Surah An-Nazi'at: Those Yearning

Revealed at Makkah



With the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Rewarding


79:1
CONSIDER the yearning ones proceeding violently;


79:2
and those going forth in a steady going forth,


79:3
and the swimmers in a swift swimming.


79:4
Then the foremost go foremost!


79:5
And consider those regulating the affair!


79:6
The day the quaking one will quake,


79:7
the consequence will succeed it.


79:8
Hearts on that day will be trembling,


79:9
their looks will be downcast.


79:10
They will say: “Shall we indeed be restored to former state?


79:11
“What! when we shall become rotten bones?”


79:12
They say: “That then indeed would be a loosing return.”


79:13
But it will be a single cry,


79:14
and lo! they will become awakened!


79:15
Has there come to you the story of Musa?


79:16
When his Rabb called out to him in the sacred valley, Tuwa,


79:17
“You go to Fir‘awn,— surely he has transgressed—


79:18
“then say: 'Do you desire that you should purify yourself?


79:19
'I shall then guide you to your Rabb, so that you may fear'.”


79:20
And he showed him the great Sign.
