I swear by the Day of Resurrection,
and I swear by the self-reproaching person (believer)!
Does mankind think that We shall not assemble their bones?
Yes, We are Able to put together in perfect order very tips of their fingers.
But mankind desires to continue committing sins.
He (mankind) asks: “When will be this Day of Resurrection?”
So, (it will come) when the sight will be dazed,
the moon will be eclipsed,
and the sun and moon will be joined together:
on that Day mankind will say: “Where (is the refuge) to flee?”
No! There will be no refuge!
On that Day, the place of rest will only be to your Lord.
On that Day mankind will be informed of (their deeds) what they sent forward and what they left behind.
Nay! Mankind will be witness against themselves (body parts will speak about deeds),
though they may put forth their excuses (to cover evil deeds).
(O Muhammad) don’t move your tongue with it (the Qur’an) to make haste therewith (to memorize the Verses),
surely, it is upon Us to collect it and give you (O Muhammad) the ability to recite it (the Qur’an),
and when We have recited it to you (O Muhammad through Gabriel), then you follow its (the Qur’an’s) recitation,
then surely, it is for Us to make it clear to you,
nay but you (mankind) love the present life of this world,
and leave the Hereafter.
On that Day, some faces will be radiant,
looking towards their Lord.
On that Day, other faces will be gloomy,
thinking that some calamity is about to fall on them.
Nay, when it (soul) reaches to the collar bone (up to the throat in its exit),
and it will be said: “Who can cure (save from death)?”
He (dying person) will conclude that it was the time of departure (death);
and one leg will be joined with another leg (shrouded);
on that Day, the drive will be to your Lord!
So the he (disbeliever) neither believed nor prayed;
but (on the contrary) he denied (this Qur’an) and turned away!
Then he walked to his family admiring himself!
Woe to you (disbeliever)! And then (again) woe to you!
(Again) woe to you (disbeliever)! And then (again) woe to you!
Does the human think that it will be left (to wander) without requital (any purpose)?
Was the human not a drop of emitted semen?
Then he became a hanging clot; then (Allah) created and fashioned him in due proportion,
and made him either of the 2 sexes, male and female.
Is not He Able to give life to the dead?
