46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By those (angels) that pluck out the soul from depths, 1 by the angels who gently release the souls of the believers, 2 By the lone stars floating, 3 And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.). 4 And those who arrange [each] matter, 5 The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, 6 and the second blast follows it, 7 hearts upon that day shall be athrob 8 and eyes will be humbly cast down. 9 They say, "What? shall we be brought back to life, 10 even after we have turned into decayed bones?" 11 [And] they add, "That, then, would be a return with loss!" 12 It will be only one scaring shout, 13 When lo! they shall be wakeful. 14 (Muhammad), have you heard the story of Moses 15 When his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa. 16 "Go to the Pharaoh who has become refractory, 17 And say, "Hast thou the will to purify thyself; 18 And that I guide you to your Lord, so you should fear Him? 19 So he showed him the mighty sign. 20 but he denied it as false and disobeyed, 21 He then turned away, striving in his effort. 22 and gathered his people and declared: 23 And proclaimed: "I (Pharaoh) am your Lord the Highest." 24 but God seized him and meted out to him the chastisement of both the next world and the present: 25 Surely in that is a lesson for him who fears! 26
