1When the heaven is cleft asunder,
2When the planets are dispersed,
3When the seas are poured forth,
4And the sepulchres are overturned,
5A soul will know what it hath sent before (it) and what left behind.
6O man! What hath made thee careless concerning thy Lord, the Bountiful,
7Who created thee, then fashioned, then proportioned thee ?
8Into whatsoever form He will, He casteth thee.
9Nay, but ye deny the Judgment.
10Lo! there are above you guardians,
11Generous and recording,
12Who know (all) that ye do.
13Lo! the righteous verily will be in delight.
14And lo! the wicked verily will be in hell;
15They will burn therein on the Day of Judgment,
16And will not be absent thence.
17Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Day of Judgment is!
18Again, what will convey unto thee what the Day of Judgment is!
19A day on which no soul hath power at all for any (other) soul. The (absolute) command on that day is Allah's.
