as rendered by Mohammad Shafi

Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
---
75:1 Nay, [man's negative thinking on Resurrection is not right!] I do swear by the Day of Resurrection!
75:2 And, nay! I do swear by the self-reproaching soul [that man's negative thinking on Resuuection is not right!]
75:3 Does man think that We shall not be able to collect his bones?
75:4 Yes, We have the power to restore [even] his fingertips.h
75:5 But, man desires to go on doing evil in what lies ahead of him [in worldly life].
75:6 He asks, "When will the Day of Resurrection be?"
75:7 So when the sight is dazzled,
75:8 And the moon disappears,
75:9 And the sun and the moon are joined.
75:10 Man will ask that Day, "Where is the exit?"
75:11 No! No escape!
75:12 With your Lord that day is the journey's end!
75:13 Man will be informed that Day what he had sent ahead and what he had left behind [undone].h
75:14 Man would rather be a witness against himself
75:15 Even though he may put up excuses.
75:16 Move not [O Prophet] your tongue with it [revelation] to make haste with it.
75:17 Its collection and recital does indeed rest on Us.
75:18 So when We recite it, attentively follow its recitation.
75:19 Then, indeed, it is for Us to make its meaning clear.
75:20 Nay, you [mankind] would rather love the fleeting present,
75:21 And neglect the Hereafter!
75:22 Faces that day will be bright,
75:23 Looking at their Lord expectantly.
75:24 And faces that day will be despondent,
75:25 Expecting a great disaster to befall them.
75:26 Behold! When in pangs of death,
75:27 And question raised, "Any magician [who could save him]?"
75:28 And he thought it was the time for parting,
75:29 And the leg was put close to the [other] leg,
75:30 To your Lord was the direction that day.
75:31 And neither did he stand by the truth nor did he pray,
75:32 And, on the other hand, he denied the Truth and turned his face away,
75:33 And then he went back to his people boasting [telling them how `bravely' he denied the Truth]!
75:34 [The Truth is drawing] nearer and nearer to you [O dying man],
75:35 To repeat, [the Truth is drawing] nearer and nearer to you [O dying man]!
75:36 Does man think that he will be left to fend for himself?
75:37 Was he not a tiny ovum fertilised by sperm emitted?
75:38 Then he became a leech-like clinging clot of curdled blood; and He created him and set his shape right.
75:39 Then He made from him pairs: male and female.
75:40 Is not That One [the Creator] powerful enough to give life to the dead!?
