Surah 84

Al Inshiqâq
Surah 84. The Sundering, Splitting Open


84:1 When the sky is rent asunder,
Itha alssamao inshaqqat
84:2 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-
Waathinat lirabbiha wahuqqat
84:3 And when the earth is flattened out,
Wa-itha al-ardu muddat
84:4 And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,
Waalqat ma feeha watakhallat
84:5 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full reality).
Waathinat lirabbiha wahuqqat
84:6 O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.
Ya ayyuha al-insanuinnaka kadihun ila rabbika kadhanfamulaqeehi
84:7 Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,
Faama man ootiya kitabahubiyameenihi
84:8 Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,
Fasawfa yuhasabu hisabanyaseeran
84:9 And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!
Wayanqalibu ila ahlihi masrooran
84:10 But he who is given his Record behind his back,-
Waamma man ootiya kitabahu waraathahrihi
84:11 Soon will he cry for perdition,
Fasawfa yadAAoo thubooran
84:12 And he will enter a Blazing Fire.
Wayasla saAAeeran
84:13 Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!
Innahu kana fee ahlihi masrooran
84:14 Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!
Innahu thanna an lan yahoora
84:15 Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!
Bala inna rabbahu kana bihi baseeran
84:16 So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;
Fala oqsimu bialshshafaqi
84:17 The Night and its Homing;
Waallayli wama wasaqa
84:18 And the Moon in her fullness:
Waalqamari itha ittasaqa
84:19 Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.
Latarkabunna tabaqan AAan tabaqin
84:20 What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-
Fama lahum la yu/minoona
84:21 And when the Qur’an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,
Wa-itha quri-a AAalayhimu alqur-anula yasjudoona
84:22 But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).
Bali allatheena kafaroo yukaththiboona
84:23 But Allah has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)
WaAllahu aAAlamu bimayooAAoona
84:24 So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,
Fabashshirhum biAAathabin aleemin
84:25 Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a Reward that will never fail.
Illa allatheena amanoowaAAamiloo alssalihati lahum ajrun ghayrumamnoonin
