Hamid S. Aziz - Sura: 84. Al-Inshiqaq - The Bursting Asunder

  1. When the heaven is rent asunder

  2. And gives ear unto its Lord, and is dutiful!

  3. And when the earth is stretched out

  4. And casts forth what is within it, and is emptied (or clean),

  5. And gives ear unto its Lord, and is dutiful!

  6. O man! Verily, you are toiling on towards your Lord, painfully toiling; wherefore shall you meet Him!

  7. And as for him who is given his record in his right hand,

  8. His account shall be taken with an easy reckoning;

  9. And he shall go back to his people rejoicing.

  10. But as for him who is given his book behind his back,

  11. He shall call out for destruction,

  12. But he shall broil in a blazing Fire!

  13. Verily, he was amongst his family joyful.

  14. Verily, he thought that he should never return to Allah.

  15. Nay, nay! Verily, his Lord did watch him!

  16. So I do call as witness the glow of sunset,

  17. Or the night, and its homing,

  18. Or the moon in her fullness,

  19. You shall surely travel from stage to stage!

  20. What ails them that they believe not?

  21. And, when the Quran is read to them, they fall not prostrate?

  22. On the contrary, the unbelievers reject it.

  23. But Allah knows best the (malice) that they hide.

  24. So announce to them the grievous woe!

  25. Save those who believe and work right. For them is an unfailing reward.
