al-Qiyamah (The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection)
as rendered by Mustafa Khattab

The Clear Quran, Dr. Mustafa Khattab rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 I do swear by the Day of Judgment!
75:2 And I do swear by the self-reproaching soul!
75:3 Do people think We cannot reassemble their bones?
75:4 Yes ˹indeed˺! We are ˹most˺ capable of restoring ˹even˺ their very fingertips.
75:5 Still people want to deny what is yet to come,
75:6 asking ˹mockingly˺, “When is this Day of Judgment?”
75:7 But when the sight is stunned,
75:8 and the moon is dimmed,
75:9 and the sun and the moon are brought together,
75:10 on that Day one will cry, “Where is the escape?”
75:11 But no! There will be no refuge.
75:12 On that Day all will end up before your Lord.
75:13 All will then be informed of what they have sent forth and left behind.
75:14 In fact, people will testify against their own souls,
75:15 despite the excuses they come up with.
75:16 Do not rush your tongue trying to memorize ˹a revelation of˺ the Quran.
75:17 It is certainly upon Us to ˹make you˺ memorize and recite it.
75:18 So once We have recited a revelation ˹through Gabriel˺, follow its recitation ˹closely˺.
75:19 Then it is surely upon Us to make it clear ˹to you˺.
75:20 But no! In fact, you love this fleeting world,
75:21 and neglect the Hereafter.
75:22 On that Day ˹some˺ faces will be bright,
75:23 looking at their Lord.
75:24 And ˹other˺ faces will be gloomy,
75:25 anticipating something devastating to befall them.
75:26 But no! ˹Beware of the day˺ when the soul reaches the collar bone ˹as it leaves˺,
75:27 and it will be said, “Is there any healer ˹who can save this life˺?”
75:28 And the dying person realizes it is ˹their˺ time to depart,
75:29 and ˹then˺ their feet are tied together ˹in a shroud˺.
75:30 On that day they will be driven to your Lord ˹alone˺.
75:31 This denier neither believed nor prayed,
75:32 but persisted in denial and turned away,
75:33 then went to their own people, walking boastfully.
75:34 Woe to you, and more woe!
75:35 Again, woe to you, and even more woe!
75:36 Do people think they will be left without purpose?
75:37 Were they not ˹once˺ a sperm-drop emitted?
75:38 Then they became a clinging clot ˹of blood˺, then He developed and perfected their form,
75:39 producing from it both sexes, male and female.
75:40 Is such ˹a Creator˺ unable to bring the dead back to life?
