Chapter 75:
Al-Qiyamah — The Resurrection:

Revealed at Makkah: 2 sections; 40 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

75:1 Nay, I swear by the day of Resurrection!

75:2 Nay, I swear by the self-accusing spirit!

75:3 Does man think that We shall not gather his bones?

75:4 Yea, We are Powerful to make complete his whole make.

75:5 Nay, man desires to go on doing evil in front of him.

75:6 He asks: When is the day of Resurrection?

75:7 So when the sight is confused,

75:8 And the moon becomes dark,

75:9 And the sun and the moon are brought together —

75:10 Man will say on that day: Whither to flee?

75:11 No! There is no refuge!

75:12 With thy Lord on that day is the place of rest.

75:13 Man will that day be informed of what he sent before and what he put off.

75:14 Nay, man is evidence against himself,

75:15 Though he put up excuses.

75:16 Move not thy tongue therewith to make haste with it.

75:17 Surely on Us rests the collecting of it and the reciting of it.

75:18 So when We recite it, follow its recitation.

75:19 Again on Us rests the explaining of it.

75:20 Nay, but you love the present life,

75:21 And neglect the Hereafter.

75:22 (Some) faces that day will be bright,

75:23 Looking to their Lord.

75:24 And (other) faces that day will be gloomy,

75:25 Knowing that a great disaster will be made to befall them.

75:26 Nay, when it comes up to the throat,

75:27 And it is said: Who will ascend (with it)?

75:28 And he is sure that it is the parting,

75:29 And affliction is combined with affliction —

75:30 To thy Lord on that day is the driving.

75:31 So he accepted not the truth, nor prayed,

75:32 But denied and turned back,

75:33 Then he went to his people in haughtiness.

75:34 Nearer to thee and nearer,

75:35 Again, nearer to thee and nearer (is woe).

75:36 Does man think that he will be left aimless?

75:37 Was he not a small life-germ in sperm emitted?

75:38 Then he was a clot; so He created (him), then made (him) perfect.

75:39 Then He made of him two kinds, the male and the female.

75:40 Is not He Powerful to give life to the dead?
