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 swear by the Day of Resurrection. (1) And I swear by the self-reproaching soul. (2) Do men think that We shall never be able to assemble their bones? (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) He asks, "When will be the Day of Judgment?" (6) But [on that Day,] when the eyesight is by fear confounded, (7) and the moon is eclipsed, (8) And sun and moon are united, (9) That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?" (10) By no means! there shall be no place of refuge! (11) Upon that day the recourse shall be to thy Lord. (12) On that Day will man be apprised of his deeds, both the earlier and the later. (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) Do not move your tongue with it to make haste with it, (16) Verily upon us is the collecting thereof and the reciting thereof. (17) And when We read it, follow thou the reading; (18) Then Ours it is to explain it. (19) NAY, but [most of] you love this fleeting life, (20) And leave the Hereafter. (21) Some faces on that Day will be fresh and resplendent, (22) Looking towards their Lord; (23) And that day will other faces be despondent, (24) Thinking that some calamity was about to fall on them; (25) Never so, for when life withdraws into the clavicula, (26) And they will say, “Is there any one any magician?” (27) and he realises that the hour of parting is come, (28) And leg will be joined with another leg (shrouded) (29) at that time towards thy Sustainer does he feel impelled to turn! (30)
