79:1  By those ˹angels˺ stripping out ˹evil souls˺ harshly,
79:2  and those pulling out ˹good souls˺ gently,
79:3  and those gliding ˹through heavens˺ swiftly,
79:4  and those taking the lead vigorously,
79:5  and those conducting affairs ˹obediently˺!
79:6  ˹Consider˺ the Day ˹when˺ the quaking Blast will come to pass,
79:7  followed by a second Blast.
79:8  ˹The deniers’˺ hearts on that Day will be trembling ˹in horror˺,
79:9  with their eyes downcast.
79:10  ˹But now˺ they ask ˹mockingly˺, “Will we really be restored to our former state,
79:11  even after we have been reduced to decayed bones?”
79:12  Adding, “Then such a return would be a ˹total˺ loss ˹for us˺!”
79:13  But indeed, it will take only one ˹mighty˺ Blast,
79:14  and at once they will be above ground.
79:15  Has the story of Moses reached you ˹O Prophet˺?
79:16  His Lord called him in the sacred valley of Ṭuwa,
79:17  ˹commanding,˺ “Go to Pharaoh, for he has truly transgressed ˹all bounds˺.
79:18  And say, ‘Would you ˹be willing to˺ purify yourself,
79:19  and let me guide you to your Lord so that you will be in awe ˹of Him˺?’”
79:20  Then Moses showed him the great sign,
79:21  but he denied and disobeyed ˹Allah˺,
79:22  then turned his back, striving ˹against the truth˺.
79:23  Then he summoned ˹his people˺ and called out,
79:24  saying, “I am your lord, the most high!”
79:25  So Allah overtook him, making him an example in this life and the next.
79:26  Surely in this is a lesson for whoever stands in awe of ˹Allah˺.
79:27  Which is harder to create: you or the sky? He built it,
79:28  raising it high and forming it flawlessly.
79:29  He dimmed its night, and brought forth its daylight.
79:30  As for the earth, He spread it out as well,
79:31  bringing forth its water and pastures
79:32  and setting the mountains firmly ˹upon it˺—
79:33  all as ˹a means of˺ sustenance for you and your animals.
79:34  But, when the Supreme Disaster comes to pass—
79:35  the Day every person will remember all ˹their˺ striving,
79:36  and the Hellfire will be displayed for all to see—
79:37  then as for those who transgressed
79:38  and preferred the ˹fleeting˺ life of this world,
79:39  the Hellfire will certainly be ˹their˺ home.
79:40  And as for those who were in awe of standing before their Lord and restrained themselves from ˹evil˺ desires,
79:41  Paradise will certainly be ˹their˺ home.
79:42  They ask you ˹O Prophet˺ regarding the Hour, “When will it be?”
79:43  But it is not for you to tell its time.
79:44  That knowledge rests with your Lord ˹alone˺.
79:45  Your duty is only to warn whoever is in awe of it.
79:46  On the Day they see it, it will be as if they had stayed ˹in the world˺ no more than one evening or its morning.
