T.B.Irving rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the sky will split open
84:2 and listen to its Lord as it ought to,
84:3 suddenly the earth will flatten out,
84:4 and throw up whatever it contains, and fall back empty;
84:5 and (also) listen to its Lord as it ought to!
84:6 Everyman, you are toiling constantly for your Lord, and you will meet Him!
84:7 Anyone who is given his book in his right hand
84:8 will be called to account with an easy reckoning,
84:9 and return joyfully to his family;
84:10 while anyone who is given his book behind his back
84:11 will appeal to be blotted out
84:12 and will roast in the Blaze.
84:13 He used to be happy with his own people;
84:14 he supposed he would never revert [to God].
84:15 Nevertheless his Lord had still been Observing him!
84:16 So I swear by the gloaming,
84:17 and night and whatever it enshrouds,
84:18 and the moon when it blossoms full,
84:19 you shall ride along stage by stage.
84:20 What is wrong with them that they do not believe?
84:21 When the Quran is read to them, why do they not bow down on their knees?
84:22 Instead, those who disbelieve keep on rejecting
84:23 while God is quite Aware of how they are holding back.
84:24 Give them news of painful torment,
84:25 except for those who believe and perform honorable deeds; they will have payment which will never be withheld.
