N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 I SWEAR by the Day of Resurrection,
75:2 and by the self-reproaching soul!
75:3 Does man think We shall never put his bones together again?
75:4 Indeed, We can remould his very fingers!
75:5 Yet man would ever deny what is to come.
75:6 ‘When will this be,‘ he asks, ‘this Day of Resurrection?‘
75:7 But when the sight of mortals is confounded
75:8 and the moon eclipsed;
75:9 when sun and moon are joined together
75:10 on that day man will ask: ‘Whither shall I flee?‘
75:11 No, there shall be no refuge;
75:12 for to your Lord, on that day, all shall be restored.
75:13 Indeed, man shall on that day be told of all he did, from first to last.
75:14 Indeed, man shall bear witness against himself,
75:15 plead as he may with his excuses.
75:16 (You¹ need not move your tongue too fast to learn this revelation.
75:17 We Ourself shall see to its collection and recital.
75:18 When We read it, follow its words attentively;
75:19 We shall Ourself explain its meaning.)
75:20 No! But you² love this fleeting life,
75:21 and ignore the life to come.
75:22 On that day there shall be joyous faces,
75:23 looking towards their Lord.
75:24 On that day there shall be mournful faces,
75:25 dreading some great affliction.
75:26 No! But when a man‘s soul is about to leave him
75:27 and those around him say: ‘Will no one save him?‘
75:28 When he knows it is the final parting
75:29 and leg and leg are twined ―
75:30 on that day to your Lord he shall be driven.
75:31 For in this life he neither believed nor prayed;
75:32 he denied the Truth and, turning his back,
75:33 went to his kin elated with pride.
75:34 Well have you deserved this doom; well have you deserved it.
75:35 Well have you deserved this doom: too well have you deserved it!
75:36 Does man think he will be left alone, to no purpose?
75:37 Was he not a drop of ejaculated semen?
75:38 He became a clot of blood;³ then God formed and moulded him,
75:39 and gave him male and female parts.
75:40 Has He no power, then, to raise the dead to life?
