Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
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-begone
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 proportioned
75:39 And assigned it sexes, male and female.
75:40 Cannot such as He bring the dead to life?
