I swear by those (angels) dragging out (the soul of the Impious) violently:
And those taking away (the soul of the Pious) gently:
And those gliding throughout the heavens:
And those taking the lead strenuously:
And those carrying out the Command of Allâh:
(Beware of a day) when the earth-shaking blast will come to pass,
Then followed by a second blast,
So the hearts (of the impious), on that day, will be palpitating
And their eyes downcast.
They say: “What! Are we really brought back to our former state?
How can this possibly happen after we have become decayed bones?’
Adding: “Then such a return would be a perditious return for us!”
But verily, it will be no more than a mighty blast.
Then suddenly they are awakened.
Has there come to you the anecdote of Moses
When his Lord called upon him in the Scared Valley of Towa?
"Go to Pharaoh: Surely he has become inordinate.”
And Say to him: “Would you be willing to purify yourself (or to attain positive spiritual growth),
And that I show you the path to your Lord so that you may show honor and reverence for (him)?“
Moses showed him the Mighty Sign,
But he denied and refused to yield to the truth.
Then He turned away (in aversion), striving (to convince his people not to follow Mosses).
Then he summoned his people and proclaimed:
“I am your lord, the most high."
So Allâh seized him with punishment of the Hereafter and the former life.
Most surely in (this punishment), there is a lesson for whoever shows honor and reverence for Allâh.
What! (Do you think) you are harder to create than the sky which he has constructed it?
He raised its height and perfectly proportioned it.
And He darkened its night and brought forth its daylight.
Then after that He spread out the earth,
Bringing forth its water and vegetation,
And setting firmly the mountains.
All this was done as a means of sustenance for you and your grazing livestock to enjoy.
Therefore, when the Great Catastrophe comes,
Then Man will remember, on that day, what he used to strive for,
And Hellfire will be made manifest to the one who sees.
So as for the one who transgresses,
And prefers this worldly life (over the Hereafter),
Then surely Hell shall be the abode.
But as for he who stands in awe of the absolute majesty and glory of his Lord, and guards himself against all temptation,
Then Al-Jannah will most definitely be (his) eternal home.
They ask you about the Hour: “When will it take place?”
About what! That is outside the scope of your knowledge.
Its ultimate knowledge belongs solely to your Lord.
Your duty is only to warn whoever turns to Allâh in Faith seeking salvation.
On the day when it is made manifest to them, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or its morn.
