Sura 56
Aya 42
في سَمومٍ وَحَميمٍ

Yusuf Ali

(They will be) in the midst of a Fierce Blast of Fire1 and in Boiling Water,
  • Notice the parallelism in the contrast between those in Bliss and those in Misery. The allegory in each case pursues the idea of contrast, and the allegories about Misery lose nothing by their terse brevity. The fierce Blast of Fire and the Boiling Water are in contrast to the happy Lote tree and the flowers and fruits in verses 28-29 above.
