[44.2] By the Book that makes things clear;-
[44.3] We sent it down during a Blessed Night: for We (ever) wish to warn (against Evil).
[44.4] In the (Night) is made distinct every affair of wisdom,
[44.5] By command, from Our Presence. For We (ever) send (revelations),
[44.6] As Mercy from thy Lord: for He hears and knows (all things);
[44.7] The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if ye (but) have an assured faith.
[44.8] There is no god but He: It is He Who gives life and gives death,- The Lord and Cherisher to you and your earliest ancestors.
[44.9] Yet they play about in doubt.
[44.10] Then watch thou for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke (or mist) plainly visible,
[44.11] Enveloping the people: this will be a Penalty Grievous.
[44.12] (They will say:) "Our Lord! remove the Penalty from us, for we do really believe!"
[44.13] How shall the message be (effectual) for them, seeing that an Messenger explaining things clearly has (already) come to them,-
[44.14] Yet they turn away from him and say: "Tutored (by others), a man possessed!"
[44.15] We shall indeed remove the Penalty for a while, (but) truly ye will revert (to your ways).
[44.16] One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught: We will indeed (then) exact Retribution!
[44.17] We did, before them, try the people of Pharaoh: there came to them a messenger most honourable,
[44.18] Saying: "Restore to me the Servants of Allah: I am to you an messenger worthy of all trust;
[44.19] "And be not arrogant as against Allah: for I come to you with authority manifest.
[44.20] "For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me.
[44.21] "If ye believe me not, at least keep yourselves away from me."
[44.22] (But they were aggressive:) then he cried to his Lord: "These are indeed a people given to sin."
[44.23] (The reply came:) "March forth with My Servants by night: for ye are sure to be pursued.
[44.24] "And leave the sea as a furrow (divided): for they are a host (destined) to be drowned."
[44.25] How many were the gardens and springs they left behind,
[44.26] And corn-fields and noble buildings,
[44.27] And wealth (and conveniences of life), wherein they had taken such delight!
[44.28] Thus (was their end)! And We made other people inherit (those things)!
[44.29] And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them: nor were they given a respite (again).
[44.30] We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment,
[44.31] Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.
[44.32] And We chose them aforetime above the nations, knowingly,
[44.33] And granted them Signs in which there was a manifest trial
[44.34] As to these (Quraish), they say forsooth:
[44.35] "There is nothing beyond our first death, and we shall not be raised again.
[44.36] "Then bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!"
[44.37] What! Are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin.
[44.38] We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, merely in (idle) sport:
[44.39] We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.
[44.40] Verily the Day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them,-
[44.41] The Day when no protector can avail his client in aught, and no help can they receive,
[44.42] Except such as receive Allah's Mercy: for He is Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
[44.43] Verily 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] (A voice will cry: "Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire!
[44.48] "Then pour over his head the Penalty of Boiling Water,
[44.49] "Taste thou (this)! Truly wast thou mighty, full of honour!
[44.50] "Truly this is what ye used to doubt!"
[44.51] As to 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] So; and We shall join them to fair women with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.
[44.55] There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security;
[44.56] Nor will they there taste Death, except the first death; and He will preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire,-
[44.57] As a Bounty from thy Lord! that will be the supreme achievement!
[44.58] Verily, We have made this (Qur'an) easy, in thy tongue, in order that they may give heed.
[44.59] So wait thou and watch; for they (too) are waiting.
