Maududi rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 When the sky is rent asunder
84:2 and hearkens to the command of its Lord, doing what it should;
84:3 and when the earth is stretched out
84:4 and casts out what is within it and is emptied,
84:5 and hearkens to the command of its Lord, doing what it should.
84:6 O man, you are striving unto your Lord and you will meet Him.
84:7 Whoever is given the Record in his right hand
84:8 shall be called to an easy accounting,
84:9 and shall return to his people joyfully.
84:10 But he who is given the Record behind his back,
84:11 shall cry for "perdition,"
84:12 and will enter the Blazing Fire.
84:13 He used to live joyfully among his people,
84:14 thinking he would never revert (to Us).
84:15 But no; (how would he not revert)? His Lord was ever watching him.
84:16 Nay; I swear by the twilight;
84:17 and by the night and what it enfolds,
84:18 and by the moon, when it reaches its fullness:
84:19 you shall proceed onwards from stage to stage.
84:20 So, what is the matter with them that they do not believe,
84:21 and when the Qur´an is recited to them, they do not prostrate themselves?
84:22 Instead, the unbelievers reject it, calling it a lie.
84:23 Allah knows best what they are accumulating (in their Record).
84:24 So give them the good news of a painful chastisement,
84:25 except for those who believe and do good deeds. Theirs shall be an unending reward.
