Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Ha-Mim. (1) By the Book that makes things clear;- (2) surely We sent it down on a blessed night, We have always sent warnings, (3) On this night, every absolute command coming from Us becomes distinguishable. (4) an order from Us. We are ever sending. (5) as a mercy (for the human being) from your Lord. Your Lord is All-hearing and All-knowing. (6) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure. (7) There is only One Lord. It is He who gives life and causes things to die. He is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers. (8) Nay, but they [who lack inner certainty] are but dying with their doubts. (9) So watch for the day when the sky begins to emit clear smoke, (10) That will envelop the people. This will be a painful torment. (11) Then they will say, "Lord, relieve us from this torment, for truly we are now believers in You." (12) How can there be remembrance for them, when a messenger making plain (the Truth) had already come unto them, (13) And they had turned away from him and said: One taught (by others), a madman? (14) We now remove the punishment for some days so you will again commit the same. (15) The Day We will strike with the greatest assault, indeed, We will take retribution. (16) ۞ And assuredly afore them We proved Fir'awn's people, and there came unto them an apostle honoured. (17) Saying: Give up to me the slaves of Allah. Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you. (18) And saying: Be not proud against Allah. Lo! I bring you a clear warrant. (19) And verily I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord lest ye stone me. (20) And if ye will not believe in me, then let me alone. (21) He therefore prayed to his Lord, “These are a guilty nation!” (22) (The reply came:) "March forth with My Servants by night: for ye are sure to be pursued. (23) Leave the sea behind you parted; they are a host destined to be drowned." (24) They left - how many! of gardens and springs. (25) and cornfields and splendid buildings, (26) and pleasant things in which they delighted! (27) Thus it was; and We passed them on to another people. (28) And the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved. (29)
