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