Bimsillah Hir Rahmaan Nir Raheem

Allah – beginning with the name of – the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

1 إِذَا السَّمَاءُ انشَقَّتْ
When the heaven breaks apart.
2 وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ
And it listens to the command of its Lord – and that befits it.
3 وَإِذَا الْأَرْضُ مُدَّتْ
And when the earth is spread out.
4 وَأَلْقَتْ مَا فِيهَا وَتَخَلَّتْ
And it unburdens itself of all that is in it, and becomes empty.
5 وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ
And it listens to the command of its Lord – and that befits it.
6 يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَدْحًا فَمُلَاقِيهِ
O man, indeed you have to surely run towards your Lord, and to meet him.
7 فَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ بِيَمِينِهِ
So whoever is given his record of deeds in his right hand –
8 فَسَوْفَ يُحَاسَبُ حِسَابًا يَسِيرًا
Soon an easy account will be taken from him.
9 وَيَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ مَسْرُورًا
And he will return to his family rejoicing.
10 وَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ وَرَاءَ ظَهْرِهِ
And whoever is given his record of deeds behind his back –
11 فَسَوْفَ يَدْعُو ثُبُورًا
Soon he will pray for death.
12 وَيَصْلَىٰ سَعِيرًا
And will go into the blazing fire.
13 إِنَّهُ كَانَ فِي أَهْلِهِ مَسْرُورًا
Indeed he used to rejoice in his home.
14 إِنَّهُ ظَنَّ أَن لَّن يَحُورَ
He assumed that he does not have to return.
15 بَلَىٰ إِنَّ رَبَّهُ كَانَ بِهِ بَصِيرًا
Surely yes, why not? Indeed his Lord is seeing him.
16 فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِالشَّفَقِ
So by oath of the late evening’s light.
17 وَاللَّيْلِ وَمَا وَسَقَ
And by oath of the night and all that gathers in it.
18 وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا اتَّسَقَ
And by oath of the moon when it is full.
19 لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَن طَبَقٍ
You will surely go up level by level.
20 فَمَا لَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
What is the matter with them that they do not accept faith?
21 وَإِذَا قُرِئَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقُرْآنُ لَا يَسْجُدُونَ ۩
And when the Qur’an is recited to them, they do not fall prostrate? (Command of Prostration # 13)
22 بَلِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُكَذِّبُونَ
In fact the disbelievers keep denying.
23 وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُوعُونَ
And Allah well knows what they conceal in their hearts.
24 فَبَشِّرْهُم بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ
Therefore give them the glad tidings of a painful punishment.
25 إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ
Except those who believed and did good deeds – for them is a reward that will never end.
