* | quran | * | 75. al-qiyamah. the resurrection      <   > 

1.  *     I swear by the Day of Resurrection,[1]
2.  *     and I swear by the self reproaching soul![2]
3.  *     Does man think that We shall not be able to put his bones together?[3]
4.  *     Why not? We  are able to put together, in perfect order, the very tips of his fingers.[4]
5.  *     But man  wishes to keep on doing evil in the future as well.[5]
6.  *     He questions: "When will this  Day of Resurrection be?"[6]
7.  *     Well, it will come when the sight shall be dazed,[7]
8.  *     the  moon will be eclipsed,[8]
9.  *     and the sun and the moon will be brought together[9]
10.  *     - on  that Day man will ask: "Is there any way to escape?"[10]
11.  *     Nay! There will be no  refuge.[11]
12.  *     On that Day, the refuge will only be towards your Lord.[12]
13.  *     On that Day  man shall be told about all his deeds, from the first to the last.[13]
14.  *     Indeed, man shall  bear witness against himself,[14]
15.  *     even though he shall plead with excuses.[15]
16.  *     O Prophet, do not move your tongue too fast to memorize this revelation,[16]
17.  *     It is  Our responsibility to collect it in your memory, and make you recite it[17]
18.  *     and when it  is recited, to make you follow it,[18]
19.  *     and then it is Our responsibility to explain it.[19]
20.  *     Nay,  the fact is that you people love this fleeting life[20]
21.  *     and are heedless to the  Hereafter.[21]
22.  *     On that Day, some faces shall be bright,[22]
23.  *     looking towards their  Lord.[23]
24.  *     And on that Day some faces shall be gloomy,[24]
25.  *     thinking that some  backbreaking calamity is about to be inflicted on them.[25]
26.  *     Nay, when a manís soul is  about to leave and reaches to the throat,[26]
27.  *     and those around him cry: "Is there any  enchanter to help?"[27]
28.  *     Then man will conclude that it was the time of departure from  this world.[28]
29.  *     while one leg will twist around the other leg (agony will heap on  agony);[29]
30.  *     that will be the Day of driving towards your Lord.[30]
31.  *     But in this life he neither believed, nor offered Salah (prayed);[31]
32.  *     but on the contrary  he denied the truth and turned away.[32]
33.  *     Then he went to his kinfolk elated with  pride.[33]
34.  *     Woe to you, O man! Woe to you.[34]
35.  *     Again woe to you, O man! Woe to  you.[35]
36.  *     Does man think that he will be left without any purpose?[36]
37.  *     Was he not  once a drop of emitted semen?[37]
38.  *     Then he became a leechlike mass, then Allah  created him and fashioned him in due proportion,[38]
39.  *     and made him either of the two  sexes, male and female.[39]
40.  *     Has He not then the power to bring the dead to life?[40]
