(I swear by the angels) _ those who (violently) wrench out (the souls of the unbelievers)
And those who (gently) draw out (the souls of the believers)
Those who swiftly glide along (in the universe)
Those who rush to carry out
And execute the commands (of the Lord)
That day, (the Day of Decision), a violent jolt will rock (the earth)
And another (jolt) will (soon) follow
That day, hearts would pound (in panic)
And eyes would drift downward (with dread)
They are saying, "What? Would we really be restored back to our former (state of) existence?"
"Even after we are (just) crumbling bones?"
They say, "Such a (revival and) recurrence is hence a losing proposition."
(In fact), it will just take a single rebuke
And at once they will appear on the surface
Has the story of Musa reached you
His Lord summoned him to the holy valley of ´Tuwa´
(And said), "Go to the pharaoh, he is really rebellious."
And ask him, "Are you willing to accept purity?"
"(If so), I will guide you towards your Lord; fear Him."
And Musa showed him the great sign
But the pharaoh denied and disobeyed
And turned back to hatch a scheme
Then he assembled (his cronies) and announced
He said, "I am your Lord, the most high!"
So, (as a punishment), Allah turned him into an example in the afterlife, as well as in this life
Of course, there is a lesson in it for all who fear (the reckoning)
(Oh mankind)! Are you the harder to create, or is it the heavens which He built
He raised its vault high, and gave it balance
He imbued the night with darkness, and drew out its morning (glow)
And after that, He spread out the earth
He drafted off its water and produced the fodder
And He fixed the mountains firmly
(All that) for your needs, and those of your livestock
When that most grievous disaster befalls
Man, that day, shall recall all he ever (stood and) strove for
And the hell shall (loom large, and) be made visible to all
Anyone who transgressed (and rebelled)
And preferred the life of this world (to the afterlife)
Would really have hell for a home
While anyone who feared having to stand before his Lord (for a reckoning), and guarded himself against (the base and banal) desires
Would certainly have the paradise for a home
(Oh prophet), they ask you about the hour (of Judgment), "When will that (hour) come to pass?"
It is not for you to forecast the (actual) date (of its occurrence)
That (knowledge) rests solely with your Lord
You are there to warn anyone who fears (that day)
When they see that day, it will actually be like they have lived (in this world) for just one morning, or a single afternoon
