75: Al-Qiyamah (القيامة)

Audio Surah: AL-QIYAMAH

1:  Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection.

2:  Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul.

3:  Does man think that We shall not gather his bones?

4:  Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertips

5:  Nay! man desires to give the lie to what is before him.

6:  He asks: When is the day of resurrection?

7:  So when the sight becomes dazed,

8:  And the moon becomes dark,

9:  And the sun and the moon are brought together,

10:  Man shall say on that day: Whither to fly to?

11:  By no means! there shall be no place of refuge!

12:  With your Lord alone shall on that day be the place of rest.

13:  Man shall on that day be informed of what he sent before and (what he) put off.

14:  Nay! man is evidence against himself,

15:  Though he puts forth his excuses.

16:  Do not move your tongue with it to make haste with it,

17:  Surely on Us (devolves) the collecting of it and the reciting of it.

18:  Therefore when We have recited it, follow its recitation.

19:  Again on Us (devolves) the explaining of it.

20:  Nay! But you love the present life,

21:  And neglect the hereafter.

22:  (Some) faces on that day shall be bright,

23:  Looking to their Lord.

24:  And (other) faces on that day shall be gloomy,

25:  Knowing that there will be made to befall them some great calamity.

26:  Nay! When it comes up to the throat,

27:  And it is said: Who will be a magician?

28:  And he is sure that it is the (hour of) parting

29:  And affliction is combined with affliction;

30:  To your Lord on that day shall be the driving.

31:  So he did not accept the truth, nor did he pray,

32:  But called the truth a lie and turned back,

33:  Then he went to his followers, walking away in haughtiness.

34:  Nearer to you (is destruction) and nearer,

35:  Again (consider how) nearer to you and nearer.

36:  Does man think that he is to be left to wander without an aim?

37:  Was he not a small seed in the seminal elements,

38:  Then he was a clot of blood, so He created (him) then made (him) perfect.

39:  Then He made of him two kinds, the male and the female.

40:  Is not He able to give life to the dead?
