بِسْمِ ٱللَّـهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the name of God, the Almighty,1 the Merciful.

إِذَا ٱلسَّمَآءُ ٱنشَقَّتْ

842

1 When the sky is split asunder

وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ

2 And hearkens to its Lord, as it must,1

وَإِذَا ٱلْأَرْضُ مُدَّتْ

3 And when the earth is spread out

وَأَلْقَتْ مَا فِيهَا وَتَخَلَّتْ

4 And casts forth all that is in it and is empty,

وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ

5 And hearkens to its Lord, as it must––1

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَدْحًا فَمُلَـٰقِيهِ

6 O man: thou art toiling towards thy Lord with labour, and wilt meet Him!

فَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِىَ كِتَـٰبَهُۥ بِيَمِينِهِۦ

7 Then as for him who is given his writ1 in his right hand:

فَسَوْفَ يُحَاسَبُ حِسَابًا يَسِيرًا

8 He will be called to account with an easy reckoning,

وَيَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰٓ أَهْلِهِۦ مَسْرُورًا

9 And he will return to his people in happiness.

وَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِىَ كِتَـٰبَهُۥ وَرَآءَ ظَهْرِهِۦ

10 And as for him who is given his writ1 behind his back:

فَسَوْفَ يَدْعُوا۟ ثُبُورًا

11 He will call for destruction,

وَيَصْلَىٰ سَعِيرًا

12 And burn in an inferno.

إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فِىٓ أَهْلِهِۦ مَسْرُورًا

13 He was among his people in happiness;

إِنَّهُۥ ظَنَّ أَن لَّن يَحُورَ

14 He thought he would never return.1

بَلَىٰٓ إِنَّ رَبَّهُۥ كَانَ بِهِۦ بَصِيرًا

15 Verily,1 his Lord saw him.

فَلَآ أُقْسِمُ بِٱلشَّفَقِ

16 Then do I swear by the twilight glow!

وَٱلَّيْلِ وَمَا وَسَقَ

17 And by the night and what it envelops!1

وَٱلْقَمَرِ إِذَا ٱتَّسَقَ

18 And by the moon when it is full!1

لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَن طَبَقٍ

19 You will embark upon stage after stage!1

فَمَا لَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ

20 Then what ails them that they do not believe,1

وَإِذَا قُرِئَ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلْقُرْءَانُ لَا يَسْجُدُونَ

21 And when the Qur’an1 is recited to them, do not submit?2

بَلِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ يُكَذِّبُونَ

22 The truth is,1 those who ignore warning2 deny,

وَٱللَّـهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُوعُونَ

23 And God best knows what they hoard.1

فَبَشِّرْهُم بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ

24 So give thou them tidings1 of a painful punishment,

إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍۭ

25 Save those who heed warning1 and do righteous deeds — they have a reward unending.
