When the Stars are scattered;
When the planets are dispersed,
وَإِذَا الْبِحَارُ فُجِّرَتْ

And when the Graves are turned upside down;-
And the sepulchres are overturned,
عَلِمَتْ نَفْسٌ مَّا قَدَّمَتْ وَأَخَّرَتْ

(Then) shall each soul know what it hath sent forward and (what it hath) kept back.

يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ مَا غَرَّكَ بِرَبِّكَ الْكَرِيمِ
O man ! what has beguiled you from your Lord, the Gracious one,
O man! What has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficent?-
O man! What hath made thee careless concerning thy Lord, the Bountiful,
الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ فَسَوَّاكَ فَعَدَلَكَ
Who created you, then made you complete, then made you symmetrical?
Him Who created thee. Fashioned thee in due proportion, and gave thee a just bias;
Who created thee, then fashioned, then proportioned thee?
فِي أَيِّ صُورَةٍ مَّا شَاء رَكَّبَكَ
Into whatever form He pleased He constituted you.
In whatever Form He wills, does He put thee together.
Into whatsoever form He will, He casteth thee.
كَلَّا بَلْ تُكَذِّبُونَ بِالدِّينِ

إِنَّ الْأَبْرَارَ لَفِي نَعِيمٍ

يَصْلَوْنَهَا يَوْمَ الدِّينِ

Which they will enter on the Day of Judgment,
They will burn therein on the Day of Judgment,
وَمَا هُمْ عَنْهَا بِغَائِبِينَ
