Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the heaven was split open
84:2 and gave ear to its Lord as it will be justly disposed to do
84:3 and when the earth stretches out
84:4 and cast what is in it and voided itself
84:5 and gave ear to its Lord as it will be justly disposed to do,
84:6 O human being! Truly, thou art one who is laboring towards thy Lord laboriously and thou wilt be one who encounters Him.
84:7 And as for him who will be given his book in his right hand,
84:8 then, he will be made a reckoning, an easy reckoning,
84:9 and will turn about to his people as one who is joyous.
84:10 But for whoever will be given his book behind his back,
84:11 he will call for damnation
84:12 and roast in a blaze.
84:13 He had been one who is joyous with his people.
84:14 Truly, he thought he would never retreat.
84:15 Yea! Truly, his Lord had been seeing him.
84:16 So no! I swear an oath by the twilight
84:17 and by the night and whatever it enveloped
84:18 and by the moon when it was full
84:19 that you will, truly, ride plane after plane.
84:20 Then, what is for them who believe not
84:21 when the Quran was recited to them, they prostrate not themselves?‡
84:22 Nay! Those who were ungrateful deny,
84:23 but God is greater in knowledge of what they amass.
84:24 So give them good tidings of a painful punishment.
84:25 But those who believed and did as the ones in accord with morality, for them is compensation, that which is unfailing.
