075 : The Rising Of The Dead

75:1
I do call to witness the Resurrection Day;

75:2
And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit: (Eschew Evil).

75:3
Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?

75:4
Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers.

75:5
But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.

75:6
He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"

75:7
At length, when the sight is dazed,

75:8
And the moon is buried in darkness.

75:9
And the sun and moon are joined together,-

75:10
That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"

75:11
By no means! No place of safety!

75:12
Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.

75:13
That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.

75:14
Nay, man will be evidence against himself,

75:15
Even though he were to put up his excuses.

75:16
Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur'an) to make haste therewith.

75:17
It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:

75:18
But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated):

75:19
Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear):

75:20
Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,

75:21
And leave alone the Hereafter.

75:22
Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);-

75:23
Looking towards their Lord;

75:24
And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,

75:25
In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them;

75:26
Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit),

75:27
And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?"

75:28
And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;

75:29
And one leg will be joined with another:

75:30
That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!

75:31
So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!-

75:32
But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away!

75:33
Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit!

75:34
Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!

75:35
Again, Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!

75:36
Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?

75:37
Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?

75:38
Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.

75:39
And of him He made two sexes, male and female.

75:40
Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
