By the clear Book,
Indeed, We sent it down during a blessed night. Indeed, We were to warn.
On that night is made distinct every wise command -
[Every] command from Us. Indeed, We were to send [a messenger]
As mercy from your Lord. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
Lord of the heavens and the earth *Acts 17:24 and that between them, if you would be certain.
There is no god except Him; *Deuteronomy 4:39, *1 Samuel 2:2, *2 Samuel 7:22, *1 Kings 8:60, *Isaiah 44:6, *Isaiah 44:8, *Isaiah 45:5 - 6, *Isaiah 45:21, *Mark 12:32 He gives life and causes death. *Deuteronomy 32:39, *1 Samuel 2:6, *Wisdom of Solomon 16:13, *4 Maccabees 18:19 [He is] your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers.
But they are in doubt, amusing themselves.
Then watch for the day when the heaven will bring a visible smoke.
Covering the people; this is a painful torment.
[They will say], "Our Lord, remove from us the torment; indeed, we are believers."
How will there be for them a reminder [at that time]? And there had come to them a clear messenger.
Then they turned away from him and said, "[He was] taught [and is] possessed [by devils of jinn]." *John 7:20, *John 8:48, *John 10:20
Indeed, We will remove the torment for a little. Indeed, you [disbelievers] will return [to disbelief].
The Day We will seize with the greatest seizure, indeed, We will take retribution.
And We had already tried before them the people of Pharaoh, and there came to them a noble messenger,
[Saying], "Render to me the servants of God. Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger,"
And [saying], "Do not exalt yourselves against God. Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority.
And indeed, I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me.
But if you do not believe me, then leave me alone."
And [finally] he called to his Lord that these were a criminal people.
[God said], "Then set out with My servants *Leviticus 25:55 by night. *Exodus 12:42 Indeed, you are to be pursued.
And leave the sea in stillness. Indeed, they are an army to be drowned."
How many did they leave behind of gardens and springs
And crops and noble sites
And comfort wherein they were amused?
Thus. And We caused to inherit it another people.
And the heaven and earth did not weep for them, nor were they reprieved.
And We certainly saved the Children of Israel from the humiliating torment -
From Pharaoh. Indeed, he was a haughty one among the transgressors.
And We certainly chose them by knowledge over [all] the worlds.
And We gave them of signs that in which there was a clear trial.
Indeed, these [disbelievers] are saying,
"There is not but our first death, and we will not be resurrected.
Then bring [back] our forefathers, if you should be truthful."
Are they better or the people of Tubba' and those before them? We destroyed them, [for] indeed, they were criminals.
And We did not create the heavens and earth and that between them in play.
We did not create them except in truth, but most of them do not know.
Indeed, the Day of Judgement is the appointed time for them all -
The Day when no protector will avail [another] protector at all, nor will they be helped - *2 Ezra 7:43 - 45
Except those on whom God has mercy. Indeed, He is the Almighty, the Merciful.
Indeed, the tree of zaqqum
Is food for the sinful.
Like murky oil, it boils within bellies *17:60
Like the boiling of scalding water.
[It will be commanded], "Seize him and drag him into the midst of the Hellfire, *Matthew 22:13
Then pour over his head from the torment of scalding water."
[It will be said], "Taste! Indeed, you are the mighty, the noble!
Indeed, this is what you used to dispute."
Indeed, those who fear [God] will be in a secure place;
Within gardens and springs, *Book of Enoch 48:1
Wearing [garments of] fine silk and brocade, facing each other.
Thus. And We will marry them to fair ones with large, [beautiful] eyes.
They will call therein for every [kind of] fruit - secure. *2 Ezra 7:53
They will not taste death therein except the first death, and He will have protected them from the punishment of Hellfire
As bounty from your Lord. That is what is the great success.
And indeed, We have eased [the Qur'an] in your tongue that they might be reminded.
So watch, indeed, they are watching.
