When the sky is cleft asunder,
when the stars are scattered,
when the oceans are made to explode,
when the graves are hurled about,
each soul shall know its earlier actions and its later ones.
O man, what has lured you away from your gracious Lord
who created and moulded you and gave you an upright form?
He can give you whatever shape He wills.
Shun it! But you deny the Last Judgement.
Yet there are guardians watching over you,
who know all that you do.
Surely the righteous shall be in bliss,
while the wicked shall be in a blazing fire,
which they shall enter on the Day of Judgement;
nor shall they ever be absent from it.
Would that you knew what the Day of Judgement is!
Oh, would that you knew what the Day of Judgement is!
It is the day when no soul can be of any help to any other soul; for on that day all sovereignty is God's alone.
