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 Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ NAY! I call to witness the Day of Resurrection! (1) And I swear by the self-reproaching person (a believer). (2) What, does the human think We shall never gather his bones? (3) Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertips (4) Yet man wants to deny what is ahead of him: (5) He asketh: when will the Day of Resurrection be? (6) When the eye is bewildered, (7) And the moon will be eclipsed, (8) And the sun and moon will be joined together (by going one into the other or folded up or deprived of their light, etc.) (9) On that day man will cry: Whither to flee! (10) Alas! No refuge! (11) With your Lord alone will be the retreat that Day. (12) That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back. (13) In fact man is a witness against himself, (14) Whatever the excuses he may offer. (15) MOVE NOT thy tongue in haste, [repeating the words of the revelation:] (16) Surely on Us (devolves) the collecting of it and the reciting of it. (17) So, when We recite it, follow thou its recitation. (18) Then Ours it is to explain it. (19) Human beings certainly do not want to pay much attention to the Quran. In fact, they love the worldly life (20) And neglect the Hereafter. (21) On the Day of Judgment some faces will be bright, (22) and look forward to receiving mercy from their Lord. (23) And that day will other faces be despondent, (24) Knowing that there will be made to befall them some great calamity. (25) Never so, for when life withdraws into the clavicula, (26) And they will say, “Is there any one any magician?” (27) And he will realise that this is the parting. (28) And anguish will be heaped upon anguish: (29) upon that day unto thy Lord shall be the driving. (30)
