75:1  Verily I swear by the day of resurrection
75:2  and I swear by the soul which accuseth itself
75:3  Doth man think that We will not gather his bones together
75:4  Yea: We are able to put together the smallest bones of his fingers
75:5  But man chooseth to be wicked, for the time which is before him
75:6  He asketh, when will the day of resurrection be
75:7  But when the sight shall be dazzled
75:8  and the moon shall be eclipsed
75:9  and the sun and the moon shall be in conjunction
75:10  on that day man shall say, where is a place of refuge
75:11  By no means: There shall be no place to fly unto
75:12  With thy Lord shall be the sure mansion of rest on that day
75:13  On that day shall a man be told that which he hath done first and last
75:14  Yea; a man shall be an evidence against himself
75:15  And though he offer his excuses, they shall not be received
75:16  Move not thy tongue, O Mohammed, in repeating the revelations brought thee by Gabriel, before he shall have finished the same, that thou mayest quickly commit them to memory
75:17  For the collecting the Koran in thy mind, and the teaching thee the true reading thereof are incumbent on Us
75:18  But when We shall have read the same unto thee by the tongue of the angel, do thou follow the reading thereof
75:19  And afterwards it shall be our part to explain it unto thee
75:20  By no means shalt thou be thus hasty for the future. But ye love that which hasteneth away
75:21  and neglect the life to come
75:22  Some countenances, on that day, shall be bright
75:23  looking towards their Lord
75:24  and some countenances, on that day, shall be dismal
75:25  They shall think that a crushing calamity shall be brought upon them
75:26  Assuredly. When a man's soul shall come up to his throat, in his last agony
75:27  and the standers-by shall say, who bringeth a charm to recover him
75:28  And shall think it to be his departure out of this world
75:29  and one leg shall be joined with the other leg
75:30  On that day unto thy Lord shall he be driven
75:31  For he believed not, neither did he pray
75:32  but he accused God's apostle of imposture, and turned back from obeying him
75:33  Then he departed unto his family, walking with a haughty mien
75:34  Wherefore, woe be unto thee; woe
75:35  And again, woe be unto thee; woe
75:36  Doth man think that he shall be left at full liberty, without control
75:37  Was he not a drop of seed, which was emitted
75:38  Afterwards he became a little coagulated blood; and God formed him, and fashioned him with just proportion
75:39  And made of him two sexes, the male and the female
75:40  Is not he who hath done this able to quicken the dead
