Sura 84, The Rupture (Al-Inshiqaaq)

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

[84:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[84:1] The time will come when the sky is ruptured.

[84:2] It will submit to its Lord and expire.

[84:3] The earth will be leveled.

[84:4] It will eject its contents, as it erupts.

[84:5] It will submit to its Lord and expire.

[84:6] O humans, you are irreversibly heading for a meeting with your Lord.

[84:7] As for the one who receives his record in his right hand,

[84:8] His reckoning will be easy.

[84:9] He will return to his people joyfully.

[84:10] As for the one who receives his record behind his back,

[84:11] He will be ridden with remorse.

[84:12] And will burn in Hell.

[84:13] He used to act arrogantly among his people.

[84:14] He thought that he will never be called to account.

[84:15] Yes indeed, his Lord was Seer of him.

[84:16] I solemnly swear by the rosy dusk.

[84:17] And the night as it spreads.

[84:18] And the moon and its phases.

[84:19] You will move from stage to stage.

[84:20] Why do they not believe?

[84:21] And when the Quran is recited to them, they do not fall prostrate.

[84:22] This is because those who disbelieved are rejecting (the Quran).

[84:23] GOD is fully aware of their innermost thoughts.

[84:24] Promise them painful retribution.

[84:25] As for those who believed and led a righteous life, they receive a recompense that is well-deserved.
