75 THE RESURRECTION (1 – 25)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

No! I swear by the Day of Resurrection. No! I swear by the reproachful soul. What, does man reckon We shall not gather his bones? Yes indeed; We are able to shape again his fingers. 5Nay, but man desires to continue on as a libertine, asking, ‘When shall be the Day of Resurrection?’

But when the sight is dazed and the moon is eclipsed, and the sun and moon are brought together, 10upon that day man shall say, ‘Whither to flee?’ No indeed; not a refuge! Upon that day the recourse shall be to thy Lord. Upon that day man shall be told his former deeds and his latter; nay, man shall be a clear proof against himself, 15even though he offer his excuses.

Move not thy tongue with it to hasten it; Ours it is to gather it, and to recite it. So, when We recite it, follow thou its recitation. Then Ours it is to explain it.

20No indeed; but you love the hasty world, and leave behind the Hereafter. Upon that day faces shall be radiant, gazing upon their Lord; and upon that day faces shall be scowling, 25thou mightest think the Calamity has been wreaked on them.
