Jump to: navigation, search

(44:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.

(44:1) H8M40*

(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:

(44:35) "There is nothing but our first death; and we will never be reincarnated!"

(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.
