Book 84


The Rending Asunder

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[84.1]

When the heaven bursts asunder,

[84.2]

And obeys its Lord and it must.

[84.3]

And when the earth is stretched,

[84.4]

And casts forth what is in it and becomes empty,

[84.5]

And obeys its Lord and it must.

[84.6]

O man!
surely you must strive (to attain) to your Lord,
a hard striving until you meet Him.

[84.7]

Then as to him who is given his book in his right hand,

[84.8]

He shall be reckoned with by an easy reckoning,

[84.9]

And he shall go back to his people joyful.

[84.10]

And as to him who is given his book behind his back,

[84.11]

He shall call for perdition,

[84.12]

And enter into burning fire.

[84.13]

Surely he was (erstwhile) joyful among his followers.

[84.14]

Surely he thought that he would never return.

[84.15]

Yea!
surely his Lord does ever see him.

[84.16]

But nay!
I swear by the sunset redness,

[84.17]

And the night and that which it drives on,

[84.18]

And the moon when it grows full,

[84.19]

That you shall most certainly enter one state after another.

[84.20]

But what is the matter with them that they do not believe,

[84.21]

And when the Quran is recited to them they do not make obeisance?

[84.22]

Nay!
those who disbelieve give the lie to the truth.

[84.23]

And Allah knows best what they hide,

[84.24]
So announce to them a painful punishment

[84.25]

Except those who believe and do good;
for them is a reward that shall never be cut off.
