Does man think that We will not assemble his bones?

75:4 بَلَىٰ قَادِرِينَ عَلَىٰ أَنْ نُسَوِّيَ بَنَانَهُ

Yes. [We are] Able [even] to proportion his fingertips.

75:5 بَلْ يُرِيدُ الْإِنْسَانُ لِيَفْجُرَ أَمَامَهُ

Rather, man, against himself, will be a witness,

75:15 وَلَوْ أَلْقَىٰ مَعَاذِيرَهُ

Even if he presents his excuses.

75:16 لَا تُحَرِّكْ بِهِ لِسَانَكَ لِتَعْجَلَ بِهِ

Move not your tongue with it, [O Muhammad], to hasten with recitation of the Qur’an.

75:17 إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا جَمْعَهُ وَقُرْآنَهُ

Indeed, upon Us is its collection [in your heart] and [to make possible] its recitation.

[Some] faces, that Day, will be radiant,

75:23 إِلَىٰ رَبِّهَا نَاظِرَةٌ

Looking at their Lord.

And [some] faces, that Day, will be contorted,

75:25 تَظُنُّ أَنْ يُفْعَلَ بِهَا فَاقِرَةٌ

Expecting that there will be done to them [something] backbreaking.

75:26 كَلَّا إِذَا بَلَغَتِ التَّرَاقِيَ

No! When the soul has reached the collar bones

75:27 وَقِيلَ مَنْ ۜ رَاقٍ

75:28 وَظَنَّ أَنَّهُ الْفِرَاقُ

And the dying one is certain that it is the [time of] separation

75:29 وَالْتَفَّتِ السَّاقُ بِالسَّاقِ

And the leg is wound about the leg,

75:30 إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْمَسَاقُ

To your Lord, that Day, will be the procession.

Woe to you, and woe!

75:35 ثُمَّ أَوْلَىٰ لَكَ فَأَوْلَىٰ

Then woe to you, and woe!

75:36 أَيَحْسَبُ الْإِنْسَانُ أَنْ يُتْرَكَ سُدًى

Does man think that he will be left neglected?

75:37 أَلَمْ يَكُ نُطْفَةً مِنْ مَنِيٍّ يُمْنَىٰ

Had he not been a sperm from semen emitted?

75:38 ثُمَّ كَانَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقَ فَسَوَّىٰ
