al-Qiyamah (The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection)
as rendered by Wahiduddin Khan

Wahiduddin Khan rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
---
75:1 By the Day of Resurrection,
75:2 and by the self-reproaching soul!
75:3 Does man think that We cannot [resurrect him and] bring his bones together again?
75:4 Indeed, We have the power to restore his very finger tips!
75:5 Yet man wants to deny what is ahead of him:
75:6 he asks, When is this Day of Resurrection to be?
75:7 But [on that Day], when mortal sight is confounded,
75:8 and the moon is eclipsed,
75:9 when the sun and the moon are brought together,
75:10 on that Day man will ask, Where can I escape?
75:11 But there is nowhere to take refuge:
75:12 on that Day, to your Lord alone is the recourse.
75:13 On that Day, man will be told of all that he has sent before and what he has left behind.
75:14 Indeed, man shall be a witness against himself,
75:15 in spite of all the excuses he may offer.
75:16 [Prophet], do not move your tongue too fast in your attempt to learn this revelation:
75:17 We Ourself shall see to its collection and recital.
75:18 When We have recited it, follow its words attentively;
75:19 and then, it will be for Us to make its meaning clear.
75:20 Truly, you love immediate gain
75:21 and neglect the Hereafter.
75:22 Some faces will be radiant on that Day,
75:23 looking towards their Lord;
75:24 and some faces will on that Day be gloomy,
75:25 dreading some great affliction.
75:26 But when [mans soul] reaches the throat,
75:27 and when it is asked: Could any magician save him now?;
75:28 and he knows that it is the time of parting;
75:29 when his legs are brought together [when affliction is combined with affliction];
75:30 on that Day he will be driven towards your Lord!
75:31 He neither believed nor prayed,
75:32 but rejected the Truth and turned away!
75:33 Then he went off to his people, swaggering.
75:34 Woe to you, [O man!], yes, woe to you.
75:35 Again, woe to you, [O man!], yes, woe to you!
75:36 Does man, then, think that he is to be left to himself, to go about at will?
75:37 Was he not once a drop of ejaculated semen,
75:38 which then became a leech-like clot; then God shaped and fashioned him in due proportion,
75:39 fashioning out of him the two sexes, the male and the female?
75:40 Then is He not able to bring the dead back to life?
