THE SUNDERING, SPLITTING OPEN, CHAPTER NO. 084
With the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
084.001 When the sky is rent asunder,
084.002 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-
084.003 And when the earth is flattened out,
084.004 And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,
084.005 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);-
(then will come Home the full reality).
084.006 O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.
084.007 Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,
084.008 Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,
084.009 And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!
084.010 But he who is given his Record behind his back,-
084.011 Soon will he cry for perdition,
084.012 And he will enter a Blazing Fire.
084.013 Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!
084.014 Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!
084.015 Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!
084.016 So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;
084.017 The Night and its Homing;
084.018 And the Moon in her fullness:
084.019 Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.
084.020 What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-
084.021 And when the Quran is read to them, they fall not prostrate,
084.022 But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).
084.023 But Allah has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)
084.024 So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,
084.025 Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a
Reward that will never fail.
