1 . By the angels who drag forth vehemently.
2 . By the angels who release with gentle release.
3 . By the angels who glide swimmingiy,
4 . And then they speed with foremost speed.
5 . And then they manage the affair,
6 . A Day shall come whereon the quaking will quake,
7 . And there will follow it the next blast.
8 . Hearts on that Day will be throbbing;
9 . Their looks will be downcast.
10 . They say: shall we indeed be restored to the first state,
11 . When we have become bones decayed!
12 . They say: that then shall be a losing return.
13 . It will be only one scaring shout,
14 . And lo! they all shall appear on the surface.
15 . Hath there come Unto thee the story of Musa!
16 . Recall what time his Lord called Unto him in the holy vale of Tuwa.
17 . Saying:´go thou Unto Fir´awn; verily he hath waxen exorbitant.
18 . Then say thou: ´wouldst thou to be purified?
19 . Then shall guide thee Unto thy Lord so that thou shalt fear.
20 . Then he shewed him the great sign.
21 . Yet he belied and disobeyed.
22 . Then he turned back striving.
23 . Then he gathered and cried aloud,
24 . And he said: I am Your Lord, most high.
25 . Wherefore Allah laid hold of him with the punishment of the Hereafter and of the present.
26 . Verily herein is lesson for him who feareth.
27 . Are ye harder to create or the heaven which He hath builded?
28 . He hath raised the height thereof and perfected it.
29 . And He made dark its night, and brought forth its sunshine.
30 . And the earth!- thereafter He stretched it out.
31 . And he brought forth therefrom its water, and its pasture.
32 . And the mountains! - He established them firm:
33 . A provision for you and your cattle.
34 . Then when the Grand Calamity shall come
35 . The Day whereon man shall rember whatsoever he had striven for.
36 . And the Scorch will be made apparent to any one who beholdeth.
37 . Then as for him who waxed exorbitant,
38 . And who chose the life of the world,
39 . Verily the Scorch! that shall be his resort.
40 . And as for him who dreaded standing before his Lord, and restrained his soul from lust,
41 . Verily the Garden! -that shall be his resort.
42 . They question thee of the Hour:´when will its arrival be?
43 . Wherein art thou concerred with the declaration thereof!
44 . Unto thy Lord is the Knowledge of the limit fixed therefor.
45 . Thou art but a warner Unto him who feareth.
46 . On the Day whereon they behold it, it will appear to them as though they had not tarried save an evening or the morn thereof.
