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
۞ I CALL TO WITNESS the Day of Resurrection, (1) And I call the reprehensive soul to witness: (2) Does man think that We cannot [resurrect him and] bring his bones together again? (3) Indeed yes, We are able to shape his fingerstips yet again! (4) In fact man wishes to commit evil in front of Him! (5) he asks, "When is this Day of Resurrection to be?" (6) So when the sight becomes dazed, (7) The moon eclipsed, (8) And the sun and the moon are joined, (9) on that Day will man exclaim "Whither to flee?" (10) No, there is no refuge. (11) For on that Day the refuge shall be to your Lord. (12) Man shall on that day be informed of what he sent before and (what he) put off. (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 with it to hasten it; (16) Surely on Us (devolves) the collecting of it and the reciting of it. (17) When We have recited it, follow its words attentively; (18) We shall be responsible for its explanation. (19) No! But you love the immediate (20) And you have forsaken the Hereafter. (21) Some faces that Day shall be Nadirah (shining and radiant). (22) looking up to their Sustainer; (23) And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal, (24) Knowing that they will be subjected to a torment that breaks the backs. (25) No! When the soul has reached the collar bones (26) and it is said, 'Who is an enchanter?' (27) and he realises that the hour of parting is come, (28) and leg is intertwined with leg, (29) at that time towards thy Sustainer does he feel impelled to turn! (30)
