75:1  I CALL TO WITNESS the Day of Resurrection
75:2  And I call the reprehensive soul to witness
75:3  Does man think We shall not put his bones together
75:4  Surely We are able to reform even his finger-tips
75:5  Yet man is sceptical of what is right before him
75:6  He asks: "When will the Day of Resurrection be?"
75:7  Yet when the eyes are dazzled
75:8  The moon eclipsed
75:9  And the sun and moon are conjoined
75:10  That day man will say: "Where can I find escape?"
75:11  Never so, for there will be no escape
75:12  With your Lord alone will be the retreat on that day
75:13  Then man will be told what he had sent ahead (of good) and what he had left behind
75:14  In fact man is a witness against himself
75:15  Whatever the excuses he may offer
75:16  Do not forestall (the revelation before its completion) by acting in haste
75:17  Surely its collection and recitation are Our responsibility
75:18  So, as We recite it, follow its reading
75:19  The exposition of its meaning surely rests on Us
75:20  But no. You love this transient life
75:21  And neglect the Hereafter
75:22  How many faces will be refulgent on that Day
75:23  Waiting for their Lord
75:24  And how many faces on that Day will be woe-begon
75:25  Fearing that a great disaster is going to befall them
75:26  Never so, for when life withdraws into the clavicula
75:27  And it is asked: "Is there any reciter of charms and amulets?"
75:28  He will then realise it is the parting
75:29  And anguish will be heaped upon anguish
75:30  To your Lord then will be the driving
75:31  For he neither believed nor prayed
75:32  But only disavowed and turned away
75:33  Then he strutted back to his people
75:34  Alas the woe for you, alas
75:35  Alas, the woe for you
75:36  Does man think that he will be left alone to himself, free
75:37  Was he not an emitted drop of semen
75:38  Then formed into an embryo? Then He fashioned, shaped and proportione
75:39  And assigned it sexes, male and female
75:40  Cannot such as He bring the dead to life
