84-Ripped Open / Al-Inshiqaq:

In God’s Name, whose Mercy is Great and Continuous:

(84:1)   When the sky rips open obediently,

(84:2)   as it listens and follows My commands immediately;

(84:3)   when the earth is flattened

(84:4)   and throws out everyone onto the surface directly,

(84:5)   as it listens and obeys Me completely, then you will know the truth of this warning.

(84:6)   Oh mankind, you face the hardships of life, and then you will meet Me standing.

(84:7)   Then whoever is given their book of deeds in their right hand

(84:8)   will have an easy accounting.

(84:9)   They will return to their family happy with the reward they will be getting.

(84:10) And those who receive their book in their left hand, chained behind their back,

(84:11) will wish for death,

(84:12) but go to Hell for an eternity,

(84:13) because they lived a sinful carefree life with their family.

(84:14) They thought they would not be brought back from death to stand in front of Me.

(84:15) They will be brought back. I see all that they’re doing and nothing is hidden from Me.

(84:16) I swear by the sunset,

(84:17) and by the night and everything that collects in it,

(84:18) and by the moon at its fullest,

(84:19) that they will go from stage to stage in this life to the next. 

(84:20) So what is wrong with them that they don’t believe and submit?

(84:21) And when the Quran is recited they don’t prostrate and benefit?

(84:22) Instead they say My messenger is lying.

(84:23) I know what, in their sinful hearts, they are hiding.

(84:24) So give them the news that they will have an eternal life that is painful and punishing,

(84:25) but if they believe and do good deeds, then they will have a reward with no ending.
