Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 187th part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read Surah An-Nazi’at. Surah An-Nazi’at is the 79th Surah of the Holy Quran and is comprised of 46 verses. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1- By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence;
2- By those who gently draw out (the souls of the blessed);
3- And by those who glide along (on errands of mercy),
4- Then press foward as in a race,
5- Then arrange to do (the Commands of their Lord),
6- One Day everything that can be in commotion will be in violent commotion,
7- Followed by oft-repeated (commotions):
8- Hearts that Day will be in agitation;
9- Cast down will be (their owners’) eyes.
10- They say (now): “What! shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state?
11- “What! – when we shall have become rotten bones?”
12- They say: “It would, in that case, be a return with loss!”
13- But verily, it will be but a single (Compelling) Cry,
14- When, behold, they will be in the (full) awakening (to Judgment).
15- Has the story of Moses reached thee?
16- Behold, thy Lord did call to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa:-
17- “Go thou to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds:
18- “And say to him, Wouldst thou that thou shouldst be purified (from sin)?-“
19- “And that I guide thee to thy Lord, so thou shouldst fear Him?”
20- Then did (Moses) show him the Great Sign.
21- But (Pharaoh) rejected it and disobeyed (guidance);
22- Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah)..
23- Then he collected (his men) and made a proclamation,
24- Saying, “I am your Lord, Most High.”
25- But Allah did punish him, (and made an) example of him,-in the Hereafter, as in this life.
26- Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever feareth ((Allah)).
27- What! Are ye the more difficult to create or the heaven (above)? ((Allah)) hath constructed it:
28- On high hath he raised its canopy, and He hath given it order and perfection.
29- Its night doth He endow with darkness, and its splendour doth He bring out (with light).
30- And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide expanse);
31- He draweth out therefrom its moisture and its pasture;
32- And the mountains hath He firmly fixed;-
33- For use and convenience to you and your cattle.
34- Therefore, when there comes the great, overwhelming (Event),-
35- The Day when man shall remember (all) that he strove for,
36- And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see,-
37- Then, for such as had transgressed all bounds,
38- And had preffered the life of this world,
39- The Abode will be Hell-Fire;
40- And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord’s (tribunal) and had restrained (their) soul from lower desires,
41- Their abode will be the Garden.
42- They ask thee about the Hour, -When will be its appointed time?
43- Wherein art thou (concerned) with the declaration thereof?
44- With thy Lord in the Limit fixed therefor.
45- Thou art but a Warner for such as fear it.
46- The Day they see it, (It will be) as if they had tarried but a single evening, or (at most till) the following morning!
May Allah Have mercy on us all. (Ameen)
