I swear by (or call to witness) those who tear out to destruction
And by those rushing
And by those who float
Then press forward as in a race
And those who regulate affairs
The day on which the first trump resounds (or that which can quake shall quake)
And others follow it
Hearts on that day shall palpitate
While eyes are cast down
They say, "Shall we indeed be restored to our first state
"What! When we are rotten bones?"
They said, "That then would be a return, causing loss."
But it shall be only a single cry
When lo! They will be fully awake
Has not there come to you the story of Moses
When his Lord called upon him in the holy valley of Tuwa
(Saying,) "Go to Pharaoh, surely he has transgressed beyond bounds."
Then say, "Have you a desire to purify yourself
"And I will guide you to your Lord so that you may fear."
So he showed him the Mighty Sign
But he (Pharaoh) rejected it and disobeyed
Then turned he away (from Allah) in haste
Then he gathered (men) and made a proclamation
Saying, "I am your Lord, the most high."
So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Hereafter and the former life
Most surely there is in this a lesson to him who fears
Are you the harder to create or the heaven? He created it
He raised high its height, and gave it order and perfection
And He made dark its night and its splendour does He bring out with light
And after that He expanded (spread) the earth
He brought forth from it its water and its pasturage
And the mountains, He made them firm
A provision for you and for your cattle
But when the great overwhelming calamity comes
The Day on which man shall recollect all he strove after
And Hell shall be made manifest to him who see
Then for him who has transgressed all bounds
And prefers the life of this world
Surely, Hell will be his abode
And as for him who had feared standing in the presence of his Lord and restrains his soul from lust (or low desires)
Then surely the Garden, that is his abode
They ask you (Muhammad) about the Hour, when it will come
"What," ask they, "have you to say about it?"
To your Lord belongs the knowledge of it
you are only a Warner to him who would fear it
On the day that they behold it, it will be as though they had not tarried but an evening or the morning
