In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . O thou enveloped in thy cloak ,
2 . Arise and warn!
3 . Thy Lord magnify ,
4 . Thy raiment purify ,
5 . Pollution shun!
6 . And show not favor , seeking worldly gain!
7 . For the sake of thy Lord , be patient!
8 . For when the trumpet shall sound ,
9 . Surely that day will be a day of anguish ,
10 . Not of ease , for disbelievers .
11 . Leave Me ( to deal ) with him whom I created lonely ,
12 . And then bestowed upon him ample means ,
13 . And sons abiding in his presence
14 . And made ( life ) smooth for him .
15 . Yet he desireth that I should give more .
16 . Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations .
17 . On him I shall impose a fearful doom .
18 . For lo! he did consider ; then he planned
19 . ( Self ) destroyed is he , how he planned!
20 . Again ( self ) destroyed is he , how he planned!
21 . Then looked he ,
22 . Then frowned he and showed displeasure .
23 . Then turned he away in pride
24 . And said : This is naught else than magic from of old ;
25 . This naught else than speech of mortal man .
26 . Him shall I fling unto the burning .
27 . Ah , what will convey unto thee what that burning is!
28 . I leaveth naught ; It spareth naught
29 . It shrivelleth the man .
30 . Above it are nineteen .
31 . We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the fire , and their number have We made to be a stumbling block for those who disbelieve ; that those to whom the scripture hath been given may have certainty , and that believers may increase in faith ; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt ; and that those in whose hearts there is disease , and disbelievers , may say : What meaneth Allah by this similitude? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will , and whom He will He guideth . None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him . This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals .
32 . Nay , by the Moon
33 . And the night when it withdraweth
34 . And the dawn when it shineth forth .
35 . Lo! this is one of the greatest ( portents )
36 . As a warning unto men ,
37 . Unto him of you who will advance or hang back .
38 . Every soul is a pledge for its own deeds ;
39 . Save these who will stand on the right hand .
40 . In gardens they will ask one another
41 . Concerning the guilty :
42 . What hath brought you to this burning?
43 . They will answer : We were not of those who prayed
44 . Nor did we feed the wretched .
45 . We used to wade ( in vain dispute ) with ( all ) waders ,
46 . And we used to deny the Day of Judgment ,
47 . Till the inevitable came unto us .
48 . The mediation of no mediators will . avail them then .
49 . Why now turn they away from the Admonishment
50 . As they were frightened asses
51 . Fleeing from a lion?
52 . Nay , but everyone of them desireth that he should be given open pages ( from Allah ) .
53 . Nay , verily . They fear not the Hereafter .
54 . Nay , verily . Lo! this is an Admonishment .
55 . So whosoever will may heed .
56 . And they will not heed unless Allah willeth ( it ) . He is the fount of fear . He is the fount of Mercy .
