Al-Inshiqaq - The Sundering, Splitting Open - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 84:1 When the sky is rent asunder,

  3. 84:2 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-

  4. 84:3 And when the earth is flattened out,

  5. 84:4 And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,

  6. 84:5 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full reality).

  7. 84:6 O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.

  8. 84:7 Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,

  9. 84:8 Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,

  10. 84:9 And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!

  11. 84:10 But he who is given his Record behind his back,-

  12. 84:11 Soon will he cry for perdition,

  13. 84:12 And he will enter a Blazing Fire.

  14. 84:13 Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!

  15. 84:14 Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!

  16. 84:15 Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!

  17. 84:16 So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;

  18. 84:17 The Night and its Homing;

  19. 84:18 And the Moon in her fullness:

  20. 84:19 Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.

  21. 84:20 What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-

  22. 84:21 And when the Qur'an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,

  23. 84:22 But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).

  24. 84:23 But Allah has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)

  25. 84:24 So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,

  26. 84:25 Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a Reward that will never fail.
