In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
By those (angels) that pluck out the soul from depths, وَٱلنَّٰزِعَٰتِ غَرْقًا۝۱
and gently take it away; وَٱلنَّٰشِطَٰتِ نَشْطًا ۝۲
and by those that speedily glide along (the cosmos), وَٱلسَّٰبِحَٰتِ سَبْحًا ۝۳
and vie with the others (in carrying out their Lord's behests); فَٱلسَّٰبِقَٰتِ سَبْقًا ۝۴
and then manage the affairs of the Universe (according to their Lord's commands). فَٱلْمُدَبِّرَٰتِ أَمْرًا ۝۵
The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, يَوْمَ تَرْجُفُ ٱلرَّاجِفَةُ ۝۶
and will be followed by another quaking. تَتْبَعُهَا ٱلرَّادِفَةُ ۝۷
On that Day some hearts shall tremble (with fright), قُلُوبٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَاجِفَةٌ ۝۸
and their eyes shall be downcast with dread. أَبْصَٰرُهَا خَٰشِعَةٌ ۝۹
They say: “Shall we indeed be restored to life, يَقُولُونَ أَءِنَّا لَمَرْدُودُونَ فِى ٱلْحَافِرَةِ ۝۱۰
even after we have been reduced to bones, hollow and rotten?” أَءِذَا كُنَّا عِظَٰمًا نَّخِرَةً ۝۱۱
They say: “That will then be a return with a great loss!” قَالُوا۟ تِلْكَ إِذًا كَرَّةٌ خَاسِرَةٌ ۝۱۲
Surely they will need no more than a single stern blast, فَإِنَّمَا هِىَ زَجْرَةٌ وَٰحِدَةٌ ۝۱۳
and lo, they will all be in the open plain. فَإِذَا هُم بِٱلسَّاهِرَةِ ۝۱۴
Has Moses' story reached you? هَلْ أَتَىٰكَ حَدِيثُ مُوسَىٰٓ ۝۱۵
When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, إِذْ نَادَىٰهُ رَبُّهُۥ بِٱلْوَادِ ٱلْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى ۝۱۶
and directed him: “Go to Pharaoh, he has rebelled, ٱذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُۥ طَغَىٰ ۝۱۷
and say to him: 'Are you willing to be purified, فَقُلْ هَل لَّكَ إِلَىٰٓ أَن تَزَكَّىٰ ۝۱۸
that I may direct you to your Lord and then you hold Him in awe?'” وَأَهْدِيَكَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَتَخْشَىٰ ۝۱۹
Then Moses (went to Pharaoh and) showed him the Great Sign; فَأَرَىٰهُ ٱلْءَايَةَ ٱلْكُبْرَىٰ ۝۲۰
but he denied it as false and disobeyed, فَكَذَّبَ وَعَصَىٰ ۝۲۱
and then he turned back to have recourse to his craftiness, ثُمَّ أَدْبَرَ يَسْعَىٰ ۝۲۲
and gathered his people and declared: فَحَشَرَ فَنَادَىٰ ۝۲۳
“I am the supreme lord of you all.” فَقَالَ أَنَا۠ رَبُّكُمُ ٱلْأَعْلَىٰ ۝۲۴
Thereupon Allah seized him for the chastisement of the World to Come as well as of the present. فَأَخَذَهُ ٱللَّهُ نَكَالَ ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ وَٱلْأُولَىٰٓ ۝۲۵
Surely there is a great lesson in it for whoever would fear (Allah). إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَعِبْرَةً لِّمَن يَخْشَىٰٓ ۝۲۶
Is it harder to create you or the heaven? But Allah built it, ءَأَنتُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقًا أَمِ ٱلسَّمَآءُ ۚ بَنَىٰهَا ۝۲۷
and raised its vault high and proportioned it; رَفَعَ سَمْكَهَا فَسَوَّىٰهَا ۝۲۸
and covered its night with darkness and brought forth from it its day; وَأَغْطَشَ لَيْلَهَا وَأَخْرَجَ ضُحَىٰهَا ۝۲۹
and thereafter spread out the earth, وَٱلْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ دَحَىٰهَآ ۝۳۰
and brought out of it its water and its pasture, أَخْرَجَ مِنْهَا مَآءَهَا وَمَرْعَىٰهَا ۝۳۱
and firmly fixed in it mountains; وَٱلْجِبَالَ أَرْسَىٰهَا ۝۳۲
all this as provision for you and your cattle. مَتَٰعًا لَّكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَٰمِكُمْ ۝۳۳
But when the great calamity will come about فَإِذَا جَآءَتِ ٱلطَّآمَّةُ ٱلْكُبْرَىٰ ۝۳۴
on the Day when man will recall all his strivings, يَوْمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ مَا سَعَىٰ ۝۳۵
and Hell will be brought in sight for anyone to see: وَبُرِّزَتِ ٱلْجَحِيمُ لِمَن يَرَىٰ ۝۳۶
then he who transgressed فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَىٰ ۝۳۷
and preferred the life of this world, وَءَاثَرَ ٱلْحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا ۝۳۸
most surely his abode shall be Hell. فَإِنَّ ٱلْجَحِيمَ هِىَ ٱلْمَأْوَىٰ ۝۳۹
But he who feared to stand before his Lord, and restrained himself from evil desires, وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِۦ وَنَهَى ٱلنَّفْسَ عَنِ ٱلْهَوَىٰ ۝۴۰
most surely his abode shall be Paradise. فَإِنَّ ٱلْجَنَّةَ هِىَ ٱلْمَأْوَىٰ ۝۴۱
They ask you about the Hour: “When will it be?” يَسْـَٔلُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلسَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَىٰهَا ۝۴۲
What concern do you have to speak about that? فِيمَ أَنتَ مِن ذِكْرَىٰهَآ ۝۴۳
Its knowledge rests with your Lord. إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ مُنتَهَىٰهَآ ۝۴۴
You are only a warner to him who has a fear of it. إِنَّمَآ أَنتَ مُنذِرُ مَن يَخْشَىٰهَا ۝۴۵
On the Day they see it, they will feel as though they had stayed (in the grave) no more than one evening or one morning. كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَهَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوٓا۟ إِلَّا عَشِيَّةً أَوْ ضُحَىٰهَا ۝۴۶
