Sura Al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    75:1-4 Nay, I swear by the Day of Resurrection; nay, I swear by the accusing soul (that this Scripture is true). Thinks man that We shall not assemble his bones? Yes, verily. Yes, We are Able to restore his very fingers!

    75:5-12 But man would gladly deny what is before him. He asks: When will be this Day of Resurrection? But when sight is confounded, and the moon is eclipsed, and sun and moon are united, on that Day man will cry: Where to flee! Alas! No refuge! To your Lord is the recourse that Day.

    75:13-15 On that Day man is told the tale of that which he has sent before and left behind. Oh, but man is a telling witness against himself, although he tenders his excuses.

    75:16-19 Stir not your tongue herewith to hasten it. Lo! Upon Us (rests) the putting together thereof and the reading thereof. And when We read it, follow you the reading; then lo! Upon Us (rests) the explanation thereof.

    75:20-25 Nay, but you do love the fleeting now and neglect the Hereafter. That Day will faces be resplendent, looking toward their Lord; and that Day will other faces be despondent, you will know that some great disaster is about to fall on them.

    75:26-30 Nay, but when the life comes up to the throat, and men say: Where is the wizard (who can save him now)? And he knows that it is the parting; and agony is heaped on agony; to your Lord that Day will be the driving.

    75:31-35 For he neither trusted, nor prayed. But he denied and flouted. Then went he to his folk with glee. Nearer to you and nearer, again nearer to you and nearer (is the punishment).

    75:36-40 Thinks man that he is to be left aimless? Was he not a drop of fluid, which gushed forth? Then he became a clot; then (God) shaped and fashioned, and made of him a pair, the male and female. Is not He (Who does so) Able to bring the dead to life?
