Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha. Mim. (1) By the Scripture that maketh plain (2) that We have revealed the Quran on a blessed night to warn mankind. (3) On that night is made distinct every precise matter - (4) [Every] matter [proceeding] from Us. Indeed, We were to send [a messenger] (5) as a Mercy from your Lord. Surely He is All-Hearing, All-Seeing, (6) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them, if ye (but) have an assured faith. (7) There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death. [He is] your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers. (8) yet, they toy with their doubts. (9) Then watch for the Day when the sky will bring a visible smoke. (10) which will smother the people. They will say, "This is a painful torment. (11) O our Sustainer, relieve us of suffering, for, verily, we [now] believe [in Thee]!" (12) How could this punishment bring them to their senses when a Messenger evidently had come to them, (13) but then they turned away from him, saying: 'He is tutored, mad' (14) We are removing the punishment a little, but you revert. (15) On the day when We shall seize them with the greater seizure, (then) in truth We shall punish. (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 do not exalt yourselves in defiance of Allah. I have come to you with a clear authority (as a Messenger). (19) I take refuge with my Lord and your Lord lest you stone me. (20) "But if you believe me not, then keep away from me and leave me alone." (21) Then he called upon his Lord: these are a people guilty. (22) (His Lord answered): 'Set out with My worshipers in the night, for you will surely be followed. (23) Cross the sea by cutting a path through it. Pharaoh's army will be drowned. (24) How many gardens and fountains did they leave behind, (25) and sown fields and splendid mansions, (26) and pleasant things in which they delighted! (27) We gave these as an inheritance to other people. (28) Neither heaven nor earth wept for them, nor were they respited; (29)
