By the Scripture that maketh plain
Lo! We revealed it on a blessed night - Lo! We are ever warning -
Whereon every wise command is made clear
As a command from Our presence - Lo! We are ever sending -
A mercy from thy Lord. Lo! He, even He is the Hearer, the Knower,
Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if ye would be sure.
There is no Allah save Him. He quickeneth and giveth death; your Lord and Lord of your forefathers.
Nay, but they play in doubt.
But watch thou (O Muhammad) for the day when the sky will produce visible smoke
That will envelop the people. This will be a painful torment.
(Then they will say): Our Lord relieve us of the torment. Lo! we are believers.
How can there be remembrance for them, when a messenger making plain (the Truth) had already come unto them,
And they had turned away from him and said: One taught (by others), a madman?
Lo! We withdraw the torment a little. Lo! ye return (to disbelief).
On the day when We shall seize them with the greater seizure, (then) in truth We shall punish.
And verily We tried before them Pharaoh´s folk, when there came unto them a noble messenger,
Saying: Give up to me the slaves of Allah. Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you.
And saying: Be not proud against Allah. Lo! I bring you a clear warrant.
And lo! I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord lest ye stone me to death.
