N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Rising of the Dead, Resurrection(al-Qiyamah)
75:1 I SWEAR by the Day of Resurrection
75:2 and by the self-reproaching soul
75:3 Does man think We shall never put his bones together again
75:4 Indeed, We can remould his very fingers
75:5 Yet man would ever deny what is to come
75:6 ‘When will this be,‘ he asks, ‘this Day of Resurrection?&lsquo
75:7 But when the sight of mortals is confounde
75:8 and the moon eclipsed
75:9 when sun and moon are joined togethe
75:10 on that day man will ask: ‘Whither shall I flee?&lsquo
75:11 No, there shall be no refuge
75:12 for to your Lord, on that day, all shall be restored
75:13 Indeed, man shall on that day be told of all he did, from first to last
75:14 Indeed, man shall bear witness against himself
75:15 plead as he may with his excuses
75:16 (You¹ need not move your tongue too fast to learn this revelation
75:17 We Ourself shall see to its collection and recital
75:18 When We read it, follow its words attentively
75:19 We shall Ourself explain its meaning.
75:20 No! But you² love this fleeting life
75:21 and ignore the life to come
75:22 On that day there shall be joyous faces
75:23 looking towards their Lord
75:24 On that day there shall be mournful faces
75:25 dreading some great affliction
75:26 No! But when a man‘s soul is about to leave hi
75:27 and those around him say: ‘Will no one save him?&lsquo
75:28 When he knows it is the final partin
75:29 and leg and leg are twined ―
75:30 on that day to your Lord he shall be driven
75:31 For in this life he neither believed nor prayed
75:32 he denied the Truth and, turning his back
75:33 went to his kin elated with pride
75:34 Well have you deserved this doom; well have you deserved it
75:35 Well have you deserved this doom: too well have you deserved it
75:36 Does man think he will be left alone, to no purpose
75:37 Was he not a drop of ejaculated semen
75:38 He became a clot of blood;³ then God formed and moulded him
75:39 and gave him male and female parts
75:40 Has He no power, then, to raise the dead to life
