Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah The Sundering, Splitting Open(al-Inshiqaq)
84:1 WHEN THE SKY is cleft asunder,
84:2 And hearkens to its Lord and is dutiful,
84:3 When the earth is stretched out taut
84:4 And throws out whatever it contains and is empty,
84:5 And hearkens to its Lord and is dutiful,
84:6 O man, you have to strive and go on striving towards your Lord, then will you meet Him.
84:7 And he who is given his ledger in his right hand
84:8 Will have an easy reckoning,
84:9 And will return to his people full of joy.
84:10 But he who is given his ledger from behind his back
84:11 Will pray for death,
84:12 But will be roasted in the fire.
84:13 He lived rejoicing among his people,
84:14 Never thinking he will return.
84:15 Why not? His Lord was always watching him.
84:16 So indeed I call to witness the evening twilight,
84:17 And the night and all it gathers,
84:18 And the moon when at the full,
84:19 That you will climb from stage to stage.
84:20 So, wherefore do they not believe?
84:21 And when the Qur'an is recited to them do not bow in adoration?
84:22 In fact the unbelievers disavow.
84:23 But God knows what they harbour in their breasts.
84:24 So give them news of painful punishment,
84:25 Except those who believe and do the right: For them there is reward unending.
