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