In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Allah revealed this Quran in the Blessed Night (Layla-tul-Qadr) in which all matters are decided wisely by His command
1 Ha Mim. 4688
2 By the Book that makes things clear 4689
3 We sent it down during a blessed night: for We (ever) wish to warn (against Evil). 4690
4 In that (night) is made distinct every affair of wisdom 4691
5 By command from Our presence. For We (ever) send (revelations)
6 As a Mercy from thy Lord: for He hears and knows (all things); 4692
7 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between them if ye (but) have an assured faith. 4693
8 There is no god but He: it is He Who gives life and gives death the Lord and Cherisher to you and your earliest ancestors.
9 Yet they play about in doubt. 4694
10 Then watch thou for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke (or mist) plainly visible. 4695 4696
11 Enveloping the people: this will be a Penalty Grievous.
12 (They will say:) "Our Lord! remove the Penalty from us for We do really believe!"
13 How shall the Message be (effectual) for them seeing that an Apostle explaining things clearly has (already) come to them 4697
14 Yet they turn away from him and say: "Tutored (by others) a man possessed!" 4698
15 We shall indeed remove the Penalty for a while (but) truly ye will revert (to your ways). 4699
16 One day We shall seize you with a mighty onslaught We will indeed (then) exact Retribution!
Lessons to be learned from the story of Prophet Musa and the people of Fir'on
17 We did before them try the people of Pharaoh: there came to them and apostle most honorable 4700 4701
18 Saying: "Restore to me the servants of Allah: I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust; 4702 4703
19 "And be not arrogant as against Allah: for I come to you with authority manifest.
20 "For me I have sought Safety with my Lord and your Lord against your injuring me. 4704 4705
21 "If ye believe me not at least keep yourselves away from me." 4706
22 (But they were aggressive): then he cried to his Lord: "These are indeed a people given to sin." 4707
23 (The reply came): "March forth with My servants by night: for ye are sure to be pursued.
24 "And leave the sea as a furrow (divided). For they are a host (destined) to be drowned." 4708
25 How many were the gardens and springs they left behind. 4709
26 And corn-fields and noble buildings.
27 And wealth (and conveniences of life) wherein they had taken such delight!
28 Thus (was their end)! And We made other people inherit (those things)!
29 And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them: nor were they given a respite (again). 4710
Allah delivered the Children of Israel and chose them over the nations of the world inspite of their weaknesses and Day of Sorting Out is the time appointed for resurrection
30 We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment 4711
31 Inflicted by Pharaoh for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.
32 And We chose them aforetime above the nations knowingly 4712
33 And granted them Signs in which there was a manifest trial. 4713
34 As to these (Quraish) they say forsooth: 4714
35 "There is nothing beyond our first death and we shall not be raised again.
36 "Then bring (back) our forefathers if what ye say is true!"
37 What! are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin. 4715 4716
38 We created not the heavens the earth and all between them merely in (idle) sport: 4717
39 We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.
40 Verily the Day of Sorting Out is the time appointed for all of them 4718
41 The Day when no protector can avail his client in aught and no help can they receive. 4719
42 Except such as receive Allah's Mercy: for He is exalted in Might Most Merciful. 4720
Food and drink for the sinners in hell
43 Verily the tree of Zaqqum 4721 4722
44 Will be the food of the Sinful
45 Like molten brass; it will boil in their insides
46 Like the boiling of scalding water.
47 (A voice will cry:) "Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire!
48 "Then pour over his head the Penalty of Boiling Water;
49 "Taste thou (this)! Truly wast thou Mighty full of honor! 4723
50 "Truly this is what ye used to doubt!" 4724
Food and entertainment for the righteous in paradise
51 As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of Security 4725
52 Among Gardens and Springs;
53 Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade they will face each other; 4726 4727
54 So; and We shall Join them to Companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes. 4728 4729
55 There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security; 4730
56 Nor will they there taste Death except the first Death; and He will preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire 4731 4732
57 As a Bounty from thy Lord! That will be the supreme achievement! 4733
58 Verily We have made this (Qur'an) easy in thy tongue in order that they may give heed. 4734
59 So wait thou and watch; for they (too) are waiting.
