Surah Al-Inshiqaq (The Splitting Asunder) - Aya count 25

إِذَا ٱلسَّمَاۤءُ ٱنشَقَّتۡ ﴿١﴾

When the sky is rent asunder,

وَأَذِنَتۡ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتۡ ﴿٢﴾

And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-

وَإِذَا ٱلۡأَرۡضُ مُدَّتۡ ﴿٣﴾

And when the earth is flattened out,

وَأَلۡقَتۡ مَا فِیهَا وَتَخَلَّتۡ ﴿٤﴾

And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,

وَأَذِنَتۡ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتۡ ﴿٥﴾

And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full reality).

یَــٰۤـأَیُّهَا ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَدۡحࣰا فَمُلَـٰقِیهِ ﴿٦﴾

O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.

فَأَمَّا مَنۡ أُوتِیَ كِتَـٰبَهُۥ بِیَمِینِهِۦ ﴿٧﴾

Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,

فَسَوۡفَ یُحَاسَبُ حِسَابࣰا یَسِیرࣰا ﴿٨﴾

Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,

وَیَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰۤ أَهۡلِهِۦ مَسۡرُورࣰا ﴿٩﴾

And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!

وَأَمَّا مَنۡ أُوتِیَ كِتَـٰبَهُۥ وَرَاۤءَ ظَهۡرِهِۦ ﴿١٠﴾

But he who is given his Record behind his back,-

فَسَوۡفَ یَدۡعُواْ ثُبُورࣰا ﴿١١﴾

Soon will he cry for perdition,

وَیَصۡلَىٰ سَعِیرًا ﴿١٢﴾

And he will enter a Blazing Fire.

إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فِیۤ أَهۡلِهِۦ مَسۡرُورًا ﴿١٣﴾

Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!

إِنَّهُۥ ظَنَّ أَن لَّن یَحُورَ ﴿١٤﴾

Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!

بَلَىٰۤۚ إِنَّ رَبَّهُۥ كَانَ بِهِۦ بَصِیرࣰا ﴿١٥﴾

Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!

فَلَاۤ أُقۡسِمُ بِٱلشَّفَقِ ﴿١٦﴾

So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;

وَٱلَّیۡلِ وَمَا وَسَقَ ﴿١٧﴾

The Night and its Homing;

وَٱلۡقَمَرِ إِذَا ٱتَّسَقَ ﴿١٨﴾

And the Moon in her fullness:

لَتَرۡكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَن طَبَقࣲ ﴿١٩﴾

Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.

فَمَا لَهُمۡ لَا یُؤۡمِنُونَ ﴿٢٠﴾

What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-

وَإِذَا قُرِئَ عَلَیۡهِمُ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ لَا یَسۡجُدُونَ ۩ ﴿٢١﴾

And when the Qur'an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,

بَلِ ٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُواْ یُكَذِّبُونَ ﴿٢٢﴾

But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).

وَٱللَّهُ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَا یُوعُونَ ﴿٢٣﴾

But Allah has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)

فَبَشِّرۡهُم بِعَذَابٍ أَلِیمٍ ﴿٢٤﴾

So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,

إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ ﴿٢٥﴾

Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a Reward that will never fail.
