Qur'an - Translation

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[75.1] Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection.

[75.2] Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul.

[75.3] Does man think that We shall not gather his bones?

[75.4] Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertips,

[75.5] Nay! man desires to give the lie to what is before him.

[75.6] He asks: When is the day of resurrection?

[75.7] So when the sight becomes dazed,

[75.8] And the moon becomes dark,

[75.9] And the sun and the moon are brought together,

[75.10] Man shall say on that day: Whither to fly to?

[75.11] By no means! there shall be no place of refuge!

[75.12] With your Lord alone shall on that day be the place of rest.

[75.13] Man shall on that day be informed of what he sent before and (what he) put off.

[75.14] Nay! man is evidence against himself,

[75.15] Though he puts forth his excuses.

[75.16] Do not move your tongue with it to make haste with it,

[75.17] Surely on Us (devolves) the collecting of it and the reciting of it.

[75.18] Therefore when We have recited it, follow its recitation.

[75.19] Again on Us (devolves) the explaining of it.

[75.20] Nay! But you love the present life,

[75.21] And neglect the hereafter.

[75.22] (Some) faces on that day shall be bright,

[75.23] Looking to their Lord.

[75.24] And (other) faces on that day shall be gloomy,

[75.25] Knowing that there will be made to befall them some great calamity.

[75.26] Nay! When it comes up to the throat,

[75.27] And it is said: Who will be a magician?

[75.28] And he is sure that it is the (hour of) parting,

[75.29] And affliction is combined with affliction;

[75.30] To your Lord on that day shall be the driving.

[75.31] So he did not accept the truth, nor did he pray,

[75.32] But called the truth a lie and turned back,

[75.33] Then he went to his followers, walking away in haughtiness.

[75.34] Nearer to you (is destruction) and nearer,

[75.35] Again (consider how) nearer to you and nearer.

[75.36] Does man think that he is to be left to wander without an aim?

[75.37] Was he not a small seed in the seminal elements,

[75.38] Then he was a clot of blood, so He created (him) then made (him) perfect.

[75.39] Then He made of him two kinds, the male and the female.

[75.40] Is not He able to give life to the dead?
