Quote:
{79:42} They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival?

I suggest,
{79:42} They ask you [, O Muhammad,] about the Hour: how long till its docking?

Quote:
{79:43} In what [position] are you that you should mention it?

I suggest,
{79:43} In what [capacity] are you for telling it?

Quote:
{79:44} To your Lord is its finality.

Excellent translation.

Quote:
{79:45} You are only a warner for those who fear it.

I suggest,
{79:45} Verily, you are only a forewarner to those who fear it.

Quote:
{79:46} It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof.

I suggest,
{79:46} As though, the Day they see it, they had not stayed but an evening or a morning thereof.
