(44:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.
(44:2) The clarifying book
(44:3) We have sent it down in a blessed night. Surely, We were to warn.
(44:4) In it, is a decree for every matter of wisdom.
(44:5) A decree from Us. Surely, We were to send messengers.
(44:6) A mercy from your Lord. He is the Hearer, the Knowledgeable.
(44:7) The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them. If you were certain!
(44:8) There is no god except Him. He gives life and causes death; your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors.
(44:9) No; they are in doubt, playing.
(44:10) Therefore, watch for the day when the sky will bring a visible smoke/gas.
(44:11) It will envelop the people: "This is a painful retribution!"
(44:12) "Our Lord, remove the retribution from us; we are those who acknowledge."
(44:13) How is it that now they remember, while a clarifying messenger had come to them?
(44:14) But they turned away from him and said, "Clearly educated, but crazy!"
(44:15) We will remove the retribution in a while; you will then revert back.
(44:16) On the day We strike the great strike, We will avenge.
(44:17) We had tested before them the people of Pharaoh, and an honorable messenger came to them.
(44:18) "Restore to me the servants of God. I am a trustworthy messenger to you."
(44:19) "And, do not transgress against God. I come to you with clear authority."
(44:20) "I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, should you stone/reject me."
(44:21) "If you do not wish to acknowledge, then leave me alone."
(44:22) Subsequently, he called on his Lord: "These are a criminal people."
(44:23) You shall travel with My servants during the night; you will be pursued.
(44:24) Cross the sea quickly; their troops will be drowned.
(44:25) How many paradises and springs did they leave behind?
(44:26) Crops and luxurious dwellings?
(44:27) Blessings that they enjoyed?
(44:28) Thus it was; and We caused another people to inherit it.
(44:29) Neither the heaven, nor the earth wept over them, and they were not reprieved.
(44:30) We saved the Children of Israel from the humiliating agony.
(44:31) From Pharaoh; he was a transgressing tyrant.
(44:32) We have chosen them, out of knowledge, over the worlds.
(44:33) We granted them signs, which constituted a great test.
(44:34) These people now are saying:
(44:36) "So bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful!"
(44:37) Are they better or the people of Tubba and those before them? We destroyed them, they were criminals.
(44:38) We have not created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, for mere play.
(44:39) We did not create them except with the truth, but most of them do not know.
(44:40) Surely, the day of Separation is the appointment for them all.
(44:41) That is the day when no friend can help his friend in any way; nor will they be helped.
(44:42) Except the one whom God treated with compassion. He is the Noble, the Compassionate.
(44:43) Surely, the tree of Bitterness
(44:44) Will be the food for the sinful.
(44:45) Like hot oil, it will boil in the stomachs.
(44:46) Like the boiling of liquid.
(44:47) "Take him and throw him into the midst of hell."
(44:48) "Then pour upon his head the retribution of boiling liquid."
(44:49) "Taste this; surely you are the noble, the generous!"
(44:50) Surely, this is what you used to doubt!
(44:51) The righteous will be in a place of security.
(44:52) Among paradises and springs.
(44:53) Wearing silk and satin; facing each other.
(44:54) So it is, and We coupled them with wonderful companions.
(44:55) They enjoy in it all kinds of fruits, in perfect peace.
(44:56) They do not taste death therein except for the first death, and He has spared them the retribution of hell.
(44:57) As a blessing from your Lord. Such is the great triumph.
(44:58) We have thus made it easy in your language, perhaps they may take heed.
(44:59) Therefore, keep watch; for they too will keep watch.
