Chapter 79:
Al-Nazi'at — Those Who Yearn:

Revealed at Makkah: 2 sections; 46 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


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.
