By those (angels) who drag out (the soul of the impious) violently!
By those (angels) who draw out (the soul of the monotheist ) smoothly!
By those (angels) who slide down (as if they were) swimming!
Then by those who race each other (as if they were in) a race.
And then by those (angels) who carry out the Command of Allâh.
On a day when the trembling thing (-the earth-) will quake (when the first blowing of the Trumpet is blown).
Then followed by the second one.
The hearts (of the people), on that day, will palpitate with fear
While their eyes are downcast.
They say: “What! Will we indeed be brought back to our former state
Even if we became decayed bones?’
They say: "It would be, in that case, a losing return!"
Indeed, it is only one whistle.
Then suddenly they are awakened.
Has there come to you the anecdote of ‘Moses’?
When his Lord called upon him in the ‘Scared Valley’, ‘Towa’:
(Saying),"Go to “Pharaoh”. Indeed, he has become tyrant.
Say unto him: “ Would you like to purify yourself,
And that I should guide you to your Lord, so that you may show honor and reverence for (him)?'“
‘Moses’ showed him the greatest sign ( of God’s power & glory).
Thus, he belied and refused to yield to the truth.
Then turned he away in haste,
Then gathered he (the people) and cried aloud,
And he proclaimed: “I am your Lord, the Most High."
So Allâh seized him with the chastisement of the hereafter and the former life.
Indeed in that is a lesson for whoever would show honor and reverence for Allâh.
What! Are you more troublesome to create or the sky (above)? (Allâh) has constructed it.
He raised the height thereof and proportioned it.
He has made its nights dark and extracted its luminosity.
And after that He spread the earth.
He brought forth from it its water and its pasture,
And the mountains He set firm,
As provision for you and your cattle.
Thus, when the Great Catastrophe comes,
Man will remember, on that day, what he used to strive for.
‘Gehenna’ will be made manifest to the one who sees,
So as for the one who transgressed,
And preferred this worldly life,
‘Gehenna’ will definitely be (his) eternal home.
(On the other hand), who shows honor and reverence for the divine glory of his Lord, and guards himself against self-deception-
‘Al-Jannah’ will definitely be (his) eternal home.
They ask you, (O' Muhammad), about the ‘Hour’ ( of Reckoning): “when will it happen?”
How could you know about it?
Unto your Lord belongs the ultimate knowledge of it.
You are not more than a ‘warner’ to the one who would like to avoid its awful consequences.
On the day when it is made manifest to them, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn.
