Al-muntakhab fi tafsir al-Qur'an al-Karim rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
---
84:1 When once the heaven is split asunder*
84:2 In obedience to the command of its Creator and in payment of its duty to Him
84:3 And when the earth is stretched out,
84:4 And disgorges its contents and empties itself of the dead,
84:5 In obedience to the command of its Creator and in payment of its duty to Him; there and then shall people be adjudged.
84:6 Remember O man, you are arduously labouring and painfully toiling toward your Creator Whom you shall meet in the end.
84:7 Then he who is given his book bearing his record in his right hand will have no cause to apprehend.
84:8 His reckoning will be gracefully conducted,
84:9 And to his people will he go back rejoicing and greatly delighted.
84:10 But he who is given his book, bearing his record in his left hand from the back,
84:11 Will wish he could perish,
84:12 He will suffer the blazes.
84:13 How vainly did he rejoice among his people before and disregarded the concord of this discord !
84:14 He emphatically thought he would never return to his Creator, Whom he never recognized nor adored.
84:15 But in effect Allah, his Creator had kept him in view and was fully aware of his actions.
84:16 I swear by the glow of light and display of colour in the sky at the close of the day when the sun sets,
84:17 And by the night when life closes its lids and past events come to memory and the night-eyed can see and the night wanderer wanders about and the soul roves heaven’s realm,
84:18 And by the moon at full when its entire disk is illuminated thus dispelling the darkness of the night :
84:19 That you people shall ride from one circumstance to another and from one mode of existence to another and from a state of things, in which events stand disposed at a particular time, to another, and from one world to another; for in the actual system of things man changes, from one condition to another. He is governed by the inherent dominating power by which actions and feelings are determined.
84:20 What then prevents them -the infidels- from justifying faith as a conviction operative on their character and will!
84:21 When the Quran is recited to them, they neither open their hearts' ears nor their minds to stand in awe of Allah and bow to the ground in adoration!
84:22 No, but the infidels inherently deny the truth which they obstinately reject and the path of righteousness they tend to deviate from.
84:23 Allah is fully cognizant of what they conceal in their hearts and what is forged in their bosoms and He knows that infidelity is their very prevalent inclination.
84:24 Therefore, tell them O Muhammad to expect a condign punishment.
84:25 But not those who believed with hearts impressed with the image of religious and spiritual virtues and with deeds imprinted with wisdom and piety; these are destined to a fortune that is elate, and they will be requited with a reward which will not abate.
