SURA LXXIX (79) - Those Who Drag Forth (Mecca - 46) (XXXV - 48)
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
By those angels who drag forth souls with violence,
And by those who with joyous release release them;By those who swim swimmingly along;
One day, the disturbing trumpet-blast shall disturb it,Which the second blast shall follow:
79:10 The infidels will say, "Shall we indeed be restored as at first?What! when we have become rotten bones?"
"This then," say they, "will be a return to loss."Verily, it will be but a single blast,
Then I will guide thee to thy Lord that thou mayest fear him."79:20 And he showed him a great miracle, -
So God visited on him the punishment of this life and of the other.
Verily, herein is a lesson for him who hath the fear of God.
Are ye the harder to create, or the heaven which he hath built?He reared its height and fashioned it,
And gave darkness to its night, and brought out its light,
79:30 And afterwards stretched forth the earth, -
He brought forth from it its waters and its pastures;And set the mountains firm
The day when a man shall reflect on the pains that he hath taken,
And Hell shall be in full view of all who are looking on;Then, as for him who hath transgressed
79:40 But as to him who shall have feared the majesty of his Lord, andshall have refrained his soul form lust,
Verily, Paradise - that shall be his dwelling-place.
They will ask thee of "the Hour," when will be its fixed time?But what knowledge hast thou of it?
And thou art only charged with the warning of those who fear it.
On the day when they shall see it, it shall seem to them as though they
had not tarried in the tomb, longer than its evening or its morn.
