Muhammad Mahmoud Ghali rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the heaven will be cloven.
84:2 And will listen (submissively) to its Lord- and it will be truly bound to (do so)-
84:3 And when the earth will be widely extended,
84:4 And will cast forth what is in it and will void itself,
84:5 And will listen (submissively) to its Lord- and it will be truly bound to (do so)-
84:6 O you man, surely you are exerting yourself to your Lord with great exertion, then you will be meeting Him.
84:7 So, as for him who is brought his Book in his right (hand),
84:8 Then he will eventually be reckoned an easy reckoning,
84:9 And he will turn over (Ingalaba: Literally: turn over) to his family pleased.
84:10 And as for him who is brought his Book beyond his back,
84:11 Then he will call for detriment,
84:12 And he will roast at a Blaze.
84:13 Surely he (once lived) among his family, pleasured;
84:14 Surely he surmised he would never recede (Or: return).
84:15 Yes indeed, his Lord has been Ever-Beholding (of) him.
84:16 Yet no! I swear by the twilight,
84:17 And the night and whatever load it has,
84:18 And the moon when it grows full-
84:19 Indeed you will definitely ride state after state (i.e., travel from one stage "of life" to another).
84:20 For what reason then do they not believe?
84:21 And when the Qur'an is read to them, they do not prostrate themselves?*
84:22 No indeed, (but) the ones who have disbelieved are crying lies,
84:23 And Allah knows best whatever they heedfully harbor (in their breasts).
84:24 So give them tidings of a painful torment,
84:25 Except the ones who have believed and done deeds of righteousness- they will have a reward bountifully unfailing.
