Lo! I swear by the Day of Resurrection:
Lo! I swear by the reproaching voice of the inner 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 has a natural inclination to evil,
(Sarcastically) asking, "When will this Day of Resurrection be?"
(It will be) when the sight is dazzled,
And the moon is eclipsed,
And the sun and the moon are brought together,
On that day man will cry: "Whither to flee?"
Nay! There is no refuge.
To your Lord, that day, is the refuge.
Man will then be fully informed of what he has sent forward and left behind.
No indeed! Man will testify against himself,
Even if he offers his excuses.
Do not Move your tongue with it to hasten
It is incumbent on Us to collect and recite It.
So, when We recite It, just follow Its recitation.
Afterwards, it is also incumbent on Us to explain It.
Nay ! In fact, you are in love with this fleeting life;
And you show no interest in the Hereafter.
Some faces, that day, will be brightly glowing,
Looking at their Lord!
And other faces, that day, will be gloomy,
Thinking that a crushing calamity is about to fall on them.
No! But when the soul reaches the collarbone,
There will be a cry: “Where is the enchanter (who can save him).”
And the dying person becomes aware that it is the parting:
And then one of his legs is laid over the other.
On that day to your Lord will be the driving.
And the (impious) did not acknowledge (the Truth), neither did he pray.
But on the contrary, he persisted in denying (the Qur’ān), falling away from the Faith.
Then went off to his family, walking proudly with his head high.
Lo! Your doom is coming closer and even closer!
Lo! Once more, your doom is coming closer and even closer!
Does man think that he will be left without purpose?
Was he not once a drop of fluid which gushed forth?
Afterwards he became a clinging clot; 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?
