# 44 The Smoke (Ad-Dukhan) Explanation of # 44 The Smoke (Ad-Dukhan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

[44.1] Ha. Mim.
[44.2] By the Scripture that maketh plain
[44.3] Lo! We revealed it on a blessed night - Lo! We are ever warning -
[44.4] Whereon every wise command is made clear
[44.5] As a command from Our presence - Lo! We are ever sending -
[44.6] A mercy from thy Lord. Lo! He, even He is the Hearer, the Knower,
[44.7] Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if ye would be sure.
[44.8] There is no God save Him. He quickeneth and giveth death; your Lord and Lord of your forefathers.
[44.9] Nay, but they play in doubt.
[44.10] But watch thou (O Muhammad) for the day when the sky will produce visible smoke
[44.11] That will envelop the people. This will be a painful torment.
[44.12] (Then they will say): Our Lord relieve us of the torment. Lo! we are believers.
[44.13] How can there be remembrance for them, when a messenger making plain (the Truth) had already come unto them,
[44.14] And they had turned away from him and said: One taught (by others), a madman ?
[44.15] Lo! We withdraw the torment a little. Lo! ye return (to disbelief).
[44.16] On the day when We shall seize them with the greater seizure, (then) in truth We shall punish.
[44.17] And verily We tried before them Pharaoh's folk, when there came unto them a noble messenger,
[44.18] Saying: Give up to me the slaves of Allah. Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you.
[44.19] And saying: Be not proud against Allah. Lo! I bring you a clear warrant.
[44.20] And lo! I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord lest ye stone me to death.
[44.21] And if ye put no faith in me, then let me go.
[44.22] And he cried unto his Lord, (saying): These are guilty folk.
[44.23] Then (his Lord commanded): Take away My slaves by night. Lo! ye will be followed,
[44.24] And leave the sea behind at rest, for lo! they are a drowned host.
[44.25] How many were the gardens and the watersprings that they left behind,
[44.26] And the cornlands and the goodly sites
[44.27] And pleasant things wherein they took delight!
[44.28] Even so (it was), and We made it an inheritance for other folk;
[44.29] And the heaven and the earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved.
[44.30] And We delivered the Children of Israel from the shameful doom;
[44.31] (We delivered them) from Pharaoh. Lo! he was a tyrant of the wanton ones.
[44.32] And We chose them, purposely, above (all) creatures.
[44.33] And We gave them portents wherein was a clear trial.
[44.34] Lo! these, forsooth, are saying:
[44.35] There is naught but our first death, and we shall not be raised again.
[44.36] Bring back our fathers, if ye speak the truth!
[44.37] Are they better, or the folk of Tubb'a and those before them ? We destroyed them, for surely they were guilty.
[44.38] And We created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in play.
[44.39] We created them not save with truth; but most of them know not.
[44.40] Assuredly the Day of Decision is the term for all of them,
[44.41] A day when friend can in naught avail friend, nor can they be helped,
[44.42] Save him on whom Allah hath mercy. Lo! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
[44.43] Lo! the tree of Zaqqum,
[44.44] The food of the sinner!
[44.45] Like molten brass, it seetheth in their bellies
[44.46] As the seething of boiling water.
[44.47] (And it will be said): Take him and drag him to the midst of hell,
[44.48] Then pour upon his head the torment of boiling water.
[44.49] (Saying): Taste! Lo! thou wast forsooth the mighty, the noble!
[44.50] Lo! this is that whereof ye used to doubt.
[44.51] Lo! those who kept their duty will be in a place secured.
[44.52] Amid gardens and watersprings,
[44.53] Attired in silk and silk embroidery, facing one another.
[44.54] Even so (it will be). And We shall wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes.
[44.55] They call therein for every fruit in safety.
[44.56] They taste not death therein, save the first death. And He hath saved them from the doom of hell,
[44.57] A bounty from thy Lord. That is the supreme triumph.
[44.58] And We have made (this Scripture) easy in thy language only that they may heed.
[44.59] Wait then (O Muhammad). Lo! they (too) are waiting.
