I swear by the Day of Resurrection
And I swear by the self-reproaching soul.
Does the human being think that We will not reassemble his bones?
Yes indeed. We are able even to reshape his fingertips.
Yet the human being wants to deny what lies ahead of him.
He asks, "When is this Day of Resurrection?"
When vision is dazzled,
the moon is eclipsed
and the sun and the moon are joined together,
on that Day, man will say, "Where is the escape?"
No indeed! There is no refuge.
Your Lord is the final destination on that Day.
On that Day the Human being will be informed of all deeds he put forward for this day and everything that should have been left behind.
Rather, the human being, will give evidence against himself,
in spite of any excuses he presents.
[Prophet], do not move your tongue attempting to rush your memorization of the Revelation.
Its collection and recitation are up to us.
So, when We recite it, follow its recitation,
it is then, up to Us, to make it all clear
But you love this brief life
and disregard the Hereafter.
There are faces on that Day that will be bright,
looking toward their Lord.
While other faces on that Day, will be gloomy with despair,
realizing that a backbreaking blow has befallen them.
But when the last breath has reached the throat
and It is said, "Who will heal him now?"
And he realizes that it is parting time,
when one leg is entwined with the other,
that Day the journey is to your Lord.
He neither believed, nor prayed,
but he denied and turned away.
Then he went to his people, full of himself and false pride.
Your demise is getting closer to you and closer,
yet closer and closer still.
Does the human being think that he [was created] to be forgotten?
Was he not the sperm of ejaculated semen that fertilized the ovum?
Then he became a clot. And [God] created and proportioned,
and made of him the two sexes, the male and the female.
Is not that [Creator] able to bring the dead to life?
