In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
When the sky is rent asunder إِذَا ٱلسَّمَآءُ ٱنشَقَّتْ۝۱
and hearkens to the command of its Lord, doing what it should; وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ ۝۲
and when the earth is stretched out وَإِذَا ٱلْأَرْضُ مُدَّتْ ۝۳
and casts out what is within it and is emptied, وَأَلْقَتْ مَا فِيهَا وَتَخَلَّتْ ۝۴
and hearkens to the command of its Lord, doing what it should. وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ ۝۵
O man, you are striving unto your Lord and you will meet Him. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَدْحًا فَمُلَٰقِيهِ ۝۶
Whoever is given the Record in his right hand فَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِىَ كِتَٰبَهُۥ بِيَمِينِهِۦ ۝۷
shall be called to an easy accounting, فَسَوْفَ يُحَاسَبُ حِسَابًا يَسِيرًا ۝۸
and shall return to his people joyfully. وَيَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰٓ أَهْلِهِۦ مَسْرُورًا ۝۹
But he who is given the Record behind his back, وَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِىَ كِتَٰبَهُۥ وَرَآءَ ظَهْرِهِۦ ۝۱۰
shall cry for “perdition,” فَسَوْفَ يَدْعُوا۟ ثُبُورًا ۝۱۱
and will enter the Blazing Fire. وَيَصْلَىٰ سَعِيرًا ۝۱۲
He used to live joyfully among his people, إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فِىٓ أَهْلِهِۦ مَسْرُورًا ۝۱۳
thinking he would never revert (to Us). إِنَّهُۥ ظَنَّ أَن لَّن يَحُورَ ۝۱۴
But no; (how would he not revert)? His Lord was ever watching him. بَلَىٰٓ إِنَّ رَبَّهُۥ كَانَ بِهِۦ بَصِيرًا ۝۱۵
Nay; I swear by the twilight; فَلَآ أُقْسِمُ بِٱلشَّفَقِ ۝۱۶
and by the night and what it enfolds, وَٱلَّيْلِ وَمَا وَسَقَ ۝۱۷
and by the moon, when it reaches its fullness: وَٱلْقَمَرِ إِذَا ٱتَّسَقَ ۝۱۸
you shall proceed onwards from stage to stage. لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَن طَبَقٍ ۝۱۹
So, what is the matter with them that they do not believe, فَمَا لَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ ۝۲۰
and when the Qur'an is recited to them, they do not prostrate themselves? وَإِذَا قُرِئَ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلْقُرْءَانُ لَا يَسْجُدُونَ السجدة
Instead, the unbelievers reject it, calling it a lie. بَلِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ يُكَذِّبُونَ ۝۲۲
Allah knows best what they are accumulating (in their Record). وَٱللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُوعُونَ ۝۲۳
So give them the good news of a painful chastisement, فَبَشِّرْهُم بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ ۝۲۴
except for those who believe and do good deeds. Theirs shall be an unending reward. إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍۭ ۝۲۵
