By those [stars] who rise only to sit.
And move [in their orbits] steadily.
And float [through space] smoothly.
And yet some overtake [others] swiftly.
Thus they fulfill the [Creator's] purpose.
On the Day when the world will shudder.
Followed by a tremor.
Hearts, that Day, will shiver,
and eyes are humbled.
They say, "Are we to be restored to the original condition"?
After we have turned into decayed bones?
They say, "This will be a losing come back."
But all it will take is a single blast,
and they will be awake and above ground.
Has there the story of Moses reached you?
When his Lord called out to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa,
"Go to Pharaoh. For he has transgressed,
and ask him, "Would you be willing to purify yourself?
And I will guide you to your Lord so you would be in awe of Him.
And he showed him the greatest sign,
but Pharaoh rejected the offer and disobeyed.
Then he hastily turned away,
and gathered [his people] and proclaimed,
"I am your lord, the most high."
So God seized him with punishment, as an example, in the life to come as well as in this life:
In this, there is a warning for whomever would fear [God].
Are you more difficult to create or is the heaven that He built?
He raised it high and proportioned it.
He darkened its night and brought out its morning light.
After that He spread out the earth.
From it, He produced its water and its pasture,
And He set the mountains firmly in place
for you and for your animals to enjoy.
But when the Great Calamity arrives,
a Day when the human being will remember what he has done,
and Hell will be there for all to see,
for him who transgressed
and preferred the life of this world,
Hell will be his home.
But as for him who feared to stand one day in front of his Lord and therefore restrained himself from following his whims and desires,
then Heaven will be home.
They ask you about the Hour, "When will it take place?"
How can you possibly know that?
Its time is only known to your Lord.
You are only to warn those who dread it.
On the Day they see it, it will seem as though they only stayed an evening or a morning.
