By the heaven and its constellations!
By the promised Day of Judgment!
By the witnesses and that which is being witnessed!
Doomed be the makers of the ditch,
who lit the fuel-fed fire
and sat around it,
to watch what they were doing to the believers.
They tortured them for no other reason than that they believed in Allah, the All-Mighty, the Praise Worthy,
the One to Whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and earth, and Allah is Witness to all things.
Those who persecute the believing men and believing women and do not repent, shall receive the punishment of hell, wherein they shall have the punishment of conflagration.
As for those who believe and do good deeds, they shall have gardens beneath which rivers flow; which will be the greatest success.
Surely, the seizure of your Rabb is very severe.
Surely, He it is Who originates the creation of everything, and He it is Who will repeat it on the Day of Resurrection.
He is the Forgiving, the Loving,
the Owner of the Throne, the Glorious
and the executor of His own will.
Have you not heard the story of the warriors
of Fir'on (Pharaoh) and of Thamud?
Yet the unbelievers persist in denying the truth,
although Allah has encircled them from all around.
Surely this is a Glorious Qur'an,
inscribed on an Imperishable Tablet.
