Section 1

[Qiyamah 75:1] I swear by the Day of Resurrection.

[Qiyamah 75:2] And by oath of the soul that reproaches itself.

[Qiyamah 75:3] Does man assume that We will never assemble his bones?

[Qiyamah 75:4] Surely yes, why not? We can properly make all his phalanxes.

[Qiyamah 75:5] In fact man wishes to commit evil in front of Him!

[Qiyamah 75:6] He asks, “When will be the Day of Resurrection?”

[Qiyamah 75:7] So when the eyes will be blinded by light.

[Qiyamah 75:8] And the moon will be eclipsed.

[Qiyamah 75:9] And the sun and the moon will be united.

[Qiyamah 75:10] On that day man will cry out, “Where shall I flee?”

[Qiyamah 75:11] Never! There is no refuge!

[Qiyamah 75:12] On that day, the station is only towards your Lord.

[Qiyamah 75:13] On that day, man will be informed of all what he sent ahead and left behind.

[Qiyamah 75:14] In fact, man himself is keeping an eye on his state of affairs!

[Qiyamah 75:15] And even if he presents all the excuses he has, none will be listened to.

[Qiyamah 75:16] O dear Prophet (Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), do not cause your tongue to move along with the Qur’an in order to learn it faster.

[Qiyamah 75:17] Indeed assembling the Qur’an and reading it are upon Us.

[Qiyamah 75:18] So when We have read it, you should thereupon follow what is read.

[Qiyamah 75:19] Then indeed, to explain its details to you is upon Us.

[Qiyamah 75:20] None except you, O disbelievers – you love what you have, the fleeting one.

[Qiyamah 75:21] And you have forsaken the Hereafter.

[Qiyamah 75:22] On that day, some faces will shine with freshness.

[Qiyamah 75:23] Looking toward their Lord.

[Qiyamah 75:24] And on that day some faces will be ghastly.

[Qiyamah 75:25] Knowing that they will be subjected to a torment that breaks the backs.

[Qiyamah 75:26] Yes indeed, when life will reach up to the throat.

[Qiyamah 75:27] And they will say, “Is there any one – any magician?”

[Qiyamah 75:28] And he will realise that this is the parting.

[Qiyamah 75:29] And one shin will curl up with the other shin.

[Qiyamah 75:30] On that day, the herding will be only towards your Lord.

Section 2

[Qiyamah 75:31] Neither did he believe it to be true, nor did he offer the prayer.

[Qiyamah 75:32] But he denied and turned away.

[Qiyamah 75:33] Then he went back to his home in pride.

[Qiyamah 75:34] Your ruin has come close, still closer.

[Qiyamah 75:35] Again your ruin has come close, still closer.

[Qiyamah 75:36] Does man assume that he will be let loose?

[Qiyamah 75:37] Was he not just a drop of the semen that is discharged?

[Qiyamah 75:38] He then became a clot – so Allah created him, then made him proper.

[Qiyamah 75:39] So created from him a pair, the male and female.

[Qiyamah 75:40] So will He, Who has done all this, not be able to revive the dead?
