Book 79


The Draggers

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[79.1]

I swear by the angels who violently pull out the souls of the wicked,

[79.2]

And by those who gently draw out the souls of the blessed,

[79.3]

And by those who float in space,

[79.4]

Then those who are foremost going ahead,

[79.5]

Then those who regulate the affair.

[79.6]

The day on which the quaking one shall quake,

[79.7]

What must happen afterwards shall follow it.

[79.8]

Hearts on that day shall palpitate,

[79.9]

Their eyes cast down.

[79.10]

They say:
Shall we indeed be restored to (our) first state?

[79.11]

What!
when we are rotten bones?

[79.12]

They said:
That then would be a return occasioning loss.

[79.13]

But it shall be only a single cry,

[79.14]

When lo!
they shall be wakeful.

[79.15]

Has not there come to you the story of Musa?

[79.16]

When his Lord called upon him in the holy valley,
twice,

[79.17]

Go to Firon,
surely he has become inordinate.

[79.18]

Then say:
Have you (a desire) to purify yourself:

[79.19]

And I will guide you to your Lord so that you should fear.

[79.20]

So he showed him the mighty sign.

[79.21]

But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed.

[79.22]

Then he went back hastily.

[79.23]

Then he gathered (men) and called out.

[79.24]

Then he said:
I am your lord,
the most high.

[79.25]

So Allah seized him with the punishment of the hereafter and the former life.

[79.26]

Most surely there is in this a lesson to him who fears.

[79.27]

Are you the harder to create or the heaven?
He made it.

[79.28]

He raised high its height,
then put it into a right good state.

[79.29]

And He made dark its night and brought out its light.

[79.30]

And the earth,
He expanded it after that.

[79.31]

He brought forth from it its water and its pasturage.

[79.32]

And the mountains,
He made them firm,

[79.33]

A provision for you and for your cattle.

[79.34]

But when the great predominating calamity comes;

[79.35]

The day on which man shall recollect what he strove after,

[79.36]
And the hell shall be made manifest to him who sees

[79.37]

Then as for him who is inordinate,

[79.38]

And prefers the life of this world,

[79.39]

Then surely the hell,
that is the abode.

[79.40]

And as for him who fears to stand in the presence of his Lord and forbids the soul from low desires,

[79.41]

Then surely the garden-- that is the abode.

[79.42]

They ask you about the hour,
when it will come.

[79.43]

About what!
You are one to remind of it.

[79.44]

To your Lord is the goal of it.

[79.45]

You are only a warner to him who would fear it.

[79.46]

On the day that they see it,
it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.
