1 . When the heaven is sundered.
2 . And it hearkeneth to its Lord, and is duteous,
3 . And when the earth shall be stretched forth.
4 . And shall cast forth that which is therein, and shall become empty.
5 . And it hearkeneth to its Lord, and is duteous.
6 . O man! verily thou art toiling toward thy Lord a painful toiling, and art about to meet Him.
7 . Then as to him who shall be given his book in his right hand -
8 . His account shall presently be taken by an easy reckoning.
9 . And he shall return Unto his people joyfully.
10 . And as to him who shall be given his book from behind his back-
11 . He shall presently call for death,
12 . And he shall roast into a Blaze.
13 . Verily he was among his people joyous.
14 . Verily he imagined that he would not be back.
15 . Yea! his Lord had ever been beholding him.
16 . I swear by the afterglow of sunset,
17 . And by the night and that which it driveth together,
18 . And by the moon when she becometh full.
19 . Surely ye shall ride layer upon layer.
20 . What aileth them then, that they believe not,
21 . And that, when the Qur´an is read Unto them, they prostrate not them-selves!
22 . Yea those who disbelieve belie.
23 . Whereas Allah knoweth best that which they cherish.
24 . Wherefore announce thou Unto them a torment afflictive.
25 . But those who believe and work righteous works, theirs shall be a hire unending.
