079 : Those Who Drag Forth

79:1
By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence;

79:2
By those who gently draw out (the souls of the blessed);

79:3
And by those who glide along (on errands of mercy),

79:4
Then press forward as in a race,

79:5
Then arrange to do (the Commands of their Lord),

79:6
One Day everything that can be in commotion will be in violent commotion,

79:7
Followed by oft-repeated (commotions):

79:8
Hearts that Day will be in agitation;

79:9
Cast down will be (their owners') eyes.

79:10
They say (now): "What! shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state?

79:11
"What! - when we shall have become rotten bones?"

79:12
They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!"

79:13
But verily, it will be but a single (Compelling) Cry,

79:14
When, behold, they will be in the (full) awakening (to Judgment).

79:15
Has the story of Moses reached thee?

79:16
Behold, thy Lord did call to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa:-

79:17
"Go thou to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds:

79:18
"And say to him, 'Wouldst thou that thou shouldst be purified (from sin)?-

79:19
"'And that I guide thee to thy Lord, so thou shouldst fear Him?'"

79:20
Then did (Moses) show him the Great Sign.

79:21
But (Pharaoh) rejected it and disobeyed (guidance);

79:22
Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah).

79:23
Then he collected (his men) and made a proclamation,

79:24
Saying, "I am your Lord, Most High".

79:25
But Allah did punish him, (and made an) example of him, - in the Hereafter, as in this life.

79:26
Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever feareth (Allah).

79:27
What! Are ye the more difficult to create or the heaven (above)? (Allah) hath constructed it:

79:28
On high hath He raised its canopy, and He hath given it order and perfection.

79:29
Its night doth He endow with darkness, and its splendour doth He bring out (with light).

79:30
And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide expanse);

79:31
He draweth out therefrom its moisture and its pasture;

79:32
And the mountains hath He firmly fixed;-

79:33
For use and convenience to you and your cattle.

79:34
Therefore, when there comes the great, overwhelming (Event),-

79:35
The Day when man shall remember (all) that he strove for,

79:36
And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see,-

79:37
Then, for such as had transgressed all bounds,

79:38
And had preferred the life of this world,

79:39
The Abode will be Hell-Fire;

79:40
And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (tribunal) and had restrained (their) soul from lower desires,

79:41
Their abode will be the Garden.

79:42
They ask thee about the Hour,-'When will be its appointed time?

79:43
Wherein art thou (concerned) with the declaration thereof?

79:44
With thy Lord in the Limit fixed therefor.

79:45
Thou art but a Warner for such as fear it.

79:46
The Day they see it, (It will be) as if they had tarried but a single evening, or (at most till) the following morn!
