Al-Inshiqaaq - The Splitting Open

84:1 When the heaven is split asunder
84:2 And attentive to her Lord in fear,
84:3 And when the earth is spread out
84:4 And hath cast out all that was in her, and is empty
84:5 And attentive to her Lord in fear!
84:6 Thou, verily, O man, art working toward thy Lord a work which thou wilt meet (in His presence).
84:7 Then whoso is given his account in his right hand
84:8 He truly will receive an easy reckoning
84:9 And will return unto his folk in joy.
84:10 But whoso is given his account behind his back,
84:11 He surely will invoke destruction
84:12 And be thrown to scorching fire.
84:13 He verily lived joyous with his folk,
84:14 He verily deemed that he would never return (unto Allah).
84:15 Nay, but lo! his Lord is ever looking on him!
84:16 Oh, I swear by the afterglow of sunset,
84:17 And by the night and all that it enshroudeth,
84:18 And by the moon when she is at the full,
84:19 That ye shall journey on from plane to plane.
84:20 What aileth them, then, that they believe not
84:21 And, when the Qur'an is recited unto them, worship not (Allah)?
84:22 Nay, but those who disbelieve will deny;
84:23 And Allah knoweth best what they are hiding.
84:24 So give them tidings of a painful doom,
84:25 Save those who believe and do good works, for theirs is a reward unfailing.
