Surah Ad-Dukhan 44:41-59

44:41 The Day when no friend shall be of the least avail to his friend, and when none shall be succored. 

44:42 Save those upon whom God will have bestowed His grace and mercy, for, Verily, He alone is Almighty, a Dispenser of Grace.

44:43 Verily, [in the life to come] the tree of deadly fruit.

44:44 Will be the food of the sinful.

44:45 Like molten lead will it boil in the belly

44:46 Like the boiling of burning despair.

44:47 [And the word will be spoken] “Seize him, [O you forces of hell] and drag him into the midst of the blazing fire

44:48 Then pour over his head the anguish of burning despair!  

44:49 Taste it – thou who [on earth] hast considered thyself so mighty, so noble!

44:50 This is the very thing which you [deniers of the truth] were wont to call in question!”

44:51 [As against this] Verily, the God-conscious will find themselves in a state secure. 

44:52 Amid gardens and springs. 

44:53 Wearing [garments] of silk and brocade, facing one another [in love].

44:54 Thus shall it be. And We shall pair them with companions pure, most beautiful of eye.

44:55 In that [paradise] they shall [rightfully] claim all the fruits [of their past deeds], resting in security. 

44:56 And neither shall they taste death thereafter having passed through their erstwhile death. Thus will He have preserved them from all suffering through the blazing fire. 

44:57 An act of thy Sustainer’s favor, and that, that will be the triumph supreme!

44:58 Thus, Then, [O Prophet] have We made this [divine writ] easy to understand, in thine own [human] tongue, so that men might take it to heart.

44:59 So wait for thou [for what the future will bring], behold, they, too, are wa1ting.


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
