I do call to witness the Resurrection Day
And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit: (Eschew Evil)
Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones
Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers
But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him
He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
At length, when the sight is dazed
And the moon is buried in darkness
And the sun and moon are joined together,
That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"
By no means! No place of safety
Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest
That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back
Nay, man will be evidence against himself
Even though he were to put up his excuses
Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur'an) to make haste therewith
It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it
But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated)
Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear)
Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life
And leave alone the Hereafter
Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);
Looking towards their Lord
And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal
In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them
Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit)
And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?"
And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting
And one leg will be joined with another
That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord
So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!
But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away
Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit
Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe
Again, Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe
Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)
Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)
Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion (him) in due proportion
And of him He made two sexes, male and female
Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the dead
