- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions a divine portent of an evil destiny that will come in the appearance of something unknown called the Smoke. It manifests in the sky and enveils the unbelievers on the earth, until they cry in vain to God that they shall believe in the Quran and its Messenger of only He delivers them from this torment. It takes its name from the "smoke" (dukhān) mentioned in verse 10. The surah highlights the mercy that is the Quran, addresses the obduracy of the powerful and wealthy oppressors, and draws comparisons between the people of Pharaoh, Tubbaʾ, and the Meccans. The people of Paradise will enjoy heavenly bliss while those who were mighty in this world will suffer the torments of Hell.
The surah is also known as: Mist.
