69- Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[69:1] The incontestable (event).

[69:2] What an incontestable (event)!

[69:3] It is truly incontestable.

[69:4] Thamoud and `Aad disbelieved in the Shocker.

[69:5] As for Thamoud, they were annihilated by the devastating (quake).

[69:6] As for `Aad, they were annihilated by a persistent, violent storm.

[69:7] He unleashed it upon them for seven nights and eight days, violently. You could see the people tossed around like decayed palm trunks.

[69:8] Can you find any trace of them?

[69:9] Pharaoh, others before him, and the sinners (of Sodom) were wicked.

[69:10] They disobeyed the messenger of their Lord. Consequently, He requited them a devastating requital.

[69:11] The flood was devastating, so we carried you on the floating (ark).

[69:12] We rendered it a lesson for you, that any listening ear may understand.

[69:13] When the horn is blown once.

[69:14] The earth and the mountains will be carried off and crushed; utterly crushed.

[69:15] That is the day when the inevitable event will come to pass.

[69:16] The heaven will crack, and fall apart.

[69:17] The angels will be all around, and Your Lord's dominion will then encompass eight (universes).

[69:18] On that day, you will be exposed, nothing of you can be hidden.

[69:19] As for the one who receives his record with his right hand, he will say, "Come read my record.

[69:20] "I did believe that I was going to be held accountable."

[69:21] He has deserved a happy life.

[69:22] In an exalted Paradise.

[69:23] Its fruits are within reach.

[69:24] Eat and drink happily in return for your works in days past.

[69:25] As for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, "Oh, I wish I never received my record.

[69:26] "I wish I never knew my account.

[69:27] "I wish my death was eternal.

[69:28] "My money cannot help me.

[69:29] "All my power is gone."

[69:30] Take him and shackle him.

[69:31] Burn him in Hell.

[69:32] In a chain that is seventy arms long, tie him up.

[69:33] For he did not believe in GOD, Most Great.

[69:34] Nor did he advocate the feeding of the poor.

[69:35] Consequently, he has no friend here.

[69:36] Nor any food, except the bitter variety.

[69:37] Food for the sinners.

[69:38] I swear by what you see.

[69:39] And what you do not see.

[69:40] This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.

[69:41] Not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe.

[69:42] Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed.

[69:43] A revelation from the Lord of the universe.

[69:44] Had he uttered any other teachings.

[69:45] We would have punished him.

[69:46] We would have stopped the revelations to him.

[69:47] None of you could have helped him.

[69:48] This is a reminder for the righteous.

[69:49] We know; some of you are rejectors.

[69:50] It is but sorrow for the disbelievers.

[69:51] It is the absolute truth.

[69:52] Therefore, you shall glorify the name of your Lord, Most Great.


70- The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[70:1] A questioner may question the inevitable retribution.

[70:2] For the disbelievers, none can stop it.

[70:3] From GOD; Possessor of the highest Height.

[70:4] The angels, with their reports, climb to Him in a day that equals fifty thousand years.

[70:5] Therefore, you shall resort to a gracious patience.

[70:6] For they see it far away.

[70:7] While we see it very close.

[70:8] The day will come when the sky will be like molten rocks.

[70:9] The mountains will be like fluffy wool.

[70:10] No friend will care about his close friend.

[70:11] When they see them, the guilty will wish he could give his own children as ransom, to spare him the retribution of that day.

[70:12] Also his spouse, and his brother.

[70:13] Even his whole tribe that raised him.

[70:14] Even all the people on earth, if it would save him.

[70:15] No; it is aflame.

[70:16] Eager to burn.

[70:17] It calls on those who turned away.

[70:18] Those who hoarded and counted.

[70:19] Indeed, the human being is anxious.

[70:20] If touched by adversity, despondent.

[70:21] If blessed by wealth, stingy.

[70:22] Except for the worshipers.

[70:23] Who always observe their contact prayers (Salat).

[70:24] Part of their money is set aside.

[70:25] For the poor and the needy.

[70:26] They believe in the Day of Judgment.

[70:27] They reverence their Lord's requital.

[70:28] Their Lord's requital is not taken for granted.

[70:29] They keep their chastity.

[70:30] (They have relations) only with their spouses, or what is legally theirs -

[70:31] anyone who transgresses these limits is a sinner.

[70:32] And the believers keep their word; they are trustworthy.

[70:33] Their testimony is truthful.

[70:34] They consistently observe their contact prayers (Salat) on time.

[70:35] They have deserved a position of honor in Paradise.

[70:36] What is keeping those who disbelieved from joining you?

[70:37] To the right, and to the left, they flee.

[70:38] How can any of them expect to enter the blissful Paradise?

[70:39] Never; we created them, and they know from what.

[70:40] I solemnly swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests; we are able -

[70:41] to substitute better people in your place; we can never be defeated.

[70:42] Therefore, let them blunder and play, until they meet the day that is awaiting them.

[70:43] That is the day they come out of the graves in a hurry, as if herded to the (sacrificial) altars.

[70:44] With their eyes subdued, shame will cover them. That is the day that is awaiting them.


71- Noah (Noah)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[71:1] We sent Noah to his people: "You shall warn your people before a painful retribution afflicts them."

[71:2] He said, "O my people, I am a manifest warner to you.

[71:3] "To alert you that you shall worship GOD, reverence Him, and obey me.

[71:4] "He will then forgive you your sins and respite you for a predetermined period. Most assuredly, GOD's appointment can never be delayed, once it is due, if you only knew."

[71:5] He said, "My Lord, I have invited my people night and day.

[71:6] "But my invitation only increased their aversion.

[71:7] "Whenever I invited them to be forgiven by You, they placed their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their clothes, insisted, and turned arrogant.

[71:8] "Then I invited them publicly.

[71:9] "Then I proclaimed to them loudly, and I spoke to them privately.

[71:10] "I said, `Implore your Lord for forgiveness; He is Forgiving.

[71:11] " `He will then shower you generously with rain.

[71:12] " `And provide you with money and children, and orchards, and streams.' "

[71:13] Why should you not strive to reverence GOD?

[71:14] He is the One who created you in stages.

[71:15] Do you not realize that GOD created seven universes in layers?

[71:16] He designed the moon therein to be a light, and placed the sun to be a lamp.

[71:17] And GOD germinated you from the earth like plants.

[71:18] Then He returns you into it, and He will surely bring you out.

[71:19] GOD made the earth habitable for you.

[71:20] That you may build roads therein.

[71:21] Noah said, "My Lord, they disobeyed me, and followed those who were even more corrupted when blessed with money and children.

[71:22] "They schemed terrible schemes.

[71:23] "They said, `Do not abandon your gods. Do not abandon Wadd, Suwaa`, Yaghouth, Ya`ooq, and Nasr.'

[71:24] "They misled many. Therefore, let the wicked plunge deeper into loss."

[71:25] Because of their sins they were drowned and assigned to the hellfire. They found no helpers to protect them from GOD.

[71:26] Noah also said, "My Lord, do not leave a single disbeliever on earth.

[71:27] "For if you let them, they will only mislead your servants and give birth to nothing but wicked disbelievers.

[71:28] "My Lord, forgive me and my parents, and anyone who enters my home as a believer, and all the believing men and women. But do not give the disbelievers anything but annihilation."


72- Jinns (Al-Jinn)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[72:1] Say, "I was inspired that a group of jinns listened, then said, `We have heard a wonderful Quran.

[72:2] " `It guides to righteousness, and we have believed in it; we will never set up any idols beside our Lord.

[72:3] " `The Most High is our only Lord. He never had a mate, nor a son.

[72:4] " `It is the foolish among us who used to utter such nonsense about GOD.

[72:5] " `We thought that neither the humans, nor the jinns, could possibly utter lies about GOD.

[72:6] " `Human beings used to seek power through jinn beings, but they only afflicted them with a lot of adversity.

[72:7] " `They thought, just like you thought, that GOD would not send another (messenger).

[72:8] " `We touched the heaven and found it filled with formidable guards and projectiles.

[72:9] " `We used to sit there in order to spy. Anyone who listens is pursued by a powerful projectile.

[72:10] " `We have no idea if something bad is intended for the inhabitants of Earth, or if their Lord wills to redeem them.

[72:11] " `Some of us are righteous, and some are less than righteous; we follow various paths.

[72:12] " `We knew full well that we can never run away from GOD on Earth; we can never run away and escape.

[72:13] " `When we heard the guidance, we believed therein. Anyone who believes in his Lord will never fear any injustice, nor any affliction.

[72:14] " `Among us are the submitters, and among us are the compromisers.' " As for those who submitted, they are on the right path.

[72:15] As for the compromisers, they will be fuel for Gehenna.

[72:16] If they remain on the right path, we will bless them with abundant water.

[72:17] We will surely test them all. As for him who disregards the message of his Lord, He will direct him to ever increasing retribution.

[72:18] The places of worship belong to GOD; do not call on anyone else beside GOD.

[72:19] When GOD's servant advocated Him alone, almost all of them banded together to oppose him.

[72:20] Say, "I worship only my Lord; I never set up any idols beside Him."

[72:21] Say, "I possess no power to harm you, nor to guide you."

[72:22] Say, "No one can protect me from GOD, nor can I find any other refuge beside Him.

[72:23] "I deliver GOD's proclamations and messages." Those who disobey GOD and His messenger incur the fire of Hell, wherein they abide forever.

[72:24] Once they see what is awaiting them, they will find out who is really weaker in power, and fewer in number.

[72:25] Say, "I do not know if what is promised to you will happen soon, or if my Lord will delay it for awhile."

[72:26] He is the Knower of the future; He does not reveal the future to anyone.

[72:27] Only to a messenger that He chooses, does He reveal from the past and the future, specific news.

[72:28] This is to ascertain that they have delivered their Lord's messages. He is fully aware of what they have. He has counted the numbers of all things.


73- Cloaked (Al-Muzzammil)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[73:1] O you cloaked one.

[73:2] Meditate during the night, except rarely.

[73:3] Half of it, or a little less.

[73:4] Or a little more. And read the Quran from cover to cover.

[73:5] We will give you a heavy message.

[73:6] The meditation at night is more effective, and more righteous.

[73:7] You have a lot of time during the day for other matters.

[73:8] You shall commemorate the name of your Lord, to come ever closer and closer to Him.

[73:9] Lord of the east and the west; there is no other god beside Him. You should choose Him as your advocate.

[73:10] And remain steadfast in the face of their utterances, and disregard them in a nice manner.

[73:11] And let Me deal with the rejectors, who have been generously blessed; just give them a little time.

[73:12] We have severe punishments, and Hell.

[73:13] Food that can hardly be swallowed, and painful retribution.

[73:14] The day will come when the earth and the mountains will quake, and the mountains will turn into a weightless pile.

[73:15] We have sent to you a messenger, just as we sent to Pharaoh a messenger.

[73:16] Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger and, consequently, we punished him severely.

[73:17] If you disbelieve, how can you evade a day so terrible that it makes the infants gray-haired?

[73:18] The heaven will shatter therefrom. His promise is true.

[73:19] This is a reminder; whoever wills, let him choose the path to his Lord.

[73:20] Your Lord knows that you meditate during two-thirds of the night, or half of it, or one-third of it, and so do some of those who believed with you. GOD has designed the night and the day, and He knows that you cannot always do this. He has pardoned you. Instead, you shall read what you can of the Quran. He knows that some of you may be ill, others may be traveling in pursuit of GOD's provisions, and others may be striving in the cause of GOD. You shall read what you can of it, and observe the contact prayers (Salat), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and lend GOD a loan of righteousness. Whatever good you send ahead on behalf of your souls, you will find it at GOD far better and generously rewarded. And implore GOD for forgiveness. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.


74- The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[74:1] O you hidden secret.

[74:2] Come out and warn.

[74:3] Extol your Lord.

[74:4] Purify your garment.

[74:5] Forsake what is wrong.

[74:6] Be content with your lot.

[74:7] Steadfastly commemorate your Lord.

[74:8] Then, when the horn is blown.

[74:9] That will be a difficult day.

[74:10] For the disbelievers, not easy.

[74:11] Let Me deal with one I created as an individual.

[74:12] I provided him with lots of money.

[74:13] And children to behold.

[74:14] I made everything easy for him.

[74:15] Yet, he is greedy for more.

[74:16] He stubbornly refused to accept these proofs.

[74:17] I will increasingly punish him.

[74:18] For he reflected, then decided.

[74:19] Miserable is what he decided.

[74:20] Miserable indeed is what he decided.

[74:21] He looked.

[74:22] He frowned and whined.

[74:23] Then he turned away arrogantly.

[74:24] He said, "This is but clever magic!

[74:25] "This is human made."

[74:26] I will commit him to retribution.

[74:27] What retribution!

[74:28] Thorough and comprehensive.

[74:29] Obvious to all the people.

[74:30] Over it is nineteen.

[74:31] We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, "What did GOD mean by this allegory?" GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.

[74:32] Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon.

[74:33] And the night as it passes.

[74:34] And the morning as it shines.

[74:35] This is one of the great miracles.

[74:36] A warning to the human race.

[74:37] For those among you who wish to advance, or regress.

[74:38] Every soul is trapped by its sins.

[74:39] Except for those on the right.

[74:40] While in Paradise, they will ask.

[74:41] About the guilty.

[74:42] "What brought you to this retribution?"

[74:43] They will say, "We did not observe the contact prayers (Salat).

[74:44] "We did not feed the poor.

[74:45] "We blundered with the blunderers.

[74:46] "We disbelieved in the Day of Judgment.

[74:47] "Until certainty came to us now."

[74:48] The intercession of the intercessors will never help them.

[74:49] Why are they so averse to this reminder?

[74:50] Running like zebras.

[74:51] Who are fleeing from the lion!

[74:52] Does each one of them want to receive the scripture personally?

[74:53] Indeed, they do not fear the Hereafter.

[74:54] Indeed, this is a reminder.

[74:55] For those who wish to take heed.

[74:56] They cannot take heed against GOD's will. He is the source of righteousness; He is the source of forgiveness.


75- Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[75:1] I swear by the Day of Resurrection.

[75:2] And I swear by the blaming soul.

[75:3] Does the human being think that we will not reconstruct his bones?

[75:4] Yes indeed; we are able to reconstruct his finger tip.

[75:5] But the human being tends to believe only what he sees in front of him.

[75:6] He doubts the Day of Resurrection!

[75:7] Once the vision is sharpened.

[75:8] And the moon is eclipsed.

[75:9] And the sun and the moon crash into one another.

[75:10] The human being will say on that day, "Where is the escape?"

[75:11] Absolutely, there is no escape.

[75:12] To your Lord, on that day, is the final destiny.

[75:13] The human being will be informed, on that day, of everything he did to advance himself, and everything he did to regress himself.

[75:14] The human being will be his own judge.

[75:15] No excuses will be accepted.

[75:16] Do not move your tongue to hasten it.

[75:17] It is we who will collect it into Quran.

[75:18] Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran.

[75:19] Then it is we who will explain it.

[75:20] Indeed, you love this fleeting life.

[75:21] While disregarding the Hereafter.

[75:22] Some faces, on that day, will be happy.

[75:23] Looking at their Lord.

[75:24] Other faces will be, on that day, miserable.

[75:25] Expecting the worst.

[75:26] Indeed, when (the soul) reaches the throat.

[75:27] And it is ordered: "Let go!"

[75:28] He knows it is the end.

[75:29] Each leg will lay motionless next to the other leg.

[75:30] To your Lord, on that day, is the summoning.

[75:31] For he observed neither the charity, nor the contact prayers (Salat).

[75:32] But he disbelieved and turned away.

[75:33] With his family, he acted arrogantly.

[75:34] You have deserved this.

[75:35] Indeed, you have deserved this.

[75:36] Does the human being think that he will go to nothing?

[75:37] Was he not a drop of ejected semen?

[75:38] Then He created an embryo out of it!

[75:39] He made it into male or female!

[75:40] Is He then unable to revive the dead?


76- The Human (Al-Insaan)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[76:1] Is it not a fact that there was a time when the human being was nothing to be mentioned?

[76:2] We created the human from a liquid mixture, from two parents, in order to test him. Thus, we made him a hearer and a seer.

[76:3] We showed him the two paths, then he is either appreciative, or unappreciative.

[76:4] We prepared for the disbelievers chains, shackles, and a blazing Hell.

[76:5] As for the virtuous, they will drink from cups spiced with nectar.

[76:6] A spring that is reserved for GOD's servants; it will gush out as they will.

[76:7] They fulfill their pledges, and reverence a day that is extremely difficult.

[76:8] They donate their favorite food to the poor, the orphan, and the captive.

[76:9] "We feed you for the sake of GOD; we expect no reward from you, nor thanks.

[76:10] "We fear from our Lord a day that is full of misery and trouble."

[76:11] Consequently, GOD protects them from the evils of that day, and rewards them with joy and contentment.

[76:12] He rewards them for their steadfastness with Paradise, and silk.

[76:13] They relax therein on luxurious furnishings. They suffer neither the heat of the sun, nor any cold.

[76:14] The shade covers them therein, and the fruits are brought within reach.

[76:15] They are served drinks in silver containers and cups that are translucent.

[76:16] Translucent cups, though made of silver; they rightly deserved all this.

[76:17] They enjoy drinks of delicious flavors.

[76:18] From a spring therein known as "Salsabeel."

[76:19] Serving them will be immortal servants. When you see them, they will look like scattered pearls.

[76:20] Wherever you look, you will see bliss, and a wonderful dominion.

[76:21] On them will be clothes of green velvet, satin, and silver ornaments. Their Lord will provide them with pure drinks.

[76:22] This is the reward that awaits you, for your efforts have been appreciated.

[76:23] We have revealed to you this Quran; a special revelation from us.

[76:24] You shall steadfastly carry out your Lord's commandments, and do not obey any sinful disbeliever among them.

[76:25] And commemorate the name of your Lord day and night.

[76:26] During the night, fall prostrate before Him, and glorify Him many a long night.

[76:27] These people are preoccupied with this fleeting life, while disregarding - just ahead of them - a heavy day.

[76:28] We created them, and established them, and, whenever we will, we can substitute others in their place.

[76:29] This is a reminder: whoever wills shall choose the path to his Lord.

[76:30] Whatever you will is in accordance with GOD's will. GOD is Omniscient, Wise.

[76:31] He admits whomever He wills into His mercy. As for the transgressors, He has prepared for them a painful retribution.


77- Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[77:1] (Angels) dispatched in succession.

[77:2] To drive the wind.

[77:3] Stir up clouds.

[77:4] Distribute the provisions.

[77:5] Deliver messages.

[77:6] Good news, as well as warnings.

[77:7] What is promised will come to pass.

[77:8] Thus, when the stars are put out.

[77:9] The sky is opened up.

[77:10] The mountains are blown up.

[77:11] The messengers are summoned.

[77:12] That is the appointed day.

[77:13] The Day of Decision.

[77:14] What a Day of Decision!

[77:15] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:16] Did we not annihilate the earlier generations?

[77:17] Then we made others follow them?

[77:18] This is what we do to the criminals.

[77:19] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:20] Did we not create you from a lowly liquid?

[77:21] Then we placed it in a well-protected repository.

[77:22] For a specific period.

[77:23] We measured it precisely. We are the best designers.

[77:24] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:25] Did we not make the earth an abode?

[77:26] For the living and the dead?

[77:27] We placed on it high mountains, and provided you with fresh water to drink.

[77:28] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:29] Go to what you used to disbelieve in.

[77:30] Go to a shade of three different densities.

[77:31] Yet, it provides neither coolness, nor protection from the heat.

[77:32] It throws sparks as big as mansions.

[77:33] As yellow as the color of camels.

[77:34] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:35] That is the day they do not speak.

[77:36] Nor are they given permission to apologize.

[77:37] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:38] This is the Day of Decision. We have summoned you and the previous generations.

[77:39] If you have any schemes, go ahead and scheme.

[77:40] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:41] The righteous will enjoy shade and springs.

[77:42] And fruits that they desire.

[77:43] Eat and drink happily in return for your works.

[77:44] We thus reward the virtuous.

[77:45] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:46] Eat and enjoy temporarily; you are guilty.

[77:47] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:48] When they are told, "Bow down," they do not bow down.

[77:49] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:50] Which Hadith, other than this, do they uphold?


78- The Event (Al-Naba)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[78:1] What are they questioning?

[78:2] The great event.

[78:3] That is disputed by them.

[78:4] Indeed, they will find out.

[78:5] Most assuredly, they will find out.

[78:6] Did we not make the earth habitable?

[78:7] And the mountains stabilizers?

[78:8] We created you as mates (for one another).

[78:9] We created sleeping so you can rest.

[78:10] We made the night a cover.

[78:11] And the day to seek provisions.

[78:12] We built above you seven universes.

[78:13] We created a bright lamp.

[78:14] We send down from the clouds pouring water.

[78:15] To produce with it grains and plants.

[78:16] And various orchards.

[78:17] The Day of Decision is appointed.

[78:18] The day the horn is blown, and you come in throngs.

[78:19] The heaven will be opened like gates.

[78:20] The mountains will be removed, as if they were a mirage.

[78:21] Gehenna is inevitable.

[78:22] For the transgressors; it will be their abode.

[78:23] They stay in it for ages.

[78:24] They never taste in it coolness, nor a drink.

[78:25] Only an inferno, and bitter food.

[78:26] A just requital.

[78:27] They never expected to be held accountable.

[78:28] And utterly rejected our signs.

[78:29] We counted everything in a record.

[78:30] Suffer the consequences; we will only increase your retribution.

[78:31] The righteous have deserved a reward.

[78:32] Orchards and grapes.

[78:33] Magnificent spouses.

[78:34] Delicious drinks.

[78:35] They will never hear in it any nonsense or lies.

[78:36] A reward from your Lord; a generous recompense.

[78:37] Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them. The Most Gracious. No one can abrogate His decisions.

[78:38] The day will come when the Spirit and the angels will stand in a row. None will speak except those permitted by the Most Gracious, and they will utter only what is right.

[78:39] Such is the inevitable day. Whoever wills let him take refuge in his Lord.

[78:40] We have sufficiently warned you about an imminent retribution. That is the day when everyone will examine what his hands have sent forth, and the disbeliever will say, "Oh, I wish I were dust."


79- The Snatchers (Al-Naaza'aat)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[79:1] The (angels who) snatch (the souls of the disbelievers) forcibly.

[79:2] And those who gently take (the souls of the believers) joyfully.

[79:3] And those floating everywhere.

[79:4] Eagerly racing with one another -

[79:5] to carry out various commands.

[79:6] The day the quake quakes.

[79:7] Followed by the second blow.

[79:8] Certain minds will be terrified.

[79:9] Their eyes will be subdued.

[79:10] They will say, "We have been recreated from the grave!

[79:11] "How did this happen after we had turned into rotten bones?"

[79:12] They had said, "This is an impossible recurrence."

[79:13] All it takes is one nudge.

[79:14] Whereupon they get up.

[79:15] Have you known about the history of Moses?

[79:16] His Lord called him at the holy valley of Tuwaa.

[79:17] "Go to Pharaoh; he has transgressed."

[79:18] Tell him, "Would you not reform?

[79:19] "Let me guide you to your Lord, that you may turn reverent."

[79:20] He then showed him the great miracle.

[79:21] But he disbelieved and rebelled.

[79:22] Then he turned away in a hurry.

[79:23] He summoned and proclaimed.

[79:24] He said, "I am your Lord; most high."

[79:25] Consequently, GOD committed him to the retribution in the Hereafter, as well as in the first life.

[79:26] This is a lesson for the reverent.

[79:27] Are you more difficult to create than the heaven? He constructed it.

[79:28] He raised its masses, and perfected it.

[79:29] He made its night dark, and brightened its morn.

[79:30] He made the earth egg-shaped.

[79:31] From it, He produced its own water and pasture.

[79:32] He established the mountains.

[79:33] All this to provide life support for you and your animals.

[79:34] Then, when the great blow comes.

[79:35] That is the day when the human will remember everything he did.

[79:36] Hell will be brought into existence.

[79:37] As for the one who transgressed.

[79:38] Who was preoccupied with this life.

[79:39] Hell will be the abode.

[79:40] As for the one who reverenced the majesty of his Lord, and enjoined the self from sinful lusts.

[79:41] Paradise will be the abode.

[79:42] They ask you about the Hour, and when it will take place!

[79:43] It is not you (Muhammad) who is destined to announce its time.

[79:44] Your Lord decides its fate.

[79:45] Your mission is to warn those who expect it.

[79:46] The day they see it, they will feel as if they lasted one evening or half a day.


80- He Frowned (Abasa)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[80:1] He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away.

[80:2] When the blind man came to him.

[80:3] How do you know? He may purify himself.

[80:4] Or he may take heed, and benefit from the message.

[80:5] As for the rich man.

[80:6] You gave him your attention.

[80:7] Even though you could not guarantee his salvation.

[80:8] The one who came to you eagerly.

[80:9] And is really reverent.

[80:10] You ignored him.

[80:11] Indeed, this is a reminder.

[80:12] Whoever wills shall take heed.

[80:13] In honorable scriptures.

[80:14] Exalted and pure.

[80:15] (Written) by the hands of messengers.

[80:16] Who are honorable and righteous.

[80:17] Woe to the human being; he is so unappreciative!

[80:18] What did He create him from?

[80:19] From a tiny drop, He creates him and designs him.

[80:20] Then He points out the path for him.

[80:21] Then He puts him to death, and into the grave.

[80:22] When He wills, He resurrects him.

[80:23] He shall uphold His commandments.

[80:24] Let the human consider his food!

[80:25] We pour the water generously.

[80:26] Then we split the soil open.

[80:27] We grow in it grains.

[80:28] Grapes and pasture.

[80:29] Olives and palms.

[80:30] A variety of orchards.

[80:31] Fruits and vegetables.

[80:32] To provide life support for you and your animals.

[80:33] Then, when the blow comes to pass.

[80:34] That is the day when one flees from his brother.

[80:35] From his mother and father.

[80:36] From his spouse and children.

[80:37] Each one of them, on that day, worries about his own destiny.

[80:38] Some faces on that day will be happy.

[80:39] Laughing and joyful.

[80:40] Other faces, on that day, will be covered with misery.

[80:41] Overwhelmed by remorse.

[80:42] These are the wicked disbelievers.
