Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the sky is rent asunder,
84:2 obeying her Lord in true submission;
84:3 when the earth is stretched out
84:4 and casts forth all that is within her and becomes empty,
84:5 obeying her Lord in true submission!
84:6 O man! You have been toiling towards your Lord, and you shall meet Him.
84:7 He who is given his record in his right hand
84:8 will in time have a lenient reckoning,
84:9 and return rejoicing to his people.
84:10 But he who is given his record behind his back
84:11 will in time call down destruction upon himself
84:12 and will enter the fire of hell.
84:13 He lived joyfully among his people.
84:14 He surely thought he would never return.
84:15 Yes, indeed; his Lord was watching over him.
84:16 I swear by the twilight,
84:17 and by the night and what it envelops,
84:18 and by the moon in her full perfection,
84:19 that you shall certainly move onward, stage after stage.
84:20 Why then do they not accept the faith?
84:21 Or, when the Qur'ān is read to them, they do not fall down in prostration?
84:22 But the unbelievers persist in rejecting [the truth],
84:23 yet God knows very well what they are hiding
84:24 so give them the tidings of a grievous suffering,
84:25 except for those who believe and do good deeds; for theirs is and unfailing reward.
