al-Qiyamah (The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection)
as rendered by Rashad Khalifa

Rashad Khalifa rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
---
75:1 I swear by the Day of Resurrection.
75:2 And I swear by the blaming soul.
75:3 Does the human being think that we will not reconstruct his bones?
75:4 Yes indeed; we are able to reconstruct his finger tip.
75:5 But the human being tends to believe only what he sees in front of him.
75:6 He doubts the Day of Resurrection!
75:7 Once the vision is sharpened.
75:8 And the moon is eclipsed.
75:9 And the sun and the moon crash into one another.
75:10 The human being will say on that day, "Where is the escape?"
75:11 Absolutely, there is no escape.
75:12 To your Lord, on that day, is the final destiny.
75:13 The human being will be informed, on that day, of everything he did to advance himself, and everything he did to regress himself.
75:14 The human being will be his own judge.
75:15 No excuses will be accepted.
75:16 Do not move your tongue to hasten it.
75:17 It is we who will collect it into Quran.
75:18 Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran.
75:19 Then it is we who will explain it.
75:20 Indeed, you love this fleeting life.
75:21 While disregarding the Hereafter.
75:22 Some faces, on that day, will be happy
75:23 Looking at their Lord.
75:24 Other faces will be, on that day, miserable.
75:25 Expecting the worst.
75:26 Indeed, when (the soul) reaches the throat.
75:27 And it is ordered: "Let go!"
75:28 He knows it is the end.
75:29 Each leg will lay motionless next to the other leg.
75:30 To your Lord, on that day, is the summoning.
75:31 For he observed neither the charity, nor the contact prayers (Salat).
75:32 But he disbelieved and turned away.
75:33 With his family, he acted arrogantly.
75:34 You have deserved this.
75:35 Indeed, you have deserved this.
75:36 Does the human being think that he will go to nothing?
75:37 Was he not a drop of ejected semen?
75:38 Then He created an embryo out of it!
75:39 He made it into male or female!
75:40 Is He then unable to revive the dead?
