Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah)
40 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Shocker (Al-Qaare'ah) before The Backbiter (Al-Hummazah)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ NAY! I call to witness the Day of Resurrection! (1) And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit: (Eschew Evil). (2) Does man think that We cannot [resurrect him and] bring his bones together again? (3) Indeed, We have the power to restore his very finger tips! (4) None the less man chooses to deny what lies ahead of him, (5) 'When will the Day of Resurrection be' he asks, (6) When the sight is dazed, (7) And the moon becomes dark, (8) when the sun and the moon are brought together, (9) on that Day the human will ask: 'To (which place) shall I flee' (10) Certainly not! There will be no place of refuge. (11) With your Lord alone will be the retreat that Day. (12) On that day man is told the tale of that which he hath sent before and left behind. (13) Nay! Man will be a witness against himself [as his body parts (skin, hands, legs, etc.) will speak about his deeds]. (14) in spite of all the excuses he may offer. (15) Do not move your tongue with it to make haste with it, (16) Ours it is to gather it, and to recite it. (17) When We recite it, follow its recitation. (18) Then Ours it is to explain it. (19) Nay! But you love the present life, (20) And leave the Hereafter. (21) Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);- (22) Looking toward their Lord; (23) And (other) faces on that day shall be gloomy, (24) dreading some great affliction. (25) Some people, certainly, do not believe in it, but when a person's soul reaches up to his throat (26) and it is said: 'Who is a healing chanter' (27) And he (the dying person) will conclude that it was (the time) of departing (death); (28) when his legs are brought together [when affliction is combined with affliction]; (29) at that time towards thy Sustainer does he feel impelled to turn! (30)
