75:1  I do swear by the Day of Judgment!
75:2  And I do swear by the self-reproaching soul!
75:3  Do people think We cannot reassemble their bones?
75:4  Yes ˹indeed˺! We are ˹most˺ capable of restoring ˹even˺ their very fingertips.
75:5  Still people want to deny what is yet to come,
75:6  asking ˹mockingly˺, “When is this Day of Judgment?”
75:7  But when the sight is stunned,
75:8  and the moon is dimmed,
75:9  and the sun and the moon are brought together,
75:10  on that Day one will cry, “Where is the escape?”
75:11  But no! There will be no refuge.
75:12  On that Day all will end up before your Lord.
75:13  All will then be informed of what they have sent forth and left behind.
75:14  In fact, people will testify against their own souls,
75:15  despite the excuses they come up with.
75:16  Do not rush your tongue trying to memorize ˹a revelation of˺ the Quran.
75:17  It is certainly upon Us to ˹make you˺ memorize and recite it.
75:18  So once We have recited a revelation ˹through Gabriel˺, follow its recitation ˹closely˺.
75:19  Then it is surely upon Us to make it clear ˹to you˺.
75:20  But no! In fact, you love this fleeting world,
75:21  and neglect the Hereafter.
75:22  On that Day ˹some˺ faces will be bright,
75:23  looking at their Lord.
75:24  And ˹other˺ faces will be gloomy,
75:25  anticipating something devastating to befall them.
75:26  But no! ˹Beware of the day˺ when the soul reaches the collar bone ˹as it leaves˺,
75:27  and it will be said, “Is there any healer ˹who can save this life˺?”
75:28  And the dying person realizes it is ˹their˺ time to depart,
75:29  and ˹then˺ their feet are tied together ˹in a shroud˺.
75:30  On that day they will be driven to your Lord ˹alone˺.
75:31  This denier neither believed nor prayed,
75:32  but persisted in denial and turned away,
75:33  then went to their own people, walking boastfully.
75:34  Woe to you, and more woe!
75:35  Again, woe to you, and even more woe!
75:36  Do people think they will be left without purpose?
75:37  Were they not ˹once˺ a sperm-drop emitted?
75:38  Then they became a clinging clot ˹of blood˺, then He developed and perfected their form,
75:39  producing from it both sexes, male and female.
75:40  Is such ˹a Creator˺ unable to bring the dead back to life?
