79. Those Who Drag Forth | an-Nazi’at

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[79:1] I swear by those (angels) who pull out (the souls of the infidels) with extreme force,
[79:2] and by those (angels) who untie the knot (of the souls of the believers) smoothly,
[79:3] and by those who float (in the atmosphere) swiftly,
[79:4] then proceed forward quickly,
[79:5] then manage (to do) everything (they are ordered to do,)
[79:6] (you will be resurrected) on the Day when the shocking event (i.e. the first blowing of the trumpet) will shock (everything),
[79:7] followed by the next one (i.e. the second blowing of the trumpet.)
[79:8] On that day, hearts (of people) will be throbbing,
[79:9] with their eyes downcast.
[79:10] They (the infidels) say, .Are we going to be brought back to our former state (of Life)?
[79:11] Is it when we are turned into decayed bones?.
[79:12] They say, .If so, that will be a harmful homecoming..
[79:13] In fact, it will be only a single harsh voice,
[79:14] and in no time they will be (brought) into the plain (of Hashr).
[79:15] Has there come to you the narrative about Musa?
[79:16] (Recall) when his Lord called to him in the blessed valley of Tuwa:
[79:17] .Go to Firaun (Pharaoh). Indeed, he has crossed all bounds.
[79:18] And say (to him,) =Would you like to purify yourself,
[79:19] and that I should guide you to your Lord, so that you fear (Him)?‘.
[79:20] So, he (Musa) showed him the biggest sign.
[79:21] But he rejected and disobeyed,
[79:22] then he turned back, and tried hard (to refute the Messenger),
[79:23] then he gathered (his people) and shouted
[79:24] and said, .I am your supreme lord..
[79:25] So, Allah seized him for an exemplary punishment in the Hereafter and the present world.
[79:26] Indeed, there is a lesson for him who fears (Allah).
[79:27] Is your creation more difficult or that of the sky? He has built it,
[79:28] He has raised its height, then made it proper,
[79:29] and darkened its night, and brought forth its daylight,
[79:30] and, after that, He spread out the earth.
[79:31] From it, He brought out its water and its meadows,
[79:32] and firmly fixed the mountains,
[79:33] (all this) as a benefit to you and your cattle.
[79:34] So when the Greatest Havoc will take place
[79:35] on the day when man will recall what he did,
[79:36] and the Hell will be exposed for all who see,
[79:37] then for the one who had rebelled,
[79:38] and preferred the worldly life (to the Hereafter),
[79:39] the Hell will be the abode,
[79:40] whereas for the one who feared to stand before his Lord, and restrained his self from the (evil) desire,
[79:41] the Paradise will be the abode.
[79:42] They ask you (O Prophet,) about the Hour (the Day of Judgment) as to when it will take place.
[79:43] In which capacity are you to tell this?
[79:44] With your Lord is the final word about it.
[79:45] You are only a warner for anyone who fears it.
[79:46] The day they will see it, it will seem to them as if they did not live (in the world) but only for one afternoon or for the morning thereof.
