84:1  WHEN THE SKY is split asunder
84:2  obeying its Sustainer, as in truth it must
84:3  and when the earth is leveled
84:4  and casts forth whatever is in it, and becomes utterly void
84:5  obeying its Sustainer, as in truth it must -
84:6  [then,] O man - thou [that] hast, verily, been toiling towards thy Sustainer in painful toil - then shalt thou meet Him
84:7  And as for him whose record shall be placed in his right hand
84:8  he will in time be called to account with an easy accounting
84:9  and will [be able to] turn joyfully to those of his own kind
84:10  But as for him whose record shall be given to him behind his back
84:11  he will in time pray for utter destruction
84:12  but he will enter the blazing flame
84:13  Behold, [in his earthly life] he lived joyfully among people of his own kin
84:14  for, behold, he never thought that he would have to return [to God]
84:15  Yea indeed! His Sustainer did see all that was in him
84:16  BUT NAY! I call to witness the sunset's [fleeting] afterglow
84:17  and the night, and what it [step by step] unfolds
84:18  and the moon, as it grows to its fullness
84:19  [even thus, O men,] are you bound to move; onward from stage to stage
84:20  What, then, is amiss with them that they will not believe [in a life to come]
84:21  and [that], when the Qur’an is read unto them, they do not fall down in prostration
84:22  Nay, but they who are bent on denying the truth give the lie [to this divine writ]
84:23  Yet God has full knowledge of what they conceal [in their hearts]
84:24  Hence, give them the tiding of grievous suffering [in the life to come] –
84:25  unless it be such [of them] as [repent, and] attain to faith, and do good works: for theirs shall be a reward unending!
