THE RISING OF THE DEAD, CHAPTER NO. 075
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
075.001 I do call to witness the Resurrection Day;
075.002 And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit: (Eschew Evil).
075.003 Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?
075.004 Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers.
075.005 But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.
075.006 He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
075.007 At length, when the sight is dazed,
075.008 And the moon is buried in darkness.
075.009 And the sun and moon are joined together,-
075.010 That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"
075.011 By no means! No place of safety!
075.012 Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.
075.013 That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.
075.014 Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
075.015 Even though he were to put up his excuses.
075.016 Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur’an) to make haste therewith.
075.017 It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:
075.018 But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated):
075.019 Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear):
075.020 Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
075.021 And leave alone the Hereafter.
075.022 Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);-
075.023 Looking towards their Lord;
075.024 And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
075.025 In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them;
075.026 Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit),
075.027 And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?"
075.028 And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;
075.029 And one leg will be joined with another:
075.030 That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
075.031 So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!-
075.032 But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away!
075.033 Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit!
075.034 Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
075.035 Again, Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
075.036 Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?
075.037 Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
075.038 Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion
(him) in due proportion.
075.039 And of him He made two sexes, male and female.
075.040 Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
