Surah Al-Muddaththir (The One Enveloped) - Aya count 56

یَــٰۤـأَیُّهَا ٱلۡمُدَّثِّرُ ﴿١﴾

O you who covers himself [with a garment],

قُمۡ فَأَنذِرۡ ﴿٢﴾

Arise and warn

وَرَبَّكَ فَكَبِّرۡ ﴿٣﴾

And your Lord glorify

وَثِیَابَكَ فَطَهِّرۡ ﴿٤﴾

And your clothing purify

وَٱلرُّجۡزَ فَٱهۡجُرۡ ﴿٥﴾

And uncleanliness avoid

وَلَا تَمۡنُن تَسۡتَكۡثِرُ ﴿٦﴾

And do not confer favor to acquire more

وَلِرَبِّكَ فَٱصۡبِرۡ ﴿٧﴾

But for your Lord be patient.

فَإِذَا نُقِرَ فِی ٱلنَّاقُورِ ﴿٨﴾

And when the trumpet is blown,

فَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ یَوۡمَىِٕذࣲ یَوۡمٌ عَسِیرٌ ﴿٩﴾

That Day will be a difficult day

عَلَى ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِینَ غَیۡرُ یَسِیرࣲ ﴿١٠﴾

For the disbelievers - not easy.

ذَرۡنِی وَمَنۡ خَلَقۡتُ وَحِیدࣰا ﴿١١﴾

Leave Me with the one I created alone

وَجَعَلۡتُ لَهُۥ مَالࣰا مَّمۡدُودࣰا ﴿١٢﴾

And to whom I granted extensive wealth

وَبَنِینَ شُهُودࣰا ﴿١٣﴾

And children present [with him]

وَمَهَّدتُّ لَهُۥ تَمۡهِیدࣰا ﴿١٤﴾

And spread [everything] before him, easing [his life].

ثُمَّ یَطۡمَعُ أَنۡ أَزِیدَ ﴿١٥﴾

Then he desires that I should add more.

كَلَّاۤۖ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ لِـَٔایَـٰتِنَا عَنِیدࣰا ﴿١٦﴾

No! Indeed, he has been toward Our verses obstinate.

سَأُرۡهِقُهُۥ صَعُودًا ﴿١٧﴾

I will cover him with arduous torment.

إِنَّهُۥ فَكَّرَ وَقَدَّرَ ﴿١٨﴾

Indeed, he thought and deliberated.

فَقُتِلَ كَیۡفَ قَدَّرَ ﴿١٩﴾

So may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated.

ثُمَّ قُتِلَ كَیۡفَ قَدَّرَ ﴿٢٠﴾

Then may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated.

ثُمَّ نَظَرَ ﴿٢١﴾

Then he considered [again];

ثُمَّ عَبَسَ وَبَسَرَ ﴿٢٢﴾

Then he frowned and scowled;

ثُمَّ أَدۡبَرَ وَٱسۡتَكۡبَرَ ﴿٢٣﴾

Then he turned back and was arrogant

فَقَالَ إِنۡ هَـٰذَاۤ إِلَّا سِحۡرࣱ یُؤۡثَرُ ﴿٢٤﴾

And said, "This is not but magic imitated [from others].

إِنۡ هَـٰذَاۤ إِلَّا قَوۡلُ ٱلۡبَشَرِ ﴿٢٥﴾

This is not but the word of a human being."

سَأُصۡلِیهِ سَقَرَ ﴿٢٦﴾

I will drive him into Saqar.

وَمَاۤ أَدۡرَىٰكَ مَا سَقَرُ ﴿٢٧﴾

And what can make you know what is Saqar?

لَا تُبۡقِی وَلَا تَذَرُ ﴿٢٨﴾

It lets nothing remain and leaves nothing [unburned],

لَوَّاحَةࣱ لِّلۡبَشَرِ ﴿٢٩﴾

Blackening the skins.

عَلَیۡهَا تِسۡعَةَ عَشَرَ ﴿٣٠﴾

Over it are nineteen [angels].

وَمَا جَعَلۡنَاۤ أَصۡحَـٰبَ ٱلنَّارِ إِلَّا مَلَـٰۤىِٕكَةࣰۖ وَمَا جَعَلۡنَا عِدَّتَهُمۡ إِلَّا فِتۡنَةࣰ لِّلَّذِینَ كَفَرُواْ لِیَسۡتَیۡقِنَ ٱلَّذِینَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ وَیَزۡدَادَ ٱلَّذِینَ ءَامَنُوۤاْ إِیمَـٰنࣰا وَلَا یَرۡتَابَ ٱلَّذِینَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ وَلِیَقُولَ ٱلَّذِینَ فِی قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضࣱ وَٱلۡكَـٰفِرُونَ مَاذَاۤ أَرَادَ ٱللَّهُ بِهَـٰذَا مَثَلࣰاۚ كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ یُضِلُّ ٱللَّهُ مَن یَشَاۤءُ وَیَهۡدِی مَن یَشَاۤءُۚ وَمَا یَعۡلَمُ جُنُودَ رَبِّكَ إِلَّا هُوَۚ وَمَا هِیَ إِلَّا ذِكۡرَىٰ لِلۡبَشَرِ ﴿٣١﴾

And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity.

كَلَّا وَٱلۡقَمَرِ ﴿٣٢﴾

No! By the moon

وَٱلَّیۡلِ إِذۡ أَدۡبَرَ ﴿٣٣﴾

And [by] the night when it departs

وَٱلصُّبۡحِ إِذَاۤ أَسۡفَرَ ﴿٣٤﴾

And [by] the morning when it brightens,

إِنَّهَا لَإِحۡدَى ٱلۡكُبَرِ ﴿٣٥﴾

Indeed, the Fire is of the greatest [afflictions]

نَذِیرࣰا لِّلۡبَشَرِ ﴿٣٦﴾

As a warning to humanity -

لِمَن شَاۤءَ مِنكُمۡ أَن یَتَقَدَّمَ أَوۡ یَتَأَخَّرَ ﴿٣٧﴾

To whoever wills among you to proceed or stay behind.

كُلُّ نَفۡسِۭ بِمَا كَسَبَتۡ رَهِینَةٌ ﴿٣٨﴾

Every soul, for what it has earned, will be retained

إِلَّاۤ أَصۡحَـٰبَ ٱلۡیَمِینِ ﴿٣٩﴾

Except the companions of the right,

فِی جَنَّـٰتࣲ یَتَسَاۤءَلُونَ ﴿٤٠﴾

[Who will be] in gardens, questioning each other

عَنِ ٱلۡمُجۡرِمِینَ ﴿٤١﴾

About the criminals,

مَا سَلَكَكُمۡ فِی سَقَرَ ﴿٤٢﴾

[And asking them], "What put you into Saqar?"

قَالُواْ لَمۡ نَكُ مِنَ ٱلۡمُصَلِّینَ ﴿٤٣﴾

They will say, "We were not of those who prayed,

وَلَمۡ نَكُ نُطۡعِمُ ٱلۡمِسۡكِینَ ﴿٤٤﴾

Nor did we used to feed the poor.

وَكُنَّا نَخُوضُ مَعَ ٱلۡخَاۤىِٕضِینَ ﴿٤٥﴾

And we used to enter into vain discourse with those who engaged [in it],

وَكُنَّا نُكَذِّبُ بِیَوۡمِ ٱلدِّینِ ﴿٤٦﴾

And we used to deny the Day of Recompense

حَتَّىٰۤ أَتَىٰنَا ٱلۡیَقِینُ ﴿٤٧﴾

Until there came to us the certainty."

فَمَا تَنفَعُهُمۡ شَفَـٰعَةُ ٱلشَّـٰفِعِینَ ﴿٤٨﴾

So there will not benefit them the intercession of [any] intercessors.

فَمَا لَهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلتَّذۡكِرَةِ مُعۡرِضِینَ ﴿٤٩﴾

Then what is [the matter] with them that they are, from the reminder, turning away

كَأَنَّهُمۡ حُمُرࣱ مُّسۡتَنفِرَةࣱ ﴿٥٠﴾

As if they were alarmed donkeys

فَرَّتۡ مِن قَسۡوَرَةِۭ ﴿٥١﴾

Fleeing from a lion?

بَلۡ یُرِیدُ كُلُّ ٱمۡرِئࣲ مِّنۡهُمۡ أَن یُؤۡتَىٰ صُحُفࣰا مُّنَشَّرَةࣰ ﴿٥٢﴾

Rather, every person among them desires that he would be given scriptures spread about.

كَلَّاۖ بَل لَّا یَخَافُونَ ٱلۡأَخِرَةَ ﴿٥٣﴾

No! But they do not fear the Hereafter.

كَلَّاۤ إِنَّهُۥ تَذۡكِرَةࣱ ﴿٥٤﴾

No! Indeed, the Qur'an is a reminder

فَمَن شَاۤءَ ذَكَرَهُۥ ﴿٥٥﴾

Then whoever wills will remember it.

وَمَا یَذۡكُرُونَ إِلَّاۤ أَن یَشَاۤءَ ٱللَّهُۚ هُوَ أَهۡلُ ٱلتَّقۡوَىٰ وَأَهۡلُ ٱلۡمَغۡفِرَةِ ﴿٥٦﴾

And they will not remember except that Allah wills. He is worthy of fear and adequate for [granting] forgiveness.
