75:1  Nay! I swear by (or call to witness) the Day of Resurrection
75:2  Nay! I swear by (or call to witness) the self-accusing soul
75:3  Does man think that We shall not gather his bones
75:4  Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertip
75:5  Nay! Man desires to give the lie to what is before him
75:6  He asks, "When is the day of resurrection?"
75:7  So when the sight becomes dazzled
75:8  And the moon becomes dark
75:9  And the sun and the moon are brought together
75:10  Man shall say on that day, "Whither can I flee for refuge?"
75:11  By no means! There shall be no place of refuge
75:12  With your Lord alone shall on that day be the place of rest
75:13  Man shall on that day be informed of what he sent before and what he put off
75:14  Nay! Man is telling evidence against himself
75:15  Though he puts forth his excuses
75:16  Move not your tongue with it (the Quran) to make haste with it
75:17  Surely it is for Us to collect it and to recite (or enact) it
75:18  Therefore when We have recited it, follow its recitation
75:19  Nay, more, it is for Us to explain (and clarify) it
75:20  Nay! But you do love the fleeting Now
75:21  And neglect the Hereafter
75:22  Some faces on that Day shall be bright
75:23  Looking to their Lord
75:24  And other faces on that Day shall be gloomy
75:25  Knowing that there will be made to befall them some great calamity
75:26  Nay! When the soul comes up to the throat
75:27  And it is said, "Who will be a magician (to restore him)
75:28  And he is sure that it is the time of partin
75:29  And one leg will be tied to another (i.e. after death)
75:30  To your Lord on that day shall be the driving
75:31  So he did not accept the truth, nor did he pray
75:32  But called the truth a lie and turned back
75:33  Then he went to his folk, arrogant
75:34  Nearer unto you and nearer (comes the doom)
75:35  Again, nearer unto you and nearer (comes the doom)
75:36  Does man think that he is to be left to wander aimless (or purposeless)
75:37  Was he not a small seed in the seminal elements
75:38  Then he was a clot of blood, so He created (him) then made (him) perfect
75:39  Then He made of him two kinds, the male and the female
75:40  Is not He able to give life to the dead
