Holy Quran 75


1I CALL TO WITNESS the Day of Resurrection,
2And I call the reprehensive soul to witness:
3Does man think We shall not put his bones together?
4Surely We are able to reform even his finger-tips.
5Yet man is sceptical of what is right before him.
6He asks: "When will the Day of Resurrection be?"
7Yet when the eyes are dazzled,
8The moon eclipsed,
9And the sun and moon are conjoined,
10That day man will say: "Where can I find escape?"
11Never so, for there will be no escape.
12With your Lord alone will be the retreat on that day.
13Then man will be told what he had sent ahead (of good) and what he had left behind.
14In fact man is a witness against himself,
15Whatever the excuses he may offer.
16Do not forestall (the revelation before its completion) by acting in haste.
17Surely its collection and recitation are Our responsibility.
18So, as We recite it, follow its reading.
19The exposition of its meaning surely rests on Us.
20But no. You love this transient life,
21And neglect the Hereafter.
22How many faces will be refulgent on that Day,
23Waiting for their Lord.
24And how many faces on that Day will be woe-begone
25Fearing that a great disaster is going to befall them.
26Never so, for when life withdraws into the clavicula,
27And it is asked: "Is there any reciter of charms and amulets?"
28He will then realise it is the parting,
29And anguish will be heaped upon anguish:
30To your Lord then will be the driving.
31For he neither believed nor prayed,
32But only disavowed and turned away;
33Then he strutted back to his people.
34Alas the woe for you, alas!
35Alas, the woe for you!
36Does man think that he will be left alone to himself, free?
37Was he not an emitted drop of semen,
38Then formed into an embryo? Then He fashioned, shaped and proportioned
39And assigned it sexes, male and female.
40Cannot such as He bring the dead to life?
