75-Day of Resurrection / Al-Qiyamah:

In God’s Name, whose Mercy is Great and Continuous:

(75:1)   I swear by the Day of Resurrection,

(75:2)   and by the soul full of regret for its actions.

(75:3)   Do you think I can’t gather your bones?

(75:4)   I can put you back together to the tips of your fingers and toes.

(75:5)   You turn away from the truth so that you can keep sinning.

(75:6)   You ask sarcastically, “When is the Day of Judgment coming?”

(75:7)   When the eyes are dazed,

(75:8)   When the moon is forever eclipsed,

(75:9)   When the sun and moon are together crushed,

(75:10) On that day you will say, “Where can I run?”

(75:11) No, there is no fortress to escape to.

(75:12) In front of Me is your final destination.

(75:13) On that day, people will be informed of the good and the bad that they were doing.

(75:14) Actually, they know exactly what they are doing,

(75:15) even when they give their rationalizations.

(75:16) Oh Muhammad, slow down when you recite this revelation.

(75:17) It is up to Me to collect it in your heart and to make it easy for recitation.

(75:18) When I am done teaching it to you, then recite it and follow what it tells you to do.

(75:19) Then it is up to Me to make it clear and simple without complication.

(75:20) No, people focus on their short term enjoyment

(75:21) and neglect to prepare for the Day of Judgment.

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

(75:23) looking at their Lord peacefully.

(75:24) Some faces on that day will be dark and gloomy,

(75:25) knowing that they are about to have a backbreaking calamity.

(75:26) No, when your soul reaches your throat,

(75:27) and the people around you say, “Who can help?”

(75:28) and you realize your time has come,

(75:29) and your legs are put one over the other,

(75:30) on that day your soul, to Me, will come.

(75:31) But you don’t believe or pray;

(75:32) you say this is a lie and turn away;

(75:33) then walk to your family in an arrogant way.

(75:34) You have been warned.

(75:35) Again, you have been warned.

(75:36) Do you think that I would neglect you? And let you do what you want to?

(75:37) Weren’t you once expelled fluid,

(75:38) then you looked like blood that had clotted, then you were molded and given your soul,

(75:39) then developed into a boy or a girl?

(75:40) I made you once. What makes you think I can’t do it again and bring you back to life on the Day of Resurrection?
