N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 WHEN THE sky is rent apart,
84:2 obeying her Lord in true submission;
84:3 when the earth expands
84:4 and casts out all that is within her and becomes empty,
84:5 obeying her Lord in true submission; then,
84:6 O man, who labour constantly to meet your Lord, shall you meet Him.
84:7 He that is given his book in his right hand
84:8 shall have a lenient reckoning,
84:9 and shall go back rejoicing to his people.
84:10 But he that is given his book behind his back
84:11 shall call down destruction on himself
84:12 and burn in the Conflagration;
84:13 for he lived rejoicing among his people
84:14 and thought he would never turn back.
84:15 Yes; but his Lord was ever watching him.
84:16 I swear by the glow of sunset;
84:17 by the night, and all that it envelops;
84:18 by the moon, in her full perfection:
84:19 that you shall march onwards from stage to stage.
84:20 Why then do they not believe,
84:21 or kneel down in prayer when the Koran is read to them?
84:22 The unbelievers indeed are in denial;
84:23 but God knows best the falsehoods they believe in.
84:24 Therefore proclaim to them a woeful scourge,
84:25 save those who believe and do good works; for theirs is an unfailing recompense.
