In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

84:1. When the sky is rent asunder,

84:2. And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-

84:3. And when the earth is flattened out,

84:4. And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,

84:5. And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full reality).

84:6. O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.

84:7. Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,

84:8. Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,

84:9. And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!

84:10. But he who is given his Record behind his back,-

84:11. Soon will he cry for perdition,

84:12. And he will enter a Blazing Fire.

84:13. Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!

84:14. Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!

84:15. Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!

84:16. So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;

84:17. The Night and its Homing;

84:18. And the Moon in her fullness:

84:19. Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.

84:20. What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-

84:21. And when the Qur'an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,

84:22. But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).

84:23. But God has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)

84:24. So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,

84:25. Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a Reward that will never fail.
