إِذَا السَّمَاءُ انْفَطَرَتْ
WHEN THE SKY is cleft asunder, (1)
وَإِذَا الْكَوَاكِبُ انْتَثَرَتْ
and when the stars are scattered, (2)
وَإِذَا الْبِحَارُ فُجِّرَتْ
and when the seas burst beyond their bounds, (3)
وَإِذَا الْقُبُورُ بُعْثِرَتْ
and when the graves are overturned – (4)
عَلِمَتْ نَفْسٌ مَا قَدَّمَتْ وَأَخَّرَتْ
every human being will [at last] comprehend what he has sent ahead and what he has held back [in this world]. (5)
يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنْسَانُ مَا غَرَّكَ بِرَبِّكَ الْكَرِيمِ
O MAN! What is it that lures thee away from thy bountiful Sustainer, (6)
الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ فَسَوَّاكَ فَعَدَلَكَ
who has created thee, and formed thee in accordance with what thou art meant to be, and shaped thy nature in just proportions, (7)
فِي أَيِّ صُورَةٍ مَا شَاءَ رَكَّبَكَ
having put thee together in whatever form He willed [thee to have]? (8)
كَلَّا بَلْ تُكَذِّبُونَ بِالدِّينِ
Nay, [O men,] but you [are lured away from God whenever you are tempted to] give the lie to [God's] Judgment! (9)
وَإِنَّ عَلَيْكُمْ لَحَافِظِينَ
And yet, verily, there are ever-watchful forces over you, (10)
