079. Those Who Pull Out

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
1.I swear by the angels who violently pull out the souls of the wicked,
2.And by those who gently draw out the souls of the blessed,
3.And by those who float in space,
4.Then those who are foremost going ahead,
S.Then those who regulate the affair
6.The day on which the quaking one shall quake,
7.What must happen afterwards shall follow it
8.Hearts on that day shall palpitate,
9.Their eyes cast down
10.They say: Shall we indeed be restored to (our) first state?
11.What! when we are rotten bones?
12.They said: That then would be a return occasioning loss
13.But it shall be only a single cry,
14.When lo! they shall be wakeful
15.Has not there come to you the story of Musa?
16.When his Lord called upon him in the holy valley, twice,
17.Go to Firon, surely he has become inordinate
18.Then say: Have you (a desire) to purify yourself:
19.And I will guide you to your Lord so that you should fear.
20.So he showed him the mighty sign
21.But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed
22.Then he went back hastily
23.Then he gathered (men) and called out
24.Then he said: I am your lord, the most high
25.So Allah seized him with the punishment of the hereafter and the former life.
26.Most surely there is in this a lesson to him who fears
27.Are you the harder to create or the heaven? He made it
28.He raised high its height, then put it into a right good state.
29.And He made dark its night and brought out its light
30.And the earth, He expanded it after that
31.He brought forth from it its water and its pasturage
32.And the mountains, He made them firm,
33.A provision for you and for your cattle
34.But when the great predominating calamity comes;
35.The day on which man shall recollect what he strove after,
36.And the hell shall be made manifest to him who sees
37.Then as for him who is inordinate,
38.And prefers the life of this world,
39.Then surely the hell, that is the abode
40.And as for him who fears to stand in the presence of his Lord and forbids the soul from low desires,
41.Then surely the garden-- that is the abode
42.They ask you about the hour, when it will come
43.About what! You are one to remind of it
44.To your Lord is the goal of it
45.You are only a warner to him who would fear it
46.On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.
