79:1  By those angels who DRAG FORTH souls with violence
79:2  And by those who with joyous release release them
79:3  By those who swim swimmingly along
79:4  By those who are foremost with foremost speed
79:5  By those who conduct the affairs of the universe
79:6  One day, the disturbing trumpet-blast shall disturb it
79:7  Which the second blast shall follow
79:8  Men's hearts on that day shall quake:
79:9  Their looks be downcast
79:10  The infidels will say, "Shall we indeed be restored as at first
79:11  What! when we have become rotten bones?"
79:12  "This then," say they, "will be a return to loss."
79:13  Verily, it will be but a single blast
79:14  And lo! they are on the surface of the earth
79:15  Hath the story of Moses reached thee
79:16  When his Lord called to him in Towa's holy vale
79:17  Go to Pharaoh, for he hath burst all bounds
79:18  And say, "Wouldest thou become just
79:19  Then I will guide thee to thy Lord that thou mayest fear him."
79:20  And he showed him a great miracle,
79:21  But he treated him as an impostor, and rebelled
79:22  Then turned he his back all hastily
79:23  And gathered an assembly and proclaimed
79:24  And said, "I am your Lord supreme."
79:25  So God visited on him the punishment of this life and of the other
79:26  Verily, herein is a lesson for him who hath the fear of God
79:27  Are ye the harder to create, or the heaven which he hath built
79:28  He reared its height and fashioned it
79:29  And gave darkness to its night, and brought out its light
79:30  And afterwards stretched forth the earth,
79:31  He brought forth from it its waters and its pastures
79:32  And set the mountains fir
79:33  For you and your cattle to enjoy
79:34  But when the grand overthrow shall come
79:35  The day when a man shall reflect on the pains that he hath taken
79:36  And Hell shall be in full view of all who are looking on
79:37  Then, as for him who hath transgresse
79:38  And hath chosen this present life
79:39  Verily, Hell - that shall be his dwelling-place
79:40  But as to him who shall have feared the majesty of his Lord, and shall have refrained his soul from lust
79:41  Verily, Paradise - that shall be his dwelling-place
79:42  They will ask thee of "the Hour," when will be its fixed time
79:43  But what knowledge hast thou of it
79:44  Its period is known only to thy Lord
79:45  And thou art only charged with the warning of those who fear it
79:46  On the day when they shall see it, it shall seem to them as though they had not tarried in the tomb, longer than its evening or its morn
