Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha'. Mim. (1) By the Scripture that maketh plain (2) Behold, from on high have We bestowed it on a blessed night: for, verily, We have always been warning [man]. (3) In the (Night) is made distinct every affair of wisdom, (4) by Our command. Verily, We were set to send a Messenger (5) as a mercy from thy Lord (surely He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing) (6) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them: if you would only have sure faith. (7) There is no god but He. He quickeneth and causeth to die: your Lord and Lord of your forefathers. (8) (But the fact is, they lack certainty) and frolic about in doubt. (9) So watch for the Day when the sky will come down with a pall of smoke, (10) Which will envelop the people; this is a painful punishment. (11) [They will say], "Our Lord, remove from us the torment; indeed, we are believers." (12) How should they have the Reminder, seeing a clear Messenger already came to them, (13) and they turned away, saying, "He is a trained and insane person". (14) We shall remove the torment for a while but you will revert to your old ways. (15) On the Day when We shall seize you with the greatest grasp. Verily, We will exact retribution. (16) ۞ And assuredly afore them We proved Fir'awn's people, and there came unto them an apostle honoured. (17) "Deliver the creatures of God to me. I am the trusted messenger sent to you. (18) "And be not arrogant as against Allah: for I come to you with authority manifest. (19) "For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me. (20) And if you do not believe in me, then leave me alone. (21) But then, [when they beset him with their enmity,] he called out to his Sustainer, "These are [indeed] people lost in sin!" (22) (He was told): “Set out with My servants by night for you will certainly be pursued. (23) and leave the sea becalmed [between thee and Pharaoh's men]: for, verily, they are a host destined to be drowned!" (24) How many were the gardens and springs they left behind, (25) And fields and stately mansions, (26) And comfort wherein they were amused. (27) Thus (was their end)! And We made other people inherit (those things)! (28) So the heavens and the earth did not weep for them, and they were not given respite. (29)
