Quran Chapter 75


The Resurrection

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[75.1] Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection. [75.2] Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul. [75.3] Does man think that We shall not gather his bones? [75.4] Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertips [75.5] Nay! man desires to give the lie to what is before him. [75.6] He asks: When is the day of resurrection? [75.7] So when the sight becomes dazed, [75.8] And the moon becomes dark, [75.9] And the sun and the moon are brought together, [75.10] Man shall say on that day: Whither to fly to? [75.11] By no means! there shall be no place of refuge! [75.12] With your Lord alone shall on that.day be the place of rest. [75.13] Man shall on that day be informed of what he sent before and (what he) put off. [75.14] Nay! man is evidence against himself, [75.15] Though he puts forth his excuses.

[75.16] Do not move your tongue with it to make haste with it, [75.17] : Surely on Us (devolves) the collecting of it and the reciting of it. [75.18] Therefore when We have recited it, follow its recitation. [75.19] Again on Us (devolves) the explaining of it. [75.20] Nay! But you love the present life, [75.21] And neglect the hereafter. [75.22] (Some) faces on that day shall be bright, [75.23] Looking to their Lord. [75.24] And (other) faces on that day shall be gloomy, [75.25] Knowing that there will be made to befall them some great calamity. [75.26] Nay! When it comes up to the throat, [75.27] And it is said: Who will be a magician? [75.28] And he is sure that it is the (hour of) parting [75.29] And affliction is combined with affliction; [75.30] To your Lord on that day shall be the driving. [75.31] So he did not accept the truth, nor did he pray, [75.32] But called the truth a lie and turned back, [75.33] Then he went to his followers, walking away in haughtiness. [75.34] Nearer to you (is destruction) and nearer, [75.35] Again (consider how) nearer to you and nearer. [75.36] Does man think that he is to be left to wander without an aim? [75.37] Was he not a small seed in the seminal elements, [75.38] Then he was a clot of blood, so He created (him) then made (him) perfect. [75.39] Then He made of him two kinds, the male and the female. [75.40] Is not He able to give life to the dead?
