75:1  NAY! I call to witness the Day of Resurrection
75:2  But nay! I call to witness the accusing voice of man's own conscience
75:3  Does man think that We cannot [resurrect him and] bring his bones together again
75:4  Yea indeed, We are able to make whole his very finger-tips
75:5  None the less man chooses to deny what lies ahead of him
75:6  asking [derisively], "When is that Resurrection Day to be?"
75:7  But [on that Day,] when the eyesight is by fear confounded
75:8  and the moon is darkened
75:9  and the sun and the moon are brought togethe
75:10  on that Day will man exclaim "Whither to flee?"
75:11  But nay: no refuge [for thee, O man]
75:12  With thy Sustainer, on that Day, the journey's end will be
75:13  Man will be apprised, on that Day, of what he has done and what he has left undone
75:14  nay, but man shall against himself be an eye-witness
75:15  even though he may veil himself in excuses
75:16  MOVE NOT thy tongue in haste, [repeating the words of the revelation:]
75:17  for, behold, it is for Us to gather it [in thy heart,] and to cause it to be read [as it ought to be read]
75:18  Thus, when We recite it, follow thou its wording [with all thy mind]
75:19  and then, behold, it will be for Us to make its meaning clear
75:20  NAY, but [most of] you love this fleeting life
75:21  and give no thought to the life to come [and to Judgment Day]
75:22  Some faces will on that Day be bright with happiness
75:23  looking up to their Sustainer
75:24  and some faces will on that Day be overcast with despair
75:25  knowing that a crushing calamity is about to befall them
75:26  NAY, but when [the last breath] comes up to the throat [of a dying man]
75:27  and people ask, "Is there any wizard [that could save him]?"
75:28  the while he [himself] knows that this is the parting
75:29  and is enwrapped in the pangs of deat
75:30  at that time towards thy Sustainer does he feel impelled to turn
75:31  [Useless, though, will be his repentance: for [as long as he was alive] he did not accept the truth, nor did he pray [for enlightenment]
75:32  but, on the contrary, he gave the lie to the truth and turned away [from it]
75:33  and then went arrogantly back to what he had come from
75:34  [And yet, O man, thine end comes hourly] nearer unto thee, and nearer –
75:35  and ever nearer unto thee, and nearer
75:36  DOES MAN, then, think that he is to be left to himself to go about at will
75:37  Was he not once a [mere] drop of sperm that had been spilt
75:38  and thereafter became a germ-cell - whereupon He created and formed [it] in accordance with what [it] was meant to be
75:39  and fashioned out of it the two sexes, the male and the female
75:40  Is not He, then; able to bring the dead back to life
