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.

44:11

 

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

44:18

 

Saying: "Restore to me the Servants of Allah. I am to you an apostle 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

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!"
