In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful
75:1 I do call to witness the Resurrection Day;
75:2 And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit: (Eschew Evil).
75:3 Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?
75:4 Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers.
75:5 But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.
75:6 He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
75:7 At length, when the sight is dazed,
75:8 And the moon is buried in darkness.
75:9 And the sun and moon are joined together,-
75:10 That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"
75:11 By no means! No place of safety!
75:12 Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.
75:13 That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.
75:14 Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
75:15 Even though he were to put up his excuses.
75:16 Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur'an) to make haste therewith.
75:17 It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:
75:18 But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated):
75:19 Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear):
75:20 Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
75:21 And leave alone the Hereafter.
75:22 Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);-
75:23 Looking towards their Lord;
75:24 And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
75:25 In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them;
75:26 Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit),
75:27 And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?"
75:28 And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;
75:29 And one leg will be joined with another:
75:30 That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
75:31 So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!-
75:32 But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away!
75:33 Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit!
75:34 Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
75:35 Again, Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
75:36 Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?
75:37 Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
75:38 Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did (God) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.
75:39 And of him He made two sexes, male and female.
75:40 Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
