Did you notice?
75:1  No! I swear by the Day of the Resurrection
75:2  And no! I swear by the self, constantly self-blaming
75:3  Does man reckon that We will never gather his bones
75:4  Yes indeed, We are (always) Determiners over molding (again) his finger-tips
75:5  No indeed, but man would (like) to act impiously in the (life) before him
75:6  He asks, "When will be the Day of the Resurrection?"
75:7  Yet, when the sight (Literally: the beholding) is dazed
75:8  And the moon eclipses, (Or: cave in)
75:9  And the sun and the moon are gathered together
75:10  Upon that Day man will say, "Where to flee?" (Literally: Where is the fleeing?)
75:11  Not at all, no subterfuge
75:12  To your Lord upon that day will be the repository
75:13  Upon that Day man will be fully informed of whatever he forwarded and deferred
75:14  No indeed, (but) man is a demonstration against himself
75:15  Even though he cast forth his (ready) excuses
75:16  Do not move your tongue with it (The Qur'an) to hasten on with it
75:17  Surely upon Us is the gathering of it and its all-evident reading
75:18  So when We have read it, then closely follow its all-evident reading
75:19  Thereafter surely upon Us is its evident (exposition)
75:20  Not at all! No indeed, (but) you (i.e., mankind) love the hasty (world)
75:21  And leave behind the Hereafter
75:22  Faces upon that Day will be blooming
75:23  Looking towards their Lord
75:24  And faces upon that Day shall be scowling
75:25  Expecting that a (back-breaking) calamity is going to be performed upon them
75:26  Not at all! When it reaches the clavicles
75:27  And it is said, "Who is an enchanter?"
75:28  And he expects that it is the parting
75:29  And shank is entwined with shank
75:30  To your Lord upon that Day will be the driving
75:31  So he neither sincerely (believed) nor prayed
75:32  But he cried lies, and turned away
75:33  Thereafter he went to his family striding haughtily
75:34  (It is) more appropriate to you, then more appropriate! (i.e., punishment)
75:35  Thereafter (it is) more appropriate for you, then more appropriate
75:36  Does man reckon that he will be left in vain
75:37  Was he not a spermdrop ejaculated
75:38  Thereafter he was a clot (i.e., a leach-like clot). So He created, then He molded
75:39  So He made him of two spouses, the male and the female
75:40  Is He (Literally: That) not (always) Determiner over giving life to the dead
