You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
By those (angels) who violently pull out (the souls of the disbelievers),
by those (angels) who gently draw out (the souls of the believers),
by those (angels) who swim swiftly (through space),
by those (angels) who press forward in a race (to fulfill Allah’s orders),
by those (angels) who arrange to execute the commands (of their Lord).
On the Day when the first blowing of the trumpet will shake (the earth, the mountains, and everybody will die),
the second blowing of the trumpet will follow it (everybody will raise up).
On that Day, hearts will beat (with fear and anxiety),
their eyes will be downcast.
They (disbelievers) say: “Shall we really be returned to the former state of life,
when we will become crumbled bones?”
They say: “In that case, it would be a return with loss!”
But it will be only a single shout (the second blowing of the trumpet),
when they will be awakened (alive after death).
Have you heard the story of Moses?
When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa,
and said: “Go to Pharaoh, surely he has transgressed all bounds,
and say to him: ‘Do you have the desire to purify yourself (from sins)?
I will guide you to your Lord, so that you may fear (Him).’”
Then he (Moses) showed him (Pharaoh) the great sign (miracles),
but he (Pharaoh) denied and disobeyed.
Then he turned his back and strive (against Allah),
gathered his people and cried aloud,
saying: “I am your Lord, most high.”
So Allah seized him with punishment for the Hereafter and this life.
Surely, in this, there is an admonition for those who fear (Allah).
Are you (O mankind) more difficult to create or the heaven that He constructed?
He raised its canopy and perfected it,
He covers its night with darkness and brings out light in its forenoon.
And after that, He spreads out the earth,
and brings out its water and its pasture from there,
fixed the mountains firmly,
made a provision and benefit for you and for your cattle.
But when the greatest catastrophe (the Day of recompense) will strike,
the Day when people will remember what they had striven for.
When hellfire shall be made apparent in full view for those who see,
then, those who transgressed all bounds (evil deeds
and preferred the worldly life,
surely, will have their abode in hell.
But those who feared standing before their Lord and restrained themselves from evil desires,
then surely, will have their homes in Paradise.
They ask you (O Muhammad) about the Hour: “When will be its appointed time?”
But you have no knowledge to say anything about it.
Only your Lord (has knowledge of) the term of it.
You (O Muhammad) are only a Warner for those who fear it.
On that Day, when they will see it, it will be as if they had not stayed (in this world) only an afternoon or one morning.
