59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Ha Mim (1) By the Book that makes things clear;- (2) Indeed, We sent it down during a blessed night. Indeed, We were to warn [mankind]. (3) On that [night] was made clear, in wisdom, the distinction between all things [good and evil] (4) As a command from Our presence - Lo! We are ever sending - (5) in pursuance of thy Sustainer's grace [unto man]. Verily, He alone is all-hearing, 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 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) But they are in doubt, amusing themselves. (9) Wait for the day (which will come before the Day of Judgment) when the sky will give out dense smoke (10) That shall overtake men; this is a painful punishment. (11) 'O our Lord, remove Thou from us the chastisement; we are believers.' (12) How can there be remembrance for them, when a messenger making plain (the Truth) had already come unto them, (13) But they turned away from him, and said: "He is well-instructed, (but) possessed." (14) Surely We will remove the punishment a little, (but) you will surely return (to evil). (15) The Day We will strike with the greatest assault, indeed, We will take retribution. (16) ۞ We had certainly tested the people of the Pharaoh before them to whom a noble Messengers had come, saying, (17) saying, 'Deliver to me God's servants; I am for you a faithful Messenger, (18) Do not rise up against Allah, I come to you with clear authority. (19) "And truly, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me (or call me a sorcerer or kill me). (20) "But if you believe me not, then keep away from me and leave me alone." (21) And he called to his Lord, saying, 'These are a sinful people.' (22) (His Lord answered): 'Set out with My worshipers in the night, for you will surely be followed. (23) And leave the sea behind at rest, for lo! they are a drowned host. (24) How many were the gardens and the watersprings that they left behind, (25) And crops and noble sites (26) And the delights which they had been enjoying! (27) Thus (was their end)! And We made other people inherit (those things)! (28) Neither heaven nor earth shed tears for them; nor were they respited, (29)
