79:1  By those that pluck out vehemently,
79:2  and those that move forward rapidly;
79:3  by those that float along at ease,
79:4  and those that outstrip swiftly,
79:5  and those that conduct matters.
79:6  On the day when a violent convulsion will [be overwhelming],
79:7  to be soon followed by a further [convulsion],
79:8  all hearts shall be filled with terror,
79:9  and all eyes shall be downcast.
79:10  They say, 'What! Are we being restored to our former state,
79:11  even though we have become [no more than] hollow bones?'
79:12  They say, 'That will be a return with loss.'
79:13  But with just one blast
79:14  they shall be alive on earth.
79:15  Have you heard the story of Moses?
79:16  His Lord called out to him in the sacred valley of Å¢uwā,
79:17  saying: 'Go to Pharaoh: he has transgressed all bounds,
79:18  and say to him. “Would you like to reform yourself?
79:19  I will guide you to your Lord, so that you may be in awe of Him.'”
79:20  He showed Pharaoh the mightiest miracle,
79:21  but Pharaoh cried lies and rebelled.
79:22  He then turned away hastily.
79:23  He summoned all his men and made a proclamation to them:
79:24  'I am your supreme Lord', he said.
79:25  God smote him with the scourge of both the life to come and this life.
79:26  Surely in this there is a lesson for the God-fearing.
79:27  Which is stronger in constitution: you or the heaven He has built?
79:28  He raised it high and gave it its perfect shape,
79:29  and gave darkness to its night, and brought out its daylight.
79:30  After that He spread out the earth.
79:31  He brought out water from it, and brought forth its pastures;
79:32  and the mountains He set firm,
79:33  for you and your cattle to delight in.
79:34  Then, when the great, overwhelming event comes to pass —
79:35  on that day man will clearly remember what he has done,
79:36  when hell is brought in sight of all who are looking on;
79:37  then, he who transgressed the bounds of what is right,
79:38  and chose this present life
79:39  will have hell for his dwelling place.
79:40  But he who feared that he will stand before his Lord and forbade his soul its base desire
79:41  will dwell in paradise.
79:42  They question you about the Last Hour, when will it come to pass?
79:43  But why should you be concerned with its exact timing?
79:44  The final word concerning it belongs to your Lord.
79:45  Your mission is merely to warn those who fear it.
79:46  On the day when they see that hour, it will seem to them that their life on earth had spanned only one evening, or one morning.
