Nay, [man's negative thinking on Resurrection is not right!] I do swear by the Day of Resurrection
And, nay! I do swear by the self-reproaching soul [that man's negative thinking on Resuuection is not right!
Does man think that We shall not be able to collect his bones
Yes, We have the power to restore [even] his fingertips.h
But, man desires to go on doing evil in what lies ahead of him [in worldly life]
He asks, "When will the Day of Resurrection be?"
So when the sight is dazzled
And the moon disappears
And the sun and the moon are joined
Man will ask that Day, "Where is the exit?"
With your Lord that day is the journey's end
Man will be informed that Day what he had sent ahead and what he had left behind [undone].h
Man would rather be a witness against himsel
Even though he may put up excuses
Move not [O Prophet] your tongue with it [revelation] to make haste with it
Its collection and recital does indeed rest on Us
So when We recite it, attentively follow its recitation
Then, indeed, it is for Us to make its meaning clear
Nay, you [mankind] would rather love the fleeting present
And neglect the Hereafter
Faces that day will be bright
Looking at their Lord expectantly
And faces that day will be despondent
Expecting a great disaster to befall them
Behold! When in pangs of death
And question raised, "Any magician [who could save him]?"
And he thought it was the time for parting
And the leg was put close to the [other] leg
To your Lord was the direction that day
And neither did he stand by the truth nor did he pray
And, on the other hand, he denied the Truth and turned his face away
And then he went back to his people boasting [telling them how `bravely' he denied the Truth]
[The Truth is drawing] nearer and nearer to you [O dying man]
To repeat, [the Truth is drawing] nearer and nearer to you [O dying man]!
Does man think that he will be left to fend for himself?
Was he not a tiny ovum fertilised by sperm emitted
Then he became a leech-like clinging clot of curdled blood; and He created him and set his shape right
Then He made from him pairs: male and female
Is not That One [the Creator] powerful enough to give life to the dead!?
