79:5 فَالْمُدَبِّرَاتِ أَمْرًا

And those who arrange [each] matter,

79:6 يَوْمَ تَرْجُفُ الرَّاجِفَةُ

On the Day the blast [of the Horn] will convulse [creation],

79:7 تَتْبَعُهَا الرَّادِفَةُ

79:8 قُلُوبٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَاجِفَةٌ

Hearts, that Day, will tremble,

79:9 أَبْصَارُهَا خَاشِعَةٌ

Their eyes humbled.

79:10 يَقُولُونَ أَإِنَّا لَمَرْدُودُونَ فِي الْحَافِرَةِ

They are [presently] saying, “Will we indeed be returned to [our] former state [of life]?

79:11 أَإِذَا كُنَّا عِظَامًا نَخِرَةً

Even if we should be decayed bones?

79:12 قَالُوا تِلْكَ إِذًا كَرَّةٌ خَاسِرَةٌ

They say, “That, then, would be a losing return.”

79:13 فَإِنَّمَا هِيَ زَجْرَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ

Indeed, it will be but one shout,

79:14 فَإِذَا هُمْ بِالسَّاهِرَةِ

And suddenly they will be [alert] upon the earth’s surface.

79:15 هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ مُوسَىٰ

Has there reached you the story of Moses? –

79:16 إِذْ نَادَاهُ رَبُّهُ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى

When his Lord called to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa,

79:17 اذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طَغَىٰ

“Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.

79:18 فَقُلْ هَلْ لَكَ إِلَىٰ أَنْ تَزَكَّىٰ

And say to him, ‘Would you [be willing to] purify yourself

79:19 وَأَهْدِيَكَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَتَخْشَىٰ

And let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?'”

79:20 فَأَرَاهُ الْآيَةَ الْكُبْرَىٰ

And he showed him the greatest sign,

79:21 فَكَذَّبَ وَعَصَىٰ

But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed.

79:22 ثُمَّ أَدْبَرَ يَسْعَىٰ

Then he turned his back, striving.

79:23 فَحَشَرَ فَنَادَىٰ

And he gathered [his people] and called out

79:24 فَقَالَ أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَىٰ

And said, “I am your most exalted lord.”

79:25 فَأَخَذَهُ اللَّهُ نَكَالَ الْآخِرَةِ وَالْأُولَىٰ

So Allah seized him in exemplary punishment for the last and the first [transgression].

79:26 إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَعِبْرَةً لِمَنْ يَخْشَىٰ

Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [Allah].

79:27 أَأَنْتُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقًا أَمِ السَّمَاءُ ۚ بَنَاهَا

Are you a more difficult creation or is the heaven? Allah constructed it.

79:28 رَفَعَ سَمْكَهَا فَسَوَّاهَا

He raised its ceiling and proportioned it.

79:29 وَأَغْطَشَ لَيْلَهَا وَأَخْرَجَ ضُحَاهَا

And He darkened its night and extracted its brightness.

79:30 وَالْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ دَحَاهَا

And after that He spread the earth.

79:31 أَخْرَجَ مِنْهَا مَاءَهَا وَمَرْعَاهَا

He extracted from it its water and its pasture,

79:32 وَالْجِبَالَ أَرْسَاهَا

And the mountains He set firmly

79:33 مَتَاعًا لَكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَامِكُمْ

As provision for you and your grazing livestock.

79:34 فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الطَّامَّةُ الْكُبْرَىٰ

But when there comes the greatest Overwhelming Calamity –

79:35 يَوْمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ الْإِنْسَانُ مَا سَعَىٰ

The Day when man will remember that for which he strove,

79:36 وَبُرِّزَتِ الْجَحِيمُ لِمَنْ يَرَىٰ

And Hellfire will be exposed for [all] those who see –

79:37 فَأَمَّا مَنْ طَغَىٰ

So as for he who transgressed

79:38 وَآثَرَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا

And preferred the life of the world,

79:39 فَإِنَّ الْجَحِيمَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ

Then indeed, Hellfire will be [his] refuge.

79:40 وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ

But as for he who feared the position of his Lord and prevented the soul from [unlawful] inclination,

79:41 فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ

Then indeed, Paradise will be [his] refuge.

79:42 يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَاهَا

They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival?

79:43 فِيمَ أَنْتَ مِنْ ذِكْرَاهَا

In what [position] are you that you should mention it?

79:44 إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ مُنْتَهَاهَا

To your Lord is its finality.

79:45 إِنَّمَا أَنْتَ مُنْذِرُ مَنْ يَخْشَاهَا

You are only a warner for those who fear it.

79:46 كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَهَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا إِلَّا عَشِيَّةً أَوْ ضُحَاهَا

It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof.
