George Sale rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the heaven shall be rent in sunder
84:2 and shall obey its Lord, and shall be capable thereof
84:3 and when the earth shall be stretched out
84:4 and shall cast forth that which is therein, and shall remain empty
84:5 and shall obey its Lord, and shall be capable thereof
84:6 O man, verily labouring thou labourest to meet thy Lord, and thou shalt meet Him
84:7 And he who shall have his book given into his right hand
84:8 shall be called to an easy account
84:9 and shall turn unto his family with joy
84:10 But he who shall have his book given him behind his back
84:11 shall invoke destruction to fall upon him
84:12 and he shall be sent into hell to be burned
84:13 because he rejoiced insolently amidst his family on earth
84:14 Verily he thought that he should never return unto God
84:15 Yea verily; but his Lord beheld him
84:16 Wherefore I swear by the redness of the sky after sun-set
84:17 and by the night, and the animals which it driveth together
84:18 and by the moon when she is at the full
84:19 ye shall surely be transferred successively from state to state
84:20 What aileth them, therefore, that they believe not the resurrection
84:21 and that, when the Koran is read unto them, they worship not
84:22 Yea: The unbelievers accuse the same of imposture
84:23 But God well knoweth the malice which they keep hidden in their breasts
84:24 Wherefore denounce unto them a grievous punishment
84:25 except those who believe and do good works: For them is prepared a never failing reward
