Holy Quran 79


1I CALL TO WITNESS those who dive and drag,
2And those who undo the bonds gently,
3And those who glide swimmingly,
4Then outpace the others swiftly
5And direct affairs by command,
6The day the convulsive (first blast) shatters convulsively
7Followed by the second blast,
8Hearts will pound loudly on that day,
9Eyes be lowered in submission.
10They say: "Shall we go back to our original state
11After having turned to carious bones?"
12They say: "Then this returning will be a dead loss."
13It will only be a single blast,
14And they will wake up suddenly.
15Has the story of Moses come to you
16When his Lord called to him in Tuwa's holy vale?
17"Go to the Pharaoh who has become refractory,
18And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)?
19Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'"
20So he showed him the greater sign;
21But (the Pharaoh) disavowed and disobeyed.
22Then he turned away, deliberating,
23And assembled (his council) and proclaimed,
24Saying: "I am alone your lord, the highest of them all."
25So God seized him for the punishment of the Hereafter and this world.
26Truly there is a lesson in this for those who fear (the consequences).
27Are you more difficult to create or the heavens? He built it,
28Raised it high, proportioned it,
29Gave darkness to its night, and brightness to its day;
30And afterwards spread out the earth.
31He brought out its water and its pastures from it,
32And stabilized the mountains
33As convenience for you and your cattle.
34When the great calamity comes,
35The day when man remembers all that he had done,
36And Hell made visible to him who can see,
37Then he who had been rebellious
38And who preferred the life of the world,
39Will surely have Hell for his abode.
40But he who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained his self from vain desires,
41Will surely have Paradise for abode.
42They ask you: "When will the Hour be? When is its time fixed?"
43What do you have to do with explaining it?
44The extent of its knowledge goes to your Lord.
45Your duty is only to warn him who fears it.
46The day they see it, it will seem they had stayed in the world but only an evening or its turning into dawn.
