Sura 79
No. of Verses: 46


[79:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

  
[79:1] The (angels who) snatch (the souls of the disbelievers) forcibly.

  
[79:2] And those who gently take (the souls of the believers) joyfully.

  
[79:3] And those floating everywhere.

  
[79:4] Eagerly racing with one another

  
[79:5] to carry out various commands.

  
[79:6] The day the quake quakes.

  
[79:7] Followed by the second blow.

  
[79:8] Certain minds will be terrified.

  
[79:9] Their eyes will be subdued.

  
[79:10] They will say, "We have been recreated from the grave!

  
[79:11] "How did this happen after we had turned into rotten bones?"

  
[79:12] They had said, "This is an impossible recurrence."

  
[79:13] All it takes is one nudge.

  
[79:14] Whereupon they get up.


  
[79:15] Have you known about the history of Moses?

  
[79:16] His Lord called him at the holy valley of Tuwaa.

  
[79:17] "Go to Pharaoh; he has transgressed."

  
[79:18] Tell him, "Would you not reform?

  
[79:19] "Let me guide you to your Lord, that you may turn reverent."

  
[79:20] He then showed him the great miracle.

  
[79:21] But he disbelieved and rebelled.

  
[79:22] Then he turned away in a hurry.

  
[79:23] He summoned and proclaimed.

  
[79:24] He said, "I am your Lord; most high."

  
[79:25] Consequently, GOD committed him to the retribution in the Hereafter, as well as in the first life.

  
[79:26] This is a lesson for the reverent.

  
[79:27] Are you more difficult to create than the heaven? He constructed it.

  
[79:28] He raised its masses, and perfected it.

  
[79:29] He made its night dark, and brightened its morn.

  
[79:30] He made the earth egg-shaped.*

*79:30 The Arabic word "dahhaahaa" is derived from "Dahhyah" which means "egg."

  
[79:31] From it, He produced its own water and pasture.

  
[79:32] He established the mountains.

  
[79:33] All this to provide life support for you and your animals.

  
[79:34] Then, when the great blow comes.

  
[79:35] That is the day when the human will remember everything he did.

  
[79:36] Hell will be brought into existence.
  
[79:37] As for the one who transgressed.

  
[79:38] Who was preoccupied with this life.

  
[79:39] Hell will be the abode.

  
[79:40] As for the one who reverenced the majesty of his Lord, and enjoined the self from sinful lusts.

  
[79:41] Paradise will be the abode.

  
[79:42] They ask you about the Hour, and when it will take place!

  
[79:43] It is not you (Muhammad) who is destined to announce its time.

  
[79:44] Your Lord decides its fate.

  
[79:45] Your mission is to warn those who expect it.

  
[79:46] The day they see it, they will feel as if they lasted one evening or half a day.
