By those (angels) that pluck out the soul from depths
and gently take it away
and by those that speedily glide along (the cosmos)
and vie with the others (in carrying out their Lord´s behests)
and then manage the affairs of the Universe (according to their Lord´s commands)
The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion
and will be followed by another quaking
On that Day some hearts shall tremble (with fright)
and their eyes shall be downcast with dread
They say: "Shall we indeed be restored to life
even after we have been reduced to bones, hollow and rotten?"
They say: "That will then be a return with a great loss!"
Surely they will need no more than a single stern blast
and lo, they will all be in the open plain
Has Moses´ story reached you
When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa
and directed him: "Go to Pharaoh, he has rebelled
and say to him: ´Are you willing to be purified
that I may direct you to your Lord and then you hold Him in awe?´"
Then Moses (went to Pharaoh and) showed him the Great Sign
but he denied it as false and disobeyed
and then he turned back to have recourse to his craftiness
and gathered his people and declared
"I am the supreme lord of you all."
Thereupon Allah seized him for the chastisement of the World to Come as well as of the present
Surely there is a great lesson in it for whoever would fear (Allah)
Is it harder to create you or the heaven? But Allah built it
and raised its vault high and proportioned it
and covered its night with darkness and brought forth from it its day
and thereafter spread out the earth
and brought out of it its water and its pasture
and firmly fixed in it mountains
all this as provision for you and your cattle
But when the great calamity will come abou
on the Day when man will recall all his strivings
and Hell will be brought in sight for anyone to see
then he who transgresse
and preferred the life of this world
most surely his abode shall be Hell
But he who feared to stand before his Lord, and restrained himself from evil desires
most surely his abode shall be Paradise
They ask you about the Hour: "When will it be?"
What concern do you have to speak about that
Its knowledge rests with your Lord
You are only a warner to him who has a fear of it
On the Day they see it, they will feel as though they had stayed (in the grave) no more than one evening or one morning
