74:1  O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform)
74:2  Arise and warn
74:3  Glorify your Lord
74:4  Purify your inner self
74:5  And banish all trepidation
74:6  Do not bestow favours in expectation of return
74:7  And persevere in the way of your Lord
74:8  For when the trumpet blow
74:9  It will be a day of distress
74:10  Dolorous for the unbelievers
74:11  Leave him to Me whom I created alone
74:12  And gave him abundant wealt
74:13  And sons always present by his side
74:14  And made things easy for them
74:15  Yet he wants that I should give him more
74:16  Never. He is refractory of Our signs
74:17  I shall inflict on him hardship
74:18  For he had thought and calculated
74:19  May he be accursed, how he planned
74:20  May be then be accursed, how he plotted
74:21  Then he looked around
74:22  And frowned and puckered his brow
74:23  Then turned his back and waxed proud
74:24  And said: "This is nothing but the magic of old
74:25  Nothing more than the speech of a man!"
74:26  I will cast him into the fire of Hell
74:27  What do you think Hell-fire is
74:28  It leaves nothing, nor does it spare
74:29  It glows and burns the skin
74:30  Over it are nineteen (guards)
74:31  We have not appointed any one but angels as keepers of Hell, and their number that We have fixed is to make it a means of contention for disbelievers, so that those who were given the Book may be certain, and the faith of the believers may have greater increase, and the people of the Book and believers may not be deceived, and the sceptics and infidels may say: "What does God mean by this parable?" That is how God leads whosoever He will astray, and guides whosoever He will. None knows the armies of your Lord save Him self. This is no more than reminder for mankind
74:32  I say the truth, and call the moon to witness
74:33  And the night when on the wane
74:34  The morning when it is unveiled
74:35  That (Hell) is surely one of the greater (signs)
74:36  A warning for people -
74:37  Whoever of you desires to progress or lag behind
74:38  Every soul is pledged to what it does
74:39  Except those of the right han
74:40  Sitting in the gardens, askin
74:41  Of evil-doers
74:42  "What was it that brought you to Hell?"
74:43  They will answer: "We did not fulfil our devotional obligations
74:44  And did not feed the needy
74:45  And plunged into useless things with those who were obstinate
74:46  And rejected the Day of Judgement as a li
74:47  Until the certainty (of death) had come upon us
74:48  So, the intercession of intercessors will not avail them
74:49  Why then do they turn away from the admonitio
74:50  As though they were frightened asse
74:51  Fleeing from a lion
74:52  In fact every one of them wants to be given open books (like the prophets)
74:53  By no means. In fact they do not fear the Hereafter
74:54  Never so, as this is a reminder
74:55  Let him then who heeds remember it
74:56  But they will not remember except as God wills: He is worthy to be feared, and He is worthy of forgivin
