Maulana Muhammad Ali rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the heaven bursts asunder,
84:2 And listens to its Lord and is made fit;
84:3 And when the earth is stretched,
84:4 And casts forth what is in it and becomes empty,
84:5 And listens to its Lord and is made fit.
84:6 O man, thou must strive a hard striving (to attain) to thy Lord, until thou meet Him.
84:7 Then as to him who is given his book in his right hand,
84:8 His account will be taken by an easy reckoning,
84:9 And he will go back to his people rejoicing.
84:10 And as to him who is given his book behind his back,
84:11 He will call for perdition,
84:12 And enter into burning Fire.
84:13 Surely he was (erstwhile) joyful among his people.
84:14 Surely he thought that he would never return (to Allah) --
84:15 Yea, surely his Lord is ever Seer of him.
84:16 But nay, I call to witness the sunset redness,
84:17 And the night and that which it drives on,
84:18 And the moon when it grows full,
84:19 That you shall certainly ascend to one state after another.
84:20 But what is the matter with them that they believe not?
84:21 And, when the Qur’an is recited to thee, they adore (him) not?
84:22 Nay, those who disbelieve give the lie --
84:23 And Allah knows best what they hide.
84:24 So announce to them a painful chastisement,
84:25 Except those who believe and do good -- for them is a reward that shall never be cut off.
