;

1 . When the Sky is cleft asunder;

2 . When the Stars are scattered;

3 . When the Oceans are suffered to burst forth;

4 . And when the Graves are turned upside down;-

5 . (Then) shall each soul know what it hath sent forward and (what it hath) kept back.

6 . O man! What has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficent?-

7 . Him Who created thee. Fashioned thee in due proportion, and gave thee a just bias;

8 . In whatever Form He wills, does He put thee together.

9 . Nay! But ye do reject Right and Judgment!

10 . But verily over you (are appointed angels) to protect you,-

11 . Kind and honourable,- Writing down (your deeds):

12 . They know (and understand) all that ye do.

13 . As for the Righteous, they will be in bliss;

14 . And the Wicked - they will be in the Fire,

15 . Which they will enter on the Day of Judgment,

16 . And they will not be able to keep away therefrom.

17 . And what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is?

18 . Again, what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is?

19 . (It will be) the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) aught for another: For the command, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allah.
