By those that dive and extract,
And by those [winds?] that briskly pass by
And by the floaters [clouds?] that float b
And then overtake others, leaving the latter behind
And then execute a [divine] Order [to rain.
[There shall come] a Day when a violent convulsion will convulse [the world]
The subsequent convulsion shall follow the first
Hearts that Day will be throbbing
Sights that Day will be lowered
They ask, "Shall we be brought back to life [after death?]"
"Even when we are crumbled bones!?"
They say, "This in that event would be a damaging return."
It will but be a single blast
And then they all will come awake [from their deep slumber of death]
Has Moses' story come down to you
When his Lord called out to him by the sacred valley of Tuwa
"Go to Pharaoh! He has indeed exceeded all bounds,"
"You then ask him, `Would you like to reform?'"
"`Would you allow me to guide you to your Lord, so that you fear Him?'"
Moses then showed him the great Sign [staff turning into snake and hand turning white]
But he [Pharaoh] refused to acknowledge the divine Sign and obey Allah
He then turned his back hastil
To summon and collect his people
He then proclaimed to them, "I am your lord supreme!"
Allah then seized him for punishment both in the Hereafter and here
There is indeed a lesson in this for those who fear Allah
Are you more difficult to create or the heaven to construct
HE raised its structure and then balanced it aright
And made its night dark and its day bright
And the earth thereafter — He spread it out
He brought out from it its water and its pasture
And He made the mountains firm
[He has provided] means of sustenance for you and your animals
So when the great event occurs
That Day man would recount what he strove for
And the Hell would be made manifest for all to see
And then anyone who had transgressed divinely set bounds
And had preferred the life of this world
That one's abode shall indeed be in Hell
And one who had been afraid of standing before his Lord and had restrained one's self from carnal desires
That one's abode shall indeed be in Paradise
They ask you [Prophet] about the Hour (the time when the present world will end and the Hereafter begin), "When is it coming?"
What have you to do with the mentioning of it [the time of the occurrence of the Hour]
With your Lord rests the final and only Authority to know when the Hour would happen
You [Prophet] are but a warner for those who fear it [the Hour]
The Day they see it [the Hereafter], they will feel as if they had stayed for only one evening or one morning thereof.
