Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
59 verses, revealed in Mecca after Vanity (Al-Zukhruf) before Kneeling (Al-Jaatheyah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Ha-Mim. (1) By the clear Book, (2) Surely We revealed it on a blessed night surely We are ever warning-- (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) in pursuance of thy Sustainer's grace [unto man]. Verily, He alone is all-hearing, all-knowing, (6) Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if ye would be sure. (7) there is no deity save Him: It is He who gives both life and death -- He is your Lord, and the Lord of your forefathers, (8) Nay, but they play in doubt. (9) Wait, then, for the Day when the sky brings forth plainly visible clouds of smoke. (10) enveloping people. That will be a grievous scourge. (11) Our Lord! remove from us the punishment; surely we are believers. (12) But how will they avail themselves of the Reminder, when a clear Messenger had already come to them (13) but then they turned away from him, saying: 'He is tutored, mad' (14) [Still,] behold, We shall postpone this suffering for a little while, although you are bound to revert [to your evil ways: but] (15) On the day when We shall seize them with the greater seizure, (then) in truth We shall punish. (16) ۞ And assuredly afore them We proved Fir'awn's people, and there came unto them an apostle honoured. (17) "Deliver the creatures of God to me. I am the trusted messenger sent to you. (18) and do not exalt yourselves in defiance of Allah. I have come to you with a clear authority (as a Messenger). (19) "For me, I have sought safety with my Lord and your Lord, against your injuring me. (20) And if ye put no faith in me, then let me go. (21) Then he called to his Lord: "These are a sinful people." (22) So go forth with My servants by night; surely you will be pursued: (23) "And leave the sea as it is (quiet and divided). Verily, They are a host to be drowned." (24) How many gardens and fountains did they leave behind, (25) and sown fields, fine sitting places, (26) And wealth (and conveniences of life), wherein they had taken such delight! (27) We gave these as an inheritance to other people. (28) And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them: nor were they given a respite (again). (29)
