In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّ‌حْمَـٰنِ الرَّ‌حِيمِ
I swear by the Day of Resurrection! (1) لا أُقسِمُ بِيَومِ القِيامَةِ(١)
And I swear by the self-blaming soul! (2) وَلا أُقسِمُ بِالنَّفسِ اللَّوّامَةِ(٢)
Does man suppose that We shall not put together his bones? (3) أَيَحسَبُ الإِنسانُ أَلَّن نَجمَعَ عِظامَهُ(٣)
Yes indeed, We are able to proportion [even] his fingertips! (4) بَلىٰ قادِرينَ عَلىٰ أَن نُسَوِّيَ بَنانَهُ(٤)
Rather man desires to go on living viciously. (5) بَل يُريدُ الإِنسانُ لِيَفجُرَ أَمامَهُ(٥)
He asks, ‘When is this day of resurrection?!’ (6) يَسأَلُ أَيّانَ يَومُ القِيامَةِ(٦)
But when the eyes are dazzled, (7) فَإِذا بَرِقَ البَصَرُ(٧)
and the moon is eclipsed, (8) وَخَسَفَ القَمَرُ(٨)
and the sun and the moon are brought together, (9) وَجُمِعَ الشَّمسُ وَالقَمَرُ(٩)
that day man will say,

‘Where is the escape?’ (10)

يَقولُ الإِنسانُ يَومَئِذٍ أَينَ المَفَرُّ(١٠)
No indeed! There is no refuge! (11) كَلّا لا وَزَرَ(١١)
That day the abode will be toward your Lord. (12) إِلىٰ رَبِّكَ يَومَئِذٍ المُستَقَرُّ(١٢)
That day man will be informed about what he has sent ahead and left behind. (13) يُنَبَّأُ الإِنسانُ يَومَئِذٍ بِما قَدَّمَ وَأَخَّرَ(١٣)
Rather man is a witness to himself, (14) بَلِ الإِنسانُ عَلىٰ نَفسِهِ بَصيرَةٌ(١٤)
though he should offer his excuses. (15) وَلَو أَلقىٰ مَعاذيرَهُ(١٥)
Do not move your tongue with it to hasten it. (16) لا تُحَرِّك بِهِ لِسانَكَ لِتَعجَلَ بِهِ(١٦)
Indeed it is up to Us to put it together and to recite it. (17) إِنَّ عَلَينا جَمعَهُ وَقُرآنَهُ(١٧)
And when We have recited it, follow its recitation. (18) فَإِذا قَرَأناهُ فَاتَّبِع قُرآنَهُ(١٨)
Then, its exposition indeed [also] lies with Us. (19) ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَينا بَيانَهُ(١٩)
No Indeed! Rather you love this transitory life (20) كَلّا بَل تُحِبّونَ العاجِلَةَ(٢٠)
and forsake the Hereafter. (21) وَتَذَرونَ الآخِرَةَ(٢١)
Some faces will be fresh on that day, (22) وُجوهٌ يَومَئِذٍ ناضِرَةٌ(٢٢)
looking at their Lord, (23) إِلىٰ رَبِّها ناظِرَةٌ(٢٣)
and some faces will be scowling on that day, (24) وَوُجوهٌ يَومَئِذٍ باسِرَةٌ(٢٤)
knowing that they will be dealt out a punishment breaking the spine. (25) تَظُنُّ أَن يُفعَلَ بِها فاقِرَةٌ(٢٥)
No indeed! When the soul reaches up to the collar bones, (26) كَلّا إِذا بَلَغَتِ التَّراقِيَ(٢٦)
and it is said, ‘Who will take him up?’[1] (27) وَقيلَ مَن ۜ راقٍ(٢٧)
and he knows that it is the [time of] parting, (28) وَظَنَّ أَنَّهُ الفِراقُ(٢٨)
and each shank clasps the other shank,[2] (29) وَالتَفَّتِ السّاقُ بِالسّاقِ(٢٩)
that day he shall be driven toward your Lord. (30) إِلىٰ رَبِّكَ يَومَئِذٍ المَساقُ(٣٠)
He neither confirmed [the truth], nor prayed, (31) فَلا صَدَّقَ وَلا صَلّىٰ(٣١)
but denied [it] and turned away, (32) وَلٰكِن كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلّىٰ(٣٢)
and went swaggering to his family. (33) ثُمَّ ذَهَبَ إِلىٰ أَهلِهِ يَتَمَطّىٰ(٣٣)
So woe to you! Woe to you! (34) أَولىٰ لَكَ فَأَولىٰ(٣٤)
Again, woe to you! Woe to you! (35) ثُمَّ أَولىٰ لَكَ فَأَولىٰ(٣٥)
Does man suppose that he would be abandoned to futility? (36) أَيَحسَبُ الإِنسانُ أَن يُترَكَ سُدًى(٣٦)
Was he not a drop of emitted semen? (37) أَلَم يَكُ نُطفَةً مِن مَنِيٍّ يُمنىٰ(٣٧)
Then he became a clinging mass; then He created [him] and proportioned [him], (38) ثُمَّ كانَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقَ فَسَوّىٰ(٣٨)
and made of him the two sexes, the male and the female. (39) فَجَعَلَ مِنهُ الزَّوجَينِ الذَّكَرَ وَالأُنثىٰ(٣٩)
Is not such a one able to revive the dead?'[3] (40) أَلَيسَ ذٰلِكَ بِقادِرٍ عَلىٰ أَن يُحيِيَ المَوتىٰ(٤٠)

Notes

  1. That is, by the angels of mercy and the angels of wrath present at the side of the dying person, as to which of them will take charge of him. Or those who are present by the side of the dying person say, ‘Where is the medicine man?’
  2. An idiom suggesting a time of great hardship, or, metaphorically, death throes.
