Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha Mim! (1) By the Clear Book. (2) surely We sent it down on a blessed night, We have always sent warnings, (3) (We revealed it on the Night) wherein every matter is wisely determined (4) at a behest from Ourselves: for, verily, We have always been sending [Our messages of guidance] (5) as a mercy from thy Lord (surely He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing) (6) He is the Lord of heaven and earth and all that is between them, if only you would really believe, (7) 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. (8) Nay! They play in doubt. (9) Therefore keep waiting for the day when the heaven shall bring an evident smoke, (10) enveloping people. That will be a grievous scourge. (11) 'O our Lord, remove Thou from us the chastisement; we are believers.' (12) But how will they take heed? Such are they that a Messenger came to them clearly expounding the Truth, (13) Whereas they had then turned away from him and said, “He is a madman, tutored!”? (14) Verily We shall remove the torment for a while; but verily ye shall revert. (15) But on that Day We will assault them most mightily, and then We shall revenge! (16) ۞ AND, INDEED, [long] before their time did We try Pharaoh's people [in the same way]: for there came unto them a noble apostle, [who said:] (17) Saying: "Restore to me the slaves of Allah (i.e. the Children of Israel). Verily! I am to you a Messenger worthy of all trust, (18) And [saying], "Be not haughty with Allah. Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority. (19) And lo! I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord lest ye stone me to death. (20) And if you do not believe me, then leave me' (21) Then he called upon his Lord: These are a guilty people. (22) (He was told): “Set out with My servants by night for you will certainly be pursued. (23) (Cross and) leave the sea undisturbed. The (pursuing) hosts will surely be drowned," (24) They left - how many! of gardens and springs. (25) And green crops (fields etc.) and goodly places, (26) and pleasant things in which they delighted! (27) Thus it was; and We passed them on to another people. (28) Then neither the sky shed tears over them nor the earth. They were granted no respite. (29)
