In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful
84:1 When the sky is rent asunder,
84:2 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-
84:3 And when the earth is flattened out,
84:4 And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,
84:5 And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full reality).
84:6 O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.
84:7 Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,
84:8 Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,
84:9 And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!
84:10 But he who is given his Record behind his back,-
84:11 Soon will he cry for perdition,
84:12 And he will enter a Blazing Fire.
84:13 Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!
84:14 Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!
84:15 Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!
84:16 So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;
84:17 The Night and its Homing;
84:18 And the Moon in her fullness:
84:19 Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.
84:20 What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-
84:21 And when the Qur'an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,
84:22 But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).
84:23 But God has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)
84:24 So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,
84:25 Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a Reward that will never fail.
