1. إِذَا السَّمَاءُ انشَقَّتْ
When the Sky is rent asunder

2. وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ
And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord and it must needs (do so)- –

3. وَإِذَا الْأَرْضُ مُدَّتْ
And when the Earth is flattened out

4. وَأَلْقَتْ مَا فِيهَا وَتَخَلَّتْ
And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty

5. وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ
And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord and it must needs (do so)- -(then will come Home the full Reality).

6. يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَدْحًا فَمُلَاقِيهِ
O thou man! verily thou art ever toiling on towards the Lord painfully toiling but thou shalt meet Him.

7. فَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ بِيَمِينِهِ
Then he who is given his Record in his Right hand

8. فَسَوْفَ يُحَاسَبُ حِسَابًا يَسِيرًا
Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning

9. وَيَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ مَسْرُورًا
And he will turn to his people rejoicing!

10. وَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ وَرَاءَ ظَهْرِهِ
But he who is given his Record behind his back

11. فَسَوْفَ يَدْعُو ثُبُورًا
Soon will he cry for Perdition

12. وَيَصْلَىٰ سَعِيرًا
And he will enter a Blazing Fire.

13. إِنَّهُ كَانَ فِي أَهْلِهِ مَسْرُورًا
Truly did he go about among his people rejoicing!

14. إِنَّهُ ظَنَّ أَن لَّن يَحُورَ
Truly did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!

15. بَلَىٰ إِنَّ رَبَّهُ كَانَ بِهِ بَصِيرًا
Nay nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!

16. فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِالشَّفَقِ
So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;

17. وَاللَّيْلِ وَمَا وَسَقَ
The Night and its Homing;

18. وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا اتَّسَقَ
And the Moon in her Fullness;

19. لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَن طَبَقٍ
Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.

20. فَمَا لَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
What then is the matter with them that they believe not?

21. وَإِذَا قُرِئَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقُرْآنُ لَا يَسْجُدُونَ
And when the Qur’an is read to them they fall not prostrate.

22. بَلِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُكَذِّبُونَ
But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).

23. وَاللَّـهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُوعُونَ
But Allah has full Knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts).

24. فَبَشِّرْهُم بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ
So announce to them a Penalty Grievous

25. إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ
Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: for them is a Reward that will never fail.
