Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 No! I swear by the Day of Resurrection
75:2 No! I swear by the reproachful soul
75:3 What, does man reckon We shall not gather his bones
75:4 Yes indeed; We are able to shape again his fingers
75:5 Nay, but man desires to continue on as a libertine
75:6 asking, 'When shall be the Day of Resurrection?
75:7 But when the sight is daze
75:8 and the moon is eclipsed
75:9 and the sun and moon are brought together
75:10 upon that day man shall say, 'Whither to flee?
75:11 No indeed; not a refuge
75:12 Upon that day the recourse shall be to thy Lord
75:13 Upon that day man shall be told his former deeds and his latter
75:14 nay, man shall be a clear proof against himself
75:15 even though he offer his excuses
75:16 Move not thy tongue with it to hasten it
75:17 Ours it is to gather it, and to recite it
75:18 So, when We recite it, follow thou its recitation
75:19 Then Ours it is to explain it
75:20 No indeed; but you love the hasty world
75:21 and leave be the Hereafter
75:22 Upon that day faces shall be radiant
75:23 gazing upon their Lord
75:24 and upon that day faces shall be scowling
75:25 thou mightest think the Calamity has been wreaked on them
75:26 No indeed; when it reaches the clavicle
75:27 and it is said, 'Who is an enchanter?
75:28 and he thinks that it is the partin
75:29 and leg is intertwined with leg
75:30 upon that day unto thy Lord shall be the driving
75:31 For he confirmed it not, and did not pray
75:32 but he cried it lies, and he turned away
75:33 then he went to his household arrogantly
75:34 Nearer to thee and neare
75:35 then nearer to thee and nearer
75:36 What, does man reckon he shall be left to roam at will
75:37 Was he not a sperm-drop spilled
75:38 Then he was a blood-clot, and He created and formed
75:39 and He made of him two kinds, male and female
75:40 What, is He not able to quicken the dead
