79: Those Who Drag Forth

79:1 By those who drag forth to destruction,
79:2 By the meteors rushing,
79:3 By the lone stars floating,
79:4 By the angels hastening,
79:5 And those who govern the event,
79:6 On the day when the first trump resoundeth.
79:7 And the second followeth it,
79:8 On that day hearts beat painfully
79:9 While eyes are downcast
79:10 (Now) they are saying: Shall we really be restored to our first state
79:11 Even after we are crumbled bones ?
79:12 They say: Then that would be a vain proceeding.
79:13 Surely it will need but one shout,
79:14 And lo! they will be awakened.
79:15 Hath there come unto thee the history of Moses ?
79:16 How his Lord called him in the holy vale of Tuwa,
79:17 (Saying:) Go thou unto Pharaoh - Lo! he hath rebelled -
79:18 And say (unto him): Hast thou (will) to grow (in grace) ?
79:19 Then I will guide thee to thy Lord and thou shalt fear (Him).
79:20 And he showed him the tremendous token.
79:21 But he denied and disobeyed,
79:22 Then turned he away in haste,
79:23 Then gathered he and summoned
79:24 And proclaimed: "I (Pharaoh) am your Lord the Highest."
79:25 So Allah seized him (and made him) an example for the after (life) and for the former.
79:26 Lo! herein is indeed a lesson for him who feareth.
79:27 Are ye the harder to create, or is the heaven that He built ? Which was created first, heaven or earth?
79:28 He raised the height thereof and ordered it;
79:29 And He made dark the night thereof, and He brought forth the morn thereof.
79:30 And after that He spread the earth, (79:30) "He spread the earth."
The earth is flat according to the Quran.
79:31 And produced therefrom the water thereof and the pasture thereof,
79:32 And He made fast the hills,
79:33 A provision for you and for your cattle.
79:34 But when the great disaster cometh,
79:35 The day when man will call to mind his (whole) endeavour,
79:36 And hell will stand forth visible to him who seeth,
79:37 Then, as for him who rebelled
Those who rebel by choosing this life over the next will go to hell.
Hell in the Quran
79:38 And chose the life of the world,
79:39 Lo! hell will be his home.
79:40 But as for him who feared to stand before his Lord and restrained his soul from lust,
79:41 Lo! the Garden will be his home.
79:42 They ask thee of the Hour: when will it come to port ?
79:43 Why (ask they) ? What hast thou to tell thereof ?
79:44 Unto thy Lord belongeth (knowledge of) the term thereof.
79:45 Thou art but a warner unto him who feareth it.
79:46 On the day when they behold it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn thereof.
