John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 WHEN the Heaven shall have SPLIT ASUNDE
84:2 And duteously obeyed its Lord
84:3 And when Earth shall have been stretched out as a plain
84:4 And shall have cast forth what was in her and become empty
84:5 And duteously obeyed its Lord
84:6 Then verily, O man, who desirest to reach thy Lord, shalt thou meet him
84:7 And he into whose right hand his Book shall be given
84:8 Shall be reckoned with in an easy reckoning
84:9 And shall turn, rejoicing, to his kindred
84:10 But he whose Book shall be given him behind his bac
84:11 Shall invoke destruction
84:12 But in the fire shall he burn
84:13 For that he lived joyously among his kindred
84:14 Without a thought that he should return to God
84:15 Yea, but his Lord beheld him
84:16 It needs not therefore that I swear by the sunset redness
84:17 And by the night and its gatherings
84:18 And by the moon when at her full
84:19 That from state to state shall ye be surely carried onward
84:20 What then hath come to them that they believe not
84:21 And that when the Koran is recited to them they adore not
84:22 Yea, the unbelievers treat it as a lie
84:23 But God knoweth their secret hatreds
84:24 Let their only tidings be those of painful punishment
84:25 Save to those who believe and do the things that be right. An unfailing recompense shall be theirs
