84:1  WHEN the Heaven shall have SPLIT ASUNDE
84:2  And duteously obeyed its Lord
84:3  And when Earth shall have been stretched out as a plain
84:4  And shall have cast forth what was in her and become empty
84:5  And duteously obeyed its Lord
84:6  Then verily, O man, who desirest to reach thy Lord, shalt thou meet him
84:7  And he into whose right hand his Book shall be given
84:8  Shall be reckoned with in an easy reckoning
84:9  And shall turn, rejoicing, to his kindred
84:10  But he whose Book shall be given him behind his bac
84:11  Shall invoke destruction
84:12  But in the fire shall he burn
84:13  For that he lived joyously among his kindred
84:14  Without a thought that he should return to God
84:15  Yea, but his Lord beheld him
84:16  It needs not therefore that I swear by the sunset redness
84:17  And by the night and its gatherings
84:18  And by the moon when at her full
84:19  That from state to state shall ye be surely carried onward
84:20  What then hath come to them that they believe not
84:21  And that when the Koran is recited to them they adore not
84:22  Yea, the unbelievers treat it as a lie
84:23  But God knoweth their secret hatreds
84:24  Let their only tidings be those of painful punishment
84:25  Save to those who believe and do the things that be right. An unfailing recompense shall be theirs
