84:1  When the heaven was split open
84:2  and gave ear to its Lord as it will be justly disposed to do
84:3  and when the earth stretches out
84:4  and cast what is in it and voided itself
84:5  and gave ear to its Lord as it will be justly disposed to do,
84:6  O human being! Truly, thou art one who is laboring towards thy Lord laboriously and thou wilt be one who encounters Him.
84:7  And as for him who will be given his book in his right hand,
84:8  then, he will be made a reckoning, an easy reckoning,
84:9  and will turn about to his people as one who is joyous.
84:10  But for whoever will be given his book behind his back,
84:11  he will call for damnation
84:12  and roast in a blaze.
84:13  He had been one who is joyous with his people.
84:14  Truly, he thought he would never retreat.
84:15  Yea! Truly, his Lord had been seeing him.
84:16  So no! I swear an oath by the twilight
84:17  and by the night and whatever it enveloped
84:18  and by the moon when it was full
84:19  that you will, truly, ride plane after plane.
84:20  Then, what is for them who believe not
84:21  when the Quran was recited to them, they prostrate not themselves?‡
84:22  Nay! Those who were ungrateful deny,
84:23  but God is greater in knowledge of what they amass.
84:24  So give them good tidings of a painful punishment.
84:25  But those who believed and did as the ones in accord with morality, for them is compensation, that which is unfailing.
