44:1  Ha, Meem
44:2  By the Enlightening Scripture
44:3  We have revealed it on a Blessed Night—We have warned
44:4  In it is distinguished every wise command
44:5  A decree from Us. We have been sending messages
44:6  As mercy from your Lord. He is the Hearer, the Knower
44:7  Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you know for sure
44:8  There is no god but He. He gives life and causes death—your Lord and Lord of your ancestors of old
44:9  Yet they play around in doubt
44:10  So watch out for the Day when the sky produces a visible smoke
44:11  Enveloping mankind; this is a painful punishment
44:12  'Our Lord, lift the torment from us, we are believers.'
44:13  But how can they be reminded? An enlightening messenger has already come to them
44:14  But they turned away from him, and said, 'Educated, but crazy!'
44:15  We will ease the punishment a little, but you will revert
44:16  The Day when We launch the Great Assault—We will avenge
44:17  Before them We tested the people of Pharaoh; a noble messenger came to them
44:18  Saying, 'Hand over God's servants to me. I am an honest messenger to you.'
44:19  And, 'Do not exalt yourselves above God. I come to you with clear authority
44:20  I have taken refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me
44:21  But if you do not believe in me, keep away from me.'
44:22  He appealed to his Lord: 'These are a sinful people.'
44:23  'Set out with My servants by night—you will be followed
44:24  And cross the sea quickly; they are an army to be drowned.'
44:25  How many gardens and fountains did they leave behind
44:26  And plantations, and splendid buildings
44:27  And comforts they used to enjoy
44:28  So it was; and We passed it on to another people.
44:29  Neither heaven nor earth wept over them, nor were they reprieved
44:30  And We delivered the Children of Israel from the humiliating persecution
44:31  From Pharaoh. He was a transgressing tyrant.
44:32  And We chose them knowingly over all other people
44:33  And We gave them many signs, in which was an obvious test
44:34  These people say
44:35  'There is nothing but our first death, and we will not be resurrected
44:36  Bring back our ancestors, if you are truthful.'
44:37  Are they better, or the people of Tubba and those before them? We annihilated them. They were evildoers
44:38  We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them to play
44:39  We created them only for a specific purpose, but most of them do not know
44:40  The Day of Sorting Out is the appointed time for them all
44:41  The Day when no friend will avail a friend in any way, and they will not be helped
44:42  Except for him upon whom God has mercy. He is the Mighty, the Merciful
44:43  The Tree of Bitterness
44:44  The food of the sinner
44:45  Like molten lead; boiling inside the bellies
44:46  Like the boiling of seething water
44:47  Seize him and drag him into the midst of Hell
44:48  Then pour over his head the suffering of the Inferno
44:49  Taste! You who were powerful and noble
44:50  This is what you used to doubt
44:51  As for the righteous, they will be in a secure place
44:52  Amidst gardens and springs
44:53  Dressed in silk and brocade, facing one another
44:54  So it is, and We will wed them to lovely companions
44:55  They will call therein for every kind of fruit, in peace and security
44:56  Therein they will not taste death, beyond the first death; and He will protect them from the torment of Hell
44:57  A favor from your Lord. That is the supreme salvation
44:58  We made it easy in your language, so that they may remember
44:59  So wait and watch. They too are waiting and watching
