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?
