[84.1] When the heaven is
[84.2] And attentive to her Lord in fear,
[84.3] And when the earth is spread out
[84.4] And hath cast out all that was in her, and is empty
[84.5] And attentive to her Lord in fear!
[84.6] Thou, verily, O man, art working toward thy Lord a work
which thou wilt meet (in His presence).
[84.7] Then whoso is given his account in his right hand
[84.8] He truly will receive an easy reckoning
[84.9] And will return unto his folk in joy.
[84.10] But whoso is given his account behind his back,
[84.11] He surely will invoke destruction
[84.12] And be thrown to scorching fire.
[84.13] He verily lived joyous with his folk,
[84.14] He verily deemed that he would never return (unto
[84.15] Nay, but lo! his Lord is ever looking on him!
[84.16] Oh, I swear by the afterglow of sunset,
[84.17] And by the night and all that it enshroudeth,
[84.18] And by the moon when she is at the full,
[84.19] That ye shall journey on from plane to plane.
[84.20] What aileth them, then, that they believe not
[84.21] And, when the Qur'an is recited unto them, worship not
[84.22] Nay, but those who disbelieve will deny;
[84.23] And Allah knoweth best what they are hiding.
[84.24] So give them tidings of a painful doom,
[84.25] Save those who believe and do good works, for theirs is
a reward unfailing.
