Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 I need not swear by the resurrection day
75:2 Nor need I swear by the self-accusing soul
75:3 Does man think that we shall not collect his bones
75:4 Able are we to arrange his finger tips
75:5 Nay, but man wishes to be wicked henceforward
75:6 he asks, When is the resurrection day
75:7 But when the sight shall be dazed
75:8 and the moon be eclipsed
75:9 and the sun and the moon be together
75:10 and man shall say upon that day, 'Where is a place to flee to?'
75:11 nay, no refuge
75:12 and to thy Lord that day is the sure settlement
75:13 He will inform man on that day of what He has sent forward or delayed
75:14 Nay, man is an evidence against himself
75:15 and even if he thrusts forward his excuses
75:16 Do not move thy tongue thereby to hasten it
75:17 It is for us to collect it and to read it
75:18 and when we read it then follow its reading
75:19 And again it is for us to explain it
75:20 Nay, indeed, but ye love the transient life
75:21 and ye neglect the hereafter
75:22 Faces on that day shall be bright
75:23 gazing on their Lord
75:24 And faces on that day shall be dismal
75:25 Thou wilt think that a back-breaking calamity has happened to them
75:26 Nay, but when the [soul] comes up into the throat
75:27 and it is said, 'Who will charm it back?
75:28 and he will think that it is his parting [hour]
75:29 And leg shall be pressed on leg
75:30 unto thy Lord on that day shall the driving be
75:31 For he did not believes and did not pray
75:32 but he said it was a lie, and turned his back
75:33 Then he went to his people haughtily
75:34 woe to thee, and woe to thee
75:35 again woe to thee, and woe to thee
75:36 Does man think that he shall be left to himself
75:37 Wasn't he a clot of emitted seed
75:38 Then he was congealed blood, and (God) created him, and fashioned him
75:39 and made of him pairs, male and female
75:40 Is not He able to quicken the dead
