Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the heaven is rent asunde
84:2 and gives ear unto its Lord, and is dutiful
84:3 And when the earth is stretched ou
84:4 and casts forth what is in it, and is empty
84:5 and gives ear unto its Lord, and is dutiful
84:6 O man! verily, thou are toiling after thy Lord, toiling; wherefore shalt thou meet Him
84:7 And as for 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 family joyfully
84:10 But as for him who is given his book behind his back
84:11 he shall call out for destruction
84:12 but he shall broil in a blaze
84:13 Verily, he was amongst his family joyful
84:14 Verily, he thought that he should never return to God
84:15 Yea, verily, his Lord on him did look
84:16 I need not swear by the evening glow
84:17 Or by the night, and what it drives together
84:18 Or by the moon when it is at its full
84:19 Ye shall be surely transferred from state to state
84:20 What ails them that they do not believe
84:21 and, when the Koran is read to them, do not adore
84:22 Nay, those who misbelieve do say it is a lie
84:23 but God knows best the (malice) that they hide
84:24 So give them the glad tidings of grievous woe
84:25 save those who believe and act aright, for them is hire that is not grudged
