An-Naziate (Those who drag forth)

سورة النازعات

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

1 وَالنَّازِعَاتِ غَرْقًا

By those [angels] who extract with violence

2 وَالنَّاشِطَاتِ نَشْطًا

And [by] those who remove with ease

3 وَالسَّابِحَاتِ سَبْحًا

And [by] those who glide [as if] swimming

4 فَالسَّابِقَاتِ سَبْقًا

And those who race each other in a race

5 فَالْمُدَبِّرَاتِ أَمْرًا

And those who arrange [each] matter,

6 يَوْمَ تَرْجُفُ الرَّاجِفَةُ

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

7 تَتْبَعُهَا الرَّادِفَةُ

There will follow it the subsequent [one].

8 قُلُوبٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَاجِفَةٌ

Hearts, that Day, will tremble,

9 أَبْصَارُهَا خَاشِعَةٌ

Their eyes humbled.

10 يَقُولُونَ أَإِنَّا لَمَرْدُودُونَ فِي الْحَافِرَةِ

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

11 أَإِذَا كُنَّا عِظَامًا نَّخِرَةً

Even if we should be decayed bones?

12 قَالُوا تِلْكَ إِذًا كَرَّةٌ خَاسِرَةٌ

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

13 فَإِنَّمَا هِيَ زَجْرَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ

Indeed, it will be but one shout,

14 فَإِذَا هُم بِالسَّاهِرَةِ

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

15 هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ مُوسَى

Has there reached you the story of Moses? –

16 إِذْ نَادَاهُ رَبُّهُ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى

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

17 اذْهَبْ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طَغَى

“Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.

18 فَقُلْ هَل لَّكَ إِلَى أَن تَزَكَّى

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

19 وَأَهْدِيَكَ إِلَى رَبِّكَ فَتَخْشَى

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

20 فَأَرَاهُ الْآيَةَ الْكُبْرَى

And he showed him the greatest sign,

21 فَكَذَّبَ وَعَصَى

But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed.

22 ثُمَّ أَدْبَرَ يَسْعَى

Then he turned his back, striving.

23 فَحَشَرَ فَنَادَى

And he gathered [his people] and called out

24 فَقَالَ أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَى

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

25 فَأَخَذَهُ اللَّهُ نَكَالَ الْآخِرَةِ وَالْأُولَى

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

26 إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَعِبْرَةً لِّمَن يَخْشَى

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

27 أَأَنتُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقًا أَمِ السَّمَاءُ بَنَاهَا

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

28 رَفَعَ سَمْكَهَا فَسَوَّاهَا

He raised its ceiling and proportioned it.

29 وَأَغْطَشَ لَيْلَهَا وَأَخْرَجَ ضُحَاهَا

And He darkened its night and extracted its brightness.

30 وَالْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ دَحَاهَا

And after that He spread the earth.

31 أَخْرَجَ مِنْهَا مَاءَهَا وَمَرْعَاهَا

He extracted from it its water and its pasture,

32 وَالْجِبَالَ أَرْسَاهَا

And the mountains He set firmly

33 مَتَاعًا لَّكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَامِكُمْ

As provision for you and your grazing livestock.

34 فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الطَّامَّةُ الْكُبْرَى

But when there comes the greatest Overwhelming Calamity –

35 يَوْمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ الْإِنسَانُ مَا سَعَى

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

36 وَبُرِّزَتِ الْجَحِيمُ لِمَن يَرَى

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

37 فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَى

So as for he who transgressed

38 وَآثَرَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا

And preferred the life of the world,

39 فَإِنَّ الْجَحِيمَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَى

Then indeed, Hellfire will be [his] refuge.

40 وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَى

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

41 فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَى

Then indeed, Paradise will be [his] refuge.

42 يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَاهَا

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

43 فِيمَ أَنتَ مِن ذِكْرَاهَا

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

44 إِلَى رَبِّكَ مُنتَهَاهَا

To your Lord is its finality.

45 إِنَّمَا أَنتَ مُنذِرُ مَن يَخْشَاهَا

You are only a warner for those who fear it.

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.
