The Holy Qur'an Surah # 74

"The Cloaked One, The Man Wearing A Cloak"

- Verses: 1 to 56 "

Translated by A. Yusufali

 

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful; 

 

1 . O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)! 

2 . Arise and deliver thy warning! 

3 . And thy Lord do thou magnify! 

4 . And thy garments keep free from stain! 

5 . And all abomination shun! 

6 . Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)! 

7 . But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant! 

8 . Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, 

9 . That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,- 

10 . Far from easy for those without Faith. 

11 . Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!- 

12 . To whom I granted resources in abundance, 

13 . And sons to be by his side!- 

14 . To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! 

15 . Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- 

16 . By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory! 

17 . Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! 

18 . For he thought and he plotted;- 

19 . And woe to him! How he plotted!- 

20 . Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!- 

21 . Then he looked round; 

22 . Then he frowned and he scowled; 

23 . Then he turned back and was haughty; 

24 . Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; 

25 . "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" 

26 . Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! 

27 . And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? 

28 . Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!- 

29 . Darkening and changing the colour of man! 

30 . Over it are Nineteen. 

31 . And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. 

32 . Nay, verily: By the Moon, 

33 . And by the Night as it retreateth, 

34 . And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,- 

35 . This is but one of the mighty (portents), 

36 . A warning to mankind,- 

37 . To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;- 

38 . Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds. 

39 . Except the Companions of the Right Hand. 

40 . (They will be) in Gardens (of Delight): they will question each other, 

41 . And (ask) of the Sinners: 

42 . "What led you into Hell Fire?" 

43 . They will say: "We were not of those who prayed; 

44 . "Nor were we of those who fed the indigent; 

45 . "But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers; 

46 . "And we used to deny the Day of Judgment, 

47 . "Until there came to us (the Hour) that is certain." 

48 . Then will no intercession of (any) intercessors profit them. 

49 . Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from admonition?- 

50 . As if they were affrighted asses, 

51 . Fleeing from a lion! 

52 . Forsooth, each one of them wants to be given scrolls (of revelation) spread out! 

53 . By no means! But they fear not the Hereafter, 

54 . Nay, this surely is an admonition: 

55 . Let any who will, keep it in remembrance! 

56 . But none will keep it in remembrance except as Allah wills: He is the Lord of Righteousness, and the Lord of Forgiveness.
