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
۞ NAY! I call to witness the Day of Resurrection! (1) Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul. (2) Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones? (3) Yes, We are Able to put together in perfect order the tips of his fingers. (4) Aye! man desireth that he may sin before him. (5) He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?" (6) At length, when the sight is dazed, (7) And the moon is buried in darkness. (8) and the sun and the moon are brought together, (9) upon that day man shall say, 'Whither to flee?' (10) Alas! No refuge! (11) unto thy Lord that Day is the recourse. (12) To man will be declared on that Day that which he hath sent on 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) Even if he presents his excuses. (15) MOVE NOT thy tongue in haste, [repeating the words of the revelation:] (16) We shall be responsible for its collection and its recitation. (17) So, when We recite it, follow thou its recitation. (18) Then lo! upon Us (resteth) the explanation thereof. (19) But no. You love this transient life, (20) And leave alone the Hereafter. (21) [Some] faces, that Day, will be radiant, (22) looking towards their Lord; (23) and some faces will on that Day be overcast with despair, (24) Expecting that there will be done to them [something] backbreaking. (25) Nay! When it comes up to the throat, (26) And men say: Where is the wizard (who can save him now)? (27) He will then realise it is the parting, (28) and when leg is intertwined with leg, (29) That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord! (30)
