al-Qiyamah (The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection)
as rendered by Hamid S. Aziz

Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
---
75:1 Nay! I swear by (or call to witness) the Day of Resurrection.
75:2 Nay! I swear by (or call to witness) 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 dazzled,
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 can I flee for refuge?"
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 telling evidence against himself,
75:15 Though he puts forth his excuses.
75:16 Move not your tongue with it (the Quran) to make haste with it,
75:17 Surely it is for Us to collect it and to recite (or enact) it.
75:18 Therefore when We have recited it, follow its recitation.
75:19 Nay, more, it is for Us to explain (and clarify) it.
75:20 Nay! But you do love the fleeting Now,
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 the soul comes up to the throat,
75:27 And it is said, "Who will be a magician (to restore him)?
75:28 And he is sure that it is the time of parting
75:29 And one leg will be tied to another (i.e. after death);
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 folk, arrogant.
75:34 Nearer unto you and nearer (comes the doom),
75:35 Again, nearer unto you and nearer (comes the doom).
75:36 Does man think that he is to be left to wander aimless (or purposeless)?
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?
