Surah Al-Infitar: The Splitting Apart
Revealed at Makkah
With the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Rewarding
WHEN the sky is cleft asunder,
and when the planets are dispersed,
and when the rivers are made to flow;
and when the graves are laid open—
soul will know what it has sent forward, and it has left behind.
O you men! what has deceived you about your Rabb, the most Gracious,
Who has created you, then fashioned you, then gave you right proportion—
in whatever shape He pleased He shaped you?
No, you of course belie the Judgment.
And surely over you there are indeed guardians,
honored ones, recorders,
they know what you do.
Surely the virtuous will indeed be in a bliss,
and surely the wicked will of course be in the fierce Fire;
they will enter it on the day of Judgment.
And they will not be absent from there.
Ha! what will make you realize what the day of Judgment is?
Again, what will make you realize what the day of Judgment is?
The day whereon a soul will not have power to do anything for another soul. And the command on that day will belong to Allah.
