Surah 84. The Rending Asunder, Splitting Open
84:1. When the Sky is rent asunder,
84:2. And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);-
84:3. And when the Earth is flattened out,
84:4. And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,
84:5. And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full Reality).
84:6. O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.
84:7. Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,
84:8. Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,
84:9. And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!
84:10. But he who is given his Record behind his back,-
84:11. Soon will he cry for Perdition,
84:12. And he will enter a Blazing Fire.
84:13. Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!
84:14. Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!
84:15. Nay, nay! For his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!
84:16. So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;
84:17. The Night and its Homing;
84:18. And the Moon in her Fullness:
84:19. Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.
84:20. What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-
84:21. And when the Koran is read to them, they fall not prostrate,
84:22. But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).
84:23. But "I AM" has full Knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)
84:24. So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,
84:25. Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: for them is a Reward that will never fail.
