Al-Infitar | The Cleaving

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[82:1] When the sky will be cleft asunder,

[82:2] and when the stars will disperse,

[82:3] and when the seas will be burst forth,

[82:4] and when the graves will be overturned,

[82:5] then one will know what he sent ahead and what he left behind.

[82:6] O man! What has deceived you about your Gracious Lord,

[82:7] who created you, then perfected you, then brought you in due proportion?

[82:8] He composed you in whichever form He willed.

[82:9] Never! (i.e. one should never be heedless towards him.) But you deny the Requital,

[82:10] while (appointed) over you there are watchers,

[82:11] who are noble, writers (of the deeds),

[82:12] who know whatever you do.

[82:13] Surely the righteous will be in bliss,

[82:14] and the sinners in Hell,

[82:15] in which they will enter on the Day of Requital,

[82:16] and they will not (be able to) keep away from it.

[82:17] And what may let you know what the Day of Requital is?

[82:18] Again, what may let you know what the Day of Requital is?

[82:19] A Day when no one will have power to do anything for another! And command, on that Day, will belong to Allah (alone).
