all the commands come from Ourselves, We send Message and messengers,
a favour from Your Lord – the Hearer, the Knower,
the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth and what is between them – if only you are firm believers
There is no god but Him, He gives life and death, Your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.
, they are in doubt, dilly-dallying.
So wait for a Day when the sky brings clouds of smoke
that will cover up people and they will cry
: “This is painful punishment!
Our Lord, relieve us, and we will believe.”
They will not learn a lesson even when a Messenger has come to them,
they turn away from him and say, “He’s been taught by someone and is possessed!”
Shortly We shall remove the punishment, but they will turn back to their disbelief
The Day We seize them brutally, We shall take full revenge
Long ago We tested Pharaoh’s people, when a noble messenger came saying to them,
“Hand over to me the servants of Allah; I am a trustworthy messenger sent to you.
Don’t regard yourself greater than Allah; I’ve come with distinct authority to you.
I’ve sought protection from my Lord and your Lord from your abuse;
if you don’t believe me then leave me alone.”
Musa called out to His Lord, “These are wicked people.”
So We ordered him
: “Take my servants by night, though
you will be chased,
the sea leave it parted, they will be a drowned army.”
They, the Pharaoh’s lot,
left behind many gardens, springs,
cornfields and spacious homes and
clubs where they had fun.
We raised other people to inherit them,
neither the Heavens nor the Earth wept over them, they weren’t given respite
We delivered the Israelites from the shameful punishment
of the Pharaoh; he was arrogant and had gone beyond limits.
We knowingly favoured them above other people of their time
We showed them many miracles; in them was a clear test
“There is only one death for us; we won’t be resurrected.
Why don’t you bring to life our forefathers if you are truthful.”
Are they better, or the people of Tubba and the people before them? We destroyed them since they were wicked.
We didn’t create the Heavens and the Earth and what is between them as an amusement park
We created them for a purpose, but most don’t know.
The Day of Decision is the fixed time for all of them,
a Day when no friend will benefit a friend in the slightest, nor will they be helped,
except anyone Allah wants to be kind to. He is the Mighty, the Caring
will be the sinners’ food,
like molten copper that boils in the stomach,
bubbling like boiling water.
It will be said: “Seize him and drag him to the middle of Hell!
Then pour the punishment of boiling water over his head.
Taste it! You were the honourable influential one!
This is what you doubted!
The pious will live
in a safe place;
of gardens and water fountains,
wearing embroidered silken dress enjoying each other’s company.
That’s how it will be, We shall wed them with pure spouses with gorgeous eyes.
Safe and satisfied, they will enjoy every kind of fruit.
They will taste death only once and will be protected from the punishment of Hell,
a bounty from your Lord! That is the supreme victory.
We made the Quran easy to understand in your language, so they may pay attention.
So wait, they’re waiting too
