Sura 75, Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah), Quran, Khalifa translation

Sura 75, Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah)

(from: Quran The Final Testament, by Rashad Khalifa, PhD.)

[75:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[75:1] I swear by the Day of Resurrection.

[75:2] And I swear by the blaming soul.

[75:3] Does the human being think that we will not reconstruct his bones?

[75:4] Yes indeed; we are able to reconstruct his finger tip.

[75:5] But the human being tends to believe only what he sees in front of him.

[75:6] He doubts the Day of Resurrection!

[75:7] Once the vision is sharpened.

[75:8] And the moon is eclipsed.

[75:9] And the sun and the moon crash into one another.

[75:10] The human being will say on that day, "Where is the escape?"

[75:11] Absolutely, there is no escape.

[75:12] To your Lord, on that day, is the final destiny.

[75:13] The human being will be informed, on that day, of everything he did to advance himself, and everything he did to regress himself.

[75:14] The human being will be his own judge.

[75:15] No excuses will be accepted.

    Muhammad Forbidden from Explaining the Quran

[75:16] Do not move your tongue to hasten it.

[75:17] It is we who will collect it into Quran.

[75:18] Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran.

[75:19] Then it is we who will explain it.

[75:20] Indeed, you love this fleeting life.

[75:21] While disregarding the Hereafter.

[75:22] Some faces, on that day, will be happy.

[75:23] Looking at their Lord.

[75:24] Other faces will be, on that day, miserable.

[75:25] Expecting the worst.

[75:26] Indeed, when (the soul) reaches the throat.

[75:27] And it is ordered: "Let go!"

[75:28] He knows it is the end.

[75:29] Each leg will lay motionless next to the other leg.

[75:30] To your Lord, on that day, is the summoning.

[75:31] For he observed neither the charity, nor the contact prayers (Salat).

[75:32] But he disbelieved and turned away.

[75:33] With his family, he acted arrogantly.

[75:34] You have deserved this.

[75:35] Indeed, you have deserved this.

[75:36] Does the human being think that he will go to nothing?

[75:37] Was he not a drop of ejected semen?

[75:38] Then He created an embryo out of it!

[75:39] He made it into male or female!

[75:40] Is He then unable to revive the dead?
