Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 183rd part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read Surah Al-Qiyama. Surah Al-Qiyama is the 75th Surah of the Holy Quran and is comprised of 40 verses. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1- I do call to witness the Resurrection Day;
2- And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit. (Eschew Evil).
3- Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?
4- Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers.
5- But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.
6- He questions: “When is the Day of Resurrection?”
7- At length, when the sight is dazed,
8- And the moon is burried in darkness.
9- And the sun and moon are joined together,-
10- That Day will Man say: “Where is the refuge?”
11- By no means! No place of safety!
12- Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.
13- That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.
14- Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
15- Even though he were to put up his excuse.
16- Move not thy tongue concerning the (Quran) to make haste therewith.
17- It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:
18- But when We have promulugated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated):
19- Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear):
20- Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
21- And leave alone the Hereafter.
22- Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brighness and beauty);-
23- Looking towards their Lord;
24- And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
25- In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them;
26- Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit),
27- And there will be a cry, “Who is a magician (to restore him)?”
28- And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;
29- And one leg will be joined with another:
30- That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
31- So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!-
32- But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away!
33- Then did he walk to his family in full conceit!
34- Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
35- Again, Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
36- Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?
37- Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
38- Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did ((Allah)) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.
39- And of him He made two sexes, male and female.
40- Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
May Allah Have mercy on us all. (Ameen)
