Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the sky bursts open,
84:2 hearkening to its Lord as it is bound to do!
84:3 When the earth is flattened out
84:4 and disgorges what is inside it and empties out,
84:5 hearkening to its Lord as it is bound to do!
84:6 O Man! You are toiling laboriously towards your Lord but meet Him you will!
84:7 As for him who is given his Book in his right hand,
84:8 he will be given an easy reckoning
84:9 and return to his family joyfully.
84:10 But as for him who is given his Book behind his back,
84:11 he will cry out for destruction
84:12 but will be roasted in a Searing Blaze.
84:13 He used to be joyful in his family.
84:14 He thought that he was never going to return.
84:15 But in fact his Lord was always watching him!
84:16 No, I swear by the evening glow,
84:17 and the night and all it shrouds,
84:18 and the moon when it is full,
84:19 you will mount up stage by stage!
84:20 What is the matter with them that they have no iman
84:21 and, when the Qur´an is recited to them, do not prostrate?
84:22 In fact those who are kafir say that it is lies.
84:23 But Allah knows best what they are storing in their hearts.
84:24 Give them the news of a painful punishment —
84:25 except those who have iman and do right actions: they will have a wage which never fails.
