75:1  No! I swear by the Day of Resurrection
75:2  No! I swear by the reproachful soul
75:3  What, does man reckon We shall not gather his bones
75:4  Yes indeed; We are able to shape again his fingers
75:5  Nay, but man desires to continue on as a libertine
75:6  asking, 'When shall be the Day of Resurrection?
75:7  But when the sight is daze
75:8  and the moon is eclipsed
75:9  and the sun and moon are brought together
75:10  upon that day man shall say, 'Whither to flee?
75:11  No indeed; not a refuge
75:12  Upon that day the recourse shall be to thy Lord
75:13  Upon that day man shall be told his former deeds and his latter
75:14  nay, man shall be a clear proof against himself
75:15  even though he offer his excuses
75:16  Move not thy tongue with it to hasten it
75:17  Ours it is to gather it, and to recite it
75:18  So, when We recite it, follow thou its recitation
75:19  Then Ours it is to explain it
75:20  No indeed; but you love the hasty world
75:21  and leave be the Hereafter
75:22  Upon that day faces shall be radiant
75:23  gazing upon their Lord
75:24  and upon that day faces shall be scowling
75:25  thou mightest think the Calamity has been wreaked on them
75:26  No indeed; when it reaches the clavicle
75:27  and it is said, 'Who is an enchanter?
75:28  and he thinks that it is the partin
75:29  and leg is intertwined with leg
75:30  upon that day unto thy Lord shall be the driving
75:31  For he confirmed it not, and did not pray
75:32  but he cried it lies, and he turned away
75:33  then he went to his household arrogantly
75:34  Nearer to thee and neare
75:35  then nearer to thee and nearer
75:36  What, does man reckon he shall be left to roam at will
75:37  Was he not a sperm-drop spilled
75:38  Then he was a blood-clot, and He created and formed
75:39  and He made of him two kinds, male and female
75:40  What, is He not able to quicken the dead
