The Holy Qoran with English Translation

سورة القيامة MP3
1. بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful.
2. لَا أُقْسِمُ بِيَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ
I CALL TO WITNESS the Day of Resurrection,
3. وَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِالنَّفْسِ اللَّوَّامَةِ
And I call the reprehensive soul to witness:
4. أَيَحْسَبُ الْإِنسَانُ أَلَّن نَّجْمَعَ عِظَامَهُ
Does man think We shall not put his bones together?
5. بَلَىٰ قَادِرِينَ عَلَىٰ أَن نُّسَوِّيَ بَنَانَهُ
Surely We are able to reform even his finger-tips.
6. بَلْ يُرِيدُ الْإِنسَانُ لِيَفْجُرَ أَمَامَهُ
Yet man is sceptical of what is right before him.
7. يَسْأَلُ أَيَّانَ يَوْمُ الْقِيَامَةِ
He asks: "When will the Day of Resurrection be?"
8. فَإِذَا بَرِقَ الْبَصَرُ
Yet when the eyes are dazzled,
9. وَخَسَفَ الْقَمَرُ
The moon eclipsed,
10. وَجُمِعَ الشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ
And the sun and moon are conjoined,
11. يَقُولُ الْإِنسَانُ يَوْمَئِذٍ أَيْنَ الْمَفَرُّ
That day man will say: "Where can I find escape?"
12. كَلَّا لَا وَزَرَ
Never so, for there will be no escape.
13. إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْمُسْتَقَرُّ
With your Lord alone will be the retreat on that day.
14. يُنَبَّأُ الْإِنسَانُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِمَا قَدَّمَ وَأَخَّرَ
Then man will be told what he had sent ahead (of good) and what he had left behind.
15. بَلِ الْإِنسَانُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ بَصِيرَةٌ
In fact man is a witness against himself,
16. وَلَوْ أَلْقَىٰ مَعَاذِيرَهُ
Whatever the excuses he may offer.
17. لَا تُحَرِّكْ بِهِ لِسَانَكَ لِتَعْجَلَ بِهِ
Do not forestall (the revelation before its completion) by acting in haste.
18. إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا جَمْعَهُ وَقُرْآنَهُ
Surely its collection and recitation are Our responsibility.
19. فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ
So, as We recite it, follow its reading.
20. ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا بَيَانَهُ
The exposition of its meaning surely rests on Us.
21. كَلَّا بَلْ تُحِبُّونَ الْعَاجِلَةَ
But no. You love this transient life,
22. وَتَذَرُونَ الْآخِرَةَ
And neglect the Hereafter.
23. وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ نَّاضِرَةٌ
How many faces will be refulgent on that Day,
24. إِلَىٰ رَبِّهَا نَاظِرَةٌ
Waiting for their Lord.
25. وَوُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ بَاسِرَةٌ
And how many faces on that Day will be woe-begone
26. تَظُنُّ أَن يُفْعَلَ بِهَا فَاقِرَةٌ
Fearing that a great disaster is going to befall them.
27. كَلَّا إِذَا بَلَغَتِ التَّرَاقِيَ
Never so, for when life withdraws into the clavicula,
28. وَقِيلَ مَنْ ۜ رَاقٍ
And it is asked: "Is there any reciter of charms and amulets?"
29. وَظَنَّ أَنَّهُ الْفِرَاقُ
He will then realise it is the parting,
30. وَالْتَفَّتِ السَّاقُ بِالسَّاقِ
And anguish will be heaped upon anguish:
31. إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْمَسَاقُ
To your Lord then will be the driving.
32. فَلَا صَدَّقَ وَلَا صَلَّىٰ
For he neither believed nor prayed,
33. وَلَٰكِن كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلَّىٰ
But only disavowed and turned away;
34. ثُمَّ ذَهَبَ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ يَتَمَطَّىٰ
Then he strutted back to his people.
35. أَوْلَىٰ لَكَ فَأَوْلَىٰ
Alas the woe for you, alas!
36. ثُمَّ أَوْلَىٰ لَكَ فَأَوْلَىٰ
Alas, the woe for you!
37. أَيَحْسَبُ الْإِنسَانُ أَن يُتْرَكَ سُدًى
Does man think that he will be left alone to himself, free?
38. أَلَمْ يَكُ نُطْفَةً مِّن مَّنِيٍّ يُمْنَىٰ
Was he not an emitted drop of semen,
39. ثُمَّ كَانَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقَ فَسَوَّىٰ
Then formed into an embryo? Then He fashioned, shaped and proportioned
40. فَجَعَلَ مِنْهُ الزَّوْجَيْنِ الذَّكَرَ وَالْأُنثَىٰ
And assigned it sexes, male and female.
41. أَلَيْسَ ذَٰلِكَ بِقَادِرٍ عَلَىٰ أَن يُحْيِيَ الْمَوْتَىٰ
Cannot such as He bring the dead to life?
