O thou shrouded in thy mantle, 1 Rise up and warn! 2 And your Lord (Allah) magnify! 3 And thine inner self purify! 4 Pollution shun! 5 And do not confer favor to acquire more 6 be patient unto your Lord. 7 Then when the horn shall be blown, 8 That shall be - that Day - a day hard. 9 Dolorous for the unbelievers. 10 Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, 11 and to whom I have granted resources in abundance, 12 and children living in his presence, 13 And spread [everything] before him, easing [his life]. 14 Yet he desires that I should give more. 15 Nay! He is forward unto Our signs; 16 Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! 17 For he thought and he plotted -- 18 Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? 19 yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! 20 Then he considered [again]; 21 frowned and scowled, 22 Then he turned back and was big with pride, 23 and said: 'This is no more than traced sorcery; 24 Naught is this but the word of Man. 25 I shall make him suffer the torment of hell. 26 What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? 27 It neither spares, nor releases, 28 it scorches the skin; 29 Over it are nineteen (angels guarding). 30 We have not appointed the guards of hell, except angels; and did not keep this number except to test the disbelievers in order that the People given the Book(s) may be convinced, and to increase the faith of the believers and so that the People given the Book(s) and the Muslims may not have any doubt and so that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers, may say, “What does Allah mean by this amazing example?” This is how Allah sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills; and no one knows the armies of Allah except Him; and this is not but an advice to man. 31
