Shabbir Ahmed rendition of Surah Those Who Drag Forth, Soul-snatchers, Those Who Pulled Out(an-Nazi`at)
79:1 Consider those who dive to bring up. (Pearls from the ocean. People from repression).
79:2 And move steadily in jubilation, releasing (the oppressed from bondage).
79:3 And working hard, swimming in strides.
79:4 And then together racing to progress.
79:5 And thus taking charge of their matters.
79:6 The Day when the tremulous trembles.
79:7 To be followed by the jolter. (The oppressors are shaken up again and again).
79:8 Some hearts throb on that Day.
79:9 Their eyes subdued.
79:10 They say, "What! Shall we ever be returned to the ditch of anonymity?" ('Hufrah' = Ditch = Not noteworthy = Lowly = Unremarkable = Insignificant).
79:11 "Shall we ever weaken to skeletal strength?"
79:12 And they say, "In that case, then, it would be an investment of loss!"
79:13 But finally, it is a single swift call.
79:14 And, behold, they will be awakened!
79:15 Has the story of Moses reached you? (Such a Revolution occurred in his times (20:9-98)).
79:16 When his Lord called him in the Sacred Valley of Revelation (18:60-64), (20:12).
79:17 "Go to Pharaoh. Behold, he has crossed all bounds of decency."
79:18 And ask him, "Are you willing to be a better person?" ('Zaku' = Grow in goodness = Develop the 'Self' = Get rid of evil behavior = Attain purity = Improve in conduct = Prime the 'Self' for actualization).
79:19 Then I will guide you to your Lord so that you will have some idea of His awesome Glory."
79:20 And then he presented to him the tremendous evidence of the Truth. (20:23).
79:21 But he denied and haughtily rejected.
79:22 Then turned he away briskly.
79:23 Then gathered (his chiefs) and called (his people).
79:24 And proclaimed, "I am your Lord, the Highest!"
79:25 So Allah took him to task, and made him an example for the later generations and the ones who soon followed.
79:26 Behold, herein is indeed a lesson for him who fears (violating the Divine Law).
79:27 What! Are you the more difficult to create or is the heaven that He built?
79:28 He raised high its canopy, and shaped it perfect.
79:29 And He made dark its night and its splendor He brings out.
79:30 And after that He made the earth shoot out from the Cosmic Nebula and made it spread out egg-shaped. ('Dahaha' entails all the meanings rendered (21:30), (41:11)).
79:31 And produced from it its own water and pasture.
79:32 And the mountains He firmly fixed.
79:33 A means of livelihood for you and your cattle.
79:34 And so, when there comes the Great Event,
79:35 On that Day man will remember all that he has ever done. (53:39), (56:63-73).
79:36 And the Insurmountable Barrier will stand before him who finds it before him (he failed to prime his 'Self' for the felicitous development in the Hereafter (29:54), (39:48), (82:16)).
79:37 Then, the one who rebelled against the Divine Laws,
79:38 And fell for instant gratifications, ('Hayat-id-duniya' = Life of this world = Short term = Instant gains = Disregard of the life to come).
79:39 Behold, the (foot of) the Insurmountable Barrier will be his home.
79:40 But the one who feared standing before his Sustainer and restrained his selfish desire,
79:41 Behold, the Paradise will be his home.
79:42 They ask you of the Hour, "When will it come to pass?"
79:43 Why? What do you have to tell them about it? (7:187), (33:63), (42:17).
79:44 Unto your Lord is the culmination of it. (53:42).
79:45 You are but a Warner unto him who stands in awe of it.
79:46 On the Day when they see it, it will be as if they had lived no longer than an evening or its morning.
