In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. O you (Muhammad
SAW) enveloped (in garments)!
2. Arise and warn!
3. And your Lord
4. And your garments
5. And keep away
from Ar-Rujz (the idols)!
6. And give not a
thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allâh's
obedience as a favour to Allâh).
7. And be patient
for the sake of your Lord (i.e. perform your duty to Allâh)!
8. Then, when the
Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing);
9. Truly, that Day
will be a Hard Day.
10. Far from easy
for the disbelievers.
11. Leave Me Alone
(to deal) with whom I created Alone (without any means, i.e. Al-Walîd
bin Al-Mughîrah Al-Makhzûmî)!
12. And then granted
him resources in abundance.
13. And children
to be by his side!
14. And made life
smooth and comfortable for him!
15. After all that
he desires that I should give more;
16. Nay! Verily,
he has been stubborn and opposing Our Ayât (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.).
17. I shall oblige
him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called AsSa'ûd,
or to) face a severe torment!
18. Verily, he thought
19. So let him be
cursed! How he plotted!
20. And once more
let him be cursed, how he plotted!
21. Then he thought;
22. Then he frowned
and he looked in a bad tempered way;
23. Then he turned
back and was proud;
24. Then he said:
"This is nothing but magic from that of old;
25. "This is
nothing but the word of a human being!"
26. I will cast him
27. And what will
make you know exactly what Hell-fire is?
28. It spares not
(any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)!
29. Burning the skins!
30. Over it are nineteen
(angels as guardians and keepers of Hell).
31. And We have set
none but angels as guardians of the Fire, and We have fixed their
number (19) only as a trial for the disbelievers, in order that
the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) may arrive at
a certainty [that this Qur'ân is the truth as it agrees
with their Books i.e. their number (19) is written in the Taurât
(Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] and the believers may increase
in Faith (as this Qur'ân is the truth) and that no doubts
may be left for the people of the Scripture and the believers,
and that those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) and
the disbelievers may say: "What Allâh intends by this
(curious) example ?" Thus Allâh leads astray whom He
wills and guides whom He wills. And none can know the hosts of
your Lord but He. And this (Hell) is nothing else than a (warning)
reminder to mankind.
32. Nay, and by the
33. And by the night
when it withdraws,
34. And by the dawn
when it brightens,
35. Verily, it (Hell,
or their denial of the Prophet Muhammad SAW , or the Day of Resurrection)
is but one of the greatest calamities.
36. A warning to
37. To any of you
that chooses to go forward (by working righteous deeds), or to
remain behind (by commiting sins),
38. Every person
is a pledge for what he has earned,
39. Except those
on the Right, (i.e. the pious true believers of Islâmic
40. In Gardens (Paradise)
they will ask one another,
41. About Al-Mujrimûn
(polytheists, criminals, disbelievers, etc.), (And they will say
42. "What has
caused you to enter Hell?"
43. They will say:
"We were not of those who used to offer their Salât
44. "Nor we
used to feed Al-Miskin (the poor);
45. "And we
used to talk falsehood (all that which Allâh hated) with
vain talkers .
46. "And we
used to belie the Day of Recompense
47. "Until there
came to us (the death) that is certain."
48. So no intercession
of intercessors will be of any use to them.
49. Then what is
wrong with them (i.e. the disbelievers) that they turn away from
50. As if they were
frightened (wild) donkeys.
51. Fleeing from
a hunter, or a lion, or a beast of prey.
52. Nay, everyone
of them desires that he should be given pages spread out (coming
from Allâh with a writing that Islâm is the right
religion, and Muhammad SAW
has come with the truth from Allâh the Lord of the heavens
and earth, etc.).
53. Nay! But they
fear not the Hereafter (from Allâh's punishment).
54. Nay, verily,
this (Qur'ân) is an admonition,
55. So whosoever
will (let him read it), and receive admonition (from it)!
56. And they will
not receive admonition unless Allâh wills; He (Allâh)
is the One, deserving that mankind should be afraid of, and should
be dutiful to Him, and should not take any Ilâh (God)
along with Him, and He is the One Who forgives (sins).
