We can restore his very fingers
Absurdity 75:1-5

1Nay, I swear by the Day of Resurrection;

2Nay, I swear by the accusing soul (that this Scripture is true).

No, I swear by resurrection day.

No, I swear by the accusing soul that this scripture is true.

3Thinketh man that We shall not assemble his bones?

4Yea, verily. We are Able to restore his very fingers!

5 But man would fain deny what is before him.

Do people think we can't assemble their bones?

Heck. We can assemble their very fingers!

When the sun and the moon are united
AbsurdityScience 75:6-19

6He asketh: When will be this Day of Resurrection?

7 But when sight is confounded

They ask, "When will be this resurrection day?"

8 And the moon is eclipsed

9And sun and moon are united,

10 On that day man will cry: Whither to flee!

11 Alas! No refuge!

12 Unto thy Lord is the recourse that day.

13 On that day man is told the tale of that which he hath sent before and left behind.

14 Oh, but man is a telling witness against himself,

15 Although he tender his excuses.

16 Stir not thy tongue herewith to hasten it.

17 Lo! upon Us (resteth) the putting together thereof and the reading thereof.

18 And when We read it, follow thou the reading;

19 Then lo! upon Us (resteth) the explanation thereof.

It'll be when the moon is eclipsed,

and the sun and moon are united.

Where is the wizard who can save him?
AbsurdityInjusticeCruelty 75:20-

20 Nay, but ye do love the fleeting Now

21And neglect the Hereafter.

22 That day will faces be resplendent,

23 Looking toward their Lord;

You love the now and neglect the hereafter.

24 And that day will other faces be despondent,

25Thou wilt know that some great disaster is about to fall on them.

26 Nay, but when the life cometh up to the throat

On that day, faces will be despondent,

knowing that some great disaster is about to fall on them.

27 And men say: Where is the wizard (who can save him now)?

28 And he knoweth that it is the parting;

They'll say,

Where is the wizard who can save us?

29And agony is heaped on agony;

30 Unto thy Lord that day will be the driving.

Agony will be heaped on agony.

Your Lord will be doing the driving.

31 For he neither trusted, nor prayed.

32 But he denied and flouted.

33 Then went he to his folk with glee.

Those who neither trusted nor prayed,

but denied and flouted.

35 Again nearer unto thee and nearer (is the doom).

36 Thinketh man that he is to be left aimless?

37 Was he not a drop of fluid which gushed forth?

38 Then he became a clot; then (Allah) shaped and fashioned

39 And made of him a pair, the male and female.

Nearer and nearer to them is the doom.

40Is not He (Who doeth so) Able to bring the dead to life?

Is he able to bring the dead to life?
