حم
Hā. Mīm. (1)
وَالْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ
CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth! (2)
إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةٍ مُبَارَكَةٍ إِنَّا كُنَّا مُنْذِرِينَ
Behold, from on high have We bestowed it on a blessed night: for, verily, We have always been warning [man]. (3)
فِيهَا يُفْرَقُ كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ
On that [night] was made clear, in wisdom, the distinction between all things [good and evil] (4)
أَمْرًا مِنْ عِنْدِنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا مُرْسِلِينَ
at a behest from Ourselves: for, verily, We have always been sending [Our messages of guidance] (5)
رَحْمَةً مِنْ رَبِّكَ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ
in pursuance of thy Sustainer's grace [unto man]. Verily, He alone is all-hearing, all-knowing, (6)
رَبِّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُوقِنِينَ
the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them – if you could but grasp it with inner certainty! (7)
لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ رَبُّكُمْ وَرَبُّ آبَائِكُمُ الْأَوَّلِينَ
There is no deity save Him: He grants life and deals death: He is your Sustainer as well as the Sustainer of your forebears of old. (8)
بَلْ هُمْ فِي شَكٍّ يَلْعَبُونَ
Nay, but they [who lack inner certainty] are but toying with their doubts. (9)
فَارْتَقِبْ يَوْمَ تَأْتِي السَّمَاءُ بِدُخَانٍ مُبِينٍ
WAIT, THEN, for the Day when the skies shall bring forth a pall of smoke which will make obvious [the approach of the Last Hour], (10)
