Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Cleaving, The Cleaving Asunder, Bursting Apart(al-Infitar)
82:1 When heaven is split open,
82:2 when the stars are scattered,
82:3 when the seas swarm over,
82:4 when the tombs are overthrown,
82:5 then a soul shall know its works, the former and the latter.
82:6 O Man! What deceived thee as to thy generous Lord
82:7 who created thee and shaped thee and wrought thee in symmetry
82:8 and composed thee after what form He would?
82:9 No indeed; but you cry lies to the Doom;
82:10 yet there are over you watchers
82:11 noble, writers
82:12 who know whatever you do.
82:13 Surely the pious shall be in bliss,
82:14 and the libertines shall be in a fiery furnace
82:15 roasting therein on the Day of Doom,
82:16 nor shall they ever be absent from it.
82:17 And what shall teach thee what is the Day of Doom?
82:18 Again, what shall teach thee what is the Day of Doom?
82:19 A day when no soul shall possess aught to succour another soul; that day the Command shall belong unto God.
