82. The Cleaving Asund


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

  1. When the Sky is cleft asunder;

  2. When the Stars are scattered;

  3. When the Oceans are suffered to burstforth;

  4. And when the Graves are turned upsidedown;-

  5. (Then) shall each soul know what it hathsent forward and (what it hath) kept back.

  6. O man! What has seduced thee from thyLord Most Beneficent?-

  7. Him Who created thee. Fashioned thee indue proportion, and gave thee a just bias;

  8. In whatever Form He wills, does He putthee together.

  9. Day! nit ye do reject Right andJudgment!

  10. But verily over you (are appointedangels) to protect you,-

  11. Kind and honourable,- Writing down (yourdeeds):

  12. They know (and understand) all that yedo.

  13. As for the Righteous, they will be inbliss;

  14. And the Wicked - they will be in theFire,

  15. Which they will enter on the Day ofJudgment,

  16. And they will not be able to keep awaytherefrom.

  17. And what will explain to thee what theDay of Judgment is?

  18. Again, what will explain to thee whatthe Day of Judgment is?

  19. (It will be) the Day when no soul shallhave power (to do) aught for another: For the command, that Day, will be(wholly) with Allah.
