Shakir rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection.
75:2 Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul.
75:3 Does man think that We shall not gather his bones?
75:4 Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertips
75:5 Nay! man desires to give the lie to what is before him.
75:6 He asks: When is the day of resurrection?
75:7 So when the sight becomes dazed,
75:8 And the moon becomes dark,
75:9 And the sun and the moon are brought together,
75:10 Man shall say on that day: Whither to fly to?
75:11 By no means! there shall be no place of refuge!
75:12 With your Lord alone shall on that day be the place of rest.
75:13 Man shall on that day be informed of what he sent before and (what he) put off.
75:14 Nay! man is evidence against himself,
75:15 Though he puts forth his excuses.
75:16 Do not move your tongue with it to make haste with it,
75:17 Surely on Us (devolves) the collecting of it and the reciting of it.
75:18 Therefore when We have recited it, follow its recitation.
75:19 Again on Us (devolves) the explaining of it.
75:20 Nay! But you love the present life,
75:21 And neglect the hereafter.
75:22 (Some) faces on that day shall be bright,
75:23 Looking to their Lord.
75:24 And (other) faces on that day shall be gloomy,
75:25 Knowing that there will be made to befall them some great calamity.
75:26 Nay! When it comes up to the throat,
75:27 And it is said: Who will be a magician?
75:28 And he is sure that it is the (hour of) parting
75:29 And affliction is combined with affliction;
75:30 To your Lord on that day shall be the driving.
75:31 So he did not accept the truth, nor did he pray,
75:32 But called the truth a lie and turned back,
75:33 Then he went to his followers, walking away in haughtiness.
75:34 Nearer to you (is destruction) and nearer,
75:35 Again (consider how) nearer to you and nearer.
75:36 Does man think that he is to be left to wander without an aim?
75:37 Was he not a small seed in the seminal elements,
75:38 Then he was a clot of blood, so He created (him) then made (him) perfect.
75:39 Then He made of him two kinds, the male and the female.
75:40 Is not He able to give life to the dead?
