But [Fir"aun (Pharaoh)] belied and disobeyed;
Then he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah).
Then he gathered his people and cried aloud,
Saying:"I am your lord, most high",
So Allah, seized him with punishment for his last [i.e. his saying:"I am your lord, most high") (see Verse 79:24)] and first [(i.e. his saying,"O chiefs! I know not that you have a god other than I" (see Verse 28:38)] transgression.
Verily, in this is an instructive admonition for whosoever fears Allah.
Are you more difficult to create, or is the heaven that He constructed?
He raised its height, and He has equally ordered it,
Its night He covers with darkness, and its forenoon He brings out (with light).
And after that He spread the earth;
And brought forth therefrom its water and its pasture;
And the mountains He has fixed firmly;
(To be) a provision and benefit for you and your cattle.
But when there comes the greatest catastrophe (i.e. the Day of Recompense, etc.),
The Day when man shall remember what he strove for,
And Hell-fire shall be made apparent in full view for (every) one who sees,
Then, for him who Tagha (transgressed all bounds, in disbelief, oppression and evil deeds of disobedience to Allah).
And preferred the life of this world (by following his evil desires and lusts),
Verily, his abode will be Hell-fire;
But as for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lusts.
