By this Book, which reveals the (ultimate truth).
We sent it down on a Blessed Night. We truthfully are ever warning.
On this night, every wise command is made distinct.
A command from Us, We truthfully are ever sending Messengers
As a Mercy from your Lord. Most certainly He is All-hearing and All-knowing.
(Allâh is) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them if you do have Absolute Faith.
There is no other God beside Him. He is the One true God Who gives life and causes death. He is your Lord and the Lord of your fore-fathers.
Nay, but they harbour doubts, playing.
Then wait for the day when the sky brings dense smoke,
Enveloping the people. This is an agonizing chastisement.
(They will say): "Our Lord! We pledge to affirm our Faith if You will deliver us from this deadly peril!"
How can this (deadly peril) awaken their hearts (at the last minute) when a Messenger has already come to them (with the Full Knowledge of Truth)?
Yet they turned away from him and said: “A lunatic, taught by others."
We shall indeed deliver you from the deadly peril for a while but truly you will revert (to your persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth).
On the day when We will seize them with the most fierce seizing: we will definitely inflict retribution.
And verily We tried the clan of Pharaoh before them: An honorable Messenger came to them,
Saying: “Deliver to me the servants of Allâh, I am truly faithful Messenger (of Allâh) to you.”
Do not (venture to) display an arrogant attitude towards the Authority of Allâh. Surely, I have come to you with the evidence of Truth.
And lo! I truly seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord lest you stone me to death.
But if you do not trust me, then at least stay away from me.”
Then he called upon his Lord: “These are Ungodly Sinners.”
Then (his Lord commanded): “Then set out with My servants by night. Most surely, you will be followed,
And leave the sea behind at rest. Surely they are a host doomed to be drowned".
How many gardens and fountains did they leave behind,
As well as cornfields, luxury homes,
And other bounties which they enjoyed.
This is how We caused all these things to be inherited by other people.
Neither the sky nor the earth shed a tear over them; nor were they reprieved.
Verily We saved the Children of Israel from the humiliating torment,
Inflicted by Pharaoh. Surely he was haughty and one of the prodigals.
We chose them, out of a knowledge, above all the beings.
We gave them of the Signs that in which there was a perilous trail.
Verily these do say:
"There is naught but our first death. And we shall not be resurrected.
So bring back our fore-fathers if you are truthful.
Are they better or the folk of Tubba and those who were before them whom We destroyed? We destroyed them because they were truly Ungodly Sinners.
It was not in play that We created the heavens or the earth, or all that is between them.
We created them not except for a specific reason, but most of them don’t know.
Most surely, the Decisive Day is the term for them all,
The day when no friend will be able to avail his friend in aught, nor will they be helped,
Except for the one to whom Allâh will show (His) mercy. Most certainly, He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful.
Surely the tree of Zaqqum
Will be the food of the sinful,
Like the murky oil boiling in the bellies.
Like the boiling of scalding water.
(It will be said): "Seize him and thrust him into the midst of Hellfire.
Then pour over his head the chastisement of scalding water."
(It will be said): “Savor! surely, you are the mighty, the generous!
Verily this is what you used to doubt.”
Indeed, the Pious will be in a secure place
In gardens and springs,
Clothed in fine silk and rich fabric, sitting face to face with one another.
Even so We will wed them to fair women with beautiful wide, lustrous eyes.
They will enjoy therein different types of fruits in perfect peace and tranquility.
They shall not taste therein death except the first death, and He will deliver them from the punishment of the Hellfire
As a Bounty from your Lord! This is indeed the ultimate success and the supreme one.
Verily, We have made this (Qur’ān) easy in your tongue so that they may take close heed.
Now, therefore, await (their doom), for they are awaiting (your death) .
