75:1  I do swear by Resurrection Day,
75:2  as I swear by the rebuking soul,
75:3  does man think We shall never gather his bones together [again]?
75:4  Of course We are Capable of reshaping even his fingertips.
75:5  Yet man wants to commit sins right out in the open.
75:6  He asks: "When will Resurrection Day be ?"
75:7  When one's sight is dazzled,
75:8  and the moon is eclipsed,
75:9  as the sun and moon are brought together,
75:10  on that day (every) man will say: "Where is there any escape?"
75:11  Of course there will be no sanctuary;
75:12  recourse will be only with your Lord on that day.
75:13  Man will be notified that day about anything he has sent on ahead or else held back.
75:14  Indeed man holds evidence even against himself
75:15  although he may proffer his excuses.
75:16  Do not try to hurry it up with your tongue;
75:17  it is up to Us to collect it, as well as [to know how] to recite it.
75:18  So whenever We do read it, follow in its reading;
75:19  it is then
75:20  Indeed how you (all) love the fleeting present
75:21  while you neglect the Hereafter!
75:22  Some faces will be radiant on that day,
75:23  looking toward their Lord;
75:24  while other faces will be scowling on that day,
75:25  thinking that some impoverishing blow will be dealt them.
75:26  Indeed when it reaches as high as one's collarbone
75:27  and someone says: "Who is such a wizard?",
75:28  he will suppose that it means leave-taking
75:29  while one shin will twist around the other shin [to keep it from moving];
75:30  towards your Lord will the Drive be on that day!
75:31  He was not believing and did not pray,
75:32  but said: "No!" [to the truth] and turned away.
75:33  Then he stalked off haughtily to his family,
75:34  [though] closer to you and even closer!
75:35  Then closer to you [lies your doom] and still closer!
75:36  Does man think he'll be left neglected [without punishment]?
75:37  Was he not once a drop of ejected semen?
75:38  Then he became a clot, so [Allah (God)] created and fashioned [him]
75:39  and made him into two sexes, male and female.
75:40  Is such a Being not Able to revive the dead?
