Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah)
40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Shocker (Al-Qaare'ah) before The Backbiter (Al-Hummazah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ I swear by the Day of Resurrection (1) But nay! I call to witness the accusing voice of man's own conscience! (2) What, does the human think We shall never gather his bones? (3) Yes indeed; We have the power to remould even his finger-tips. (4) Rather, the human desires to continue in his immorality, (5) He asks, "When is the Day of Resurrection?" (6) But [on that Day,] when the eyesight is by fear confounded, (7) and the moon is eclipsed, (8) And the sun and the moon are brought together, (9) on that Day the human will ask: 'To (which place) shall I flee' (10) But nay: no refuge [for thee, O man]! (11) With your Lord alone will be the retreat on that day. (12) Upon that day man shall be told his former deeds and his latter; (13) Nay! Man will be a witness against himself [as his body parts (skin, hands, legs, etc.) will speak about his deeds]. (14) Although he may put forth his pleas. (15) [Prophet], do not move your tongue too fast in your attempt to learn this revelation: (16) We Ourself shall see to its collection and recital. (17) So when We have read it, you should thereupon follow what is read. (18) Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear): (19) Not [as you think, that you (mankind) will not be resurrected and recompensed for your deeds], but (you men) love the present life of this world, (20) and give no thought to the life to come [and to Judgment Day]! (21) On that Day there shall be radiant faces, (22) looking up to their Sustainer; (23) And how many faces on that Day will be woe-begone (24) certain of facing a great calamity. (25) Nay! When it comes up to the throat, (26) and it is said: 'Who is a healing chanter' (27) and he knows that it is the time of parting; (28) And one shank is entangled with the other shank. (29) That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord! (30)
