فَلَا صَدَّقَ وَلَا صَلَّىٰ
And he [i.e., the disbeliever] had not believed, nor had he prayed.
وَلَٰكِن كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلَّىٰ
But [instead], he denied and turned away.
ثُمَّ ذَهَبَ إِلَىٰٓ أَهۡلِهِۦ يَتَمَطَّىٰٓ
And then he went to his people, swaggering [in pride].
أَوۡلَىٰ لَكَ فَأَوۡلَىٰ
Woe to you, and woe!
ثُمَّ أَوۡلَىٰ لَكَ فَأَوۡلَىٰٓ
Then woe to you, and woe!
أَيَحۡسَبُ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنُ أَن يُتۡرَكَ سُدًى
Does man think that he will be left neglected?
1- i.e., to no end, without responsibility, or without being returned to the Creator for judgement.
أَلَمۡ يَكُ نُطۡفَةٗ مِّن مَّنِيّٖ يُمۡنَىٰ
Had he not been a sperm from semen emitted?
ثُمَّ كَانَ عَلَقَةٗ فَخَلَقَ فَسَوَّىٰ
Then he was a clinging clot, and [AllŒh] created [his form] and proportioned [him]
فَجَعَلَ مِنۡهُ ٱلزَّوۡجَيۡنِ ٱلذَّكَرَ وَٱلۡأُنثَىٰٓ
And made of him two mates, the male and the female.
أَلَيۡسَ ذَٰلِكَ بِقَٰدِرٍ عَلَىٰٓ أَن يُحۡـِۧيَ ٱلۡمَوۡتَىٰ
Is not that [Creator] Able to give life to the dead?
