It does not let anyone live or die,1

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

It lets nothing remain and leaves nothing [unburned],

— Saheeh International

scorching the skin.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Altering [i.e., blackening] the skins.

— Saheeh International

It is overseen by nineteen ˹keepers˺.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Over it are nineteen [angels].

— Saheeh International

We have appointed only ˹stern˺ angels as wardens of the Fire. And We have made their number only as a test for the disbelievers,1 so that the People of the Book will be certain, and the believers will increase in faith, and neither the People of the Book nor the believers will have any doubts, and so that those ˹hypocrites˺ with sickness in their hearts and the disbelievers will argue, “What does Allah mean by such a number?” In this way Allah leaves whoever He wills to stray and guides whoever He wills. And none knows the forces of your Lord except He. And this ˹description of Hell˺ is only a reminder to humanity.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is disease [i.e., hypocrisy] and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah send astray whom He wills and guide whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And it [i.e., mention of the Fire] is not but a reminder to humanity.

— Saheeh International

And [by] the night when it departs.

— Saheeh International

and the day as it breaks!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And [by] the morning when it brightens,

— Saheeh International

Surely Hell is one of the mightiest catastrophes—

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Indeed, it [i.e., the Fire] is of the greatest [afflictions].

— Saheeh International

a warning to humankind,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

As a warning to humanity -

— Saheeh International

ﯿ

to whichever of you chooses to take the lead or lag behind.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

To whoever wills among you to proceed1 or stay behind.

— Saheeh International

Every soul will be detained for what it has done,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Every soul, for what it has earned, will be retained1.

— Saheeh International
