Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 No! I swear by the Day of Rising!
75:2 No! I swear by the self-reproaching self.
75:3 Does man imagine We will not reassemble his bones?
75:4 On the contrary! We are well able to reshape his fingers.
75:5 Yet man still wants to deny what is ahead of him,
75:6 asking, ´So when is the Day of Rising?´
75:7 But when the eyesight is dazzled,
75:8 and the moon is eclipsed,
75:9 and the sun and moon are fused together,
75:10 on that Day man will say, ´Where can I run?´
75:11 No indeed! There will be no safe place.
75:12 That Day the only resting place will be your Lord.
75:13 That Day man will be told what he did and failed to do.
75:14 In fact, man will be clear proof against himself
75:15 in spite of any excuses he might offer.
75:16 Do not move your tongue trying to hasten it.
75:17 Its collection and recitation are Our affair.
75:18 So when We recite it, follow its recitation.
75:19 Then its explanation is Our concern.
75:20 No indeed! But you love this fleeting world
75:21 and you disregard the Next World.
75:22 Faces that Day will be radiant,
75:23 gazing at their Lord.
75:24 And faces that Day will be glowering,
75:25 realising that a back-breaking blow has fallen.
75:26 No indeed! When it reaches the gullet
75:27 and he hears the words, ´Who can heal him now?´
75:28 and he knows it is indeed the final parting,
75:29 and one leg is entwined with the other:
75:30 that Day he will be driven to your Lord.
75:31 He neither affirmed the truth nor did he do salat,
75:32 but rather denied the truth and turned away.
75:33 and then went off to his family, swaggering.
75:34 It is coming closer to you and closer.
75:35 Then closer to you and closer still.
75:36 Does man reckon he will be left to go on unchecked?
75:37 Was he not a drop of ejaculated sperm,
75:38 then a blood-clot which He created and shaped,
75:39 making from it both sexes, male and female?
75:40 Is He who does this not able to bring the dead to life?
