Surah Info

١

By those ˹angels˺ stripping out ˹evil souls˺ harshly,
٢
and those pulling out ˹good souls˺ gently,
٣
and those gliding ˹through heavens˺ swiftly,
٤
and those taking the lead vigorously,
٥
and those conducting affairs ˹obediently˺!
٦
˹Consider˺ the Day ˹when˺ the quaking Blast will come to pass,1
٧
followed by a second Blast.
٨
˹The deniers’˺ hearts on that Day will be trembling ˹in horror˺,
٩
with their eyes downcast.
١٠
˹But now˺ they ask ˹mockingly˺, “Will we really be restored to our former state,
١١
even after we have been reduced to decayed bones?”
١٢
Adding, “Then such a return would be a ˹total˺ loss ˹for us˺!”
١٣
But indeed, it will take only one ˹mighty˺ Blast,
١٤
and at once they will be above ground.
١٥
Has the story of Moses reached you ˹O Prophet˺?
