Section 1

[Inshiqaq 84:1] When the heaven breaks apart.

[Inshiqaq 84:2] And it listens to the command of its Lord - and that befits it.

[Inshiqaq 84:3] And when the earth is spread out.

[Inshiqaq 84:4] And it unburdens itself of all that is in it, and becomes empty.

[Inshiqaq 84:5] And it listens to the command of its Lord - and that befits it.

[Inshiqaq 84:6] O man, indeed you have to surely run towards your Lord, and to meet him.

[Inshiqaq 84:7] So whoever is given his record of deeds in his right hand -

[Inshiqaq 84:8] Soon an easy account will be taken from him.

[Inshiqaq 84:9] And he will return to his family rejoicing.

[Inshiqaq 84:10] And whoever is given his record of deeds behind his back -

[Inshiqaq 84:11] Soon he will pray for death.

[Inshiqaq 84:12] And will go into the blazing fire.

[Inshiqaq 84:13] Indeed he used to rejoice in his home.

[Inshiqaq 84:14] He assumed that he does not have to return.

[Inshiqaq 84:15] Surely yes, why not? Indeed his Lord is seeing him.

[Inshiqaq 84:16] So by oath of the late evening’s light.

[Inshiqaq 84:17] And by oath of the night and all that gathers in it.

[Inshiqaq 84:18] And by oath of the moon when it is full.

[Inshiqaq 84:19] You will surely go up level by level.

[Inshiqaq 84:20] What is the matter with them that they do not accept faith?

[Inshiqaq 84:21] And when the Qur’an is recited to them, they do not fall prostrate? (Command of Prostration # 13)

[Inshiqaq 84:22] In fact the disbelievers keep denying.

[Inshiqaq 84:23] And Allah well knows what they conceal in their hearts.

[Inshiqaq 84:24] Therefore give them the glad tidings of a painful punishment.

[Inshiqaq 84:25] Except those who believed and did good deeds - for them is a reward that will never end.
