In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
79:1 By those yearning vehemently!
79:2 And those going forth cheerfully!
79:3 And those running swiftly!
79:4 And those that are foremost going ahead!
79:5 And those regulating the Affair!
79:6 The day when the quaking one shall quake —
79:7 The consequence will follow it.
79:8 Hearts that day will palpitate,
79:9 Their eyes downcast.
79:10 They say: Shall we indeed be restored to (our) first state?
79:11 What! After we are rotten bones?
79:12 They say: That would then be a return with loss.
79:13 It is only a single cry,
79:14 When lo! they will be awakened.
79:15 Has not there come to thee the story of Moses,
79:16 When his Lord called him in the holy valley, Tuwa?
79:17 Go to Pharaoh, surely he has rebelled.
79:18 And say: Wilt thou purify thyself?
79:19 And I will guide thee to thy Lord so that thou fear (Him).
79:20 So he showed him the mighty sign;
79:21 But he denied and disobeyed.
79:22 Then he went back hastily,
79:23 So he gathered and called out.
79:24 Then he said: I am your Lord, the most High.
79:25 So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Hereafter and of this life.
79:26 Surely there is in this a lesson for him who fears.
79:27 Are you the stronger in creation or the heaven? He made it.
79:28 He raised high its height, and made it perfect,
79:29 And He made dark its night and brought out its light.
79:30 And the earth, He cast it after that.
79:31 He brought forth from it its water and its pasture.
79:32 And the mountains, He made them firm,
79:33 A provision for you and for your cattle.
79:34 So when the great Calamity comes;
79:35 The day when man remembers all that he strove for,
79:36 And hell is made manifest to him who sees.
79:37 Then as for him who is inordinate,
79:38 And prefers the life of this world,
79:39 Hell is surely the abode.
79:40 And as for him who fears to stand before his Lord and restrains himself from low desires,
79:41 The Garden is surely the abode.
79:42 They ask thee about the Hour, When will that take place,
79:43 About which thou remindest?
79:44 To thy Lord is the goal of it.
79:45 Thou art only a warner to him who fears it.
79:46 On the day when they see it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or a morning.
