79:1 - By those who drag forth to destruction,

79:2 - By the meteors rushing,

79:3 - By the lone stars floating,

79:4 - By the angels hastening,

79:5 - And those who govern the event,

79:6 - On the day when the first trump resoundeth.

79:7 - And the second followeth it,

79:8 - On that day hearts beat painfully

79:9 - While eyes are downcast

79:10 - (Now) they are saying: Shall we really be restored to our first state

79:11 - Even after we are crumbled bones?

79:12 - They say: Then that would be a vain proceeding.

79:13 - Surely it will need but one shout,

79:14 - And lo! they will be awakened.

79:15 - Hath there come unto thee the history of Moses?

79:16 - How his Lord called him in the holy vale of Tuwa,

79:17 - (Saying:) Go thou unto Pharaoh - Lo! he hath rebelled -

79:18 - And say (unto him): Hast thou (will) to grow (in grace)?

79:19 - Then I will guide thee to thy Lord and thou shalt fear (Him).

79:20 - And he showed him the tremendous token.

79:21 - But he denied and disobeyed,

79:22 - Then turned he away in haste,

79:23 - Then gathered he and summoned

79:24 - And proclaimed: "I (Pharaoh) am your Lord the Highest."

79:25 - So Allah seized him (and made him) an example for the after (life) and for the former.

79:26 - Lo! herein is indeed a lesson for him who feareth.

79:27 - Are ye the harder to create, or is the heaven that He built?

79:28 - He raised the height thereof and ordered it;

79:29 - And He made dark the night thereof, and He brought forth the morn thereof.

79:30 - And after that He spread the earth,

79:31 - And produced therefrom the water thereof and the pasture thereof,

79:32 - And He made fast the hills,

79:33 - A provision for you and for your cattle.

79:34 - But when the great disaster cometh,

79:35 - The day when man will call to mind his (whole) endeavour,

79:36 - And hell will stand forth visible to him who seeth,

79:37 - Then, as for him who rebelled

79:38 - And chose the life of the world,

79:39 - Lo! hell will be his home.

79:40 - But as for him who feared to stand before his Lord and restrained his soul from lust,

79:41 - Lo! the Garden will be his home.

79:42 - They ask thee of the Hour: when will it come to port?

79:43 - Why (ask they)? What hast thou to tell thereof?

79:44 - Unto thy Lord belongeth (knowledge of) the term thereof.

79:45 - Thou art but a warner unto him who feareth it.

79:46 - On the day when they behold it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn thereof.
