Quran & Tafseer, The Noble Quran / Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

(بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم)

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

إِذَا السَّمَاءُ انفَطَرَتْ (1)

[82:1] When the sky will be cleft asunder,

وَإِذَا الْكَوَاكِبُ انتَثَرَتْ (2)

[82:2] and when the stars will disperse,

وَإِذَا الْبِحَارُ فُجِّرَتْ (3)

[82:3] and when the seas will be burst forth,

وَإِذَا الْقُبُورُ بُعْثِرَتْ (4)

[82:4] and when the graves will be overturned,

عَلِمَتْ نَفْسٌ مَا قَدَّمَتْ وَأَخَّرَتْ (5)

[82:5] then one will know what he sent ahead and what he left behind.

يَا أَيُّهَا الإِنسَانُ مَا غَرَّكَ بِرَبِّكَ الْكَرِيمِ (6)

[82:6] O man! What has deceived you about your Gracious Lord,

الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ فَسَوَّاكَ فَعَدَلَكَ (7)

[82:7] who created you, then perfected you, then brought you in due proportion?

فِي أَيِّ صُورَةٍ مَا شَاءَ رَكَّبَكَ (8)

[82:8] He composed you in whichever form He willed.

كَلاَّ بَلْ تُكَذِّبُونَ بِالدِّينِ (9)

[82:9] Never! (i.e. one should never be heedless towards him.) But you deny the Requital,

وَإِنَّ عَلَيْكُمْ لَحَافِظِينَ (10)

[82:10] while (appointed) over you there are watchers,

كِرَاماً كَاتِبِينَ (11)

[82:11] who are noble, writers (of the deeds),

يَعْلَمُونَ مَا تَفْعَلُونَ (12)

[82:12] who know whatever you do.

إِنَّ الأَبْرَارَ لَفِي نَعِيمٍ (13)

[82:13] Surely the righteous will be in bliss,

وَإِنَّ الْفُجَّارَ لَفِي جَحِيمٍ (14)

[82:14] and the sinners in Hell,

يَصْلَوْنَهَا يَوْمَ الدِّينِ (15)

[82:15] in which they will enter on the Day of Requital,

وَمَا هُمْ عَنْهَا بِغَائِبِينَ (16)

[82:16] and they will not (be able to) keep away from it.

وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا يَوْمُ الدِّينِ (17)

[82:17] And what may let you know what the Day of Requital is?

ثُمَّ مَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا يَوْمُ الدِّينِ (18)

[82:18] Again, what may let you know what the Day of Requital is?

يَوْمَ لا تَمْلِكُ نَفْسٌ لِنَفْسٍ شَيْئاً وَالأَمْرُ يَوْمَئِذٍ لِلَّهِ (19)

[82:19] A Day when no one will have power to do anything for another! And command, on that Day, will belong to Allah (alone).
