75

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

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 (God) 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?
