Asalam o alykum, welcome to 144th part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read verse 30 to 59 of Surah Ad-Dukhan. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
30- We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment,
31- Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.
32- And We chose them aforetime above the nations, knowingly,
33- And We granted them Signs in which there was a manifest trial
34- As to these (Quraish), they say forsooth:
35- “There is nothing beyond our first death, and we shall not be raised again.”
36- “Then bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!”
37- What! Are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin.
38- We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, merely in (idle) sport:
39- We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.
40- Verily the Day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them,-
41- The Day when no protector can avail his client in aught, and no help can they receive,
42- Except such as receive Allah.s Mercy: for He is Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
43- Verily the tree of Zaqqum
44- Will be the food of the Sinful,-
45- Like molten brass; it will boil in their insides.
46- Like the boiling of scalding water.
47- (A voice wil cry: “Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire!)
48- “Then pour over his head the Penalty of Boiling water,”
49- “Taste thou (this)! Truly wast thou mighty, full of honour!”
50- “Truly this is what ye used to doubt!”
51- As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of Security,
52- Among Gardens and Springs;
53- Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, they will face each other;
54- So; and We shall join them to Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.
55- There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security;
56- Nor will they there taste Death, except the first death; and He will preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire,-
57- As a Bounty from thy Lord! that will be the supreme achievement!
58- Verily, We have made this (Quran) easy, in thy tongue, in order that they may give heed.
59- So wait thou and watch; for they (too) are waiting.
May Allah Help us act upon the knowledge we receive from the Holy Quran. (Ameen)
