84 THE RENDING (1 – 23)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

When heaven is rent asunder 5and gives ear to its Lord, and is fitly disposed; when earth is stretched out and casts forth what is in it, and voids itself, and gives ear to its Lord, and is fitly disposed!

O Man! Thou art labouring unto thy Lord laboriously, and thou shalt encounter Him. Then as for him who is given his book in his right hand, he shall surely receive an easy reckoning and he will return to his family joyfully. 10But as for him who is given his book behind his back, he shall call for destruction and he shall roast at a Blaze. He once lived among his family joyfully; he surely thought he would never revert. 15Yes indeed; his Lord had sight of him.

No! I swear by the twilight and the night and what it envelops and the moon when it is at the full, you shall surely ride stage after stage.

20Then what ails them, that they believe not, and when the Koran is recited to them they do not bow? Nay, but the unbelievers are crying lies, and God knows very well what they are secreting.
