O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)
Arise and deliver thy warning
And thy Lord do thou magnify
And thy garments keep free from stain
And all abomination shun
Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)
But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant
Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded
That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,
Far from easy for those without Faith
Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!
To whom I granted resources in abundance
And sons to be by his side!
To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable
Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);
By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory
Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities
For he thought and he plotted;
And woe to him! How he plotted!
Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!
Then he looked round
Then he frowned and he scowled
Then he turned back and was haughty
Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old
"This is nothing but the word of a mortal!"
Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire
And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is
Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!
Darkening and changing the colour of man
Over it are Nineteen
And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind
Nay, verily: By the Moon
And by the Night as it retreateth
And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,
This is but one of the mighty (portents)
A warning to mankind,
To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;
Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds
Except the Companions of the Right Hand
(They will be) in Gardens (of Delight): they will question each other
And (ask) of the Sinners
"What led you into Hell Fire?"
They will say: "We were not of those who prayed
"Nor were we of those who fed the indigent
"But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers
"And we used to deny the Day of Judgment
"Until there came to us (the Hour) that is certain."
Then will no intercession of (any) intercessors profit them
Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from admonition?
As if they were affrighted asses
Fleeing from a lion
Forsooth, each one of them wants to be given scrolls (of revelation) spread out
By no means! But they fear not the Hereafter
Nay, this surely is an admonition
Let any who will, keep it in remembrance
But none will keep it in remembrance except as Allah wills: He is the Lord of Righteousness, and the Lord of Forgiveness
