Sura Al-Muddathir (The One Enveloped)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    74:1-5 O you enveloped in your cloak, arise and warn! Your Lord magnify, your raiment purify, pollution shun!

    74:6-7 And show not favor, seeking worldly gain! For the sake of your Lord, be patient!

    74:8-10 For when the Trumpet shall sound, surely that Day will be a Day of anguish, not of ease, for disbelievers.

    74:11-29 Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, and then bestowed upon him ample means, and sons abiding in his presence, and made (life) smooth for him. Yet he desires that I should give more. Nay! For lo! he has been stubborn to Our revelations. On him I shall impose a fearful punishment. For lo! He did consider; then he planned.(Self-) destroyed is he, how he planned! Again (self-) destroyed is he, how he planned! Then looked he, then frowned he and showed displeasure. Then turned he away in pride, and said: This is nothing else than magic of old; this is nothing else than speech of mortal man. Him shall I fling to the burning – Ah, what will convey to you what that burning is! .It leaves nothing; it spares nothing. It shrivels the man.

    74:30-31 Above it are nineteen. We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture has been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture has been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What means God by this similitude? Thus God sends astray whom He wills, and whom He wills He guides. None knows the hosts of your Lord except Him. This is nothing else than a Reminder to mortals.

    74:32-37 Nay, by the moon, and the night when it withdraws, and the dawn when it shines forth. Lo! This is one of the greatest (signs) as a warning to men, to him of you who will advance or hang back.

    74:38-47 Every soul is a pledge for its own deeds; except those who will stand on the right hand. In Gardens they will ask one another concerning the guilty: What has brought you to this burning? They will answer: We were not of those who prayed nor did we feed the wretched. We used to wade (in vain dispute) with(all) waders, and we used to deny the Day of Judgment, till the inevitability of death came to us.

    74:48-54 The mediation of no mediators will avail them then. Why now turn they away from the admonishment as if they were frightened asses fleeing from a lion? Nay, but every one of them desires that he should be given open pages (from God). Nay, verily. They fear not the Hereafter. Nay, verily. Lo! This is an admonishment.

    74:55-56 So whosoever wills may heed. And they will not heed unless God wills (it). He is worthy of our piety and the One Who forgives.
