The Splitting Asunder


84. THE SPLITTING ASUNDER

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. 1. When the sky is split asunder, 2. and responds to its Fosterer, a duty incumbent on it. 3. And when the earth is stretched out, 4. and casts forth that which is in it and becomes empty, 5. and responds to its Fosterer, a duty incumbent on it. 6. O man! you are certainly labouring towards your Fosterer, with a labour, so you will meet Him. 7. So as for him who is given his record (of deeds) in his right hand, 8. he will be called to account, with an easy accountability, 9. and he will return happily to his class of people. 10. And as for him who is given his record (of deeds) behind his back, 11. he will call for (i.e. invoke) destruction (upon himself), 12. and he will enter the (hot) blaze. 13.He was certainly happy in his class of people (in the worldly life). 14. He certainly thought that he would never return. 15. Why not, his Fosterer was certainly seeing him. 16. So I do swear by the redness of the sunset, 17. and the night and that which it gathers, 18. and the moon when it is full. 19. You will definitely be carried from stage to stage. 20. So what is wrong with them that they do not believe? 21. And when the Quran is, recited to them, they do not prostrate.

22. No, those who do not believe, deny. 23. And Allah knows best what they hide. 24. So give them the news of the painful punishment, 25. except those who believe and do righteous works, for them there is an unfailing reward. (R 1)
