as rendered by Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar

Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
---
75:1 I swear an oath by the Day of Resurrection.
75:2 And I swear an oath by the reproachful soul.
75:3 Assumes the human being that We will never gather his bones?
75:4 Yea! We are ones who have power to shape his fingers again.
75:5 Nay! The human being wants to act immorally in front of him.
75:6 He asks: When is this Day of Resurrection?
75:7 But when their sight will be astonished
75:8 and the moon will cause the earth to be swallowed
75:9 and the sun and the moon will be gathered,
75:10 the human being will say on that Day: Where is a place to run away to?
75:11 No indeed! There is no refuge.
75:12 With thy Lord on this Day will be thy recourse.
75:13 The human being will be told on that Day what he put forward and what he postponed.
75:14 Nay! The human being is clear evidence against himself.
75:15 And although he would cast his excuses,
75:16 impel not thy tongue to hasten it.
75:17 Truly, on Us is his amassing and its Recitation.
75:18 But when We recited it, follow thou its Recitation.
75:19 From Us after that is its clear explanation.
75:20 No indeed! Nay! You love that which hastens away
75:21 and forsake the world to come.
75:22 Faces on that Day will be ones that beam,
75:23 ones that look towards their Lord.
75:24 And faces on that day will be ones that scowl.
75:25 Thou will think that against them is wreaked a crushing calamity.
75:26 No indeed! When it reached the collar bones at death
75:27 and it was said: Where is one who is a wizard to save me?
75:28 And he thought it to be his parting
75:29 and one leg was intertwined with the other leg,
75:30 that Day he will be driving toward thy Lord
75:31 for he established not the true nor invoked blessings
75:32 and he denied and turned away.
75:33 He went to his people again, going arrogantly.
75:34 Closer to thee! And closer to thee!
75:35 Again closer to thee! And closer to thee!
75:36 Assumes the human being that he will be left aimless?
75:37 Was he not a sperm-drop to be emitted in seminal fluid?
75:38 Again, he had been a clot and He created him and shaped him.
75:39 Then, He made of him two pairs, the male and the female.
75:40 Is not that One Who Has Power over that able to give life to the dead?
