Qur'an

  Revealed 81st  

79:1
By those [angels] who extract with violence

79:2
And [by] those who remove with ease

79:3
And [by] those who glide [as if] swimming

79:4
And those who race each other in a race

79:5
And those who arrange [each] matter,

79:6
On the Day the quake will quake,

79:7
There will follow it the subsequent [one].

79:8
Hearts, that Day, will tremble,

79:9
Their eyes humbled.

79:10
They are [presently] saying, "Will we indeed be returned to [our] former state [of life]?

79:11
Even if we should be decayed bones?

79:12
They say, "That, then, would be a losing return."

79:13
Indeed, it will be but one shout, [*Jeremiah 25:30]

79:14
And suddenly they will be [alert] upon the earth's surface.

79:15
Has there reached you the story of Moses?  -

79:16
When his Lord called to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa,

79:17
"Go to Pharaoh.  Indeed, he has transgressed.

79:18
And say to him, 'Would you [be willing to] purify yourself

79:19
And let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?'"

79:20
And he showed him the greatest sign,

79:21
But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed.

79:22
Then he turned his back, striving.

79:23
And he gathered [his people] and called out

79:24
And said, "I am your most exalted lord."

79:25
So God seized him in exemplary punishment for the last and the first [transgression].

79:26
Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [God].

79:27
Are you a more difficult creation or is the heaven?  God constructed it.

79:28
He raised its ceiling and proportioned it.

79:29
And He darkened its night and extracted its brightness.

79:30
And after that He spread the earth.

79:31
He extracted from it its water and its pasture,

79:32
And the mountains He set firmly

79:33
As provision for you and your grazing livestock.

79:34
But when there comes the greatest Overwhelming Calamity -

79:35
The Day when man will remember that for which he strove,

79:36
And Hellfire will be exposed for [all] those who see -

79:37
So as for he who transgressed

79:38
And preferred the life of the world,

79:39
Then indeed, Hellfire will be [his] refuge.

79:40
But as for he who feared the position of his Lord and prevented the soul from [unlawful] inclination,

79:41
Then indeed, Paradise will be [his] refuge.

79:42
They ask you about the Hour, when is its arrival?

79:43
In what [position] are you that you should mention it?

79:44
To your Lord is its finality.

79:45
You are only a warner for those who fear it.

79:46
It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof.
