out will mean an appointment for everyone,
44:41 a day when no patron will be able to help a favorite out in any way nor will they be supported
44:42 except for someone whom God has shown mercy to. He is the Powerful, the Merciful.
44:43 The infernal tree
44:44 will be food for the sinner;
44:45 like molten copper, it will seethe inside (their) bellies
44:46 like a bathhouse boiler:
44:47 "Take him and drag him into the midst of Hades!
44:48 Then pour some torment of scalding water over his head:
44:49 ´Taste it; you were such a powerful noble!"´
44:50 This is what you (all) were puzzling over!"´
44:51 The heedful will be in a safe position
44:52 among gardens and springs.
44:53 They will wear satin and brocade as they sit facing one another, just like that;
44:54 and We will wed them to dark-eyed damsels
44:55 They will call confidently for every kind of fruit in it.
44:56 They will not taste death there except for the very first death [they had]. He will shield them from the torment of Hades
44:57 as a boon from your Lord; that will be the supreme Achievement!
44:58 We have made it easy for your tongue [to recite] in order that they may bear this in mind.
44:59 So watch out: they too are watching!
