82. The Cleaving | al-Infitar

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 any thing for another! And command, on that Day, will belong to Allah (alone).
