44:1  Haa, Miim
44:2  By the Book that makes things clear
44:3  We sent it down during a blessed night, for We wish to warn
44:4  In the night is made clear every affair of wisdom
44:5  By command, from Our presence, for We send revelation
44:6  As mercy from your Lord, for He hears and knows all things
44:7  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if you have an assured faith
44:8  There is no god but He. It is He Who gives life and gives death, the Guardian Evolver to you and your earliest ancestors
44:9  Yet they play around in doubt
44:10  Then watch for the day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke, plainly visible
44:11  Smothering the people. This will be a terrible penalty
44:12  “Our Lord, remove the penalty from us, for we really do believe.
44:13  How can there be a reminder for them, seeing that a messenger explaining things clearly has already come to them
44:14  Yet they turn away from him and say, “Tutored by others, a person possessed.
44:15  We will indeed remove the penalty for a while and truly you will return
44:16  One day We will seize you with a mighty onslaught. We will indeed exact retribution
44:17  We did, before them, try the people of Pharaoh. There came to them a messenger honorabl
44:18  Saying, “Restore to me the servants of God. I am to you a messenger worthy of all trust
44:19  “And do not be arrogant as against God, for I come to you with clear authority
44:20  “For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me
44:21  “If you do not believe, at least keep away from me.
44:22  Then he cried to his Lord, “These are indeed people given to harmful deeds.
44:23  “March forth with My servants by night, for you are sure to be pursued
44:24  “And leave the sea divided, for they are an army destined to be drowned.
44:25  How many were the gardens and springs they left behind
44:26  And corn-fields, and impressive buildings
44:27  And wealth which they had taken such pride
44:28  All this We made other people inherit
44:29  And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them, nor were they given respite
44:30  We did deliver the Children of Israel from a crushing punishment
44:31  Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant and one of the transgressors
44:32  And We chose them above the nations knowingly
44:33  And granted them signs in which there were a manifest trial
44:34  As for these, they say humorously
44:35  “There is nothing beyond our first death, and we will not be raised again
44:36  “Then bring back our ancestors, if what you say is true.
44:37  What, are they better than the people of Touba, and those who were before them? We caused them to perish because they were guilty of harmful deeds
44:38  We did not create the heavens, the earth, and all between them, for mere play
44:39  We did not create them except for just ends, but most of them do not understand
44:40  Indeed the day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them
44:41  The day no protector can avail his client in anything, and no help can they receive
44:42  Except those who receive God's mercy, for He is Exalted in Might, the Merciful Redeemer
44:43  Indeed the tree of Zaqqum
44:44  Will be the food of the sinful
44:45  Like molten brass, it will boil in their insides
44:46  Like the boiling of scalding water
44:47  “Seize him and drag him into the middle of the blazing fire
44:48  “Then pour over his head the penalty of boiling water
44:49  “Taste this. Truly were you mighty, full of pride
44:50  “Indeed this is what you used to doubt.
44:51  As for the righteous, they will be in a position of security
44:52  Among gardens and springs
44:53  Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, they will face each other
44:54  And We will join them to companions with beautiful eyes
44:55  There they can call for every kind of fruit in peace and security
44:56  Nor will they taste death there, only the first death, and He will preserve them from the penalty of the blazing fire
44:57  As a bounty from your Lord. That will be the ultimate achievement
44:58  Indeed, We have made this easy in your tongue, in order that they may take heed
44:59  So wait and watch, for they too are waiting
