Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah)
40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Shocker (Al-Qaare'ah) before The Backbiter (Al-Hummazah)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ I CALL TO WITNESS the Day of Resurrection, (1) And I swear by the reproaching soul [to the certainty of resurrection]. (2) What, does the human think We shall never gather his bones? (3) Indeed yes, We are able to shape his fingerstips yet again! (4) Yet man wants to deny what is ahead of him: (5) He asks, “When will be the Day of Resurrection?” (6) But [on that Day], when mortal sight is confounded, (7) And the moon will be eclipsed. (8) when the sun and moon are gathered together (9) people will say, "Is there anywhere to run away?" (10) But nay: no refuge [for thee, O man]! (11) With your Lord alone will be the retreat on that day. (12) On that day, people will be informed of all that they had done and all that they were supposed to do. (13) In fact, people are well-aware of their own soul (14) even though he may veil himself in excuses. (15) Move not your tongue concerning (the Quran, O Muhammad SAW) to make haste therewith. (16) for, behold, it is for Us to gather it [in thy heart,] and to cause it to be read [as it ought to be read]. (17) But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated): (18) The exposition of its meaning surely rests on Us. (19) Yet you love this hasty world (20) And leave the Hereafter. (21) Countenances on that Day shall be resplendent, (22) looking up to their Sustainer; (23) And on that Day there shall be scowling faces, (24) dreading some great affliction. (25) Nay, when (the soul) reaches to the collar bone (i.e. up to the throat in its exit), (26) and when it is asked: "Could any magician save him now?"; (27) and he realises that the hour of parting is come, (28) When legs are twisted around each other, (29) that will be the time to be driven to one's Lord. (30)
