On the day when the trembling one will tremble. (The disbelievers will certainly taste the punishment.)
7 تَتْبَعُهَا الرَّادِفَةُ
And the following event will come after it.
8 قُلُوبٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَاجِفَةٌ
Many a heart will flutter on that day!
9 أَبْصَارُهَا خَاشِعَةٌ
Unable to lift their gaze.
10 يَقُولُونَ أَإِنَّا لَمَرْدُودُونَ فِي الْحَافِرَةِ
The disbelievers say, “Will we really return to our former state?”
11 أَإِذَا كُنَّا عِظَامًا نَّخِرَةً
“When we have become decayed bones?”
12 قَالُوا تِلْكَ إِذًا كَرَّةٌ خَاسِرَةٌ
They said, “So this return is an obvious loss!”
13 فَإِنَّمَا هِيَ زَجْرَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ
So that is not but a single shout.
14 فَإِذَا هُم بِالسَّاهِرَةِ
So they will immediately be in an open plain.
15 هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ مُوسَىٰ
Did the news of Moosa reach you?
16 إِذْ نَادَاهُ رَبُّهُ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى
When his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa.
17 اذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طَغَىٰ
That “Go to Firaun – he has rebelled.”
18 فَقُلْ هَل لَّكَ إِلَىٰ أَن تَزَكَّىٰ
“Tell him ‘Do you have the inclination to become pure?’
19 وَأَهْدِيَكَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَتَخْشَىٰ
‘And I may guide you to your Lord, so that you may fear.’”
20 فَأَرَاهُ الْآيَةَ الْكُبْرَىٰ
So Moosa showed him a magnificent sign.
21 فَكَذَّبَ وَعَصَىٰ
In response, he denied and disobeyed.
22 ثُمَّ أَدْبَرَ يَسْعَىٰ
He then turned away, striving in his effort.
23 فَحَشَرَ فَنَادَىٰ
So he gathered the people, and proclaimed.
24 فَقَالَ أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَىٰ
And then said, “I am your most supreme lord.”
25 فَأَخَذَهُ اللَّهُ نَكَالَ الْآخِرَةِ وَالْأُولَىٰ
Allah therefore seized him, in the punishment of this world and the Hereafter.
26 إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَعِبْرَةً لِّمَن يَخْشَىٰ
Indeed in this is a lesson for one who fears.
27 أَأَنتُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقًا أَمِ السَّمَاءُ ۚ بَنَاهَا
Do you think that it is harder to create you or the heavens? Allah has created it.
28 رَفَعَ سَمْكَهَا فَسَوَّاهَا
He raised its roof and made it proper.
29 وَأَغْطَشَ لَيْلَهَا وَأَخْرَجَ ضُحَاهَا
And He made its night dark, and started its light.
30 وَالْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ دَحَاهَا
And after it spread out the earth.
31 أَخْرَجَ مِنْهَا مَاءَهَا وَمَرْعَاهَا
And from it produced its water and its pasture.
32 وَالْجِبَالَ أَرْسَاهَا
And solidified the mountains.
33 مَتَاعًا لَّكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَامِكُمْ
In order to benefit you and your cattle.
34 فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الطَّامَّةُ الْكُبْرَىٰ
So when the greatest universal disaster arrives,
35 يَوْمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ الْإِنسَانُ مَا سَعَىٰ
On that day man will recall all what he strove for.
36 وَبُرِّزَتِ الْجَحِيمُ لِمَن يَرَىٰ
And hell will be made visible to all those who can see.
37 فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَىٰ
So for one who rebelled,
38 وَآثَرَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
And preferred the worldly life,
39 فَإِنَّ الْجَحِيمَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ
Then indeed hell only is his destination.
40 وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ
And for one who feared to stand before his Lord and restrained his soul from desire,
41 فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ
Then indeed Paradise only is his destination.
42 يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَاهَا
They (the disbelievers) ask you regarding the Last Day, as to when is its appointed time.
43 فِيمَ أَنتَ مِن ذِكْرَاهَا
What concern do you have regarding its explanation? (You are not bound to tell them)
44 إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ مُنتَهَاهَا
Towards your Lord only is its conclusion.
45 إِنَّمَا أَنتَ مُنذِرُ مَن يَخْشَاهَا
You are but a Herald of Warning, for one who fears it.
46 كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَهَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا إِلَّا عَشِيَّةً أَوْ ضُحَاهَا
The day when they will see it, it will seem as if they had not stayed on earth except for an evening or its morning.
