Qur'an - Translation
Rending Asunder

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[84.1] When the heaven bursts asunder,

[84.2] And obeys its Lord and it must.

[84.3] And when the earth is stretched,

[84.4] And casts forth what is in it and becomes empty,

[84.5] And obeys its Lord and it must.

[84.6] O man! surely you must strive (to attain) to your Lord, a hard striving until you meet Him.

[84.7] Then as to him who is given his book in his right hand,

[84.8] He shall be reckoned with by an easy reckoning,

[84.9] And he shall go back to his people joyful.

[84.10] And as to him who is given his book behind his back,

[84.11] He shall call for perdition,

[84.12] And enter into burning fire.

[84.13] Surely he was (erstwhile) joyful among his followers.

[84.14] Surely he thought that he would never return.

[84.15] Yea! surely his Lord does ever see him.

[84.16] But nay! I swear by the sunset redness,

[84.17] And the night and that which it drives on,

[84.18] And the moon when it grows full,

[84.19] That you shall most certainly enter one state after another.

[84.20] But what is the matter with them that they do not believe,

[84.21] And when the Qur’an is recited to them they do not make obeisance?

[84.22] Nay! those who disbelieve give the lie to the truth.

[84.23] And Allah knows best what they hide,

[84.24] So announce to them a painful punishment

[84.25] Except those who believe and do good; for them is a reward that shall never be cut off.
