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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection. (1) Nay, I swear by the accusing soul (that this Scripture is true). (2) Do men think that We shall never be able to assemble their bones? (3) Yes, We are Able to put together in perfect order the tips of his fingers. (4) None the less man chooses to deny what lies ahead of him, (5) He asketh: when will the Day of Resurrection be? (6) So, when the sight shall be dazed, (7) and the moon is eclipsed, (8) And the sun and the moon will be united. (9) on that Day will man exclaim "Whither to flee?" (10) But nay: no refuge [for thee, O man]! (11) on that Day, to your Lord alone is the recourse. (12) Then man will be told what he had sent ahead (of good) and what he had left behind. (13) nay, man shall be a clear proof against himself, (14) And even if he presents all the excuses he has, none will be listened to. (15) MOVE NOT thy tongue in haste, [repeating the words of the revelation:] (16) Ours it is to gather it, and to recite it. (17) Thus, when We recite it, follow thou its wording [with all thy mind]: (18) Then Ours it is to explain it. (19) Nay, but ye do love the fleeting Now (20) and are heedless of the Everlasting Life. (21) That day will faces be resplendent, (22) looking towards their Lord; (23) and upon that day faces shall be scowling, (24) Expecting that there will be done to them [something] backbreaking. (25) No! When the soul has reached the collar bones (26) and it is said, 'Who is an enchanter?' (27) And he will realise that this is the parting. (28) And one leg will be joined with another: (29) upon that Day the driving shall be to your Lord. (30)
