Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Ha Mim (1) By the clear Book, (2) surely We sent it down on a blessed night, We have always sent warnings, (3) Whereon every wise command is made clear (4) at a behest from Ourselves: for, verily, We have always been sending [Our messages of guidance] (5) A mercy from thy Lord. Lo! He, even He is the Hearer, the Knower, (6) Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if you are certain (of your faith). (7) There is no god but He; He gives life and causes death, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore. (8) Nay, they are in doubt, they sport. (9) Then wait you for the Day when the sky will bring forth a visible smoke. (10) That will envelop the people. This will be a painful torment. (11) Lord, remove this torment from us for we are believers". (12) How can they benefit from admonition, seeing that a messenger had already come to them explaining things clearly? (13) Then they turned away from him and said, "He is a madman, taught by others!" (14) If We remove the torment a little, you revert back (to misdeeds). (15) One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught: We will indeed (then) exact Retribution! (16) ۞ And certainly We tried before them the people of Firon, and there came to them a noble apostle, (17) saying, "Hand over God's servants to me. I am a trustworthy messenger for you. (18) And saying: Be not proud against Allah. Lo! I bring you a clear warrant. (19) And surely I take refuge with my Lord and your Lord that you should stone me to death: (20) And if you do not believe in me, then leave me alone. (21) Then he called to his Lord: "These are a sinful people." (22) So depart thou with My bondmen by night; verily ye shall be pursued. (23) Cross the sea by cutting a path through it. Pharaoh's army will be drowned. (24) How many gardens and water-springs they left behind! (25) And fields and grand palaces! (26) And wealth (and conveniences of life), wherein they had taken such delight! (27) As such (it was). And We made other people inherit them. (28) Neither did the heavens weep for them, nor the earth, nor were they granted respite. (29)
