Sura 82, The Shattering (Al-Infitaar), Quran, Khalifa translation

Sura 82, The Shattering (Al-Infitaar)

(from: Quran The Final Testament, by Rashad Khalifa, PhD.)

[82:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[82:1] When the heaven is shattered.

[82:2] The planets are scattered.

[82:3] The oceans are exploded.

[82:4] The graves are opened.

[82:5] Every soul will find out what caused it to advance, and what caused it to regress.

    Reflect on God's Creations

[82:6] O you human being, what diverted you from your Lord Most Honorable?

[82:7] The One who created you, designed you, and perfected you.

[82:8] In whatever design He chose, He constructed it.

[82:9] Indeed, you disbelieve in the religion.

[82:10] Oblivious to the fact that there are (invisible) keepers around you.

[82:11] They are honest recorders.

[82:12] They record everything you do.

[82:13] Surely, the pious have deserved bliss.

[82:14] While the wicked have deserved Hell.

[82:15] Will incur it on the Day of Judgment.

[82:16] They never leave it.

[82:17] Awesome is the Day of Judgment.

[82:18] What a day; the Day of Judgment!

[82:19] That is the day when no soul can help another soul, and all decisions, on that day, will belong to GOD.
