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 dazed
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 clavicles
75:27 and it is said, 'Who is an enchanter?'
75:28 and he thinks that it is the parting
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 nearer
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?
