Maududi rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 Nay, I swear by the Day of Resurrection;
75:2 and nay, I swear by the self-reproaching soul!
75:3 Does man imagine that We will not be able to bring his bones together again?
75:4 Yes indeed; We have the power to remould even his finger-tips.
75:5 But man desires to persist in his evil ways.
75:6 He asks: "When will the Day of Resurrection be?"
75:7 When the sight is dazed,
75:8 and the moon is eclipsed,
75:9 and the sun and the moon are joined together,
75:10 on that Day will man say: "Whither the refuge?"
75:11 No, there is no refuge.
75:12 With your Lord alone will be the retreat that Day.
75:13 On that Day will man be apprised of his deeds, both the earlier and the later.
75:14 But lo, man is well aware of himself,
75:15 even though he might make up excuses.
75:16 (O Prophet), do not stir your tongue hastily (to commit the Revelation to memory).
75:17 Surely it is for Us to have you commit it to memory and to recite it.
75:18 And so when We recite it, follow its recitation attentively;
75:19 then it will be for Us to explain it.
75:20 Nay; the truth is that you love ardently (the good of this world) that can be obtained hastily,
75:21 and are oblivious of the Hereafter.
75:22 Some faces on that Day will be fresh and resplendent,
75:23 and will be looking towards their Lord;
75:24 and some faces on that Day will be gloomy,
75:25 believing that a crushing calamity is about to strike them.
75:26 Nay; when a man´s soul reaches up to the throat,
75:27 and it is said: "Is there any enchanter who can step forward and help (by his chanting)?"
75:28 and he realises that the hour of parting is come,
75:29 and calf is inter-twined with calf.
75:30 On that Day you will be driven to your Lord.
75:31 But he did not verify the Truth, nor did he observe Prayer;
75:32 on the contrary, he gave the lie to the Truth and turned his back upon it,
75:33 then he went back to his kinsfolk, elated with pride.
75:34 This (attitude) is worthy of you, altogether worthy;
75:35 again, it is worthy of you, altogether worthy.
75:36 Does man think that he will be left alone, unquestioned?
75:37 Was he not a drop of ejaculated semen,
75:38 then he became a clot, and then Allah made it into a living body and proportioned its parts,
75:39 and then He made of him a pair, male and female?
75:40 Does He, then, not have the power to bring back the dead to life?
