Nay, I swear by the ‘Day of Resurrection’!
Nay! I swear by the reproachful- ‘Human Self’
Does man think that We are incapable of constructing his bones?
Yes indeed; We are capable of shaping again his own fingertips.
But man desires to continue in sin.
He asks: "When will be the ‘Day of Resurrection’?"
When the vision will be dazzled,
And the moon will be eclipsed,
And the sun and the moon will be brought together,
Man will say on that day: "Whither to flee?"
Nay, there will be no refuge.
Unto your Lord that day is the refuge.
Man will be informed, on that day, of what He has sent forward, and of what he left behind.
Nay, man is an intelligible evidence against himself,
Even if he offers his excuses.
(O' ‘Muhammad’), move not your tongue concerning (the ‘Qurʾān’) to make haste therewith.
It is incumbent on Us to collect and to promulgate it.
When We recite it, follow its recitation attentively.
Afterwards, It will be incumbent on Us to explain it to you.
Nay, indeed, but you are in love with this transient life,
Faces on that day will be glowing brightly,
Looking steadily and intently on their Lord!
Faces on that day will be gloomy,
Thinking that a crushing calamity is about to fall on them.
Nay, but when the soul comes up into the throat,
There will be a cry: “ Where is the enchanter who can save him”.
Then man will come to know that it is time to leave.
Leg is intertwined with (other) leg.
Unto your Lord on that day will be the driving (of the souls) .
Neither did he acknowledge (the Truth), nor did he pray.
But in fact, he gave no credence to (the ‘Qur’ān’), and took no heed.
Then he went to his family, walking with a haughty look.
Woe unto you and woe unto you!
Again woe unto you and woe unto you!
Does man think that he will be left without purpose?
Was he not a semen-drop, which was emitted?
Afterwards he became a clinging substance; and Allâh formed and molded him,
And made of him pairs, male and female.
Is not He then capable of bringing the dead back to life?.
