79:1  By those who pluck out harshly,
79:2  and those who draw out gently,
79:3  and those who glide serenely,
79:4  and those who outrun easily,
79:5  and those who direct affairs.
79:6  On the Day the first blast shudders,
79:7  and the second blast follows it,
79:8  hearts that Day will be pounding
79:9  and eyes will be cast down.
79:10  They will say, ´Are we to be restored to how we were?
79:11  when we have become perished, worm-eaten bones?´
79:12  They say, ´That will clearly be a losing restoration!´
79:13  There will be but one Great Blast,
79:14  and at once they will be on the surface, wide awake!
79:15  Has the story of Musa reached you:
79:16  when his Lord called out to him in the holy valley of Tuwa?
79:17  ´Go to Pharaoh — he has overstepped the limits —
79:18  and say: "Do you resolve to purify yourself.
79:19  I will guide you to your Lord so that you may fear Him?"´
79:20  Then he showed him the Great Sign.
79:21  But he denied it and disobeyed,
79:22  and then he hastily backed away.
79:23  But then he rallied and called out,
79:24  saying, ´I am your Lord Most High!´
79:25  So Allah made an example of him seizing him with punishment in the next World and this world.
79:26  There is certainly instruction in that for those who fear.
79:27  Are you stronger in structure or is heaven? He built it.
79:28  He raised its vault high and made it level.
79:29  He darkened its night and brought forth its morning light.
79:30  After that He smoothed out the earth
79:31  and brought forth from it its water and its pastureland
79:32  and made the mountains firm,
79:33  for you and for your livestock to enjoy.
79:34  When the Great Calamity comes:
79:35  that Day man will remember what he has striven for
79:36  and the Blazing Fire will be displayed for all who can see.
79:37  As for him who overstepped the bounds
79:38  and preferred the life of this world,
79:39  the Blazing Fire will be his refuge.
79:40  But as for him who feared the Station of his Lord and forbade the lower self its appetites,
79:41  the Garden will be his refuge.
79:42  They ask you about the Hour: ´When will it come?´
79:43  What are you doing mentioning it?
79:44  Its coming is your Lord´s affair.
79:45  You are only the warner of those who fear it.
79:46  On the Day they see it, it will be as if they had only lingered for the evening or the morning of a single day.
