* | quran | * | 79. an-nazi`at. those who pull out      <   > 

1.  *     By those (angels) who pull out (the souls of the disbelievers and the wicked) with great violence;
2.  *     By those (angels) who gently take out (the souls of the believers);
3.  *     And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.).
4.  *     And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.).
5.  *     And by those angels who arrange to do the Commands of their Lord, (so verily, you disbelievers will be called to account).
6.  *     On the Day (when the first blowing of the Trumpet is blown), the earth and the mountains will shake violently (and everybody will die),
7.  *     The second blowing of the Trumpet follows it (and everybody will be raised up),
8.  *     (Some) hearts that Day will shake with fear and anxiety.
9.  *     Their eyes cast down.
10.  *     They say: "Shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state of life?
11.  *     "Even after we are crumbled bones?"
12.  *     They say: "It would in that case, be a return with loss!"
13.  *     But only, it will be a single Zajrah (shout (i.e., the second blowing of the Trumpet)). (See Verse 37:19).
14.  *     When, behold, they find themselves over the earth alive after their death,
15.  *     Has there come to you the story of Moosa (Moses)?
16.  *     When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Toowa,
17.  *     Go to Firaun (Pharaoh), verily, he has transgressed all bounds (in crimes, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.).
18.  *     And say to him: "Would you purify yourself (from the sin of disbelief by becoming a believer)",
19.  *     And that I guide you to your Lord, so you should fear Him?
20.  *     Then (Moosa (Moses)) showed him the great sign (miracles).
21.  *     But (Firaun (Pharaoh)) belied and disobeyed;
22.  *     Then he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah).
23.  *     Then he gathered his people and cried aloud,
24.  *     Saying: "I am your lord, most high",
25.  *     So Allah, seized him with punishment for his last (i.e. his saying: "I am your lord, most high") (see Verse 79:24)) and first ((i.e. his saying, "O chiefs! I know not that you have a god other than I" (see Verse 28:38)) transgression.
26.  *     Verily, in this is an instructive admonition for whosoever fears Allah.
27.  *     Are you more difficult to create, or is the heaven that He constructed?
28.  *     He raised its height, and He has equally ordered it,
29.  *     Its night He covers with darkness, and its forenoon He brings out (with light).
30.  *     And after that He spread the earth;
31.  *     And brought forth therefrom its water and its pasture;
32.  *     And the mountains He has fixed firmly;
33.  *     (To be) a provision and benefit for you and your cattle.
34.  *     But when there comes the greatest catastrophe (i.e. the Day of Recompense, etc.),
35.  *     The Day when man shall remember what he strove for,
36.  *     And Hell-fire shall be made apparent in full view for (every) one who sees,
37.  *     Then, for him who Tagha (transgressed all bounds, in disbelief, oppression and evil deeds of disobedience to Allah).
38.  *     And preferred the life of this world (by following his evil desires and lusts),
39.  *     Verily, his abode will be Hell-fire;
40.  *     But as for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lusts.
41.  *     Verily, Paradise will be his abode.
42.  *     They ask you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) about the Hour, - when will be its appointed time?
43.  *     You have no knowledge to say anything about it,
44.  *     To your Lord belongs (the knowledge of) the term thereof?
45.  *     You (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) are only a warner for those who fear it,
46.  *     The Day they see it, (it will be) as if they had not tarried (in this world) except an afternoon or a morning
