75:1  It needeth not that I swear by the day of the RESURRECTION
75:2  Or that I swear by the self-accusing soul
75:3  Thinketh man that we shall not re-unite his bones
75:4  Aye! his very finger tips are we able evenly to replace
75:5  But man chooseth to deny what is before him
75:6  He asketh, "When this day of Resurrection?"
75:7  But when the eye shall be dazzled
75:8  And when the moon shall be darkened
75:9  And the sun and the moon shall be together
75:10  On that day man shall cry, "Where is there a place to flee to?"
75:11  But in vain - there is no refuge
75:12  With thy Lord on that day shall be the sole asylum
75:13  On that day shall man be told of all that he hath done first and last
75:14  Yea, a man shall be the eye witness against himself
75:15  And even if he put forth his plea. . .
75:16  (Move not thy tongue in haste to follow and master this revelation
75:17  For we will see to the collecting and the recital of it
75:18  But when we have recited it, then follow thou the recital
75:19  And, verily, afterwards it shall be ours to make it clear to thee.
75:20  Aye, but ye love the transitory
75:21  And ye neglect the life to come
75:22  On that day shall faces beam with light
75:23  Outlooking towards their Lord
75:24  And faces on that day shall be dismal
75:25  As if they thought that some great calamity would befal them
75:26  Aye, when the soul shall come up into the throat
75:27  And there shall be a cry, "Who hath a charm that can restore him?"
75:28  And the man feeleth that the time of his departure is come
75:29  And when one leg shall be laid over the other
75:30  To thy Lord on that day shall he be driven on
75:31  For he believed not, and he did not pray
75:32  But he called the truth a lie and turned his back
75:33  Then, walking with haughty men, rejoined his people
75:34  That Hour is nearer to thee and nearer
75:35  It is ever nearer to thee and nearer still
75:36  Thinketh man that he shall be left supreme
75:37  Was he not a mere embryo
75:38  Then he became thick blood of which God formed him and fashioned him
75:39  And made him twain, male and female
75:40  Is not He powerful enough to quicken the dead
